A few thoughts

Posts have been few and far between recently. Number One daughter made a surprise visit home this weekend as she won't be home for Easter this year. We were very happy to have her, but two of the children cried themselves to sleep last night because her visit was so short. She had her first taste of home-grown chicken. We cooked it in the crockpot in white wine and ... - (suggested by Alicia at Fructus Ventris - thanks Alicia). It was enjoyed by all. While home she also helped us start the flower garden for the year. On Saturday we spent a couple hours hiking in the Sandhills National Wildlife Refuge. (Only wildlife seen were children, mosquitoes, and one unidentifiable snake.) Number One daughter commented on Sunday that life was very tiring on the homefront.

While I haven't studied this site yet, I saw it referenced at Openbook. Some readers may be aware from this post in January that I have had keen interest in the Shroud of Turin. So I will be looking into soon.

From the small holding in Bethune ...

Oremus pro invicem!

glad to hear the rooster cooked up well. I have a recipe up today for salmon/scallops, but living as far inland as you do it probably wouldn't be of much use!
It is hard for parents when the children leave home. Ours are in Memphis TN, Los Angeles CA, Eugene OR and Post Falls ID. Not an easy trip to go see all of them, and we haven't actually all been together at the same time since my father-in-law's funeral.
