Welcome to the Blogosphere

After neglecting my email newsletter for some time, I’ve decided to throw in the towel and go to a blog format. This frees me from all the distribution headaches of maintaining a mailing list with thousands of names on it, and makes it easier to get material up on the Web where it belongs.

All the back issues of the newsletter are still available. Thanks to everyone for your interest in it over the years, and I’m hoping that this less-grueling format will allow me to provide you with plenty of interesting material.

  1. I wondered what happened to the newsletters, but am glad that you now have a blog. I liked the blog about the tractor, and the lesson on fixing the smaller problems with what you have, rather than longing for something fancier that you probably couldn’t afford. I am not an expert by any means, but am learning how to reuse, recycle and re-purpose things.

    I am thinking of using some scrap linoleum “rug” to help me keep my poultry house cleaner and easier to keep cleaner. I just have to measure what I can use for the hallway and closet in my house from the smaller piece and somehow hope the larger piece will work for the poultry house. I think chickens are a little cleaner than ducks (I have both) and that the linoleum will save the floor and make messes easier to clean up.

  2. I am just glad that you are back to writing. As a neophite just starting a backyard poultry for my personal use. I was raised on a farm but that was 50 years ago when I left. Having to relearn so much. With the economy going south, my retirement is not going to be sufficient in the future. So I am taking measures to provide more of my own food.

    I look forward to your blogs. Thank you so much.

  3. I, also, am glad you are back to writing. I value your knowledge and experience. I expect that allowing people to add their knowledge to yours may be a good thing.
    I have 9 urban chickens and I have never enjoyed any other hobby so much.
    Thanks for being here for all of us!

  4. glad to see you back, you have been missed! I look forward to the interesting articles, and the experience you have gained.
