Some Up Dates On Our Links List

Just wanted to make a mention of some additions to the links list on the right side bar here.

We added John Mesko's
Lighthouse Farm website where he and his family advertise their farm. But, it is far more than just a website it is a valuable resource as well for anyone interested in the benefits of real food and the philosophy behind it. Check out their pod casts and Agrarian articles.

Also, John Mesko( Good Farmer John) is now writing over at Northern Farmer where he recently made a thoughtful post entitled Authentic Agriculture: Defined. He address' the issue of how words like "organic" and "natural" have gotten hijacked by the corporate giants and the USDA. John explores the idea of coming up with a new "word" which would not be so easy to be taken over. John says," I say let’s coin our own word, define it first, and lay claim to it before anyone else does. I put forth “Authentic Agriculture.” Authentic means “made or done in the original, traditional way, or in a way that faithfully resembles an original.”

We know quite a few of home schooling families as well as being a home schooling family ourselves. Some of the kids we know including two of our own have gone on to graduate and have now begun to live out their adult lives. Most folks we know have even less confidence in the higher educational institutions than in the public school system and often discuss "what next" for our kids who want to pursue further learning. Well, now there is what appears to be a fine alternative through the Biblical Concourse of Home Universities listed as Home Schooling Through College over on the right side bar. I highly recommend checking it out for those of you who are serious about your child’s continuing education.

Most folks who frequent the agrarian blogs are quite familiar with Tom Scepaniak’s writings over at Northern Farmer. He has another blog called Healing Waters which has more of a spiritual focus. It's still written in his same enjoyable down to earth style but with a bigger emphasis on Faith. "Simple country faith from a simple country farm family" .
I for one always enjoy Toms perspective on spiritual matters and this blog is definitely one to go to for that.

And last but certainly not least. I had lost track of PJ (Pastor Josh)when he changed his blog address and I recently found him again, so you will see his updated link which will take you to his 'In God We Trust' blog site. I always enjoy his perspective on spiritual matters as well.

Also we changed our email address after getting high speed internet, which you can see if you click on the "Email Me Here" link under the photo of our log cabin.

Guess that's about it as far as updates go.

Until Next Time

Your welcome Lynn.

Herrick Kimball had made a note of it on his blog. That's how I first heard of it.

I've enjoyed seeing Jim on the video's I got from Steve and I figured if you folks had anything to do with it then it would be a great resource. I haven't had a chance to explore the site in depth yet but plan to soon.

May the Lord bless you and prosper you in what you are doing.
