Ruminations of the Easily Amused for 10/1/2014- Fall Housecleaning

Techie stuff ahead so if you're bored by this type of thing, you can skip. I was looking at the site the other day and thinking about a few things I want to fix. One of them is the comment system. I've before put on Disqus and have tried LiveFyre as opposed to our own comments saved on the site but didn't find it very satisfactory. Since that was last year, going to take a second look at putting on an external commenting system, so the comments may look funny for awhile. I used to have a video widget on here to watch the playlist of video clips I created on Youtube, think I will br.....

Ruminations of the Easily Amused for 9/28/2014 - MORE Donkey! 24x7

Hah! Friend loaned me some cattle panels and I think I'd like to make them into a fenced in area backing up to the chicken house-that would put the wall on the north side and then I could put up something to keep the wind down on the east, and maybe on the west. Then can make a roof coming off the chicken house for about 6 feet with some roofing panels on it for weather and all of that open to......

Ruminations of the Easily Amused for sep 25, 2014

Still working with younger donkey. Yesterday I got a small halter just for him, and some horse treats. Spending time today getting him used to being penned up and next thing I'm doing is to put wear a rope and carry the halter when I pet him and feed him treats. So far so good, he is really a smart donkey and very responsive. My goal is to try to get a halter on him by the end of the weekend. ......
