Noticed a couple of days ago that someone had been raiding the chicken feed in the greenhouse.  At first I thought it was the roosters...till I spotted a javelina nearby on Sunday.  Caught him in the act early this morning.  I don't think I will bother building a bigger trap...closing the greenhouse door ought to do the trick.  I don't reckon they are as good at climbing as the racoons were.  80,87,63,0,B

casting grain

Placed an order for some casting grain last week with Monarch.  Making the jump from sterling to 999 fine silver for next year's minting.  Bought on the dip in silver after figuring out how good their prices are.  Saved 4% on the total by not using a credit card and doing it the old fashioned way - by mailing a check.  Just got a response that they received payment along with a postcard I just happened to have included.  78,82,59,0,B
Hello John,
Just wanted to write a quick note to thank you for sending us a copy of
"Sunday Nap with Ben."  It was a big hit around the office and currently
has a home on the fridge in the employee break room.  I think that many of
the folks around here found themselves yearning for a Ben of their own.
Thanks again,
Linda @ Monarch Precious Metals

Colossians 3If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
