The weather is cold and wet here, I dread the thought of just getting out of bed, let alone actually leaving the house, or even doing something.

Share the post “Preparing your Rabbits for Lean Times”


I was fortunate to run into Aaron of the InTheRabbitHole Podcast Monday night in a group meeting, and of course the subject of rabbits was talked about for quite a long time. One of the subjects we discussed was what to do in the event that the […]

Guns or Butter?

Share the post “Guns or Butter?”


With the current news, I thought it would be a timely topic to write about guns vs. butter.
From Wikipedia:
