I'm about to try to make maple syrup candy for the first time. Wish me luck!

:droolMaple syrup candy is delicious.

I've never done any candy making before but it was easy and turned out really well (though messy because I didn't start pouring soon enough). I looked at buying a mold, but just ended up using a mini muffin pan, which worked fine. :thumbsup

Thanks - I needed that! I'm home sick again today - got the dizzies (inner ear condition), and can't drive or read. I can look at the computer but only in spurts. And the ear ringing is SOOOOOOOOO loud today. :he

That something new? I don't recall them caring if I froze getting to school. 

That's cause kids were a lot tougher 50 yrs ago :P

 

50 years ago, I lived in Georgia, cold and snow wasn't much of an issue, one year had a bad Ice storm and cold in January, dad didn't get to golf for a couple of weeks. lol

When I was in school in Atlanta, they cancelled school one day with no snow - but it was -8F. They decided (correctly, IMHO) that most children in Atlanta did not own the proper clothing to stand at the bus stops at that temperature.

Latest I've been golfing around here was probably about new years a couple years ago. Then again I've gone golfing in a snowstorm before.

I've golfed in some pretty bad weather, too.

My brother came to visit me once, and wanted golf the whole week. He insisted, regardless of the weather. Never golfed in that much rain in all my life. But it was kind of fun in a very goofy, silly way after a while. :D

this is NOT FOOD!

Michael Pollen says "Eat food. Mostly Plants. Not too much". He also says don't eat anything your great-grandmother wouldn't recognize as food. (So much for Go-Gurt!)

The only thing dumb enough to be out in that weather is an idgit like me. Any self-respecting deer is laid up out of the wind, where they'll stay 'til it calms down. The heater can't keep up in this wind, & those windows ain't near air-tight.

Yea all the smart deer are holed up. That's why I always hunted for the dumb ones.

Well, all the dumb ones are in my neighbor's yard, staring at me. Boy am I glad I got that fence up.

She WOULD, she WOULD!!!!! Then again, Sally's asking LoveChicks when she's setting eggs again, and the current chicks are barely dry!!!!! :th

 

OK, enough screen time for now, gonna go lie down. BBL.

Was she looking for fresh air?

That really looks bad. Does he hate you now, and me?
I don't get it. Your temps and humidity is almost the same as mine.
I took these pics of roosters in buildings the last couple days with huge windows on both east and west walls at roost height. The wind blows right through and I don't worry about the cold. I hope this helps.




















I put Gro2Max in chicks first water and occasionally through their lives.

I went to get new glasses. My distance (20') ones were lost and the other pair lost a lens. Now I have glass instead of glasses.

Since you will already know where you are and have a map, I recommend a clear baseplate compass. They're pretty cheap.

The kind I had at my brother's house was mostly for finding the NSEW direction to a point of reference like a peak
He doesn't seem to hat us, but boy would I understand. He is reserved out and about, but easy off the roost.
The more I have tried to figure it out the only thing I can think of is that I shut the coop early one night when it was going to be cold. I wonder if the temperature change with it shut early instead of after dark like normal caused too much humidity? I will never know. I am going to move him for Saturday and Sunday because of the huge temperature swings we are expecting. He is in enough pain. I will not let it be made worse.

And of course you used REAL maple syrup right? Not the "maple" syrup they sell in stores.

 

And people wonder why there pretty plants and flowers always get mowed down. It's cause of deer like those.

The voices in my head are fighting again.

 

My imaginary friend is running with scissors, and one of my personalities wandered off.

 

I don't like to think before I speak. I like to be just as surprised as everyone else about what comes out my mouth.

 

Sometimes even I am afraid of the things my mind comes up with.

We've been using them for several years, and keep her sister supplied with them...no problems.

Okay, I'm headed out the door to the blind. I'll be able to read posts, but won't be able to post myself. If you don't hear from me the rest of the day, grab an ice axe & come on down.
I am glad you guys are ok. I hope you get a deer today.

By pale face, are you referring to her comb and wattles?

Dusting with DE may help but won't cure the lice/mites. Follow the directions you've been given at least 20 times for treatment.

 

Sorry to say it but some people shouldn't have chickens.

23 isn't that cold for most chickens. It hit -19 F a couple years ago. Hens had no problems.

Well that's your problem, not the cold. I thought you took care of that over a week ago.

You should do what was suggested last week. Until you do what was suggested, why ask for advice again?



We had about 200 of each species. I miss working there.

Hi Heather, Sorry work is so busy and your daughter was sick. Exciting news about the puppy though.

Very interesting! 

Wow! That's awesome.

Chickens are wearing a down coat. Unless she is seriously ill she does not need a heat lamp. she won't stay under it because she is not cold. You said she has mites and lice so get some poultry dust powder for mites and lice like you were told to and treat her for them.

Growing up in AK, we never had a snow day, but they did close school one day because of the cold. Of course, it was seventy below zero and the busses would not run tongue.png
