Thoughts from Kelln

Random Tuesday

Posted on January 21, 2020

I couldn’t sleep this morning.  2:30 am and wide awake.  This led me to clicking on book face.  I saw some post about Kalahari red goats.  I’ve hear of em before.  Knew just a bit about their background and have seen a few in Texas.  I googled a couple of websites and read one with a lot of info about the Kalahari red goat.  The contact name on the site was Tollie Jordaan.  I hadn’t heard

Food Problems

Posted on January 20, 2020

For thousands of years, man subsisted on meat, bread, fruit and veggies.  Today, they want to make meat out of veggies, fruits and chemicals.  We need gluten free items on every menu.  Lactose intolerance is an issue.  GMO free, no hormones, no antibiotics, etc. You can find pasta made from wheat flour that is advertised as NON-GMO.  Triscuits are made from wheat. They are advertised as NON-GMO.  Seriously?   There is not any GMO wheat,

Anybody that knows me quickly realizes that my life is a book best written with musical notes.  I can read music but I can’t write it.  No matter what, when or where, I know a good tune as soon as I hear it.  Pop, rock, country,rap… whatever the genre, I like good tunes. My life calendar is made up of wicked tunes and when I hear those songs today, I am immediately taken back to

Disclaimer (I wrote this on Thursday, Jan. 16 but the ice affected the shitty internet, therefore it didn’t post until Friday evening the 17th)  Modern technology. I ran errands in Woodward and then went to a district stock show meeting.  It was starting to ice when I went into the meeting and it was a bit worse when I left.  But once I got off the highways, the paved side roads were wicked slick.  And

This Australian wild brush fire situation is not a good deal. I know that they are getting rain in some places but more is needed.  Millions of acres burned, thousands of homes and countless number of animals killed, injured and now facing starvation.  Sure, there has been air drops of carrots and sweet potatoes but that is only going to go so far. The Koala population was already in decline.  There have been thousands of

Big Fun

Posted on January 14, 2020

I enjoyed watching the pageantry and the national anthem of the pre game for the college football playoff.  I like the military presenting the flags.  I liked the Trumpster and the first lady walking out with the ROTC units.  I loved the USA chants when they walked onto the field.  I really liked listening to the LSU coach talk in the interview.  Always reminds me of the Waterboy.  Thus far into the game, it looks

It’s the start of another week.  There was a weekend but no days off.  The next couple of months will just blend together into a long stretch of looking at critters, adjusting feed, practicing showmanship, trimming hooves, weighing, clipping does & calves, shearing wether sheep & goats and filling out entry cards.  But there is a highlight to this year.  I don’t have a kid showing.  So, I don’t have to buy additives, hair care

Zip Code

Posted on January 06, 2020

No matter the zip code, every school group has the same issue to deal with, and that issue would be fund raisers. It doesn’t matter what zip code you live in, roughly 10% of the group will do 90% of the work.  There is always a few behind the scenes that are planning, coordinating and ram-rodding the entire effort.  I’ve taught at schools in 4 different zip codes and dealt with ag fund raisers in

The Best Ever

Posted on January 05, 2020

Let’s get right to this list of 1.  Yes, the one and only one.  UNO.  There is no #13 or a 4A and 4 b.  Just 1.  That’s it.   I don’t ever pay money for this.  But, I like the stuff.  I’ve had the name brand stuff before but it pales in comparison.  My dad makes a really good mix but it isn’t the best.   Without a doubt, there is no other, the

New Year

Posted on January 03, 2020

Tme.  I don’t have much time for this right now.  Breeding goats, feeding critters and running a concession stand at a pig show.  I’m not very smart.   Had a great trip to Phoenix with the Isbell and Ferguson families.  Brooke Ferguson won class 3 with a goat from me and was 2nd in class behind the reserve grand.  Julie Isbell won a class and was res. div. 3.  Great families that work hard, have
