On 01.02.02, I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. Too late for surgery, I had chemotherapy, which failed. In May the chemotherapy was changed and I was soon in remission which was celebrated and welcome and lasted nine years - until October 2011. There was progression in 2011 so more treatment was indicated and I am now back in partial remission. But I'm not only a cancer patient - I also enjoy my family, walk my dogs and am learning to draw and paint. Life is good!

Chicken farmer

Chickens don't really like to have their photos taken, that's my conclusion. As soon as I start poking the camera in their direction they start looking down or turning their backs or kicking up dust. Before my arrival they were picture perfect. But here's a Rhode Island Red and a Golden Lace Wyandotte, I got that far.

And here's the larger coop that sits empty because I haven't built the run yet and I'm afraid a hawk, the neighbor's cat or our own dogs would eat them up if they were totally free-range during the day.

I'm quite fond of the coop. It was built for me as a gift. You can't tell from this photo, but the rungs on the stairs are painted with shiny gold paint!
