Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

Old enough to be eccentric, but not rich enough

Gems of Wisdom

You’re not God’s judge. One day you’ll discover it’s the other way around
“Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a gameof Solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed.”  
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
If you substitute " Being a Christian" for "Riding a Horse" Ralph would have hit the nail right on the head!

If only you could sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet; how important you can be to people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person.
-Fred Rogers

A rich man is one who is content with what he has.-Old Jewish Proverb

As my neighbour once said
"Every bull has one bad day a year. You just don't know what day it's going to be"

"In the druidical religion of liberalism, not separating your recyclables is a sin, but abortion is just a medical procedure."
-Ann Coulter

Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself.
Harvey Fierstein

“Our economy is based on spending billions to persuade people that happiness is buying things, and then insisting that the only way to have a viable economy is to make things for people to buy so they’ll have jobs and get enough money to buy things.” – Philip Elliot Slater

"The lie can be maintained only for such time as the state can shield the people from the political, economic and military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the state to use all of it's powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth becomes the greatest enemy of the state." - Joseph Goebbles.
