    Savingdogs-Saving the chickens

    WOW SD, so sorry about your chickens :hugs Some of the feather loss may be due to the stress & it may be awhile before you get eggs again. I know with mine, they can get 'stressed' over even minor stuff & it's like they 'plug it up' for a few days. :rant Once they calm down & think it's safe...

    Stock up alert!

    I've often wondered if it would come to that again. My Ma & Auntie would talk of rationing & stamps & such when they were kids & not just for personal use stuff, but things like rubber too 'for the war effort' because everything went to the military first & the people got whatever was left, if...

    Since I have to work tonight, I'm taking out a pre-prepped meatloaf for the guys to just stick in the oven with some baked taters & some kind of veggie on the side. Oh so easy for everyone!

    Stock up alert!

    I heard this morning on the news about a coffee bean shortage. Did anyone else hear this? The story mentioned weather as being the culprit. If this is true you can expect the prices to skyrocket over the next few months. About a year or so ago I was paying somewhere around $5-$6 per 39oz can and...
