building MORE beds

We have revolutionized the process a bit (thanks in a HUGE way to the Conway Daily Sun having end rolls*):
NOW, we load the Napa truck with manure, hook one of the end rolls under the tailgate, and drive, shovel, drive, shovel, drive! 

*End rolls are a product of the newspaper printing process. Once X number of papers have been run, and before another batch can be, the rolls get down to an amount that cannot be used in the machines. The rolls are taken off of the machine and set aside for alternate uses. There are literally HUNDREDS of feet of newsprint left on the roll - PERFECT for building beds!

There is a new "food" movie out, and I plan to see it this week at our local independent movie house, The Majestic in Conway. 
I don't like getting political. 
I don't like telling people what they should/should not consume (unless they are family, of course!)
I don't like shedding light on the negative part of our society. 
But... sometimes, ya just gotta!

"Fast Food"

Last weekend Pat + I traveled to Long Island for a wedding. We left at about 6am, and I was out late the night before at a farmer lecture, so I didn't get to pack us travel snacks...
About 1/2 way through our 6+ hour trip, I got HUNGRY!
Rest stop food just won't do for us now (me being gluten free and pat being glutton free), so we stopped at a grocery store instead...
