Some Thing Is Bugging Me

We managed to get most of the garden planted yesterday before the rain started.  Hopefully it will clear up today as I have an unending list of outside projects to do.

The bugs are back.  While we were fiddling in the garden they descended in hoards.  Jo-Ann finally had to resort to the protection of a bug suit.  She went buggy.


Facebook Sucks
Warning:  Rant Ahead

Mind you I've gone buggy.  Facebook has finally broken the last straw.  Applications that I cannot stop popping up.  Just Rude.  Makes me wonder what the whole purpose is.  An illusion of being in contact with "friends".  I really don't find Farmville or any of the apps anything more than time wasters.  Diversions?  Diversions from what? I tried to get rid of my Facebook account by using some online applications to do it.  Of course FB has a cease and desist order against them... That's enough.  How is it we've managed to sell our data, the digital representation of us, so cheaply.  These online companies, and blogger via Google is included, know more about us than you would believe. And the sole purpose is to sell advertising to people who want to convince us their latest and greatest hair shampoo or what not will change our lives.  And it never does.  Does it. Worse it leads to a total acceptance of un reality. We know the Sub sandwich we order from Subway will not be anything like the picture they present as the real thing - and we just accept it.
Rant Over..

The old bitty hens have moved to summer quarters and seem to be really enjoying it.  Plenty of fresh greens.


We had some supervisory help during the move.

" Uh this is where they are gonna come out, right?
Well Sure, just you wait right there..

The chicks are growing like crazy, and sure seem to enjoy their new digs.  Maybe next week they can try the great outdoors.
"OK you Gurls,  your supposed to be guarding the flock.  Have you got that?"
The piggies are growing, well like pigs!  The Gilt is very friendly. And will do anything for a back rub.
Hope your having a great day.
