Seems like this page has turned into more of an 'announcement' type page to give it a true purpose in life and help keep the main page a bit cleaner... ;-)
No news... Is that good news?
The Kanatsiohareke site has been updated with a new Events and Announcements page and information about workshops and the 2001 Summer Festival. Be sure to check it out!
We just found out that the donation information we steered people to for Kanatsihareke was wrong. If you would like to send donations to Kanatsiohareke, please see that section of our site for the correct information.
We updated the link to BackWoodsMan magazine's website. This is a great magazine and I apologize for not keeping up on their link...
We've got a new story in the works about our Porch Eagle! And it's a real true story too! This is Mama'a first story on the site. It's here, and it's true and it's funny. It's also lucky that no-one else was there at the time ;-)
First, Yahoo takes over the web rings so their life span is now in question. Or at least their use and feasibility... And now Netmind wants money in order for web sites like ours to use their registration service. And I'll bet you can guess how much we're willin to pay for their 'service' too? Another good thing down the tubes of financial greed... So the option to register to be notified when our pages change probably doesn't work any more. I'll be looking into this soon. But I won't be paying them anything... Just checking if it works and removing it from the site if it doesn't!
And we have to apologize for not keep the site updated as much as we would like. Things have been pretty hectic around here and on top of that, I "upgraded" to Adobe GoLive 5.0 for the site maintenance. It's a slow, buggy, big hog of a poorly designed piece of software that was totally unusable until my new monitor and memory arrived to give me 1280X1024 resolution. I can't believe Abode made this junk, or that I paid for it.... But at least things are workable now, except for the crashes... But I do have to run windows to be able to run Golive, so crashes are expected...
We just added some Winter Scenes to the Photo's page. Although it's a busy time for some things, out in the back it's pretty quiet, unless we're plowing snow ;-)
We've just added a Games
section to Fiasco Farms. Nothing great, just some things to waste a
few spare minutes. We have Tic-Tac-Toe, a basic 3-D maze to navigate,
a version of the old Magic 8-Ball to answer your most important questions
and a few Cows to listen to. A note to 'careful' users. All these games
use Java-script. If you have Java-script turned off, they won't work.
If you get a message asking you if it's okay to run these scripts, say
'Okay'. They are completely safe! The source code to these games is
freely available to anyone interested. And if you know of any other
games you'd like to see here, let us know!
We're right in the middle of planting our gardens and doing the farm work. Getting this done between moon phases and rain drops is a trick in itself. Not to mention keeping the old Ferguson tractor going, learning the personality of the new (1954) Ford plow and hoping we don't lose any more bolts or disks on the harrow. But it is comforting to know that our field is still producing a fine crop of rocks!... And for some odd reason, we started rebuilding the front porch on our house at the same time... So we're a little short of time. But we're still discussing new things for the web site, including pictures and stories. And as always, if anyone has any suggestions or questions, we'd sure like to hear them!
By the way, does anyone know what you do when you pop a big rock (about one and a half foot across) out of the field. Then find out the rock is pretty much round. Then discover that big round rocks tend to roll down hill like a mean bowling ball on a mission of destruction. Then realize that your house is at the bottom of the hill??? Well I'll tell ya... The best thing to do is to set right down, smile, and thank the Creator that you just tried out that big new plow that makes big deep furrows that tend to stop big round rolling rocks before they make a new door in your house!!! ;-)
We already have a mailing list and message board where people can exchange ideas, recipes, stories and whatever else. So join the list, send some of your favorite recipes or ask for something you'd like! Remember, the mailing list is for everyone to join in on and exchange recipes and cooking tips. The message boards are a public bulletin board to exchange ideas, recipes, tips, stories or whatever. Everyone can read messages posted there and reply to them. Great for asking questions, making suggestions or just starting a conversation.
If you'd like to see something here or have any suggestions for us, please send them along! We have an information return form that helps make things a bit automatic, or you can use e-mail to Mama or Papa.
On this web site, we will be expanding to include our own recipes,
stories of the Fiasco Family, other stories, pictures, and all round
You used to be able to enter your e-mail address at the bottom of this page (and hit the "Mind-It" [click here] button) to be notified when this page has been updated. But no longer. The NetMind "service", which was a great free service for years has now decided to charge. And I mean charge! $80.00 a month! Forget it! There's free program add-ons that do the same. Their advertisement riddled "service" is certainly not worth the money!
