Right now Pooh Corners is a Possibility. We hope to make it an oasis of Peace and Self- Sufficiency.
It's the ultimate in recycling; the house and barn were built in 1936 as part of a local dairy farm. We have moved them onto our 20 acres in the mountains. As well as the buildings, we're doing solar power, a methane converter and a rainwater catchment system.

Well it's been an interesting winter. We both had a really bad case of flu. Got meds for it, then relapsed.
Cher is now into her third month of chemotherapy. Her last treatment is scheduled for early January 2010.
I got put in the hospital for the last week of April with internal bleeding. A week after I got out of the hospital they found a blood clot in my left leg. Couldn't hardly walk for over a week before the blood thinners started working. Oh boy six months minimum taking blood thinners. Here it is the first day of summer and the doctors still can't tell us why or where I was bleeding. Anyway, enough whining, here's some new pic's.
Here's the last kid to be born this year. A male we call Oreo. His twin was carried away buy one of our local Golden Eagles right after it was born(still wet). I was about 30 feet away and saw it happen. Sad.... But, then again awesome.
Also here is Lucille checking to see what Jeran is doing to (her) baby. It took Jeran about an hour to catch the little guy. Oreo kept hiding behind trees.
I finally got one of the coyotes that have been eating our chickens and turkeys.
It's the 7th of June. The pelt is shedding, that makes it pretty much worthless. No more free lunches for this coyote.
And the Elk finally showed up............. in April!
