july 3 2020
A MOUSE? SINGULAR?  LETS THINK ABOUT THIS....REPRODUCTION BEING WHAT IT IS, THERE MUST BE AT LEAST 2... I AM SURE MICE BELIEVE I     POLYGAMY RELATIONSHIPS .... II THINK WE HAVE A FAMILY LIVING INTHE KITCHEN AREA.. AQND NOW ONE  IN THE OVERFLOW ROOM... WITH A HUSBAND WHO COMMUTES.  

 A FEW WEEKS AGO   I STARTED ON THIS TOPIC ABOUT THE TIPPING POINT... ILLUSTRATED BY... IF YOU ARE INHOME DEPOT AND YOU PULL OUT A FEW LINKS OF CHAIN FROM THEIR DISPLAY,  THERE IS A POINT AT WHICH THE WEIGHT OF THE HANGING CHAIN WILL EMPTY THE ENTIRE BIN ONTO T HE FLOOR.  TEH STRAW THAT BROKE THE CAMELS BACK, CONCEPT... WITH MICE... IN AUSTRALIA THEY  WERE INUNDATED WITH MILLIONS OF MICE... ANKLE DEEP IN FARMERS FEED LOTS,... SOMEONE DETERMINED THAT 350 MICE PER ACRE WAS ENOUGH TO START THE OVERPOPULATION. 
WE HAVE MORE THAN  A FEW... AND I THINK I BETTER GET AHEAD ON THIS 350 PER ACRE NOW..

SEVERAL PEOPLE DID SEND ME A BUNCH OF THOSE VICTOR MOUSE  SNAP TRAPS,, WHICGH AFTER MAQILCALL WERE PUT CAREFULLY AWAY BUT LIKE ARCHIE WITH THE TOILET PAPER PROBLEM OF "EDITH, I AM NOT IN THE KITCHEN", I NEED TOFIND OUT WHERE THEY HQAVE BEEN STORED AND GET THEM TO USE..  THEY ARE, TO ME, TEH MOST HUMANE.. SNAP... DEAD .
 I LIVE IN FEAR OF SOMEONE DECIDENG THE  MOUSE/ RAT POIZON IS NEATER AND QUICKER  WITHOUT MY KNOWLEDGE PUTS OUT POIZON.. BECAUSE A DEAD MOUSE/RAT IS A CHEW TOY TO A DOG. THUS PUTTING THE POIZON IN THE DOG.
SO WE SNAP.. THE #1  PROBLEM WITH SNAPS IS THAT TTHEY MUST BE PUT WHERE THE DOGSCANNOT SNIFFOUT THE TRAP LOADED WITH A BIT OF CHEESE SO THEY MUST BE TUCKED AWAY SOMEWHERE WHICH GIVES US #2 PROBLEM   STAFF AND VOLUNTEERS MUST NOT STICK THERI HANDS IN TEH CORNER LOOKING FOR  COFFEE.  IT IS POSSIBLE TH USE RED TAPED ARROWS TO ALERT PEOPLE TO THE "SET TRAP"   BUT YOU THEN HAVE PROBLEM #3  HOW CAN YOU BE SURE EVERY VOLUNTEER KNOIWS  THAT THOSE RED ARROWS MEAN DO NOT... WHEN THEY COULD THINK "TRY HERE"

SO I HAVE AVOIDED THE TOPIC...  WE HAVE HEALTHY CONDITIONS FOR MICE --- HERE'S ONE I DID NOT KNOW...  
 I GOT THSOE LOVELY RED ( EXPENSIVE)  CHERRIES FROM HALE  AND ATE A FEW AT MY DESK .. CAREFULLY PUTTIN G THE STEMAND PITS IN A PILE NEXT TO ME BECAUSE I L.ACKED A SCRAP BASKET.    THE NEXT MORNING ALL THE PITS WERE GONE..   THAT IS A HUGE MOUITHFUL FOR A TINY MOUSE.... WHICH I THINK THESE ARE.... I DON'T THINK THEY ARE BABY RATS...  THESE ARE MICE.. THERE  ARE SEVERAL RUNS THAT I WATCH ----  JUST BEFORE MAILCALL  ONE RUNS FROM CLOSET TO WASHING MACHINE,, AND IN THE MORNING  ONE COMES FROM LIVING ROOM  YUPPY PUPPY   TO CLOSET....    WISHFULLY THINKING IT WAS ALL THE SAME MOUSE,  THANKS TO OUR ALERT CAMERA CREW THEY HAVE PHOTO'D SEVERAL INB TEH SMAE PICTURE... SO  NOW... I HAVE ONE OR TWO  HATCHED LITTERS????  AND AM I ON   MY WAY TO 350 PER ACRE???   ALONG WITH POLIGIMY  I DON'T THINK MARRYING A SECOND COUSIN IS A PROBLEM EITEHR

SO I AM IN TROUBLE.   my solutionis to set up wiore cages withset traps  that the mice can easilyget into... besides it willgive camera  people   somethignto watch.

I WAS SOOOOO PLEASED WITH MY  chickne coop's 19' 3" DIagionals being equal  ( to which i added teh diagionals of teh 4 x 4 posts inthe dorner which in fact are 3 1/2 x3 1/2   with a diagional of less than 5 --- twice---  so teh whole  diagional is darn close to 20 feet ) .. i wantted tospend some time solidifying  thebottoms of thsoe posts,  but this 350 mice per acre may take over.

teh july 4th weekend is notoriously weak on chickenbrick sales.. 
so please would anyone who can give us a boost on  clicking the chicken.  
 thanks to those who bought bricks in SANTA FRANK's  name. 
 he will be sorely missed.

JULY 2 2020.
PERSPECTIVE..  THIS IS 100% NOT A POLITICAL STATEMENT  BECASUE AS A TEENAGE COLLEGE KID, I WOULD HAVE BEEN FIRST IN LINE WITH ROPES TO TOPPLE ANY BIG OBJECT OVER JUST FOR THE THRILL OF CONTROLING A LARGE OBJECT,------ NOW THAT I AM OLDER, I WOULD BE PROVIDING THE ROPE AND DRAGGING WHATEVER OFF TO SELL THE METAL TO THE NEAREST SCRAP DEALER REGARDLESS OF WHAT .. OR WHO.. THE METAL OBJECT PORTRAYS..

NOW TEH PERSPECTIVE... THESE DEMONSTRATERS ARE OBJECTING TO PEOPLE WHO  OBJECTED,--- GOT INTO A FIGHT, ---AND LOST... NOW IF THEY ARE DEFENDING THE RIGHT TO DEMONSTARATE AND QUESTION, THEY ARE  DEMOLISHING THE STATUES OF PEOPLE WHO WERE IN EXACTLY THE  POSITION IN WHICH THEY FIND THEMSLEVES... YET HAVE NOT YET LOST????

I SEE WHERE  THAT UTOPIA SITUATION -- NO POLICE--  WAS SET UP ? OREGON?   LOVELY IDEA, BUT THERE WAS NO ONE TO ORDER TEH NECESSITIES OF LIFE ... LIKE PORTAPOTTIES....AND WHEN THE  PEOPLE WITH THE LOFTY IDEAS HAD TO GO HOME AND GET SOME SLEEP, THE MIXED NUTTS TOOK OVER AND LEFT THERI MARK... NO T ONLY  ON WALLS  AND STORM DRAINS  BUT WHERE POO PICKERS WERE CRITICALLY IN SHORT SUPPLY.

I HAVE SEEN THIS UTOPIA SITUATION---  POLICE  WITHOUT GUNS --- MAY BE ONE  FOR EVERY FOUR SMALL TOWNS     BECAUSE PEOPLE HAD AN INSTICT  TO  CIVIL BEHAVIOR. 
THE CIVIL BEHAVIOR WAS ====IN 1957====A REMARKABLE CHANGE FROM COLBY COLLEGE IN MAINE.  I HAD A VERY SHARP LEARNING CURVE DELIVERED BY MY 2  british ROOMATEES GWEN AND ELIZABETH WITH A " WE JUST DON'T DO THAT HERE"  -  AMERICANS HAD A BAD REPUTATION AS TRAVELERS IN BRITAIN.. AND AS I PUT THOUSANDS OF MILES ON A BICYCLE PEDALING AROUND... I LEARNED  A CIVIL BEHAVIOR  IN THE HILLS OF SCOTLAND THAT WAS TOTALLY NEW TO ME.  TOTAL STRAINGERS WERE FRIENDLY.  I WAS JUST ANOTHER HUMAN PASSING BY IN THE STREAM OF HUMANITY..  
THERE IS A BOOK.....  WORTH A READ.... A SYSTEM WHERE   INDIVIDUAL  MONITORING IS   IMMEDIATE  AND ACCURATE .....     TEH BOOKS  WRITTEN  BY A SCHOOLTEACHER...  WITH HUMOR  "THE HILLS IS LONELY"  WHERE THE POSTAL HOURS ARE DICTATED BY THE TIDE CHART... OR WHEN THE COWS  NEED MILKING.  IT  COULD BE DIFFERENT  THERE TODAY,, I AM SURE THE POPULATION DENSITY HAS CHANGED -----  NOW THE STREAM  IS  FULL OF INDUSTRIAL PESTICIDES AND  HAS  BECOME A SWAMP OF TOO MUCH, TOO MANY., .. 
----
SOME CONGRES IS DEBATING WHETHER TO SPEND MONEY ON CHANGING THE STREET SIGNS  OR BUILD  NEW CLASSROOMS   ????  I DO WATCH A VARIETY OF TV SHOWS,,,, ALL POINT OUT THAT THE DENSITY OF POPULATION IS INVERSELY PROPORTIONAL TO THE DENSITY OF SKULLS.

THIS DENSITY OF POPULAGTION IS... I THINK,,,BEING ILLUSTRATD BY THE LACK OF LUMBERR AT THE LUMBER STORE...  AND TEH FACTG THAT SMALL COZY HOMES WITH JUST A FEW ACRES ARE GOING FOR PRICES FAR ABOVE LIST PRICE. 

 NOW THAT I THINK ABOUT IT... I THINK I WILL CHECK TO SEE WHAT TEH REAL ESTATE MARKET FOR SMALL HOMES IS IN CANADA..  2 YEARS AGO MY DOCTOR TOLD ME HE AND HIS WIFE HAD BOUGHT JUST THAT...  IN CANADA.  I WONDERED ABOUT THAT DECISION THEN.

 I REALLY  ADMIRE THAT NOW THat personal space is at a premium. .
I am happy to share  SOME spACE  OF crazy acres with volunteers who can help. WITH  GRAss cutting .. dogs ... floweers,,, water... POO ....laundry.. rocks... or blocks.

i think the expression is " time for me to go play with my own mental blocks."

july 1 2020
pushed wrong button again !!
CARL REINER's death at 98 is the passing of an era..  
he was super at identifying a thought and making anything  laughable-- you  forget people who make you cry, but you never forget the people who made you laugh. the black white issue on teh dick van dyke show where she was convinced her baby had been swapped with another couple's kid  in the nursaery because they had the same last name...she   invites them to dinner and opens the door  .. question resolved ... the stuff you couldn't  dream,up... he did ! 
 comedy  ... love it. 
i remember  norman lear', the first time  the sound of the flushing of a toilet  became sa signature issue on" all in hte family"  ..who did not laugh at
 "edith there is no toilet paper  up here" 
" there is some in th e kitchen"
  "edith... i am not in the kitchen" 

there is darn little comedy on air now.  thank heavens for the running of a dr pol  sequence...  watching him with one arm up the back end of one cow after another beats 99% of whagt else is on "the air." ... or the internet.... 
----
yesterday i dished out a bag of food to the family that is enjoying cosmo... cosmo is the dog we washed basically on his  singing ... wierd vocalizations... vety strange and very entertaininbg...  so far it is experimental overnight  but i hole he stays there... it is a perfect place for him.  and i wantg him to stay on  the purinaq which has served us so well.. like 30 years of just purina..  even the weight  management is purina ( for chaos and bentley) 

today's project is to gather the "equipment" and food necessary for  teh service dog to be given to a woman in beverly.. i think july5th? linda  help me?? ???? seeing as she is very worried about the virus, i plan to experiment with having her bond with the dog the first 24 hours in her own home.   should work - altho any time i have to break a tested routine, i get nervous...  well... a little... sholud work.    thenon  ? teh 5th,  i will go with the dog and 2 of the trainers who have been working with the dog... all in separate cars-- and we will somehow get her going from 10 feet away...   
--- 
denis will be back today ( off  mon tues) ao the goal therte is to get up .... maybe 4  corner posts???? 
---
bryan was here to give teh yearly shots to the donkeys..  tetnus and equine enchepxxxxxi give up xxx     and while he was here i asked if he knew of anyone wanting to get rid of guinnea  hens... often people find them annoying with their chatter...  i happent o lke them  we still have 4  they are strange running about with great importance .. i tried to buy some at several of the hatcheries... but many are sold out...   these birds do eat ticks...    but i can not believethey a=can eat enough ticks on 12 acres to make a difference-- so i  buy  worms....bags of dried worms.  everyonbe has to make a living somehow... but raising worms?????   yup.  
i don't want to get into baby birds untili am sure i can have a corner of the new shathouse to propelry care for them/... make that eaqsily care for them.
the lumber is in teh dump trailer.
---
and jack called  (lauras father  super carpenter comforttable working with my scratched out plans)  h promised he would be here  the 4th???? 
 to get a propper door to the "cellar "  where therre will be a lanumdy wash room.....as soonb as soimeone puts uo a couoe walls too.

he said he is super busy... prob related to the lumber company beinbg out of some saizes of lumber.
hanging in there...

JUNE 30 2020

to mask or not to mask., that is th question.  i hate to bring up a nasty topic, like mathematics, but the size of the sample has to be taken into consideration..  i "have an uncle  Louis who thinks it is ridicoulous for him to wear a mask" ---- he is totally right when he is sitting on his horse on the prarie..... but the law was passed by the folk who  live in kansas city... where the density of populatioin is  a bit more than where the next horse and rider are 3 miles away.... my decision is colored by #1... new york did not have to hire trucks with freezers just to store ice cream... and #2    in any group on tv  teh people withhe advanced degrees... like "MD" wear masks.   do i have to know more than those two?  

so i have decreed   at crazy acres... being inside buildings is very limited and  only oin personal invatation... outside... masks will be worn if 6 feet  distanceis not maintained..   teh one exception is the rest room in the laundry building....   when you gotta go ,, go there.  but reqlize it is not what you would usually call  private,  certainly we welcome our volunteers to enjoy the outdoors here... we havenever had such beautiful gardens thans to janet and grace.... and a few other weed pullers.  it is appalling what BRAINS, PHYSICAL ENERGY  AND AN UNLIMITED SUPPKY OF DONKLEY POO CAN CREAT E.
---
speaking of delightful exercises.... a guy... david... was in the driveway yesterday,,10 feet away and still masked...  and we got going... started on teh statistics of masks AND HOW EASY IT IS TO BELIEVE  EVERY ANGLE IF YOU TOTALLY IGNORE THE OPPOSING VIEW.. WHICH GOT TOO POLITICAL FOR COMFORT AND QUICKLY EVOLED TO THE  CURRENT TEAM OF BROTHERS VERY LIKE THE SMOTHERS BROTHERS  WITH THEIR "MOM LIKED YOU BETTER" -- THEY HAVE A WONDERFUL  COMIC RELATIONSHIP     "  YOU ONLY WORK ONE HOUR A DAY"   " I AM HERE BECAUSE MOM SAID I HAD TO BE" .. NONE OTHER THAN THE CUOMO BROTHERS..   WHEN HE GOV. IS ON THE CHRIS CUOMO SHOW THERE IS ALWAYS SOME VERYI8 NTTERESTING  SIDE COMMENTS..  AND I DO THINK THE GOV OF NY IS OPERATING ON STATISTICS APPLICABLE TO ANYOINE NOT ON HA HORSE IN THE PRAIRIE.
------=
6am phone call and i thought "OH NO, THE POLICE"    BUT IT WAS A CAMERA PERSON WHO WAS CALLING BECAUSE THE MOMMY DONK WAS "CAST" ...
FYI FOR INFORMATION I AM SURE YOU ALL NEED TO KNOW   TECHNICALLY BEING "CAST" THEY USUALLY ROLL OVER WITH NOT ENOUGH ROOM AND THEIR LEGS ARE UP AGAINST THE WALL  ... AT WHICH POINT THEY PUSH THEIR HEADSW BACK FROM THE WALL AND ARE WEDGED...  MANY TIME WITH A BIG HORSE IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO ROLL THEM BACK WITH THIER HEAD BACK LIKE THAT  BUT YOU NEED TO GET A ROPE AROUND A LEG AND ROLL THEM BACK   ... THE ENTIRE HORSE WEIGHS 1000 POUNDS AND LET ME TELL YOU  THOSE LEGS FLINGING AROUND WEIGH MUCH MORE THAN ANY HUMAN  -- AND IT IS A HORSE... I,E, UNREASONABLE.. WITH A DONKEY  THEY ARE MORE REASONABLE TO DEAL WITH. BUT THE GEOMETRY IS STILL THE SAME...
AT ANY RATE SHE GOT HER HEAD AGAINST THE WALL AND PUSHED ENOUGH TO GET HERSELF UP JUST AS COLBY GOT THERE.
----
NOW  PERSONALLY....   ABOUT BEING UP AGAINST THE WALL.... MENTALLY...   ONE OF THE HARDEST THINGS  I HAVE TO DO FOR SDP. IS TO JUST NOT SAY A WORD.   LAST NIGHT  AT MAIL CALL, I GOT A LETTER CRITICIZING   A DECISION I MADE --- SINGLE SPACED ---FULL PAGE OF SPECIFIC DETAILS WHICH THE WRITER THOUGHT I HAD BEEN INCORRECT.    I CAN SEE WHY  THIS PERSON THOUGHT THAT WAY...... THE PROBLEM IS  THE WRITER  DID NOT KNOW ALLTHE DETAILS.. AND THERE IS NO WAY I CAN RESPOND. 
LONG AGO AT THE START OF ALL THESE CAMERAS I WOYLD HAVE RESPONDED AND VERY WILLINGLIY ARGUED IT OUT...AND I GOT CRITIZED FOR AIRING "DIRTY LINEN " IN PUBLIC   .. I CAN SEE THAT POINT...  A REALLY GOOD ARGUEMENT IS  HAD FACE GTO FACE NO HOLDS BARRED.....  SO FOR THE PAST 5 YEARS ON SO MANY TOPICS I HAVE BITTEN MY TONGUE  AND LET THINGS ROLL OFF MY BACK...  AND I STILL THINK THERE IS NO WAY I SHOULD DISCLOSE  MANY OF THE REASONS FOR ANY DECISION...  FRANKLY , I DO NOT HAve timeto explain everything.  and now  that we have grown to  a size where an accountant is a permanent  fixture  i know... i can not argue with  his decisions... he went to school and learned stuff i don't want to know... so whatever he says... we do...   now that  same thing applies  to  fighting with   archetecs and the zoning bioard, town manager  , state of mass, or the irs..
there are rules many of which i would like to debate...  but  i have learned... some arguemets are  a waste of time.... unless you have too much time on your hands in which  case a good arguement is a delightful exercise.  ANGELS ON THE HEAD OF A PIN... GOTTA  LOVE IT !!

JUNE 29 2020
 WE ARE headed for rough seas....   i am told....facebook is apparently full of joyous trips  by megan and devin  to bars in nashville ..minus masks..i don't know if they realize that this state has a 14 day self quarantine  for travel INTO THE STATE.... let alone bar hopping in tenna.  and at 82 i  have to go along with the state. -----mind you, i would love to hop bars also.... but... not right now.  as for people who don't believe in masks etc.... how do they explain  why would new york  city hire so many freezer trucks... it was not to store ben and jerry ice cream ! 

i can't say "not a problem"  BUT I WILL SAY  WE HAVE JUST ONE MORE  CHALLANGE ..... we do have quite a collectionof very competent people... starting with laura who you have heaRD ME SAY COULD RUN GENERAL MOTORS WITH HER ORGANIZATIONAL   SKILLS... AND THEN JUDY WHO IS SO IMPOSSIBLY PLEASENT, SHE CAN  TALK TO THE MOST UNREASONABLE PEOPLE VERY CHEERFULLY !! ADD LINDA WHO HAS A MIND THAT REMEMBERS THINGS. LIKE WHERE SHE HAS FILED AN INCREDABLE  AMMOUNT OF PAPER CRAP. PLUS A RAFT OF STAFF AND VOLUNTEERS   
I WILL  GET SHIRTS MADE WITH  "I'M POSSIBLE"  FOR ALL THE FOLK WHO HELP WADE THRU THIS COV MESS.
NOW WE CAN SPEND THE MORNING ARGUING ABOUT WHAT COLOR FOR THE SHIRTS....    THAT'S REALITY !-
---
COSMO WENT FOR AN OVERNIGHT---   BEAUTIFUL DOG..... JUST NOT QUITE OF THE MENTAL CAPACITY OF SERVICE DOG.    LARGE DOG. FRIENDLY DOG... ..  WE GOT HIM ALL PACKED UP WITH OVERNIGHT SUPPLIES AND AFTER  HE HAD E A SMALL PROBLEM JUMPING IN THE CAR... ITDID HAVE A TAILGATE, WHICH STUMPED HIM FOR A FEW MINUTES... THEY GOT  TO  THIER HOUSE, AND HE HAD A PROBLEM BETTING OUT... SAME TAILGATE...  BUT HE FINALLY DID..  ONE HOPES HE WILLN OW GET BACK IN TODAY,, BUT.......
THE ONLY QUESTION THE FAMILY HAD WAS   IS HE AFRAID OF THUNDER?   THEY APPARENTLY HAD A DOG ONCE WHOI WAS A THUNDER DOG.... I SAID I DIDN'T THINK SO , BUT  I HAD NOTHIGN TO GO ON BECAUSE HE WOULD HAVE BEEN IN THE KENNEL AND I  POSSIBLY WOLD NOT HAVE KNOWN.
THI S AREA IS DRY.. WE HAVE NOT HAD EVEN A SPRINKLE OF QUIET RAIN IN A MONTH ..JUST AFTER TEHY CALLED TO SAY HE HAD JUMPED OUT OF THE CAR, TEHRE WAS AN UNEXPECTED CLAP OF LOUD THUNDER-- WHICH LASTED FOR ?? AN HOUR???  WE NEED THE RAIN... I WAS PLEASED.... BUT WHY THEN??????
I HOPE COSMO WAS OBLIVIOUS TOTHE NOISE...  BUT I ALSO HOPE THEY GOT HIM DOWN FROM THEIR CHANDELIER IF HE WAS NOT...  A VERY FRIGHTENED 175 POUND ANIMAL IS  LIKE A  DRUNKEN 747 AIRPLANE.
  ---
 FYI... YOUR INSTRUCTIONAL FACT FOR THE DAY..
I APPLIED THE DRUNKENB 747 TO TEH PEACOCKS WE USED TO OWN..   WHO FLEW ALL AROUND THE PROPERTY BEOFR THERE WAS A DEVELOPEMENT NEXT DOOR. . IF YOU GO TO PICK UP A FRIGHTENED PEACOCK AND YOU APROXIMATE YOUR GRAB TO THE MIDDLE, ALL THOSE FEATHERS COME OUT IN YOUR HAND, AND YOU LOOK VERY STUPID WITH A HANDFULL OF FEATHERS WHILE THIE TINY CHICKNE SIZE BIRD RUNS OFF.  I SUPPOSE  IT IS A DEFENSE BUT IT  IS ALSO A BIG SHOCK TO ME AND/OR ANY ATTACKKIING WOLF..
 THEY LOOSE THOSE BEAUTIFUL FEATHERS YEARLY.. AND I USED TO COLLECT THEM AND AS WE SAT AROUND IN BOSTON WITH THE DONKEYS, I WOULD CHARGE $1 FOR THEM.... UNTIL.... SOME ANINMAL RIGHTS PEOPLE MADE AN AWFUL SCEENE ABOUT  ME PULLING FEAGTHERS OUR OF PEACOCKS TO SELL....  THOSE FEATHERS ARE NOT FRAGILE... I WOUOLD PICK THEM OUT OF THE MUD AND HOLD THEM BY THE STEM  IN THE SHOWER.. ONE DROP OF SHAMPOO ...., RINSE AND LET DRY FEATEHR DOWN== AND THEY LAST FOR YEARS  GATHERING DUST  IN A WINE BOTTLE INTHE CORNER OF YOUR ROOM. .

RE:   YEARY LOSS OF BODY PARTS.... ANTLERS... REINDEER LOOSE THEM YEARLY.. THE MALES  MOST LIKELY LOOSE THEM IN NOVEMBER.. TEH FEMALES IN JANUARY.. WHICH MAKE ALLTHOSE SANTA'S REINDEER FLYING THRU THE NIGHT SKYS ON CHRISTMAN=S EVE... FEMALES..  THE REST OF THAT YARN GOES  ABOUT THAT IS WHY THEY DON'T GET LOST?????

JUNE 28 2020
YOU SCRATCH MY BACK AND I'LL SCRATCH YOURS---our new CP"s may not know..  TO watCh teh donkey's  they nibble at each other's backs  and there is a converaasation about  wherer it itches as they wiggle ther noses and relocate  --
    we have added a new kid to OUR ranks... she  is fascinated with animals-- and is learning to "read" them by scratching the withers of the donks..  both she and her father  were thnrilled to "read" the conversation of the donks, about where it itches...   animals do talk... if we are too HARD HEADED  to be able to read them, who's fault is that?   we as a society spend millions on trying to figure out the squeaky noises a whale makes... and most of the time i hear  the "scientists"  using our frame of reference for trying to understand. WHALES    ... WE NEED MORE PRACTICE  AT A YOUNGER AGE TO  WIDEN OUR HORIZONS..... SAVE SOME MONEY  ON BOATS..... WHY NOT ... PRACTICE ON  SQUIRRELS-- OR DONKEYS.....

  I CAN GIVE YOU ONE....A WHILE AGO... DONKEYS IN BOSTON... IN A LOOSE SITUATION WHERE PEOPLE COULD MINGLE .. A BOY  WAS PATTING THE PART OF THE DONK MOST ACCESSABLE - TEH BACK.. AND HE STOPPED.... THE DONKEY TOOK ONE SLOW CAREFUL STEPO TOWARD HIM CLEARLY SAYING " DON;T STOP"  AND HE WHACKED HER AND SAID  "DANM DONKEY TRIED TOI KNOCK ME OVER"   BY APPLYING HIS FRAME OF REFERENCE HE TOTALLY MISSED TEH CONVERSATION.
  SO HERE WE HAD A DONKEY USED TO BEING SCRATCHED  BEING HIT BY A KID USED TO BEING KNOCKED OVER.

TURN THAT 180 DEGREES AND HERE AT CRAZY ACRES....  WE HAVE  WILD DONKEYS FROM THE SLAUGHTER PENS    WHO ARE ACCUSTOMED TO BEIN G KNOCKED ABOUT  BEING TOUCHED  BY THE LIKES OF TEH DONKEY MASSEUSE WOMAN..  THE FRAME OF REFERENCE HAS BEEN ADJUSTED ON BOTH SIDES...   SHE ONCE THOUGHT DONKEYS WERE STUBBORN  MINDLESS FOOLS AND THE DONKEY ONCE THOUGHT ALL HUMANS WERE MINDLESS AND INCAPABLE OF  SEEING THEIR POINT OVF VIEW. .  
 
THERE IS A TIPPING POOINT IN BOTH CASES WHERE TOO MUCH ROUGH HANDLING CASN LEAD TOI A ROUGH  -- DANGEROUS
DONKEY JUST AS... WELLL..... I AM SURE YOU KNOW WHERE THIS I S HEADED... TO  HUMANS WHO ARE  BOTH  PHYSICALLY DANGEROUS  OR MENTALLY  INCAPABLE OF Reason ..    EVERYBODY KNOWS.. OR THINKS THEY DO.... ALL DONKEYS KICK  AND YOU MUST NOT WALK BEHIND THEM-- WELL THEY CERTAINLY ARE CAPABLE OF KICKING, BUT PERSONALLY I HAVE SEEN MORE PROBLEMS WITH TEH FRONT END... THE TEETH--- GRAB  SOMETHING AND HANG ON.     THEY CAN KILL WOLVES THIS WAY...  THEY KNOW THAT  THEiR ACHILLES TENDON IS THEIR  ACHILLES HEEL .. AND WILL SPIN AND  PROTECT IT. WITH THEIR TEETH. 

IT TAKES A WHILE TO TURN THE DONKS INTO THE PLACID CREATURES THEY NATURALLY ARE.. ? HOW TO  TURN PEOPLE?   I DUNNO...   
----

DOGS LOOK GREAT AND ARE GETTING THIER people time...   WE WILL BE MAKING SOME MORE  CHANGES AS WE GO THRU  ANY COV COMPLICATIONS...  SO FAR NO ONE INVOLVED WITH BEINBG ON THE SD PROPERTY HAS  TESTED POSITIVE AND WE NEED TOKEEP IT THAT WAY.. BOTH LEGALLLY AND  PRACTICALLY.  ANY ONE WITH THE SLIGHTEST  CHANCE OF COV EXPOSURE MUST NOT COME HERE FOR AT LEAST 14 DAYS...PER OUR CURRENT EMPLOYEES AND BOIARD...      SOME STATES HAVE PASSED THAT LAW--- NEW YOURK,NEW JERSEY, CONN  AND APPARENTLY MASS. WELL...  IT IS A SUGGESTION, BUT IF YOU READ ON... WHICH I DON'T OFTEN DO,   TEH  SUGGESTION  CAN HAVE POLICE "TEETH" TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE.....
THIS WIL,L COMPLICATE OUR LIVES, BUT IS NOT AN INSURMOUTNYTABLE PROPLEM...   IF I COULD REMEMBER I AM SURE WE HAVE HAD WORSE...  THAT IS .ONE CASE OF A BAD MEMORY IS A GOOD THING..... JUST GET ON WITH IT...  WE WILL FIGURE IT OUT.

WE HAVE 2 PEOPLE READY TO WORK WITH NEW DOGS- AND TO GET THEM WORKING TOGETHER WITH THE COV RESTRICTIONS IS A BIT OF A CHALLANGE.. BUT WE CAN TRY...  TAKE ONLY ONE PERSON TO A CAR... FOR OPENERS...    WELL WE HAVE 4 CARS THAT RUN RELIABLY-- OH   .... I REMEMBER THE DAYS WHEN I DID NOT HAVE ONE RELIABLE CAR AND SPENT MANY HOURS ROLLING DOWN  HILLS TO JUMP START.  SO WHEN YOU THINK IT IS DIFFICULT NOW    ,,, JUST THINK OF TRYING TO PULL OFF A MATCH WITH 4 CARS THAT HAVE TO BE JUMP STARTED....   COULD  BE WORSE.
YOU CAN NOT WRITE ABOUT THESE COV COMPLICATIONS.. YOU CAN NOT POSSIBLY DREAM UP THIS STUFF... YOU CAN ONLY ADDRESS ONE PROBLEM AT  A TIME.  
---
I HAVE TO MENTION......  BEFORE 15 CP'S EMAIL ME WITH THIS.......
SPEAKING OF STUPID.... AND MY CHICKEN COOP BUILDING PROJECT..  I WAS  REALLY HUNG UP ON THE 3 4  5  TRIANGLE TOI ESTQABLISH TEH CORNER RIGHT ANGLES... AND IT WAS NOT UNTIL 4AM THIS MORNING I FIGURED OUT THAT   16 X 12 ' IS ANOTHER  3 4 5  DEAL WHERE THE DIAGIONAL IS 20'   WELL WHEN DENIS DUG THE HOLES WE WERE   20.5   AND FOR THAT , I CALL THAT WIGGLE ROOM..  THAT IS HAND HELD MEASUIONR TAPE.. WHICH IS NOT ABSOLUTE...  LETS GET ONE POST IN AND THEMN PULL TAPE...

MY SYPHON HOSE  BRAVELY STANDS   TAPED BETEEEN TEH 2 TALL POSTS AND TEHRE IS A 5 INCH DROP OFF TOI DIDDLE WITH.  WE MIGHT GET A POST OR TWO PLANTED TODAY.

BASHING ON.....

june 27 2020
TWO ALERTS FROM THIS MORNINGS EMAILS.. FIRST IS I HAVE NOT TALKED ABOUT DOGS ENOUGH LATELY-- TOO MUCH ABOUT CHICKENS AND SHAT HOUSES  . OUCH.. THAT IS TRUE.. I HAVE DELAGATED TEH TRAINING  AND THEREFORE IT IS NOT IN FRONT OF ME,, IT  GOES ON AROUND ME... AND I DO  HAVE  INPUT ON OCASSION..... LIKE TODAY... I DID APPROVE THE EYE SURGERIES ON TEH 3 SISTERS AND DID SUGGEST WE DO LILO FIRST ... I AM COUNTING ON  EVERYONE TO REMIND ME NOT TO BREED THSE 2 DOGS AGAIN... GABBY ABD WATSON...    ENTROPIAN DOES HAPPEN AND IT IS A GENETIC THING ... OBVIOUSLY ....  WE HAVE HAD ONE OR TWO HERE AND THERE... BUT 3 IN ONE LITTER.????  DON'T NBREED TEHM AGAIN... THEY ARE LOVELY DOGS, BUT WE DO HAVE SO MANY OTHER COMBINATIONS ..    WE HAVE LET SOME GO OUT OF THE "PROGRAM"   LUCKILY NONE WERE FOR  STRUCTURAL PROBLEMS.. JUST  NOT ENOUGH  CONCENTRATION.. NOT HAVEING STRUCTURAL PROBLEMS IS A GOOG=D THEN..NO CONCENTRATION COULD BE  THE EARLKY PUPPY DEVELOOPENENT.. SPOON FEEDING... WAS NOT GIVEN ENOUGH ATTENTION... AND I AM ON THAT ONE.  PAM IS SUPER AT THAT  BUT SHE IS HERE ONLY 3 DAYS A WEEK.. SO I NEED TO  FIGURE THAT ONE OUT BETTER.   sissle is well into demanding her boiled chicken dinners /\... SO I AM HOPEFUL OF PUPPIES THERE..    I DON'T SEE MAY BUT IA AM TOLD....

 THE OTHER IS TEH COMMENTS BY  CP'S IN GENERAL..  TO PUT IT MILDLY....  WE DO ATTRACT A CROWD OF ALL CAPABILITIES.. AND SHOULD BE  more COGNIZANT  OF THAT VARIATION...  SOME PEOPLE DO NOT UNDERSTAND Many of the complications to  having all these animals.. and that  we ( and I)  should  allow for   more of that... that is entirely different than the few who are just  negative anyway.
---
 i did look at LL THE BIRD NETTING CP'S FOUND AND SAM FOUND  ONE WHICH SHOLD BE PERFECT.. I HONESTLY HAVENOT HAD CHANCE TO LOOK OVER ALL TEH NETING BOXES...  ONE COMMENT IS WE NEED THE KIND WE CAN EASILY CLEAN OUT .. AND GET TEH EGGS...
====

I SEE MAYBE ONE PLANE A DAY OVERHEAD  WHICH I AM TOLD IS A FLIGHT FROM EUROPE TO NEW YORK..  " NORMALLY" YOU COULD NOT FIND A SKY WITHOUT THOSE  WHITE TRAILS ALL DAY LONG.  NOW ONE A DAY.? 

THE REST OF MY HEAD IS ON THE TRAVELING  AND PROBLEMS WITH COV..  AND HOW IT MIGHT AFFECT SDP...APPARENTLY NEW YORK AND NEW JERSEY HAVE INCOMING PEOPLE QUARENTINED FOR 14 DAYS... 
THE  EFFECTS ARE INSIDIOUS I LOOKED OVER THE PRICE OF HOUSING IN IPSWICH.. AND EVERY ONE WENT  FOR OVER ASKING PRICE... AS .. I AM TOOLD MANY PEOPLE ARE FLEEING THE CROWDED CITY ENVIRONMENT..  THAT IS MAYBE RELATED TO THE  CRAZY BUSY LUMBER YOARD YESTERDAY.  HE SAID HE HAS NEVER BEEN  SO BUSY...
---
SHOULD I WORRY About cov, or the  broken tree limb way up high over the driveway. 
at least the tree limb, i can do something about.
i believe that heavy  balanced limb is similar to  what is called a widow maker.
---
 then there is the government...... they changed teh rules and  now i have a new bunch to  learn   .. for $87,000,  i will struggle, thanks.


Dear Carlene,

You may be aware that Congress passed the PPP Flexibility Act on June 5. This legislation makes certain material changes to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), including to the terms of loan forgiveness. As we await new guidance from the SBA that reflects these changes, we'll continue to build our online PPP loan forgiveness application and keep you updated with the latest developments.
We want to remind you that loan forgiveness is not automatic. If you plan to seek forgiveness of your PPP loan, you'll need to complete our online application. We are not accepting paper applications. We'll email you once the online application is available, and you'll also be able to find it on our PPP information site.
In the meantime, it's very important that you familiarize yourself with the PPP loan forgiveness process and requirements. We recommend you start working through the SBA PPP Loan Forgiveness Application, including all schedules and worksheets, ahead of your TD forgiveness application. Please review our PPP Loan Forgiveness Overview for additional information.
Thanks for choosing us for your financing needs.
