july 25 2015
the egg drop is working..... tina suggests i explain it again... 
 way back t the beginning  i said if a hen laid an egg during the process of selecting the month's shatupon membership , i would donate an additional  $50.  ..... that never happened... 
so what i have done-- once the  regular board 2100  is sold out--- i will open teh bonus purple egg section -- which will not have as many  bricks  Probably more like  a few hundred  ???-- the award  AND THE THaNK YOU O GIFT FROM ME Personally  for teh origional 2100 will not change...  the bonus section will get the $50 gift from me along with a certificate of membership to the shatupon society of ipswich.
now how will we do this???  take into considertion rules may change as needed.... but what is anticipated... the normal 2100 sell out numbers will be put on the board in the usual fashion  4 to a square..... a complete set  of 2100 in the center of the board wheree the hens usuaqly end up... and a second set of 2100 around the perimiter just in case they wander...  then the purple numbers will be put-- one to a square--  it is anticipated that the egg will drop and break randomly from the shute..splattering the egg..hopefully the yoke will be better defined.. so the number closest to the center of the yolk splatter will recieve teh membership-- and the $50 THANK YOU   gift from me personally.
why a gift from me personally?   because there are so many laws about bingo's and raffles- that i can not understand them- so even tho we do have a raffle permit to cover the quilt raffle etc.. the bricks are a donation   and are not a bingo or raffle-- just a bunch of donations... which is in effect what the brick wall is.....

what has happened so far is.... the shute is working mechanically -- and has been tested with over a doxzen eggs bouncing and dripping all over...the rounder an egg the faster it runs and sometimes flips out.  which is not a problem.. stil the measurement  from the numbers to the splatter of the yolk could be measured....
we have gone to frozen eggs( but the yplk does not break--)we have painted eggs, boiled eggs ( had to research the 3 minute egg with the runny yolk-- the martha stewart lessons))-ithas been very scientific... however it does work... no two eggs land in teh smae spot.
  so i am confident we can distribute the purple numbers in such a fashion tht it will be a fair distribution...
keeping in mind rules may have to be made to accomodate the oddities of this episode..
******
whidh brings up the notice i got from the ?fda about possible contamingation of dog food with salmonella-- a very official notice- not about purina whic we feed..- but it did cause me to wonder -- raw eggs---our dogs know when i am testing tht shute and rush to eat the drippings--
tehre is a mismatch here... what /when does a raw egg become a problem???  i used to love the real cesar salad...  mixed at your table  with the garlic- olive oil-parm cheese -  raw egg- and not much else- FOR YEARS !!!
 that wAs before the noitce on the bottom of menu's about not eating raw eggs. 
MAYBE CHICKENS ARE NOW LAYING CONTAMINATED EGGS TO OBJECT TO THE FACT THAT THEY ARE NOT FREE ROAMING CHICKENS.
I DUNNO.
*******
so many ideas wheich were thought to be gospel truth get proven not only false, but silly. when i was i kid you were not to eat and then  run around because you would get polio. 
 now with the ability to pass eronious info around via teh internet there are soooooo many more people who can be taught to believe crackpot notions.
used to be.. we were at the mercy of madison avenu3e as we were trained to buy certain products... a relatively harmless concept... but now this madison avenue training has invaded every facet of life-   from medical to political.
****
i am watching with interest how the media is handling-- or being trained to handle-- who knows-- the episode of traffic violation-- of not using your blinker.
looking at it totally from the top down  no blinker=you end up dead-- don't tell me i am to excuse the system because she had traces of marajuanna in her blood....i actually heard " isn't it terrible about the girl who committed suicide in her jail cell"  and someone responded "i heard she had pot in her blood."   training---- and these people vote !!!
*****
thank heavens the political season has started---it cost too much money  for the channels to produce archie bunker type entertainment- why should they , when the polititians will pay them money to have similar nonsense on tv.... i did like the smashing of the cell phoine video...
*****
i better quit there

Hi!
 
I wanted to confirm that tomorrow (Saturday, 7/25) is still OK to bring the finished (!) mural panels to SDP. My friend with the pickup (everyone needs a friend with a pickup!) will be delivering and he and Andy will have drills, screws, washers, caulk, flashing and other manly tools. Is 10:30 am still OK?
 
I’m so happy to be bringing these panels to SDP! It’s been such fun painting them! I’ve been taking pictures along the way, and will take more of the “erection” (as my friend-with-the-pickup’s wife named it). Mark said that he would be happy to make a video for the CPers and other supporters. Fun!
 
See you tomorrow, your/farm schedule and weather-permitting,
 
Renee

Hello! sorry it has been a while since my last update... Rogue is doing really well. We had a new baby on july 1, 2015... and Rogue has been super about our new addition but no one can come in the house or near me and the kids without Rogue telling them she is watching! I now will sit by her bed and pet her and reassure her that the person is okay.
i dont have any adventure stories since we have been home with the new baby and not going out much. its been 3 weeks but i think soon i am ready to venture our with 4 kids and rogue. she sure knows i am having a rough time with my feet and walking around. she still loves to lick my cyst from the neuropathy on my feet! her training for balance has really helped me through the pregnancy and the problems with my feet and nerves. she is good for hearing but has been an awesome help when i need a hand because of the pain from my feet.
rogue loves to work. she is great... and i will try to get her to get up off her bed to let me know the baby is crying.. right now she sits up and watches the baby cry. so i need to try to get her to come to me. but she sure does worry about me walking up and down the stairs and more since i am holding the baby... she really loves to help when ever she can and it makes her soooo happy ...  thank you all so much and hope i can come visit soon.
she is a beautiful friend and helper.. thank you so much.. i am very thankful she is in my life!

  1. HI CARLENE. I, TOO, AM ONE THAT PAYS CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE NEWS AND POLITICS. THE WHOLE SANDRA BLAND CASE IS JUST AMAZING! I WISH I COULD SAY SHOCKING, BUT THESE KINDS OF THINGS ARE BEGINNING TO BECOME ALL TOO COMMONPLACE. THE TEXAS STANDARD PRODUCED A "TEN THINGS ABOUT..." ARTICLE THAT SHOULD BE A MUST READ FOR EVERYONE.

    ANYWAY, THANK YOU FOR BEING YOU AND DOING WHAT YOU DO. YOU AND EXPLORE HAVE HELPED COUNTLESS PEOPLE, AND NOT JUST THE ONES THAT RECEIVE YOUR AMAZING DOGS. YOU AND YOUR WHOLE ORGANIZATION ARE A SHINING LIGHT.

    ENJOY YOUR DAY!

    Nancy
