This Spring’s Guests

Only those who have known me for a while know my educational background.  I was a late bloomer.  I did not get my 4 year degree in business (from Meredith College in Raleigh, NC with a great study abroad program here in Italy)  until I was 40 years old.  After that I went on to get a 2 year degree in hotel and restaurant management (from Northern Virginia Community College) and then went on to get a Master’s level certificate in Event Management (from The George Washington University).  Throughout much of my adult life I spent a good bit on money on tuition and books and fees and all that.   And I did work in the hospitality industry.  I spent my time in kitchens and in an office selling catering and in classrooms teaching catering. 313 more words

Our first coop

We decided to get a smaller, kit coop to start with.  We will use it for juvenile chicks, sick home, and to have the ability to move it into the garage if a hurricane or other big storm comes. 123 more words
