So after yesterdays little tiff, i have decided to for give you for being mean to me and making me feel bad. Also as a token of friendship i am doing this blog at the library in a hot cubicle with people all around me, just for you. Not too much is going on right now as far as construction of the site is concerned, i don't have the time to do any major reordering and the only way i will be able to do it is if i take the time on Friday when i get the day off. So i would say if i can't get to the blog before then i will do some renovating on it Friday, so check then for some fun updates. Work is good i got my boss to o.k. me to come in at 6am instead of 4am and the sleep is nice, but i hate knowing that the rest of the crew has gone home at 1 and i have to stay till 3, I guess there is just no pleasing me. Becca has been having odd dreams lately and is having trouble sleeping and i think her sleep problems are bleeding over to me because the last three nights i haven't slept too deeply and end up being tired all day long.
So here is some food for thought for you readers. I have been reading a book about being self sufficient and using your land like a large garden or up to a small farm (5 acres) to provide for most if not all of what a family needs. One of the things it talks about is a making a methane digestor, which in simple terms is a animal waste container that links to a gas container to store the methane gas from the waste, which than can be used to burn for cooking and heating or used in natural gas type engines to power cars and generators. So the question for everyone to think about is,

if you could create enough gas to supply your home cooking and heating, run a generator for all your electrical needs and produce enough natural gas to drive a car around for your work and errands, thus effectively disentangling yourselves from the world energy crisis and price hiking would you be willing to pay the price of installing and converting the equipment and then run a small to medium farm with pigs, cows, horses and the whole lot and everyday go out and get more "fuel" for your methane digestor. Let me know I'm willing to see what everyone thinks.

    Thank you Allan. I love you more than all the others. I can't wait to get my fill of Vitamin A in person sometime. I will give you a call tomorrow night possibly. Gotta stay away from those daytime minutes... Sprint Bill was over $200 last month. OUCH!

    I say you can have a methane digester on our farm if you are the one picking up the fuel. I want no part in it, thank you very much.
