Rabbits 101

We got Abbey and Wyatt 2 rabbits yesterday for 4H club. After talking to the breeder, I am going to start breeding meaty rabbits for food. They only take 12 weeks to raise to eating size and they mate like crazy. The meat is supposed to be very lean as well. It comes out to 1-2 dollars per lb of meat after processing. A very sustainable way to grow your own meat without having a lot of property for cows, buffalo or pigs and cheap too. I'll have to figure out what to do with the rabbit furs. Whoever is reading this better be prepared to get some rabbit fur presents in the mail. We are still trying to find Abbey an Angora rabbit so she can use the long fur for spinning and knitting. That will be cool.

The boys are in robotics and building some cool stuff. We have met several great families as well in the 4H. Lots of great people out here, intelligent, level headed, practical and responsible.

Record month for the sites. Getting there slow and steady.

Happy New Year 2011

Happy to say I made it through another new year. Although I am a bit bored with life right now, especially with this winter being so cold and being inside so much and working so much, I still have a glimmer of hope in the future of this country and world. We just need to change people one by one. Educate kids one by one. And help each other one by one. We can't change the corrupt system all at once, it is too big. Crooks like obama and pelosi and reid are basically power hungry thieves and looters that laugh at the ignorant american people and know they have created a nation of wimps that refuse to stand up for freedom or their god given rights. I think there is an awakening of sorts going on right now, but whether we can avoid the chaos that is coming is another story. Americans are too lazy to read their history and see what is coming and going to happen. This is not the first time this has happened in history.

I need to give a shout out to Abbey, my daughter. She is perhaps the hardest working kid I have seen in my life. If all kids were like her, this country would be a better place in the future.

Locals say this has been the coldest winter in 13 years in MT.
