This is Scout, our rapidly growing baby Eastern Painted Box Turtle. We are actually owned by three resident rescue turtles, and lucky enough to share our property with a colorful wild turtle population of several different species.
We’ll be sharing more from our walks on the wild side. Scout just had to be the first one here – it’s simply how she is. :o)
These recipes from one of our favorite magazines are simple yet sublime. They also look to be easy enough for Peg to handle, and we do have a slow cooker. We therefore decided to post them here not only to share, but to make sure Peg can quickly find them again. :o)
From the Realtor news wire come this heads up on the dwindling availability of USDA loans for rural homebuyers in the fiscal year 2016:
The article does point out at least one other option, and for folks who aren’t going to be needing a loan during this fiscal cycle there’s no need for a stampede of panic. However, if you’re planning a transaction soon that may involve USDA funding not yet secured, don’t count those chickens before they’re hatched.
