Happy Easter everyone. (For those who beleive , He is risen, Hallaluah!!)
I LOVE the Santa Bunny idea. That's who used to come to my house when the kids were little....2 of the 3 were born in the dead of winter, so it was a good excuse to give them things they were going to need for summer.
Good luck and Congrats to all the Easter Hatchers out there. I'm with Stony, I don't take eggs out of "hatch mode" until Day 25, having had several occations where the chicks hatched on Day 24. Since I SUCK at candling, I just sit on my hands and wait. (and you see how much typing I do, so you can well imgaine how hard it is for me to just sit on my hands and count the days going by)
There is a new Yahoo group aimed at preppers. It is just starting out, so only has a few people on it.... Give it a look see if you are inclined that way... firstname.lastname@example.org
(It's not my group, but I figure I may pick up some tips about places to get things if nothing else)
For all my coffee drinking friends Ray (the coffee addict in my life) has declared the Coffee at Aldi's very drinkable....and it's $5.99 a 3 pound can. WOW!!! Can't beat that with a stick. I am going to go back and get 10 or so, cuz, if you've ever shopped at an Aldi's, you know that they don't have everything in stock at all times like a traditional market.
At this exact moment Ray is outside making the door for my newly open cellar. DRY and everything. (Nothing is dry here in the town I live in, water table is about 6 feet down, in the dry season, much higher in the rainy season) I am so excited to have access to a dry place to store things. I have lost hundreds of dollars worth of good stuff in the dampness of the basement here and there is no attic as an alternative for storage. And, as you all know, getting rid of perfectly good stuff is NOT an alternative for people like me...it must be saved in case I need it some day.
Gotta go check on all my teenage chicks. I got sick of the smell and noise so they are all out in the small side of the coop. They sure can drink a LOT of water....I might have to put a second gallon waterer in there when it starts to get really warm out.
Have a good day
