I have telephone poles. I do not know why. They were here when I got here. In a couple fields, several poles. Robbie and Rodney started dragging them out tonight to make posts for the 16-foot gates I’m having delivered tonight.

    Either 3 6′ posts or 2 8′.

    PS. My dh was very happy to point out that the bread-n-herbs retreat occurred during the weekend of the summer solstice.

    Yes you might get buy this way but it is chancy .

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. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
