News From the Farmhouse
My February Valentine......
With temperatures in the 25-30 below zero range that made it painful to breathe, this little girl was found shivering in our snow covered driveway near the entrance to the barn. We'd seen her come and go since before Christmas, obviously someone had dumped her and now the food I put out each night was frozen within minutes. Then one morning she approached me, let me pet her, and happily followed me into the workshop where she stayed for several days by the warm furnace. Her male companion was a big black kitty, one we could not get to come to us, so he still comes and goes in the barn and every night food is put out for him. This little girl however, found a good home just a few days ago. With the help of a friend who posted her photos on Facebook and several town community sites, she was able to start a new and better life in a good loving home. The fact that it's highly likely she's pregnant was of little concern to the new owners who are sure the kittens will also get good homes. Stories of stray cats seldom end so happily and while I wished I could keep her I knew it was best to find her another home.
I think there's a special place in hell for people who abandoned animals. Clearly, this little one was someone's pet. She was affectionate and very sweet natured. She was not a feral cat. And we knew she was eternally grateful to have a warm place to stay until a good home was found. A big THANKS to my friend Beth and to the wonderful family that gave her a home!
Our own spoiled kitties likely would not have taken so well to a newcomer, especially baby Chloe. Here she has her bath time, courtesy of Look-A-Like. It's enough to make you wanna nap!
I continue to care for the two cats across the road, the old kitty (now 20) that belonged to my elderly neighbor, and now "Geo" a young orange and white Kitty her grandson brought home recently. Poor Buster was hit on our road before Labor Day weekend. Despite my warnings not to let him out during that busy week, he was let out. I'm afraid "Geo" will suffer the same fate as soon as Spring is here and he gets out too. I've lost track of how many I've picked up off the road in the past 39 years. This is just no place to let your pets out, which is why ours stay safely indoors.
Phil's been slowly (very slowly) gaining back a few pounds following a year of medical treatments and surgeries for pancreatic cancer. With the help of natural supplements, herbs, enzymes and freshly frozen bovine colostrum from a local farm, he's put back a few pounds in recent weeks and has more energy. We couldn't afford the prescription enzymes ($3,000 WITH his insurance!) but found others that seem to be helping considerably. Knowing something about natural medicine, herbal remedies and vitamin therapy goes a long way in restoring health and combating the ill effects of chemotherapy. We go back to Boston in April for another SCAN. Meanwhile, he still has kidney stones to deal with..... so more trips to the doctor are coming soon.
WE LOVE TALK RADIO and think everyone should shut off the boob tube and listen to some great conservative radio hosts. Sadly there are those who have the tv on all day where "fake news" and the most stupid excuse for comedy is shown hour after hour. NO wonder the country is a mess...we have a population of mind numbed robots absorbing all that mindless dribble like a dry sponge. TURN IT OFF!! Get that radio on, tune it in to one of the better conservative talk show hosts! You'll finally get a decent education and enjoy some REAL humor at the same time.
Here are a few of our favorites: EXCELLENT radio talk show hosts we listen to regularly include Jeff Kuhner (the Kuhner report), Mike Siegel, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage (the Savage Nation), Alex Jones (he's often right though many consider him a "conspiracy theorist") Rush Limbaugh, Howie Carr, Mark Levin, sometimes there's a good radio host on Philly's 1210 am radio, here on the seacoast we get the Mike Gallagher show...1270 am 10 am We also sometimes tune in to shortwave radio at night.... Very good!
Frankly...there is NO conspiracy theories...the Left Wing loonies are not trying to hide a thing anymore....it's all pure, unadulterated "in your face" GLOBALISM, ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT, BIG BROTHER LUCIFERIAN GUN GRABBING AGENDAS and people are finally wising up to the FAR LEFT'S attempted take over of our great country. Remember, the first thing the left will do to take over a people is to DISARM THEM!
We are not going to take it anymore!
If you like talk about UFO's, Yetti's, "other worldy" experiences...check out late night radio to go sleep by: Ground Zero with host Clyde Lewis. And for a lark.....repeat shows of ART BELL are very interesting too
If you want to learn the truth and hear REAL NEWS.....shut off the tv and listen to conservative talk radio!
GOD BLESS AMERICA!
