    was on a similar path???

    I know what you are saying though, and if China became more like the USA is today they would vastly improve their health, and CO2 emissions.

    she tells me about if after i just came from the store which is 40 min. away

    Mrs Oz is more organized than anyone I know. She does not run out.

    Bernie is starting to get the hang of inventory management. I have to balance him thinking that I have an open checkbook and its ok to run out.

    Most people who have help in the Philippine will tell you how they have been taken advantage of by workers (including us) so the trust game is a very slow process.

    We had a major power outage. 10 hours. The battery was good for 6 of them but I have had pipping guineas, 40 guinea eggs, 21 duck eggs. 5 peafowl and 5 turkey slowly dying.

    Power just came on

    Here is hoping

    I think they will be just fine, especially as it is warm where you are.
    I had 120 eggs in the bator here at all stages of development, and the power was off for 10 hours. By the time the power went on the eggs were cold.

    Almost all hatched/no worst than usual [​IMG]
