Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

And then it just kind of died...

Do I sound faster? If yes it may be due to my fancy new computer. My poor, long suffering laptop finally just kind of died. We are trying to get everything off the hard drive but its taking a very very long time.


I have a shiny new laptop and it's the beez kneez. It's superfast and really deluxe. Since a few folks have asked.... it's some kind of Dell thing with a 3 in the descriptive number. That's just about all that I know about it...and the "a" key is a little too far away for me. I'm having a remarkable number of 'a'-less words... I'm working on tht.. I mean... that.

Honestly, I should never have anything this nice. It will probably end up dropped, peed on, covered in flour, or flooded with coffee. So I'm being very, very careful. I need to get my pix off the other computer before I can do a proper update.

And.. you know, I gotta figure out how to use Windows 8. I spent about 10 minutes trying to tap the screen to get those fancy panels to work. It's not a touch screen and I know that now.

So in the meantime, I hope everyone was able to enjoy the mild weather. I had the windows open on Wednesday....but I understand that by Thursday morning it will be 20* and icy.

Happy Thursday everyone! For heavens sakes - it's the last day of January, how did that happen?

I know this is off topic and I haven't been around for a while, but I thought about you today when I was almost flogged by a DUCK! I was at school and there are ducks on campus. One flew right at my head. Lucky for him/her, he missed. Of course my first thought was you and some of the mean roo's you've had.
