Thanks Tim. The internet connection is much better now. You are a technical support genius, and I am technical menace. I am at your mercy forever :) .

back online

take that bell-aliant! Tim hardwired the embassy and I can get wireless from there... so I'm almost back in business (what is this, 12 months of illness, destruction and business setbacks and I'm still hopeful!)

- get Valley Cloth back online
- manage 800 emails clogging inbox
- adjust spam filter to prevent Viagra sales and international money transfer emails from making it to me
- practice isolating vocal cords
- practice F# and B

It's nice to be back in my office aga...

midnight baling/storm proofing

 Tim's a trooper. It was too hot and dry to make bales today, but he's got to get the straw off the field before the hurricane blows it all away! So, it's 1:20 am and he's out baling. I'm like a passenger who feels bad sleeping while the driver does all the work. So I'm surfing while he bales.

Private Canada!

Private Canada's Administrative Headquarters
Private Canada's Administrative Headquarters

Great news... I'm totally rejuvinated about being Canadian! I was on a bit of a low, feeling kind of, well, dissapointed in ourselves as a Country... you know how we think we're progressive and democratic and into equality, but actually we're not? Well, anyway... I've been feeling disengaged from the 'system' and had a chance to pick the brain of a very clever nearly PHD'er and we came up with a solution to Canada.

Ironically, it is a Private Canada. A peaceful revolution. We're going to start...

I need some. Saturday, after I finished combining my wheat, I drove to New Glasgow for Johnston-Fest. Not much sleep. I did awake Sunday morning to Russell kicking me casuse I wouldn't read a  book at 6am. Sunday night, I drove back with the kids so that Ang could have a night alone without the monsters. I also shipped chickens Mon am at 6am, so again, little sleep. Monday night, ship turkeys at 3am, but catchers sin't show till 5, so again, little sleep. Tuesday night, had a few guests over...

Winding Down

We're back from our 2010 family working-vacation... I'm sure the kids will remember it fondly... and eventually we will as well :) 

I'll post pictures when I can.

For now, I have a date with Per. He's teaching me how to free my voice. I'll keep you posted on my progress.

Tim is out spreading fertilizer. Kids are asleep. Lizzy's on the picnic table and I am being patient.
