cpr class, life cycle, little white chicken, grasshoppers,

well went ahead and did my cpr class     now i have a card and am in the computer system so they will catch me again in  2 years to do it again     then i will have to wonder again why i have to do cpr class again
it is 30-2 except in 2 person cpr on a child then it is 15-2

we had a chicken we called 'the little white chicken'-that was her name     when i went to the coop to let the chickens out she was usually the first to come down to get the first of the chicken scratch in am     yesterday she was did not come down so looked every where for her      thought she might be sitting on eggs     no "little white chicken"
usually when this happens something got the chicken during the day time     she was the little chicken with white feathers that all the others picked on     she hardly had any feathers left     we tried to keep her away from the others at night-thats when they would peck at her     she would have anything to do with being away from the group     she would go up in coop early and hide behind ms round rock(her story in later blog)
asked my wife about her    she said she had found her a few days before dead  
she(not my wife)  was placed in the pasture where the rest of her late relatives are
this is the life cycle that all living things go through   we have to respect the life cycle

we are overran with grass hoppers    they love to eat my citrus plants    use kaolin clay which is used in pottery and is a powder that looks like white flour    sprinkle this on the leaves when they eat the leaves the kaolin clay clogs up their mouthparts and they die
our chicken run goes around my garden so that the chickens get a lot of the bugs and grasshoppers before they reach the garden
we did have guineas they are a grasshopper eating machine     but the life cycle took care of all 7
eventually we plan to get more

dont use that bad week grass killer you get at store    not always good for environment
yesterday i sprayed my weeds in my driveway and walkways and at garden edge with the organic
recipe which is 9 or10 or 20 % vinegar+2 ounces of orange oil+1 tsp of liquid soap per gallon of vinegar
spray it like you would the bad stuff    it burns heck out of the grass weeds etc so they die
is not harmful to environment


so what is it     if you buy a latte or coffee etc at $2.50 everyday of month and year then in 1 month you have spent $75 a month and $900 a year and $9000     save that money over ten years and you will have more than $9000 saved to use for retirement or other things


someone wanted to know what this was      it is not the name of a new cantelope    my wifes mom my motherinlaw(the energizing bunny-will talk about her later) loves cantelope      she comes to vist every summer  so i plant cantelope for her to eat fresh from my organic chemical free garden
thats what a motherinlaw cantelope is     although i did misspell it--it is cantaloupe
