Thomas Jefferson Said It..........

"And what country can preserve its liberties, if it's rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure."

"Congress has not unlimited powers to provide for the general welfare but only those specifically enumerated."

“A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor and bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.”

Weekend Adventures

Last week was spring break and I had three whole days off in a row. With all this free time I decided to go down to the farm. I haven't been down there in months and there were a couple of new baby goats that were born the weekend before which of course I wanted to play with.

While I was there 5 babies were born!

We had one momma goat just lay down in the yard and give birth out in the open right in the middle of everything (which is very unusual for goats). She and her two babies just stayed right there all day, even when the herd moved on she never moved. But when it got dark they were still out there even though the other goats had gone back to the barn. We couldn't just leave the babies out there in the open all night, it would not be safe for them so we decided to pick them up and put them in the closest barn for the night.

But when we picked them up and moved them, momma goat went crazy! She started running around screaming at the top of her lungs. She was so scared, she thought we were taking her babies from her and hurting them I suppose. She was so scared and I felt so bad for her. It took us atleast 10 minutes to herd her into the barn that her babies were in, but when she finally realized they were safe in the barn she calmed down.

Baby Goats A Few Hours Old

Last weekend was alot of fun. I'm glad I was able to spend that time with my family.  :)

Worse then the Avian Flu

Everywhere I go I have to listen to Angry Birds this and Angry Birds that. I have played the game and it is pretty fun but not so fun that my entire life should revolve around it. The radio is not safe, the internet is not safe, and now work is not safe.

A couple of people at work have become so addicted to this game that they are playing it at work, even when we are behind on our workload. Seriously?

When I saw this video I knew that I just had to share, because I love Star Trek and frustrated with everyone addicted to Angry Birds so I found it completely hilarious. : )
