    Couple of deer recipes

    I'm sure there is a thread or two out there with deer recipes but I didn't want to spend all night looking for them. Got a small button buck opening day. I usually skin my deer, gut them, and then get the tenderloin out and head for the kitchen. I have always been disappointed because that...

    John Denver was wrong

    Life on the farm is NOT kinda laid back. Share your "farming" mishaps or misfortune. Raising chickens, gardening, and all kinds of farming type areas are welcome. My latest. Picked up a large, 4' long 28" or so diameter, piece of pecan tree with my tractor bucket. Very heavy. One of the...

    Chain saw sharpening

    OK folks, I've searched but can't find an answer to this. I'm not good at sharpening chains on a chainsaw. I can't seem to break the code or get the feel of it. I almost always end up getting cuts that curve to the left. I know one of the causes of this is uneven sharpening of the cutters...

    A comment on health care

    About a month ago I was doing something bad. I was eating those conversational hearts that we got on sale after Valentine's Day and I was biting down on them. I cracked a tooth as a result of it. Now move forward in time about a month. I had been nursing that cracked tooth...

    Outside cat is NO LONGER pregnant

    I have a cat that appears to be pregnant, didn't make it to the vet. She is an outside cat and we don't have a barn. My fuzzy memory tells me that inside cats tend to find a pile of dirty laundry to have their kittens in. I would guess that a barn cat would find a pile of straw. Does anyone...

    Communications during an emergency

    We might have discussed this already in other threads but I thought I would give this subject its own thread. This is something we realized (again) during the last ice storm. Many of us have cordless telephones and answering machines. When the power goes out so does your telephone if you are...

    What ads will this thread generate? organic

    I thought it might be interesting to see what ads this thread can generate. The thread about husbands generated an ad for bored housewifes. Hunting. Will hunting generate an ad? edited to add: Will keep changing the subject line.
