New virus has infected more than 71,000 people globally

A viral outbreak that began in China has infected more than 71,000 people globally. The World Health Organization has named the illness COVID-19, referring to its origin late last year and the coronavirus that causes it.


Why Every American Should Be Proud of Presidents’ Day

In general, most people are aware that it’s a day set aside to honor the Americans who have served as our presidents throughout our nation’s history. But for many Americans, this holiday represents little more than an opportunity to relax at home or get out of town for an extended weekend.

Yet Presidents’ Day also celebrates a remarkable fact of our nation’s history that every American should be proud of: for 244 years, power has been transferred peacefully from one United States President to the next 44 times. This is not a power line determined by birth or military power, but by the people.

The New Hampshire Homesteader: Nancy Broadley

“Damn It! Peckerhead” Part 9

The temps were somewhat warm, if you can call 30 degrees warm, snowing heavily, but the barn chores needed to be done…and the barn needed cleaning! So set off at 6 a.m., shovel, pitchfork and ice chopper in hand to clean the deep, dark cavern before the deep freeze of the weekend sets in. The critters had all been fed, ice chipped from their water pails and everyone should have been content right? Wrong! The homestead doesn’t work that way!

Moving into the barn I run face first into the fluffy flucker who is pissed off that I am invading his turf! I was waiting for the drive-by shooting from the opposing gang…the Peckerhead Mafia. He stares at me as I enter, his beady eyes scoping me out…I stare back and growl. “Don’t you do it you little mofo!” I say quietly. Meanwhile, my buck comes running through, beelining for the door! With one lunge I tackle him to keep him from escape…and we roll around in the shitty hay like were bathing in the stuff, I come up with hay sticking out of my hair like a freakin spiked halo…yes, shit and all stuck in my hair…have you ever tried to comb little black turd balls from your long locks? Yeah, it ain’t easy!

I finally get the buck corralled and shoved back into his pen, tweaking my ass muscle in the process which cramps up about sending me to my knees! Peckerhead is laughing at me, thinking this is great fun and proceeds to jump from his perch and circle around me like a vulture….knowing that in my current state, I can’t freakin move! Seriously, my ass muscle locked into a spasm that paralyzed me! He takes a shot at my leg, I bust him in his chops. The yearling goatie girls are climbing me like a tree…my shovel, pitchfork and ice chipper are all outside the door so I have no weapons…..other than my gloved hands and my temper….swearing, I throw the goatee girls off of me, catch a horn in the cheek, get another swift peck to my leg…and lose it, I come up off the floor like the incredible hulk…roaring!!!!!!

I grab the fluffy flucker and bounce him off the wall, kick the goatie girls in their asses, punch my foot through the door between the bucks and the girls, threatening the bucks if they make one move I will put them into the freezer and sling the water pail out into the dooryard, yes I am two years old again and in the middle of a meltdown! Why oh why is every single chore on this homestead a battle of the fittest? Why oh why do I have a flucking fluffy pterodactyle that wants to eat me?

The barn eventually got cleaned, a little slower than I wanted but cleaned none the less…the animals survived my temper tantrum and Peckerhead is now hiding behind my hay pile, plotting and planning his next ninja attack….yes my friends, this is just a day in the life of this homesteader…and my ass still hurts!

“Damn It! Peckerhead” Part 8

We are changing the name of the series from “Hold My Iced Coffee” to “Damn It! Peckerhead”

The Homesteader Punt

Well this week has been one for the books and I am happy it is just about over…we’ve had shit weather, shit moods, shit luck this week it seems.

With the attack of the weasel last week, I had to remove my hen to a safer space, and this has caused quite the stir with the bad boy of the barnyard.  He’s been in a foul mood all week, pacing like a caged tiger, ready to attack anything and everyone that moves, including me.

Hold My Iced Coffee: Part 7

Well, Damn It Peckerhead!!!!!

Today on the homestead was just one of those days when everything, including the animals get ahead of you.  And when a predator strikes, no matter how prepared you think you are, no matter how vigilant you think you are, they kick your ass seven ways to Sunday anyway.  And today was the day of an attack!  From a slinky, snaky little weasel!

Out in the barn, I’m hucking poop, by the pitchfork full, wading in stinky, wet hay, using the sunshine and warmer temps to my advantage.  The goats are outside, screaming for more food…always screaming for more food and barging in and out through the door to demand that I, their personal slave, listen to them.  I ignore them for good reason…and think of a dog muzzle, wondering if it would work on the bleating little assholes from hell.

Hold My Iced Coffee: Part 6

So here on the homestead I am in continuous building mode…it seems there is never enough room for the frequent additions of animals to my homestead. Why? Well, Peckerhead is one of the reasons..that little flucker spends more time in solitary than he does with the other critters…because he’s an ass! So every once in a while, I have to shove him into lock down in solitary. But, for other reasons as well I build a lot. This spring I had two does pregnant, so I needed to build birthing stalls and a separate stall for the horny buck to get him away from my does. And when I build, I bleed. There is no way around it…hammers fly, tools get hucked into the woods in my fits of rage, fingernails get ripped off, and yup, its’ a freakin war zone…now throw in a nasty rooster and shots are fired across the bow…
