Thanks to everyone who was able to make it to our farm yesterday. Good fun was had by all. Kids enjoyed flying their kites, playing on our brand new play set (thanks Tom L.!), being packed by chickens, feeding goats and just being kids. The weather mostly cooperated and it was rather pleasant outside well into the evening. The only exception was Joey's rocket launch, which had to be postponed due to the otherwise mild wind.

Yesterday around 9 in the morning, a big yellow dog, apparently belonging to one of my neighbors, trespassed once again this time attacking and killing two of my chickens, a very productive egg laying bantam hen and my big black La Fleche cock. The dog seeing me approach, ran off as fast as it could - to the west and past the forested windbreak. When I arrived on the scene, it was already too late - feathers everywhere and two feathered carcasses was all that remained. Unfortunately, I never got around to breeding the black cock to the several La Fleche hens that the dog spared...

I absolutely love this quote from Steven Allison of UCI: “Microbes aren’t the destructive agents of global warming that scientists had previously believed.” Read on...

Pilot Lt. Miroslav "Steve" Zilberman was born in Kiev, Ukraine. Moved with his parents to Columbus, OH, when he was in the sixth grade. Joined US Navy to pay for college.

Miroslav died on March 31, 2010 in the North Arabian Sea at the age of 31. His E-2C Hawkeye plane's engine failed as he was returning from a mission in Afghanistan. He saved his entire crew, but was not able to save himself. His call sign was Abrek, just like one of the first two Soviet space monkeys.
