All we watch is Netflix.  I laugh at how people complain when the rate goes up.  Heck with cable starting at $80 month do believe the $13 for Netflix is a steal.

You just got to figure out what you like to watch.  My only beef with Netflix is if you have a show you really like it doesn't take much to burn through a show.  Or you get suckered & binge watch.

Lets see:

House of Cards

Designated Survior

Royal Pains

Outlander

Office

Parks & Rec's

Person of Interest

Walking Dead

Rain

100

American Horor

Midwife

Greatest British Baking Show

There have been a number of other show really enjoyed but because no more seasons no reason to watch.

 

Yes, I think its well worth the money vs. cable/internet. And yes, I am binge watching Stranger Things lol...it is very easy to do and very convenient. 

I will check those shows out, I already have a few on my radar so to speak. And I already watch The 100 on regular tv.

QB watch Heartland it is a Canadian production & you will really like it.  Very down home that will make you laugh & cry.  I so love that one.

I watched 1/2 episode of Stranger Things but with the busy day & not being a hubby show it is really hard to get into it.  We have watched some comedy stand up acts.  We really enjoyed & had a great laugh with Martin Short meet Steve Martin.  Also watched Amy Fischer? that was another funny.  This past week we have been enjoying Royal Pains.

There are a number of movies but it is again finding what you like.  Tonight Shortman & I watched Mary Popins Returns, we really enjoyed it stadly Netflix doesn't have the original so Shortman is lost when I bring it up.  Heck, Amazon has it but they want you to buy it.

I lite British mysteries and nature shows.  I watched Free Rein with LJ.  He wanted to see how girls think, lol!   We tried not to roll our eyes too much when they described one of the horses as a rare Thoroughbred Keiger Mustang.

Sorry, no horse reads here.  How is LJ enjoying horse camp?  Shortman is sure enjoying his time at camp this year.  He had to laugh because of the boys he doesn't care for went in the muck of the lake & came out with leeches.

Heartland used to come on one of my regular tv stations years ago. Not sure whatever happened to it. I may start it all over.

Its funny how you can instruct till you are blue in the face & they won't listen.  Be told how to by a stranger & they listen.

My housekeeper is Miss Rodeo Queen this year & was nice to give us two tickets for Sat night.  This will be Shortman's first time & will have to find Miss Rodeo for a pic of her all dolled up.  She has really long straight hair(the rodeo committee requires very big hair)  & I've been teasing her about having to use Aqua Net to get the curls to stick.  When she came into work told her it is safe to smoke around her without going up in flames.

Lol!

We are down to just three cows.   Fiona and her calf, plus Krowka, the red cow.  They have been subdued and depressed since we sold the others.  The calf misses her playmate.  Krowka misses her mother.  Krowka will have her calf soon, so that will help.  I am trying to spend more time with them.  These herd animals get upset when they lose their friends.  Our pasture just wasn't big enough.  No way to explain to them that it was too expensive.  Fiona is mostly back to her old self, but Krowka is withdrawn.  I hope she forgives me.

LC, Very understandable since your herd is on small side, your cows can notice the difference very quickly, with loss of their buddies,  but you did it so the others so they would have something to eat.  your intentions were good, & they will adjust with time.  But I'm proud you are a feeling person, & care deeply about your critters.  That is awesome.   Take Care PD

Wow, that certainly is small.  Will you continue to breed the cows by AI so you have calf crops?  I'm sorry your cows are upset with the changes.  I hope they adjust soon.

LC - my favorite Netflix British mystery show is Happy Valley - check it out if you haven't seen it.  It's like Broadchurch, but better.  Themes are pretty dark, though, great characters.   We love historical fiction and the Last Kingdom is amazing.

Thanks, PD.

Heidi, we are pretty much done breeding.  Ursa, Fiona's last calf, might become a draft animal (ox), but no plans to breed right now.  Krowka may get milked, depending on how she does with handling over the next few weeks.  I'm happy with the contribution we've made to the breed.  There are some nice tempered Dexters with good builds that came from our farm.  Most of the heifers that we sold are family milk cows now.  We also produced a few good bulls.  

We turned the donkey and goat out with the cows.  It went well.  The playful goat intrigues Ursa.  They might become playmates. 

On the bright side, we are not far from lambing season.  They have two small pastures and a paddock, just for the sheep.  Four ewes, three were twins, and one was a triplet.  It's about to get crazy.

Yay!!!!!  in 29 hours the last of the rodeo rv park guest will be gone for good.  The rv park is getting closed permanently as Oct 1 this year.  I swear these people are going to drive me to the loony bin.

So tonight we are going to the rodeo.  Instead of general seating tickets I had managed to get reserved seats that are in a great spot just down from the chutes.  Shortman is going to really enjoy it.

Hope you all have a great morning, I've got the coffee on please help yourself.

RRW, have fun at the rodeo!   

I have no experience with RVs.  They seem so self contained.  Why are they such a pain?  

I'll have to pass on the coffee, unless it's decaf.  No one, and I mean no one, wants to see me on coffee.  My normal waking state is hyper, especially in the morning.  

Surgery to remove the gallbladder is scheduled later this week.  I have to pack in enough feed and hay to make sure I don't have to lift anything for a week or so after surgery.  Not sure how fast I am going to recover, but hubby wants me to get a petsitter to help.  Don't wanna, but I might have them come once per day to check waters.  I think I will turn everyone out for couple of days because I can't expect a petsitter to clean the stalls.

LC, if you are a go go type of person you would be surprised at how coffee can mellow you out.  It really works good for me to calm down.

The general clientele are a pain in the donkey butt that I just don't want to deal with anymore.

Wishing you the very best with your surgery. Im sure everything will go perfect and you'll find the recovery isnt so bad.

Good lord guys its hot and humid here! How anything can live outside in this heat is beyond me.

I bought a circular saw...and I love it! I cant wait to show you guys a pic of the project Im doing. The cutting is done and its being hung on the wall tomorrow but Im just waiting for some hooks to come from Amazon before I take pics. I think my landlord even likes it!

Speaking of the landlord, we had a chat today and he wants to sell the remaining 2 minis, Margarita and June. Zarinna is not holding up her end of the deal, and neither is her mother. Zarinna is supposed to check their salt bucket everyday and make sure they always have (loose) salt, and she hasnt. I could tell/remind her til Im blue in the face, and its not going to happen. Additionally she hasnt payed them any attention at all all summer. I even suggested that she look up videos on youtube on how to train them to do tricks. Shes always on youtube. She hasnt looked for one video. Her mom never payed for the farrier visit weeks ago, and theyre due again. The landlord wants to sell the minis, and rightly so. I hate to see them go, especially June. Would I be a fool to keep June? She could be a companion for Sonic and I would like to get into driving one day. Ive even gone as far as to inquire the cost of training June for driving last month. The verdict was thats shes actually not old enough yet to pull weight, so the trainer suggested I wait and just keep ground driving her til shes old enough. What do you guys think?

Lastly, anyone have an air fryer? What do you use it for? Favorite thing to cook in it?

QB life is a much happier place with a mini in it.  You can work on ground driving just not with any weight on her.  FYI my son was sad when he heard the mini's especially this years babies were sold.

We don't have an air fryer but have read it works well with certain foods but not all.  Just do a little research.

RailroadWoman and noponies, I think Ill talk to the landlord tomorrow and see if I can either keep June or buy her from him. I could still have kids play with her and show her in hand until shes ready to drive. I never ever thought Id have a mini, even have said I wouldnt have one if ya gave it to me, but I do really like June.

Oh, and I went ahead and bought an air fryer. Threw some frozen fries in it tonight and they turned out good. Ill have to try more stuff in it. My brothers best friend loves his so Im sure he can give me meal ideas.

I dont go back to work til the weekend. Tomorrows agenda is to stop by the library and get my fishing license so I can go fish at the state park up the road from me. A coworker pulled out a 8lb bass from the state park last week. Then Ill run to Southern States and grab a couple more tomato plants. Just gotta get my dirt from the farm first.

QB I'd take another mini in a heart beat & half.  Had I known I'd like working more from the ground than the saddle  I'd be a crazy piny lady. The minis are so much fun & I miss my two like no tomorrow.

I like minis...mini donkeys!  

Actually, we don''t need a mini because we have a Shetland Pony.  Maggie's personality is awesome.  She's 20 this year and has been going to the Scottish games now for almost ten years.  She is worth her weight in gold as a first mount for kids.  With John getting bigger, I am starting to really look for a horse for him.  One of those precious geldings no one ever gets rid of because they are so wonderful. It will be a long search.

LC you'll find the perfect Steady Eddie for LJ.  Eddie will be found when you are not looking.

Last night I was board & was looking at puppy ads on Craig's list.  Somehow I found a Fjord for sale at what say was a reasonable price.  Sadly we are not living at the farm or I'd go take a look.

^^^ Donkeys are very smart. She probably has made the connection between the spray and freedom from flies.
