    Fingers crossed for the storm Oz. I hope good preparation makes for least damage. And that the fence line holds up should the power go out for too long.

    my understanding is pigs will only poop in 1 corner of their pen (down wind)
    so if you keep that 1 corner clean you should have little smell

    Marily was in contact with her mother in the province
    all of the fishing boats have been pulled up the beach & are now all lined up on 1 side of the street
    my inlaws have a cement block house so not much chance of it blowing away
    the roof is another matter

    the people who only have a bamboo hut down by the ocean will probably be needing to build another once the storm is finished
    such is the life in the Philippines

    the storm that just hit vietnam was the "little" category 2 that nuisanced the philippines last weekend. this one is a category 5. it will probably weaken to a 3 or even 2 by the time it hits us. as so few are big enough to effect us below the 10N line, we dont get many

    Was just chatting with a friend who has pigs and lets her spare roosters free range in the same area.

    Seems like the pigs will eat any roosters they can catch.

    our last batch of sows, wilma and betty, ate chickens that tried to sneak some of their feed. a pig can move pretty fast!

    the new pig area is chicken proof
