Been getting a few things in the mail lately. Ordered these items. One came yesterday. I had read on one of these logs about the Butterick book of Recipes and Household hints. Started reading it (published in 1927) and was laughing because most of the hints and recipes were the same hints and recipes were exactly identical to the ones we hear so often today. Things like don't eat read meat more than three times per week, buy skim milk instead of whole, eat fruit twice per day, by whole grain cereal, eat butter not margarine, use moderate amounts of sugar, etc. I find this funny as we always feel that we've "discovered" the right way to do things. Taint so folks, what's been discovered was done so years before us.
Picked the garden again last evening and watered. We need a little rain as the yard is cracking again. Mowed the lawn. Daughter is going to meet me and is going to have me to dinner. Wonder what she wants??
The big news around the farm is that oil and gas wells are being drilled at an incredible rate and that rate should pick up in the future. I'm still waiting for my well to be dug. A deep 3_D seismic is going to be shot over the next year or two and I'm hoping they find a HUGE pool of oil under my place. I'd have the money to do . . . . . Of course I'd have lots of sleepless nights because the drilling rigs are big and lit up. I bet the space station could see the lights!!!!
