DEC 16 2013
I  FINALLY FIGURED OUT ON REASON I HAVE SO MUCH COMPUTER TROUBLE...  THE ARRAINGEMENT OF MY HEAD AND EARS IS ENTIRELY  DIFFERENT THAN THAN EVERY OTHER PERSON IN THE FREE WORLD-- AT LEAST EVERY TEENAGER..
.YEARS AGO, MY GRANDSON  --WHEN HE WAS 18 MONTHS OLD--- PROGRAMMED AN IPOD FOR MY HUSBAND TO LISTEN TO WITH  BROADWAY-- AND OTHER "DATED-- MUSIC .    RANGING FROM  
  "LETS GO OUT TO THE BALL GAME" TO  JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR  ETC..   THINGS LIKE THAT---  WE HUNG THIS  IPOD ON TOM- AND HE ENJOYED LISTENING TO IT.-- I HAVE SEEN ONE ON NEARLY EVERY KID ON THE STREET....WALKING AROUND  EVEN....

WELL I FOUND IT IN A DRAWER-- AND SINCE I AM UNABLE TO LISTEN TO PANDORA SHOWTUNES- AS ANY NORMAL PERSON-- LIKE MEGAN--  WOULD...-- I DECIDED TO LISTEN TO THIE IPOD..
I HAVE HUNG AND REHUNG THESE FUNNY BEANS ON STRINGS ON/IN MY EARS - THEY STAY ONLY IF I DO NOT MOVE MY HEAD AT ALL.

DUCT TAPE  SOLVES  EVERYTHING  -- I CONSIDERED TAPING MY FACE FORWRD TO THE SCREEN TO PREVENT ME MOVING -- THEN I FOUND I COULD DUCT TAPE THEM  TO MY EARS.  IT IS NOT A PERFECT SOLUTION  BUT IT IS WORKING.

NEW TOY-- WEARING TWO AND HAVING THE SOUND BE LOCATED RIGHT BEHIND MY NOSE.... IS FASCINATING-- TIL ONE FALLS OUT AND THE SPEAKER SOUNDS LIKE IT MOVED 10 FEET TO THE RIGHT.
REMEMBER I COME FROM A N  ERA OF TRYING TO  ACHIEVE  STERIOPHONIC SOUND-- OFTEN  INVOLVING 300 POUNDS OF HARDWARE--- WHICH WAS PERFECT SOUND IF YOU SAT IN TH EBOTTOM OF  THE COAT CLOSET.

SO NOW I CAN WALK AROUND SINGING TO MYSELF LIKE THE REST OF THE WORLD--

SAVED AGAIN BY DUCT TAPE !!
********

BOO IS THE SWEETEST PUP WE HAVE HAD IN A WHILE-- ARIOT IS NOT THE SWEETEST-- THAT IS FOR SURE-- BUT SHE IS THE MOST  INQUISITIVE--- RIGHT NOW SHE IS STUDYING  THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN DUSTPAN AND LITTLE BROOM.

I MUST START CHANNELING THAT MIND  MORE OR WE ARE IN FOR BIG TROUBLE WHEN SHE WEIGHS 140 POUNDS...
**********
SPEAKING OF 140 POUND DOGS... CHAOS WAS SO DELIGHTED TO SEE EARLENE COME   TO KEEP HER COMPANY ---  POST PLOWING....
********

THE TRACTOR WAS  AMONG OTHER THINGS....... WARM....  I REALLY DIDN'T MIND WANDERING AROUND PUSHING GREAT WADS OF SNOW FOR HOURS-- MY SNOWWPLOWING IS NOT ALWAYS AS NEAT AND TIDY AS  A REAL PROFESSIONAL--  MY OBJECT IS TO GET THE DRIVEWAY OPEN  FROM THE STREET  TO THE BARN-- WIT H  A TURN AROUND--    THEN WE ARE AT LEAST READY FOR ANY EMERGENCIES...  FIRETRUCKS AND AMBULANCES --- WHICH  HAS TO BE  A CONSIDERATION IN THIS OUTFIT.  AFTER THAT--  BACKSCRAPING AWAY FROM DOORS WHERE THERE ARE ANIMALS THAT NEED CARE.. LIKE CHICKENS WHO COUD NOT GET OUT AT ALL...  HAVE TO FOOT POUND A PATH FOR THEM-- SOMEBODY ELSE'S JOB..

 FOR THOSE OF YOU  ABOUT TO TAKE UP TRACTOR DRIVING... THIS TRACTOR-- LIKE THE OLD ONE.. WILL "  FLOAT"
  THE BIG PROBLEM IN SNOWPLOWING WITH A BUCKET IS YOU  PUT THE BUCKET  DOWN , AND IF YOU DON'T HIIT IT RIGHT.. YOU PUT IT DOWN TOO FAR WHICH  LIFTS  THE FRONT END OF THE TRCTOR OFF THE GROUND.. MEANING YOU CAN NOT STEER AND PROBABLY HAVE LIFTED 6 FEET OF HOT TOP... REMOVED SOME FENCING  OR MOVED A DOG HOUSE OVER 8 INCHES.  BUT IF YOU SIT STILL-- GET THE BUCKET SET CORRECTLY YOU CAN PUSH TH E KNOB  FULL FRONT AND IT IS SUPPOSED TO STAY  IN THAT POSITION RELATIVE TO THE GROUND..    SOME PEOPLE DO IT AUTOMATICALLY-- OTHERS CURSE ALOT.

WE HAD OVER 1 FOOT BY THE BARN... SO I DID THE WHOLE THING  "FEATHER STYLE----- CURVED IN 5' X 18' PATCHES AS MY  ABILITY  TO PUSH THE STUFF STOPPED AT ABOUT 18'--- THE BUCKET IS 5'   WIDE.
I DID THE  REQUIRED PATH WITH 3 PARKING PLACES   THEN PAUL CAME ALONG AND  CLEANED  UP AFTER ME .
***********

WE HAVE HELP PROBLEMS THIS WEEK-- TRACY IS ILL  ---   MARIA HAS ONE AILING CHILD,--- AND PAULA HAS HEALTH ISSUES TOO AND CAN'T PUT  IN A FULL DAY FRIDAYS-- AND STEPH'S HUSBAND BROKE  SOMETHING AND WAS    IN AN ER IN NYC.. WE CAN MAKE IT TODAY AND TUESDAY-- BY WEDNESDAY WE COULD BE  LOOKING FOR SOME SERIOUS COMMITTMENTS.    WE HAVE SOME GREAT KIDS  BUT UNFORTUNATELY THE ARE REQUIRED TO GO TO SCHOOL-- I CAN THINK OF 3 WHO WOULD LEARN AS MUCH  USEFULL LIFE SKILLS HERE AS  THOSE MASS TESTS ETC...
****
 I REFER TO JANINE'S BOOK OF GROWING UP  IN A FARM ENVIRONMENT..   RESPECT BEING TAUGHT BY A  ROOSTER WHO WAS GOD-AWFUL MEAN, ORNERY AND FAST  ( MY FAVORITE EXPRESSION IN THE WHOLE BOOK. )  
******

AT ANY RATE WE ARE LOOKING FOR SOME SERIOUS HELP/COMMITTMENT.  WE NEED 100% COVERAGE 7 AM TO 7 PM    MUCH OF  THE COVERAGE NOW IS  A PATCHWORK OF  HOURS  TO AVOID COMMUTING TIMES, SCHOOL SCHEDULES--  ETC...  WE HAVE SOME BLANKS TO FILL IN  - THE USUAL-- FEEDING- CLEANING - LAUNDRY AND PUPPY MANAGEMENT.
AN ENTIRE DAY  7 TO 7 IS STRENUOUS  EVEN IF THE  5 TO 7   IS USUALLY PICKING AROUND THE OFFICE /HOUSE ENVIRONMENT... 

THERE ARE 100'S OF CAMERA PEOPLE WHO WILL NOW WISH THEY LIVED NEAR IPSWICH.  

IT IS FUN... BUT IT IS NOT EASY

    they make ear buds that go over the back of your ears so that the earbuds do not fall out of your ears. You can get a pair anywhere....also the ear buds come in diff sizes ....all for under $20.00

    1. @Mrs. J. I have been telling everyone I know for the past year that when I retire in 10 years I am moving to Ipswich. I don't know what I will do if my hubby isn't on board by then...

  4. My dad always said duct tape would fix anything! And magnets. And an occasional rubber band! =o)
