Always A Good Day for Ducks


Ducks love rain.

The other day, I was watching an Alton Brown “Good Eats” episode about cooking duck and he was talking about the fat in ducks, which is related to why they can float in water, then mentioned the funny thing about that is that ducks hate rain.

I was like….WHAT?! Clearly, Alton has never had ducks. THEY LOVE RAIN.

I still love Alton Brown. But he needs to stick to cooking tips, not duck behavior!

    Pepper loves water! Or–

    This rooster has places to go, things to do!

    What’s he running after so eagerly? Cracked corn? A lusty hen? A PILE OF FRESH COW POOP? (Oh so appetizing!)

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either.
