There’s speculation where the curse “may you live in interesting times” comes from.
Some say it’s Chinese, some say English, others Irish.
Does it matter?
Eh, not so much right now.
Perhaps we’ll explore it more another day…
Today I’m just going to say, we are indeed living in interesting times.
Between Schrodinger’s Virus and politics…yeesh, the times they are…interesting.
And I do wish they were far less so.
But, we’re not going to talk about the Virus or the politics.
I’m going to tell you this…
Always, always, always, have a plan to keep in contact with your people.
What do I mean?
Welp, part of what’s going on *waves hands* out there, is people are being de-platformed.
And I ain’t discussing reasons why (because it doesn’t matter the why, just that it’s happening), but just know how to contact your people in case you, or they, are cut off.
Just that simple.
Have a safe back up contact, be it email, phone number, or even snail mail, so that if for some reason, you are cut off from the standard ways of staying in touch with your folks, you can still check in.
Here, this blog, *should* be okay.
Not a lot of politics.
Not much talk of The Virus.
So unless angry vegans come along, we should be good here. 😉
But the Farm email is on the sidebar, so I can be found, if necessary.
So that said, check out my handsome rooster:
Have a look at his leg there…
Yup, the oddball has feathers down the outside of his legs!
While there are breeds that have feathered legs and feet, I don’t have any in my flock, so this was a surprise to see!
For now, he’ll be staying on.
Mostly because it’s too cold to butcher anyone, and because I have enough hens that having 5 roosters is no big deal.
How many hens do I have?
Well…yesterday was a record laying day with 62 eggs collected.
So, uh…I have a few hens.
