Seven things

Brought to you by Daryl.

1- I do ocasionally do memes. I have a category for them.

2- I’ve worked at 24 places in the last 30 years (ok, now I’m starting to sound old). My current employ, at a bit under 2 years, is the third longest stay.

3- I’ve been perusing the Mother Earth New magazine (MEN) almost as long as I have been working. After my father had been a subscriber a couple years, he received an offer from them where you could purchase all of the back issues. He did. I’ve flipped through more the first 120 issues (20 years worth).

4- Paradise Found linked to an online MEN article about solar power. Once we have sold the other house, we will be looking at taking advantage of solar and/or wind power.

5- I watch It’s a Wonderful Life every year at Christmas. Helps put things in perspective, I find.

6- When I started college 20 years ago, it was the second time I had ‘moved away from home’.

7- I know how to milk a cow by hand. Actually, my experience at milking a cow was consistently quite painful, not because the cow was uncooperative, but because my fingers are long enough that they pressed on my palms on every squeeze.

I’ve seen this too many places to tag anyone. If you haven’t done it and want too, here’s your invite ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I love Mother Earth News! I’ve toyed with the idea of getting all back issues on disc, but wonder if I’d actually read them that way. When we move back to CA I hope to eventually implement at least some alternative power sources, but one of my first efforts will be to install a catchment tank so that we can have water at hand for watering our garden even during the parched summer months. With a well, we are always worried about using too much water!

  2. Hey there…just stopping by to say happy holidays to you and your family. ๐Ÿ™‚
