Loose Ends

Since I don't budget the time to respond to all the comments here, I often leave unanswered questions. That bothers me. It seems pretty rude to just ignore people like that, so tonight I will attempt to tidy up a few loose ends.

Hi! Question from the uneducated swede: What is 4-H? - Julia in Sweden

From Wikipedia:
4-H in the United States is a youth organization with the mission of "engaging youth to reach their fullest potential while advancing the field of youth development." The four "H"s stand for Head, Heart, Hands, and Health. The organization serves over 6.5 million members in the United States from ages 5 to 19 in approximately 90,000 clubs. Though typically thought of as an agriculturally focused organization as a result of its history, 4-H today focuses on citizenship, healthy living, and science, engineering and technology programs.

4-H is great! As a 4-H mom, at least you'll have the wide resources of your blog readers at your fingertips. Need a quick idea? Ask us... we'll help! - Dawn

Oh, you're going to regret that offer. I'm in need of many ideas. . . like what in the world is a Cloverbud supposed to take to the fair? How do you prevent your kids from waiting until the last possible second to do their projects? How do you potty train a very, very strong-willed two-year-old? (You didn't specify whether or not it had to be 4-H related!)

So, you don't use horses to gather cows either? We just use a feed truck and 4-wheelers, too. But I think doing it on horseback again would be fun. I miss that. - Jenny

Actually, we use both. There are some places where we pasture cows that we just can't access with anything but a horse, and there are some instances when a four-wheeler is more helpful.

I know I missed more questions along the way, so if you have been ignored and would like to ask again, please feel free. I will actually answer this time.

And here's my question of the day for you: What is your favorite blog or website?

After our own
I really like

Oh, and of course yours.

That's tough. At least today, I'd say like blogs which tell me how other people live and societies work, and Dirk Beauregard is a Brit living and teaching in France, so I get two for one. He's occasionally gross and never spell checks but he's interesting. My opinion may change tomorrow.

(BTW, you actually "budget" your time?)

I like Pioneer woman and yours. Ya'll update nearly every day and its fun to read. I'm lucky if I do a post a week, but I don't have much to write about. At least not much that would interest anyone.

Prairie Chick said...

Confessions of a Pioneer Woman
One Thing
Holy Experience

Not necessarily in that order, and each for unique reasons.

1. A pig?
2. Don't make them do the project... but make sure they suffer the consequences and humiliation of THEIR decision to not do it.
3. Bribery.

Whew! Three in one night. I'm exhausted.

Wait, one more:
Yours, Pioneer Woman, Prairie Prologue, For the Love of Sam, We are THAT Family

I'm a new comer to yours and it is high on the list.
Others include:
Queen B
Sgt. and Mrs. Hub
of course, the Pioneer Woman (I teach her oldest on Fridays)
and Rocks in my Dryer.
Yep, that about covers 1/8 the blogs I visit in the evenings.
