First person to correctly guess what this is all about gets a "Ben in the fog" postcard.  Good luck - this one is really tricky.  68,79,33,0,W

too windy...

Too windy today to get much of anything accomplished.  High sustained winds at 47 mph with a max gust of 58 mph.  Also makes for a bad hair day... 56,71,54, .01",G(usty)

a friday night film

 Visit to GOAT TOWN - located on Stolt Packsaddle Mountain Ranch. That is Packsaddle Mountain in the background. The owner just started this goat farm a couple of months ago and lost a few while trying to get things figured out. I recently stumbled on the opportunity to be a ranch manager of sorts. It has been 2 years since I've seen the owner and I just happened to pass by when he was going in the gate a few weeks ago. For now, my job is to feed and check them daily and truck in feed twice a month - and help stabilize a healthy fertile herd that is self sustaining.   Brownie has gotten his head stuck in the fence 7 times now - kids will be kids.  News Theme by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (

rotten wires

Been having some internet issues over the past week...keep losing my connection.  Was beginning to think that maybe my modem was overheating with my computer, weather station, and weather cam plugged into it.  Today it got really bad and my phone had a lot of static...which gave me a clue.  Checked my wire connection outside and sure enough it was in bad shape.  Leaving it exposed to the elements for so long really took a toll.  Had to peel it all back and reconnect some fresh wire - problem solved.  I think I will put a little connector box on my next shopping list.  Chupa was right there to make sure I did it right.  60,72,29,0,W

It was a lot easier getting them on the trailer than it was getting them off.  56,64,33,0,B
