    I crate my own custom mix pepperj. Miracle bro has nothing on my blend and it’s 100 cheaper since I buy in bulk.

    That's pretty interesting to read. When I retired and came home to live off my farm - nearly 4 years ago now, I was going into organic farming, going to sell at the local farmer's market. Started a thread in the Survival Forum, "Homesteading"...

    It has been an action packed number of years, one thing right to the next. Members keep asking me to continue the thread. I don't know what to say to them but I'm still here. Gone all berry & fruit, no veggies. Kneading that soil in my raised beds and pulling a copperhead up by the tail along with poor returns on the veggies kinda took my motivation away. Though I still have plenty room for veggies if SHTF. Those fruits need to be about 5 years old before they really take off - time to get healthy, and time to take over. Raspberries galore this past year, and they'll be even heavier this coming year.

    It's not even February, but temps into the teens here again tonight. Whatever may come, we will get by. That's called "peace".

    That’s because both have ‘Hooterville’ in common

    Hooterville is a fictional farming community that is the setting for the American situation comedies Petticoat Junction (1963—70) and Green Acres (1965—1971), two rural-oriented television shows

    I sell heirloom tomatoes and honey at the farmers markets to support myself. Lots of work but very rewarding.
    I have the best tomatoes in the entire Pacific Northwest. And beyond

    I'm south of Macon a ways. We could pick up WRBL3 in Columbus pretty good and WTVM9 so so. WMAZ13 in Macon came in fairly well, and once in a while, we could get WALB10 in Albany, but never that clearly. I remember Roller Derby on Saturday afternoons, and don't forget the Soooooooooouuuuullllll Train! No wonder we stayed outdoors all the time!

    so many memories of so many people. soon, it will be our kids talking about what about their parents had to endure. "I had to walk 4 miles thru the snow to get to school everyday!" kids can't even imagine having a phone tethered to the wall and having to play outside. Games? heck we made our own games (some got us in trouble too). if a boy had some marbles and a pocket knife, he was set. if we caught some fish or managed to get a rabbit or something, we ate it for supper. we also ate REAL HAMBURGERS back then when we were able to get one. I can still remember lying on my back and watching the clouds slowly pass by, imagining this one was a lizard or whatever. Stress? That would be if dad broke out the big brown belt or mom the peach limb, then there was real stress!

    How many hives do you have? Ive been keeping bees for years and years but more as pets - ha ha. -I don't really need to make a profit from them.(yet) I have a very rare bee here - the Capensis. they are a smallish bee but very strong producers.
    Fresh honey has a special aroma and flavour.

    Of course I remember Green Acres, it was the place to be!! LOL.....

    Gun Smoke actually started off as a radio show, with William Conrad as the lead. I still enjoy that show.

    I was watching a movie with my niece one day, when a scene came on that showed a dialup modem and the sound it made.

    She had no idea what was happening, so I had to explain to her how it worked.

    Then she asked, "couldn't you have gone to a friends house and used their internet"? LOL.......

    I should show her the picture of the kid laying on the floor tied to the house phone, that would likely blow her mind!!

    You post some of the funniest things that make me laugh out loud, dirtlooter. All that about texts and voice mail, you must be a high tech redneck, especially since I still call that an 'icebox' and not a refrigerator, haha!
    Just like Texas in 1880.

    a lot of us need to stop and laugh, most of us have our own funny experiences that tend to get lost as we get older. actually, I really struggle with the electronic stuff now, my wife has to help me on stuff like posting pictures, pasting etc. people like Red Skelton didn't have to curse to get you to laugh, they kept it pretty clean and people loved them. The icebox? I worked for years in a building lined with cork, it was the old ice plant where the huge pieces of ice would be stored. the ice was cut and sold so people could take it home to their real ice box. I can remember as a little kid (1959) going with my uncles in the old wore out ford truck to go see an armadillo, no one had seen one before and it was "exciting". now they are everywhere into everything and very destructive.

    Loved Green Acres and never could understand why those red neckians didn't tap a wire so they wouldn't have to climb a pole?

    We had one of the first TV remotes in our 'hood (mid-70's) and it came with a wire lol. 'Click-Click!'

    Electric indoor directional rotor with 30-foot tower/antenna. We're talkin late 60's, I was seven.

    Always wanted to build the Radio Electronics magazine directional long-range wifi hotspot locator, cheap, good for 8-10 miles line of sight.

    Slightly off topic, several years ago I found a radio station in Alaska which had those old radio shows available for free download. I downloaded all the Gunsmoke shows. Fun to hear. There were many shows of different names, I have a folder with them in it.
