Thanks Claire so much for your comments on my blog. Yes I was terrified by my close encounter with a bear, particularly while I was banging on the door trying to get back in the house. The black bears in this area usually don't attack humans, but the sows are always very dangerous if one is too near to her cub. Luckily the whole experience was over very quickly! and I have no desire to repeat the close encounter. (Seeing a bear in the distance is always a thrill; seeing one in your own front yard is terrifying!)

I REALLY enjoyed reading about your Rome trip. You shared so many delightful neighborhoods, sculptures, and architecture. When I traveled on the cruise, we saw mostly the main tourist attractions. Your blog gives such a great feeling of the rest of the city!

Hello Claire,
We have never owned Ducks or Chickens. One of the reasons we decided to have Ducks was for the eggs. I hope we enjoy the taste of Duck Eggs, as we have never tried any. These particular type of Ducks (Muscovy) don't quack. They are nice and quiet. Make more of a hiss then anything once they are adults.
Here's a link that gives a bit of info on the Ducks. Their face is a bit funky looking, but their eyes are a beautiful color.

We would love a home in the country side as well. Never say never!!
Hope you have a fantastic day!!
