(Un?)Healthy Eating

(Un?)Healthy Eating

As I write this, I am eating my breakfast.  It consists of six eggs, soft cooked(actually overeasy), fried in bacon grease and gathered from my own chickens.  My coffee has raw goat milk in it and I made the bread that I am dipping in the soft runny yolk.  By recent bureaucratic actions and rulemaking, […]

Woke to the Sound of Thunder

Sunny Morning Birdsong

Image via Wikipedia I am listening to a northern mockingbird outside in the big maple below the garden, as I have most mornings this summer.  I delight each day in listening to his enthusiastic impressions of all the birds around here and some I can’t even identify.  I have even tried to count them several […]

coming home (6/18/10)

This is my first post of any kind in a really long time. My old blog was just getting started when I completely changed my life. I still need to edit my profile as a lot has changed. No longer am I the socially challenged bachelor living deep in the mountains of Penn’s great woods. […]

White Tail Flight

White Tail Flight

This morning my son and I are trying to replant the entire garden that has been destroyed by the deer. The deer here are a mixed blessing; venison is an important part of the local diet, and a part of the beauty of the local landscape. They are fewer here lately, some say due to […]
