Dragonflies
 Most people think dragonflies are beautiful, lovely creatures, and love that they help keep the mosquito population down.  Which is great. They also eat ants, termites, and other small insects. Including bees. Bees.  Yes, bees.  Honey Bees. MY Bees. I want...

Risks with Incubating Shipped Eggs
Sixteen eggs that had to be removed from the incubator. There are risks involved with incubating shipped eggs. Sometimes even the very best packing job by the seller doesn't mean your eggs will develop. How the shipment of eggs is handled during transit by...

Building a City Biddy Coop

  Here's a quick walk through of the house.  After this, everything will be in real time as we slowly remodel this place.   This is the dining room to the guest bedrooms view from the kitchen area of the home.  That little half wall is half the size, and th...

Third Times The Charm
This is how our home looked when we first set eyes on it in June. It was advertised as a "banging buy on the water that won't last long!" And it didn't. It was only listed 3-4 days before we found it. Our realtor was amazing and had way more information tha...
