News from the Farmhouse.....June 2021
It's that crazy busy time of year again. The rototiller doesn't run, the weather's been wet, and the country's going to hell so what can I say? Don't blame us, WE VOTED FOR TRUMP!
Well, things aren't all that bad.....yet. We still have hope for our country and hope that the masses will wake up and smell the coffee before it's too late. In the meantime, Phil and I are happy to announce he's cancer free as of his last tests and his overall health seems to be quite good, probably better than mine. We've formed a new Conservative group that is open to citizens of Belknapp, Carroll, and Strafford counties called the Tri-County Republicans. We're growing in leaps and bounds and will be participating in a number of events this summer.
Our band "Bittersweet" will have an easy summer, performing a few outdoor concerts and that's ok. We don't actively seek work anymore and enjoy the few gigs we do perform much more.
Soap making has slowed up a bit, largely due to the fact that raw materials are getting ridiculously expensive. Unfortunately, that means higher costs to the customers. In an effort to avoid that I'm simply cutting back on the variety of soaps I make and endeavoring to keep the packaging costs down. You will still find them beautifully wrapped, just not with as much paper!
That gives me more time to work in the gardens. This year I am also cutting back on the amount of things I plant and sticking to the things that will store well or can/freeze well. Perhaps you, like me, have noticed the extremely high price of fruit trees and vegetable plants. I wanted to replace one of the peach trees we lost but they want $69 online for a standard tree and no dwarf trees seem to be available. Guess I'll have to place my order super early next winter. I spent a small fortune on seeds and am so late starting them that I'm going to put some in the freezer to keep them for next year. I"m afraid the Biden administration is going to put us on the path to horribly high inflation and probably food shortages too due to the ever increasing cost of fuel. What a dreadful mess Biden and his minions have made of this country in less than 5 months!
I'm still missing Rush Limbaugh on the radio as are millions of folks, but I'm glad they've kept the show going with a rotation of good talk show "guide hosts" and clips from the past of Rush's wisdom. It never goes out of style and it's never outdated because so much of what we learned from Rush over 31 years is still relevant today and his words need to continue to be heard.
Rush is going to be missed for a very long time.
Alton's having a big town-wide yard sale on June 5th and yours truly will be participating this year. Phil's promised to keep music going on the porch with his little record player and I told him he has to bring home a pizza at lunch time while I tend the sale! Hopefully we'll have good weather and sell alot of stuff. Years of collecting have given me plenty of inventory for the sale and I really need some space in the barn. And of course, having a sale of our own means we won't go out and collect anything else!
The kitties are well, we haven't seen any outdoor cats in quite a while and maybe the old fox that comes through our yard on occasion has something to do with that. I hope not. But our dear "Dumpling" boy and his companion Farfanugen (Chloe) are enjoying the warmth today from the old kitchen woodstove as it's chilly, rainy and miserable outside. We couldn't light the living room stove as the chimney appears to be blocked. I cleared out a pile of soot from the trap door but we still got smoked out like kippers when I tried to light a fire. With a bit of luck the weather will warm up and stay that way until we can get the chimney cleaned!
We hope you enjoy perusing the pages of this website as I endeavor to update things a bit. Rainy days are good for that......
DON'T BLAME US....WE VOTED FOR TRUMP!
TRUMP headquarters during the election, and home of the Tri-County Republicans!

Thanks again Vic for the newer computer, it's a real pleasure to use!
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!! Give talk radio a try, you might learn something!
Here are a few of our favorites: EXCELLENT radio talk show hosts we listen to regularly include Jeff Kuhner (the Kuhner report), Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Joe Pags, Rudy Guilliani, Alex Jones (he's often right though many consider him a "conspiracy theorist") , Howie Carr, Mark Levin, Ben Ferguson, and many others.
Frankly...there are NO conspiracy theories...the Left Wing loonies are not trying to hide anything 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.
Better news options include conservative talk radio, Newsmax, and One America News
GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP!
GOD BLESS AMERICA!
