    Ralphie, on the way home from our christmas gathering DW and I were discussing plans for this spring. She and her mom are going to take her 90yr old grandma to Virginia and DC so we were trying to plan when we want to hatch eggs and order CXs and such. I brought up that I want to get turkeys this year again and so we talked about the differences and what it takes to care for them and it sounds like she might be coming around for me to try some BBBs this year.

    Coffee, that is terrific. It would seem that the country life will work better for what you want at this time in your life. I could not live in town again and be happy. One of the big factors for me is I don't want to have to deal with nosey neighbors.
    It is nice you will have a room mate.
