A Friend Needs Help

Some of you might have seen this post but I am posting it here also.  Maybe you can share her link also to help.

When American Prepper was in it's early stages a bunch of us jumped in and worked the blogs.  We've been on message boards, and radio shows, etc., I have stated previously that I have met the most amazing people through Prepper, from fellow bloggers to commentators and that still stands.   Well, mmpaints from Self Sustained Living needs a hand.  If you will, click on her link to find out her story.  If you ever needed to know how to grow it, kill it, cook it,or can it, she would tell you all the while making some great cheese too!   On my best day she makes me look like I am standing still.  Mmpaints recently had the rug pulled out from under her and knowing how that is I wanted to share this with you.  If you a few dollars left over from couponing, or whatever, and if you can't maybe you can share her link to get the word out.  I would hate to see her lose her farm after how hard she has worked all these years.  Thank you for hearing me out.

First it was the Boston Bomber's Wife

When they were questioning the Boston Bomber's wife a while back a statement was released that they were going through her phone calls.  Not her phone records, her phone calls.  I asked DH, how can they do that?  Then came the AP/Fox scandal followed by Edward Snowden.  Now everyone is "shocked" at the NSA and Edward Snowden is a "traitor".  Hey did you know we also hacked China and Hong Kong?  Well, at least we haven't been just a victim all these years.   While the Patriot Act was being  tossed around you might want to look up who the Gang of Eight was at that time, there is a Mississippian in there...
Also, I caught the beginning of a satire on the radio the other morning of a recording when the IRS is called;  press 1 if you are a tea party supporter, press 2, if you are pro-life, press 3 if..... you get the picture.
I would like to say we have no where to go but up, but I know better.  So here I am with the new blog and my first rant. 
I have some pictures of small silly projects that I worked on while in stress mode and two new cookbooks.  I'll be back.


Here I Am

I had a problem renewing my domain, Shoestring Manor, and now it doesn't look like I will be able to.  It is a huge pain relocating but maybe it's better to dust off the cobwebs a little.  I will not be registering this domain it will just remain under blogger.  More posts to follow shortly.
