    I love goats, but I don't think I'd like to raise them. It was interesting to visit Carl Sandburg's home in North Carolina; his wife was a noted goat breeder, and there are still animals there from the Sandburg herd, which the National Park Service breeds and makes available to breeders.

    My aunt emailed me about them. She lives close by and goes there to visit.

    I wouldn't mind a year without a summer! With few exceptions, it's mid-90s every day from May through early September. The 10-day forecast calls for highs from 93-97 and RealFeel (heat indexes) from 103-111. Would certainly help cut back on that $260 electric bill (and our rather small house is only kept at 80!)!!!

    I castrated four males. They will be tasty next spring. I feed them lots of corn. All the girls are my pets.
