Hither and Yon and Back Again

Yesterday I took a drive to Monticello, KY, about a 20 minute drive from here. It's a pretty drive. It was cool yesterday and cloudy. I had to put on a sweater when I was outside the car! It has been feeling more like fall, with lows in the 40's at night. Here is one field of soybeans that I drove past. I see the date on my camera is wrong, so ignore that! Trust me, I KNOW I took this photo yesterday!!
You can click on it to make it bigger. I love that view.








On the way back I stopped by a home where they sell country eggs.
Can you tell which one is the country egg and which one I got from the grocery?




Afternoon nap time for Skittles!! He barely fits in there!



My computer still has issues. It says it is working with limited functionality. It ain't lying either! I can still use it, but it will log off right in the middle of things. I can't shut it down properly. I guess I better call my computer guy again.
I found this quote which I think applies to my computer!
"The only truly secure computer is one buried in concrete, with the power turned off and the network cable cut." Unknown
I guess that applies to all our computers!!
Hope everyone is having a dandy week!!

Your drive sounds nice. I'm sure it was lovely.
Out temps are cooling lately too, and the days have been warm and mild.
The leaves will soon be turning colors, and then winter will come. Oh poo! I don't want winter to come. I love autumn WAY better!
Hello, Skittles!

Your Skittles kitty is so cute - just being a cat! Lovely drive there in Kentucky - beautiful country!

Lots of soybeans here too. Won't be long before the combines and cotton pickers are in the fields, hopefully. Weather permitting.

It's storming here right now, nothing too severe yet though. Look out, it's heading your way!

Egg on the left with the dark golden yolk is the home grown one. I get them from a neighbor and they're so much richer and taste much better than store bought eggs.

Skittles is a gorgeous kitty. He looks so relaxed there. ;o)

Happy rest of your week!

Love and hugs,

Diane

The egg on the left! Oh I love our chickens and all the free range chicken eggs we can eat! I don't think I could ever go back to store bought.

Soybeans here are turning golden now. And they are burning the tomato plants even tho they still have millions of tomatoes on them. sigh.
Found your post on Fast Food very interesting... Have read some of that in other places, but I don't remember where. I am on a seriously restricted diet as part of my Lyme's disease treatment. It limits me to free range chicken and bison.
Regular "store bought" meat has too many antibiotics and growth hormones in it and may be why our kids are so sick and do not respond to medicines anymore or have allergic reactions to medicines AND little kids are maturing sexually earlier and earlier from all the growth hormones. When I quit teaching a couple years back, I had 2nd grade girls needing bras and other things we didn't need until middle school! If you asked those girls they told that they ate mostly fast food, mama was too busy to cook. Right.
And have you ever read about the side effects of MSG and what all it is in? Let that be your next research project.

The egg on the right is the store bought egg. I LOVE the big brown fresh eggs straight from the nest! The farm picture is nice too! And the cat....so sweet.

Great picture Rachel. If all the scenery is like that it has to be a beautiful drive.
Egg on the left is the country egg. The one on the right is from the grocery store (all of ours look like that - you know, hardly any flavor)

LOL, LOL...LOVE that quote, Rachel and I think you are right--IT DOES apply to all our computers...!
Skittles is such a pretty Cat....In fact, BEAUTIFUL!

Was it the egg on the left??

Yes, Autumn has arrived. Trees are turning and temps are dropping. We actually had a freeze warning the other night.. BRRR! Time to bring out the heavy blanket.
It's been a long time but I do remember having some fresh eggs and they really were better than store bought. I stopped not too long ago at a local farm, advertising with a small cardboard sign "fresh eggs", but I just couldn't quite bring myself to pay what they were asking. Yes they are better but for the cost I'll have to stick with store eggs.

I knew your egg right away! You are getting to be a health nut, huh?
I knew as soon as I read your previous post that if Cliff saw he would pitch a fit. And you did see those feed lots last year when you were up. Not so bad, really, were they?

You had a pretty drive this week. I think of you and your part of Ky when I read or hear about that school teacher who was doing census work. How far away was that from you?

You Skittles is looking good. Cats like to take Kat Knaps. And eat Cat Nip. Only ours didn't, does yours?

So the only really good computer is a dead and burried one? I keep hoping for them, the alive ones. :-)

I love that photo of the fields and clicking on it made all the difference!

Love your kitty, too.

I want to know what a country egg tastes like. I figure it's the egg on the left because the one on the right looks like every egg I've ever cracked.

Being a blogger, I can understand the frustration in having computer issues. Hope you get everything sorted out soon!!
