I finally have become motivated to do some more work on the website. This social networking stuff seems to have really gotten some traction. Let's see if it grabs me. I have been spending time on www.facebook.com and getting hooked up with folks from high school in South Africa. That has been really great. Maybe some of them will find this blog? more later.
The girls have decided that since it's been really chilly, they would rather sleep in their laying boxes. This is in awfully bad taste as the eggs sometimes end up with poop on them. Yucko! So they found a nice little spot in the backyard where they now lay their eggs. Nice and clean and in a protected little spot. Wonderful. It is also closer to the house and behind a little screened area. I'll post a pic one of these days. I got 19 eggs the other day. Of course I had been sick for a week so there was no egg collecting.
Jennifer's Hope was founded in the name of Jennifer Crecente, who was murdered in February 2006 by her ex-boyfriend."Our aim is to reduce teen dating violence. And though we know that we must start in our small corner of the world, we hope to affect change at a greater level." Our host, Elizabeth Crecente, is the founder of this organization and will share with us more about the work that is underway to address this critical issue and what we can do to make a difference. This potluck will be at Jennifers home.

From I-35 go to Ben White/71 and head West. Continue all the way until you reach the Brodie/Loop 1 (MOPAC) exit. Go straight through the light at Brodie. There are a few hinky curves and lights there between Brodie and MOPAC but if you watch the signs you'll be fine. Go past the Wal-Mart and turn just before the Target heading South onto MOPAC. From there go past the William Cannon exit to the Davis exit. Exit off MOPAC and continue to the stop sign. Turn left. You will pass under MOPAC heading East.

So the point is, you want health, freshness and convenience. These folks offer weekly or bi-weekly deliveries that you can start, stop, or hold at any time. With the freshness of a Farmer's Market and the selection and price of a grocery store, they save you the hassle of going to several different locations to find your whole grocery list. They also offer seasonal and specialty items that you don't even know where to find.
