Here's a little bit more about Heifer.
This page shows a interactive map of the many countries around the world that Heifer has projects.
One of the benefits of being a Heifer employee is that we get to travel to our project countries. These trips are called Study Tours, they are like an educational vacation. This is something that non-employees can also take part in.
I wanted to share some of my r/l with my friends. This is a interesting live Construction web cam at my work. I work at heifer International World Headquarters. Our mission is to End Hunger, Poverty and care for the earth! We are in the process of building a cool education center. Our hope is to educate people here i...Read more
Well, today I sold my 'baby bike'.
This nice couple from Missouri came down and bought it. A friend of mine was in N.W. Arkansas the on Friday and happened to overhear a lady saying that she wanted to get a bike but wanted to start small, she said that she had looked at a Rebel and liked it. He went over and told her about mine. He called me and then me and the lady talked. I had a very...Read more
Ok - I admit this is a filler blog. I only have about 10 minutes before I have to get busy here at work!
I can't believe I havent blogged for a month!
I will definately have something to blog about tonight. I'm going to buy a new - to me - motorcycle! A friend of mine is selling his to get a bigger one. So I'm buying his. A beautiful silver Honda Shadow VLX 600. I'll take some pictures of it this evening and tomorrow (if it's not pouring rain as predicted) and post them along with a nice blog.
I was picked by JRS!

Well, JRS showed how to make a quilt.
The closest thing to sewing I usually do is to put the logo on our uniforms for TKD.
I've got a great little embroidery machine.
I found this great little box at a little hole in the wall store downtown. It's the kind of shop that is chock-full of odds-n-ins that seem out of place. It's not exactly a second hand store and not exactly a flea market. The people that run it just travel around and buy thing from all sorts of venues and bring it back to their store.
It's located in an old part of town that is being rejuvenated, so its the up-and-coming area right now.
Well about the box...
It's about 8 inches wide, 4 inches deep a...Read more
A Day at Heifer Ranch
Today I took my new boss to Heifer's Ranch. It's only about 45 minutes away from our Headquarters building downtown.
I was a little worried about the weather, it was raining when I left for work. I knew it wouldn't be to much fun to be on an outdoor 'adventure' on a yucky rainy cold day.
By the time we headed out, 9am, the rain had stopped but it was gloomy downtown. As we drove the clouds were moving pretty quickly - back toward town! Yeah! The sun started poking its head out about...Read more
Tony Jaa has a birthday soon. February 5th!
(Just 4 days after mine!)
I decided that I would send him a gift. I made a bracelet for him, and a neat little box to put it in.
Here are some pix of my gift for TJ.
(Hope you like it) Yes. I really did make this, and my daughter helped.
Well, ok so maybe not actually a member of my family but when I saw this little guy I couldn't pass him up!
I was on my way to lunch and had to stop by the Hallmark store to pick up a card for a co-worker.
Between the Hallmark store and the restaurant there just happens to be a Tuesday Mornings store. This is a nifty little store where you can find all kinds of stuff, from dog bowls to luggage, from sheets to garden gnomes- they have all kinds of junk crammed in this little shop!
As I walked from the ca...Read more
