Hello Mammy & Myrna,

My goodness Mammy, Viper can cook! It all sounds wonderful including the pies she sent back with you.

Myrna sorry your experiencing turmoil.

Yesterday I cleaned (248 toes & 10 vents) and moved the chicks. So glad to have that done.

The plan is they'll stay in the kiddie pool for a week then I'll move them out of the pool and onto flooring with pine shavings.

Hi Myrna am back home now it was a lovely visit, she cooked steak pie chips and peas and followed by rurbarbe pie and icecream, it was yummy. I sorted out all the stuff on her computer so she was happy. She was delighted to see us.

She made a chicken pie and 2 apple pies and 2 steak pies for me to bring back with me. So I gave gordy a steak pie and gave the chicken one and an apple one to the lady next door kept a steak one for me and an apple one..

He has decorated all her flat for her and it looks a treat they looked and sounded very happy together emoticon

Good evening Mammy and keke. I am really late here tonight. DD has gone out with daniel tonight because it is his birthday tomorrow. I have already pre-warned him not to listen to any of DD's advise. He is so depressed I am really worried about him. Michael is also not coping, he had a terrible day looking after the children. Jackie is having a 24-hour heart monitor test tomorrow and is petrified they will find something wrong. Her DH thinks there is something wrong with his pacemaker. I am trying not to get too stressed but it is not easy. My life is like a house of cards.

Hello Mammy & Myrna,

Mammy I bet you don't miss the daily Viper. Maybe Viper keeps one flap closed so she can keep the other open, ha ha.
(Did I just type that?) emoticon

Myrna your son has his hands full but that's his business. Nobody has the right to judge that. He's obviously is a good man and loves the children. They're lucky to have him.

Have you had your fill on chicken questions and answers? ha ha I added you as a friend to my private page. I put a link in today's blog to a chick video that I uploaded to my YouTube channel if you get bored and want to watch cute yellow chicks.

Good morning Mammy and keke. I am going to be a chicken expert soon lol. Mammy had a terrible time when Viper lived in the flat above hers. Viper was a real menace, Mammy you are just too kind. Since Viper moved and got her boyfriend she has become all sweetness and light.
I do have the children today. Michael has canceled coming to me twice. 2 of his children are not well and now both his in-laws are in hospital so he is looking after 4 of his children while his ex is staying at her parents home.

Hello Mammy and Myrna,

I'm laughing. Mammy sounds like your a slave to Viper, LOL I'm just kidding, I'm sure she's a good friend who appreciates all that you give and to for her.

The pork and gravy sounds delicious.

No I've never watched Scandal. I mostly like to watch movies on the DVD or on my computer on YouTube.

Myrna the chicks can travel one to two days. The hatchery ships them the same day as they hatch (yes day old chicks).

Here's a mini education on chicks. Prior to the chick hatching the chick absorbs the yolk of the egg which is it's nourishment for the first few days of it's life.

The hatchery placed a heat pack to keep the chicks warm and they keep each other warm as well. When they arrive I dip their beaks into room temperature sugar water to show them where it is and because they're thirsty. The sugar wakes them up a little too as they might be stressed from the travel. For the first couple of days I give them sugar water then switch over to water with apple cider vinegar. This is a benefit to keep their digestive system healthy.

Yesterday the chicks got vent care. Pasty Butt is a condition that occurs in baby chicks when droppings stick to the down surrounding their vent. Poop builds up to form a blockage that can be fatal to the chicken unless removed.

The runt (chick) passed away. It was probably stressed from the travel. Now I'm down to 31 chicks. Sometimes that happens.

Look at all the sleeping chicks after getting their behinds cleaned, they ran around, ate, drank and fell asleep. They're all spread out which means the temperature of the brooder is correct otherwise they'd be on top of one another.



Myrna, I'll friend you if you want to visit my blog and see the pics of the chicks I post.

Good evening Mammy and Keke, I am back. I have to wait until Nightfall an hour later than when I went off the day before. It is not as complicated as it sounds. it is dusk to dusk.
I so enjoyed looking at the little chicks they are so sweet. It must be very difficult for them traveling by post. How long does it take? Do they have water on the way? how do they travel?

Hello Mammy & Myrna,

Mammy I remember Myrna stating that she practices the Sabbath on Friday and Saturday so she doesn't come on the computer.

Enjoy your chilling time Mammy! Sounds like you're going to be chilling in a nice warm bed, ha ha.

We visited DS, brought his concert Tuxedo and took him out to lunch. DD was busy so she couldn't join us.

DD purchased our tickets for the Concert Choir performance on March 4th. I'm looking forward to watching DS sing in the choir again. Eric Whitaker ~ Grammy-winning American composer, conductor, and speaker will be conducting. Every performance this conductor conducts is sold out so I'm glad our seats are reserved. This is going to be amazing!

I'll be working on getting those chicks moved out. It's nice to have them inside to watch them closely. They're in an enclosed brooder. Chicks are so cute!

Hello Mammy & Myrna,

I watched the original Roots years ago. Enjoy the series!

There's one chick that likes to chirp during it's waking hours. Maybe it's the lookout, LOL

Our cat Jasmine enjoys chick watching but there's no way she can get at them. She blends into the sofa so I doubt they know she's there.

We'll be making a trip out to drop off DS's altered tuxedo slacks. I dropped them to be professionally hemmed and pressed. DS lost 60 pounds and 10 inches from his waist so he wanted to purchase another tuxedo the other was fitting like a clown suit. He sings in the Concert Choir, Church Choir, Festival Choir and Men's Glee Club.

Any exciting plans for the weekend? I'll be moving the chicks into an enclosed building.

Hello Mammy & Myrna,

Mammy is Roots a mini series?

Myrna sorry your DD has to be that way. One day she may wonder why relationships are strained.

We had a wonderful dinner and as I expected we both brought half our meals home so we'll be indulging again tonight.

The telephone rang at 5 a.m. for me to pick up my special delivery at the local post office.
All thirty three chicks made it alive and are doing well. My apologies for the bright red light, it's the heat lamp to keep the chicks warm.

Good morning Mammy and keke. I am not doing much today. Jackie and I had Raph yesterday while DD took Ma'ayan out. I found out DD has been sticking her nose in where it does not belong again and I am besides myself over it. I do not know how to get her to stop meddling. Probably I will not be able to. I feel so sad that I have to work against her to protect my boys from her meddling. She always thinks she is doing the right thing and far from it she is harming them.

Thank you Mammy for the colorful birthday wishes. Glad to hear your meeting went well.

Thank you Myrna. I keep saying "Oh to be 25 again" ha ha

I telephoned the hatchery this morning and my emoticon emoticon emoticon are on their way. They'll arrive tomorrow morning at my local post office. I've contacted the post office and left my telephone number so they can call me when they come in. I'm very excited!

Mammy I hope your meeting went well. Sleeping in curlers doesn't sound very comfortable. I bet your hair looked wonderful.

Happy Valentines Day! emoticon May your sweethearts be kind to you today! I received an e-card from mine. It's also my birthday. Steve and I will be celebrating with a dinner tomorrow evening. Tonight the restaurants will be filled with sweethearts and I'd rather have my celebratory meal in a less crowded and less noisy atmosphere so tomorrow evening would be more enjoyable.

Today I'm going to work on the area for the emoticon emoticon emoticon arriving in a couple of days. I'm excited!

Hello Mammy & Myrna,

My goodness Mammy you had a full day already.

Myrna, chickens can survive for a few days. If I travel to visit friends, Steve takes care of business for me. I usually mix up their feed so all he has to do is scoop and fill up the feeders. He's been filling the water fountains on a regular basis which is a big help. They can be heavy to carry when they're filled.

We lost electricity for four hours today. We went into town to get lunch and hot chocolate. Steve brought in wood to start a fire in the wood stove but when we returned the electricity was restored so he didn't need to build the fire.

Good evening Mammy and Keke. Mammy did the dentist do anything to your teeth? Keke how do the chickens manage while you are away? Does somebody check on them for you.?
Jackie came over this afternoon to collect Raph from school and bring him to me. The school was closed for half term. DD told Jackie that she told me last week he would be off school and they were going out for the day. I am positive she never told me anything, but I am not going to argue about it and Jackie won't either. Keeping silent is always the best option with DD. As far as she is concerned she can never be wrong.

Hello Mammy & Myrna,

Oh my goodness, I thought Gordy was going in for more tests. Sorry he had another attack. Good to hear he is feeling better. Sometimes those attacks might be enough of a scare to stick to a strict food plan.

Mammy your roast sound wonderful and I bet your home smells delightful!

Myrna glad to hear you are well. We'll have to refer to you as the meter stalker, ha ha.

Yesterday I shoveled paths to get to the coops only to find out their heated water fountains were solid frozen. Not a good thing. Chickens can go without heat but not water. Steve figured out the problem, a circuit breaker flipped. We brought all their water fountains in the basement to defrost and filled up the summer fountains so the chickens could have water. They drank like camels. Poor feathered pals.

I found a couple frozen eggs that I tossed into the woods for the wild critters but the other eggs were perfect since there's two chickens that have been sitting on eggs. They want to be mama's but I'm not having that! Maybe in the summer when eggs are plentiful I'll let them sit on a clutch of eggs.

The storm has begun. We'll be leaving for the road trip in a couple hours. Later we're expected to have freezing rain and some will have power outages. I've saved water and we have a wood stove for heating & cooking.

I'm off to bake muffins. Muffins are an easy breakfast with a cup of tea if we are without electricity.

Good morning Mammy and Keke, I am staying warm in bed because it is so cold. I will get up later but I have nothing to hurry for. Keke I am never online late Friday and all of Saturday because it is the Sabbath and I am orthodox Jewish, same for all religious holy days.
Mammy, what happened when Gordi had his hospital apt? is he getting better?
Shame you have to wait for your smart meter, every time I put an appliance on I rush to it to see what it is doing lol. I hope you get yours soon and then you can get as addicted as me lol.
Keke, just imagine me sitting in front of it instead of the TV.

Hello Mammy & Myrna,

Mammy time for a pot of soup! Cold here as well.

Myrna it's been a couple days. Hope you didn't get hit with migraines again.

DS is home for the weekend. Yesterday he helped shovel us out. Unfortunately there's another storm that will be here tomorrow and we'll be driving in bad road conditions to return him back to his university.

I have to dig out the chickens. They're probably getting low on feed and water.

Hello Mammy & Myrna,

Mammy, have a good day in town.

I'm over knee deep in the white stuff (20 inches, .50 meters)

We shoveled and cleared off the vehicles last night. I'm sore today.

I'm retrieving DS for a weekend visit. I'll stop by DD's apartment to say hello.

Heading to the shower then a couple cups of tea before I'm off.

Hello Mammy & Myrna,

You two are a hoot with Vipers boy toy and the closet Narnia, ha ha

I remember those days Viper would have you fixing her computer. How does she function without you Mammy? ha ha

We're having a big white storm today. Expecting 18 inches (.46 meters). That's knee deep for me. We made sure to fill the water fountains and feeders for the chickens so I don't have to roll down the hill, lol

My son called last night from the university and they closed it down for the pending storm so no classes today.

I hear the plow truck clearing our private drive. He'll come back a few times before the storm is over. He's been plowing the drive for 35 years.

I've seen decorative plates for stoves. I wonder why foil would be dangerous. Ahh foil is an insulator and a conductor of heat. That's why he gave you a warning. They don't want to be responsible if you catch the house on fire.

Good morning Myrna and KeKe I heard back about the smart meter I am on the list but it will be some time before they do them here.

I got my new gas cooker 13 years ago and it is still like new. When I use the top I always clean it afterwards when doing the wash up. When I use the oven I also clean that after every use, Gordy thinks I am mad ha ha I never heard of the silver foil thingy

We are going to see viper on the 22nd of this month emoticon

Good morning Mammy and keke, every time I hear the story about viper I have to laugh. I know it was horrible for you when she lived upstairs Mammy, but there were a lot of laughs with what she got up to.
In my old house, I had to climb into a cupboard inside a wardrobe to get to the meter. Shame I never made it to Narnia, so disappointing. Who in their right mind would put a meter there? Whenever engineers came to work on it, they would have a blue fit when they saw where it was situated.
Anyway, I now have my beautiful new smart meter and I am so happy. No more meter reading for me ever again. It works for gas and electric and tells me what I am using and how much I am spending so I can turn things off to save money. I really love it. It is a small box that I can plug in anywhere I like. Mammy, phone them up and see if your area is ready to fit them and you can make an apt.
I always cover my gas hob with foil to keep it clean. I have done it for at least 40 years. Most of my friends also do it. The engineer told me it is a fire hazard. I was shocked I thought foil was very safe. I also buy these foil squares that fit over the rings to keep spills from going on the hob. There are no warnings on them. The engineer wrote out a form that he had warned me about it.
Myrna.

Keke the meter is right on the bottom of the wall in the cupboard and to read it you have to lay down on the floor ha ha

my daughter lives 15 minutes up the road . She has a lovely big old 3 bed house with a large back garden and fish pond and a big front garden.

on my street there are 6 houses one side and 3 houses across then up the other side is 2 flats one above the other then another 2 flats one above the other then 5 houses. It is just a small no through road.
viper used to live in the top flat next to mine, but she has moved long time now. It was great for me that she moved as she got more crabby each month, she is fine now lives 2 hour drive from here she is 78 now and has a 60 year toy boy who lives in the flat next door to her. They spend all day and each night together so she is happy now and no longer crabby lmao

Hello Mammy & Myrna,

It sounds like a wonderful place to live Mammy. I imagined you were on many levels. I thought your daughter and grandchildren lived above you as well as viper. When you mentioned your daughter sent the children down I was thinking it was from another level (down a flight or two of stairs) of the same building. Now I'm guessing it's down the road?

Yes, we have a Smart Meter. We've had it for over five years. It's all radio wave so they don't come here to read the meter anymore. We don't have gas in the home, only electric. In the winter, when the power goes out we have a wood-stove and an outdoor grill.

Mammy you're so funny. How about an alert button for assistance. I've reached under my cupboard and I can't get up, ha ha.

Myrna have not had the meter put in yet, not sure when it is getting done. I will be glad when it is in because when I read my meters I have to get down on the floor in the cupboard and it takes ages to get back up ha ha

The man upstairs has not done the fence yet as the ground is a bit hard but he has all the wood out the back ready to do it.

It is so cold today I had a hot shower to warm up and have my fluffy jammies on

Good morning Mammy and keke, Mammy you have not mentioned the man upstairs recently. Did he fix the fence like he said he would?
I am having a smart meter put in today and I am not quite sure what it does. Eventually everybody is supposed to have one to make things easier for us and the suppliers. have you got yours yet Mammy? How are your gas and electric meters read Keke? Do you do it or does somebody come to your house? A lot of people here have problems, because when some of our homes were built, meters were put in stupid places and they are hard to get to and read.

KeKe there is a place for the washing lines for the two flats and the 2 flats next door it is down by the other 2 flats. In the front I have a little garden and the man upstairs also has a little garden.
Out the back I have a back garden with a side gate there is also another side gate where the man upstairs who has been there a few months can get in and go down to the wash lines. I would imagine he could use the back garden if he wanted. The man who lived there before him never came out the back

Good morning Mammy and keke. keke, it is a standing joke among my kids that I wont let them near my kindle or my Amazon account because of my book choices lol. As long as they think they know what I am reading but do not actually "know" what I am reading I can pretend I am not reading what I am reading. "BLUSH"

Hello Mammy & Myrna,

Hope you have a good week.

Yes, you've been together with Gordy for a while now. A friendship/courtship that's healthy for the both of you. I'm glad you have that connection. Mammy do you reside on the ground level?

Myrna, You've already tried to work on fixing the issue so maybe it's time to have you DS have a look at the kindle. I hope it works out and you don't need to purchase another. Sorry to hear of your on-going migraines.

Good morning Mammy and keke, I spoke too soon and had another migraine through the night. I guess I am having a cluster. I am making the most of the few hours I feel better, to catch up on things.
I should have kept quiet about techi things because I am having nightmares with downloading my books. Even tech support is stumped! I hope it gets fixed soon because a new kindle with a large screen and memory is very expensive and I cant really afford one. When I first started using one my eyesight was good enough to use a small one. I need a bigger one now because the small one with enlarged print only gets a few lines to the page which is difficult when reading a book. Till it is fixed I am reading them on my chrome book.

Hello Mammy & Myrna,

Mammy you take good care of Gordy. He's lucky to have a caring woman like you. I'm sure he offers good companionship in return.

Myrna good to see you back again and have recovered from your migraine. I get flustered sometimes with the computer too and my youngest DS fixes it for me. It's sometimes just easier to ask him to fix it rather than to teach me how. It takes 2 minutes for him to fix the problem but it takes an hour to explain it.

Myrna I use to free range the chickens until two disappeared. One day I will again.
Good detective work. emoticon
I agree about your best cure for everything! emoticon

Good afternoon Mammy and keke, I have been laid up with a raging migraine. I even missed my Daniel yesterday when he came to visit. I must have been asleep because when I got up Michael said he had been and gone. My head was so mixed up I then went straight back to bed and to sleep. I tried to get up this morning but I had the shakes so I went back to sleep. I feel much better now.
Michael went home first thing and he will be back in a couple of weeks. He was not in the best of moods because work was difficult. I just try to keep out of his way, he is not like DD he never loses his temper with me. His problems are never with me just what is going on with his life and work.

Keke I am getting a really interesting look at the life of chickens. I did not now anything about them and it is fascinating. I am afraid to ask if they are allowed to roam free outside. If they are then please tell me, if not then ignore my question.
Mammy, you succumbed to our talk about apple pie and ice cream and could not resist lol.

I wondered when Viper would turn up again, it has been a while since she has needed help. Her chap must be no good at techi stuff and could not fix her problem.

When I get stuck I have 2 choices, both are bad. Michael, he gives me a lecture for not knowing how to do it, and why don't I know how to do it, and why don't I learn how to do it. Then he shows me and watches me do it and I am so nervous I mess it up! Then he does it for me and I forget what he did right away because I am so relieved he did it. I run away and hide. Then there is the disaster of DD! need I say more!!!!!!

I am going to go and get myself a nice cup of tea, the best cure for everything. Greenie is still not on FB but Bee is playing games non stop. lol.

Am I a SPY or just nosey, I think I prefer to be just concerned with a trace of spy and nosey lol.

Myrna.

Hello Mammy

Myrna & Bee I hope you are well.

Mammy your meal sounds delicious! I'm salivating. Oh how I would love to see the ground and pull a few weeds. Right now it's about 4 inches of white on the ground.

I wore my new spikes on my farm boots this morning (manufacturer pic below). They worked out well.

I wish that I had purchased these years ago. Would have prevented me from falling down that hill and hurting my back. The only negative was when I entered the coops and the hay got stuck around the spikes. I walked through the snow in between entering the next unit(s). I also had to be mindful where I stepped as I didn't want to puncture a chicken.

Mammy, Looks like you're still coming to the rescue of the woman in your building. You sure have helped her out of some difficult times, LOL

Hello Mammy & Myrna,

You're a tease with that dessert Mammy! Enjoy your visit with Gordy.

Myrna, can you have spelt bread? Some people with wheat sensitivity can have spelt flour. I was able to have it without issue. That's nice you had extra time with your grandson.

We currently have 17 chickens, two regular size and 15 bantams. In two weeks there will be double that amount.

There's only one hen house that needs a complete cleaning in the winter. It's small and two regular size chickens sleep there. Where their roosts are is where they perch at night and where they perch they defecate so that's why it needs cleaning often. In the winter it takes twice as long to clean due to everything freezing. I use a metal shovel/spade to free it up. What takes me 15-20 minutes in the spring/summer/autumn takes me 30-45 min in the winter.

The other coops have bantam Silkie chickens and they don't typically perch so I give them fresh shavings on top and they scratch it around. In the spring those coops will get cleaned out completely.

The building that will house the little chicks that will arrive soon has heat (brooder) lamps (the others houses do not). Chickens do not need heat to survive. The breeds we have are feather footed (and cold hearty) with the exception of four chickens and they are doing well since they had time to acclimate themselves to the cold since last autumn. The two chicks that hatched in December have to be in the building with a heat lamp or they will die but they will get moved down the hill in the spring with the other Silkie Chickens and next fall they will acclimate themselves as the others have.

All the poultry units have heated water fountains otherwise their drinking water would freeze. They drink lots of water.

That's a lot of poultry education, LOL

Good morning Mammy and Keke. It must be a very big job cleaning out the hen houses. How many do you have and how long does it take? Do you have to heat them in winter? Are chickens very hardy? can they withstand very cold temperatures.?
I had Raph an extra afternoon yesterday because DD had to go to a funeral. He looked very pale but he seemed ok. Michael was working at home and taking conference calls. He kept scooting off into his room so it would be quiet. made a change from me hiding in my room all day lol.
Keke I have to check everything I eat for gluten and wheat. Plus I have a list of exclusions because of Hypothyroid and some other things. I am falling apart lol. The Joys of aging.

At home I like custard on my puddings, when I am out I like icecream. I love the indian ice cream Kulfi and their desert Shrikhand. There sweets are a killer for weight, smell them and you put on 5 pounds!

Hello Mammy & Myrna,

Oh yes, pie and ice cream are a favorite too! Delicious ~ scrambled eggs with mushrooms. I'm salivating over here, ha ha I made a stir fry last night that had mushrooms.

Myrna I hope you recovered from the traumatic day with your grandson. It's not easy to see those we love be emotionally injured.

I didn't get to all the eggs in time. Two of them were frozen and split. I threw those into the woods for the wild critters to eat. It was difficult cleaning the hen house as it was frozen but I managed. I feel better they have a clean house for a couple weeks. The other houses I added more shavings and hay.

The new bantam chicks are arriving mid February so I'm slowly setting up their home. They'll be indoors (with heat lamps) til the spring. This breed originated from the county of Cornwall in England. They are called Cornish or Game Hens.

Hello Mammy & Myrna.

It breaks my heart to hear of bullying on the playground. Are there not aides on the grounds to supervise and stop the teasing? That's traumatic for a 6 year old.

I've never thought of serving custard over apple pie. We use a whipped top. Yes, egg custard does taste of egg but that's the main ingredient. Myrna do you not eat egg at all? I must be careful of the box powders as some have gluten which I have a sensitivity to.

Mammy, what are you preparing for Gordy today? I'm sure it's something delicious.

I'm headed back down the hill to feed and replenish hay and shavings for the poultry. It's a very cold morning and there's a good probability that there will be flurries.

Good afternoon Mammy and keke, Raph was very miserable yesterday, he had some trouble in the playground with rough kids and bullies. He is only 6 and got hit in the head with a football. The older kids made fun of him. he got knocked down twice. Being partially sighted he is very vulnerable. He was so upset with being ridiculed by the older kids, I dont think he has ever been tormented before. When my sister collected him she was not expecting to find him like that so she was tearful by the time she got to me. So both of them were in a state and Raph wanted to talk to his mum so I phoned her. Guess who was told to cool it and take his mind of it? DD strikes again lol.
Changing the subject, DD's father used to love those egg custards and I often made them for him. They may not look like scrambled egg but however they are made they still taste just like eggs to me. I like my custard made with powder and tasting like custard and poured over apple pie YUM!

Hello Mammy & Myrna,

Mammy you're a good cook. Watch YouTube instructional videos and you'll be making a top-notch quiche in no time. Eggs are plentiful here so when the eggs are accumulating quiche is a good way to use them.

I've been watching YouTube videos on how to make egg custard. I'm going to give that a try soon. I've been reluctant as I don't want to end up with scramble eggs. The key is to keep that whisk moving and slowly add them in. They're only eggs so if it doesn't turn out, it's okay.

Myrna do you enjoy cooking? Enjoy the visit with Michael, Raph and DD.
