  1. Hyperinflation/ Devaluing the dollar

    by , 02-21-2011 at 12:03 PM
    I had been hearing talk of the dollar not being the world currency. I had hoped since Republican's had gotten elected that they could enact some cuts to keep this from happening. But seeing the protests in WI and the NOBAMA going to veto any cuts. I can't see enough being done in time. We will be like Greece or Iceland. I can see the Carter years returning in a vengeance. So I am gearing up for the worst. My husband even is on board after he found out about places in Amsterdam not accepting dollars. ...

  2. A week on the ranch (February 14 -February 20, 2011)

    by , 02-21-2011 at 10:19 AM
    It has been a busy week on the ranch! A winter storm blew in and has been keeping things interesting: rain one day, snow the next. I have burned through a lot of wood to try to keep the house warm! I have also had a chance to practice cooking on the wood stove, and have been having fun experimenting with different foods.

    Despite my efforts, my electricity usage is up this week. Unfortunately, the lower the mercury drops in the thermometer, the higher my electric bill goes! I have ...

  3. Road Map for the Day - February 21, 2011

    by , 02-21-2011 at 09:58 AM
    I have made good progress on the house over the weekend, so I may use today (the last day of a three-day holiday) to keep going on that. So, breakfast to all, then back to house-cleaning!! If I get my "to do" list done in time, I get to claim the rest of the day as unscheduled "me" time.

  5. Road Map for the Day - February 20, 2011

    by , 02-20-2011 at 09:59 AM
    I am trying to use this long weekend to get the house ship-shape, before I head back to work on Tuesday.

    First, make up some more hummingbird food, because I'm dangerously low, and those hummers are aggressive! Then, while that is cooling, breakfast to everyone else. After that, I need to start tackling today's "to do" chores, including cleaning the bathroom and finishing up the kitchen. Put the laundry away, give the whole floor a good sweep, and then I will at least feel ...
