Our backyard chicken catch and eat mice


You just gotta remember that chickens are just the living descendants of the T-Rex.  Anything smaller than them and not quicker than them is fair game to be eaten by them.

To hear or not to hear - what was the question ?

#Beltone :: pretty cool how I can turn them off from my phone or adjust between 'reataurant' 'normal' and 'boost' modes that have been tailored for my particular pair of ears. I am deaf in the three highest tones. Midrange is degraded and bass is fine but the high end tones really give distinction and with out them- it's more challenging to hear every day. Hearing aids.


What would life be like without aids for hearing or eyes? What would life be like without such ease of information access?  The device (iPhone) I am typing this on from a coffee shop while I watch a deluge of rain outside, has more storage and computing power than my first desktop computer. That was the #maccolorclasic with a 9 inch 256 color tube display.

It is cool that I can mute the background noise but what if I had no glasses or hearing aids.

What if I had no access to eBooks white papers and Wiki?

In the same note - Colorado does not get much rain and when it does, like now, more than half the people walking about downtown right now in the very steady rain; have no coats or rain coats or hats.

If shit really stopped working and folks had to rely on wits I do think the attrition would be vast.

Looking for King Arthur

Sometimes, sitting in a downtown city high rise office, don't you just get an urge?

To go into the mists in search of King Arthor

RIP Sally cat

Once they where kittens 
Then the sisters became
Cats
Over time they in thirteen years 
Never left the house 
Oh a vet visit here or there
Now 
The one by my hand 
Sleeps forever more 
Under the maple tree
And
The circle of life 
Rolls on

History ties us

My wife and I both are from this region of Vermont and that pleases us both. One of Melissa's ancestors escaped from Indian capture during revolutionary war times by ice skating down lake Champlain. One of my ancestors built this chapel in Middlebury.

Our daughters first real visit about the state barely covered the list of places for her second  trip to where our history is.

poem from a porch watching a storm roll over

rain on a lake

in vermont

there is a sound, symphonic

rising enveloping random jazz

there is a smell, wafting rich life

soil leaves acrid thunder

there is a feeling, home

green mountains and the place where

lives entwine deeper than memory

in vermont

rain on a lake
