Friend Shana, who can read the writing on the wall, is doing a bigger garden than usual, this year and she says she’ll be canning more fruits and vegetables, too.

Writes Shana:

Please thank your readers from me for buying bumperstickers & T shirts & rosary bracelets, which funded our project! We got 14 laying hens, and the hatchery sent (free) 9 cockerals for warmth in travel. We have named the males: “Pot Pie” “Fryer” “KFC” “Broiler” “Fricassee” “Noodle Soup” “Chicken Salad” “A la King” and “Coque au Vin”

I understand a silv’ry, short-legged chick is named after me!

Remaking America. Michelle Obama did promise, after all, that we’d never go back to being the way we were.
