Last week or so there was a lot of discussion about "non country topics being posted on the board, well all i have to say is *get over it* when anyone has a question or concern you folks are right there in a matter of a few minutes. This board is the best, keep it up.

kraig WY Donna you need to    Posted 12-04-2002 at 17:05:17       [Reply]  [No Email]
lite'n up and quit letting some of these people get to you. I may not post much but I enjoy reading the hummerest converations regardless wheather they are OT or not. This is like the other (YT) boards. No mater what you say somebody's gonna get grumpy. Ask Mark (Willy-N), Dell WA and others on the N-board. Someone ask a question, these two are knowlegable, but when they answer there is always someone who makes a smart remark. Do just like they do, ignore the remarks and carryon like they hadn't even posted. In closing, welcome back and keep your since of humor.

I have never in my all of my country life, ever met any country folk who just hung around talkin' nothin' but country! Cripes!
Grin! Good to see y'all rally together again. It sure got quiet around here for awhile. I missed all the bantering, teasing and general conversation. This is a great board no matter what some others might think.

where I can visit w/country people and those who
long for it. I have gotten the best advice here
from country topics A-Z, and even personal advice--just like in my growing up days--except it came
from gramps, grams, aunts, uncles, cuzins, neighbors, great-aunts, etc. If we look to the
top of the page--it says "and Community"

i,ll second that    Posted 12-04-2002 at 12:55:14       [Reply]  [No Email]
amen thanks for the nice post

I agree with you Donna If you don't like it here
Why stay around There's lots of other places to go . I don't post much , than I don't talk much either Can't learn to much while your talking I stop by once in awhile and if I feel I can help some one I do . Advising EI not to learn to drive the tractor was before my time
When we moved back to the farm a neighbor lady told my wife LEARN to drive the tractor or you'll be working the wagon and she hasn't never forgot it .
What I have found from this site is that whether you from north south east or west or in the middle peoples
people . they say the same phrases most of them think about the same played the same games as kids . All work and live basicly the same . Family is important to most of you and not wanting to offend any one is inportant getting
you feeling hurt isn't fun age doesn't make any difference there's young and old alike here
so I come here once in awhile and plan on staying for a spell Ain't nothing of TV any way

Yes ma'am this is a great board. If folks dont like some of the stuff then they should just ignore it, or state what their b1tch is instead of whining around and tryin to make everyone else miserable. Yep once in a while we may stoop to some name calling, but that happens even in close knit families and we get over the crap. Im here to stay, and I'll post what and when I chose to, just like I hope you all do as well. Later my friends

Well, I'm sick of this topic, the childish comments and the name-calling, and argument for argument's sake.

I'll just say goodbye and good luck to y'all.

Been said here before........Cur Mudgeon    Posted 12-04-2002 at 11:50:31       [Reply]  [No Email]
..but worth repeating. This forum and others has pretty much replaced gathering around the old pot bellied stove at the feed/general store in every rural area in the country where every topic in the world was discussed. It was generally centered around country things and country life but there was a lot of gossip, chain yankin and leg pulling.
There was also disagreement's, hurt feelings and sometimes downright mean things said. I remember my grampa not going to town for weeks after some new comer sat on his stool at the local watering hole and wouldn't move. These things were soon forgotten and life moved on. Don't hear much about potluck suppers, quilting bees, barn raising's etc. anymore. People are just too darned busy.

Sorry, just ramblin

Donna, I couldn't agree with you more! There is a great group of folks on here and, from them, I've learned a lot and am still learning. It turns out I just may need all the tips I can get on country life and tractors and such one day soon as my in-laws have signed over the deed to the farm to my husband. If we move there it is 40 acres in east Texas complete with an old tractor instead of 2 acres near Houston. Big difference. I won't know what to do first but am sure that I can get all the answers I need as soon as I know the questions from right here.

As to the complainers, there's always a few in every group. What got me riled about the complaining was it came the very next post after Mr. Hogman posted the bad news about his wife's health. I think that complainer was not only a whiner, but insensitive and that's why I came back with the smart-alek reply to him and I still stand by it. To Mr. Complainer and all his cronies, if they don't like it they can kiss my foot. I like barns, but I wasn't raised in one and think that anybody who would follow Mr. Hogman's post about his wife's health with a bunch of whining about how this board has "gone downhill" for us not staying "on topic" is acting like they were raised by wolves for all the sensitivity that showed to him. And yes, that IS my opinion. (smile!)

Hi Maggie,
About your future plans, I wish you the best, We made our move from the suburbs of New Orleans about 1 1/2 ago it was the best thing we ever did.
We bought 39 acres here in southwest MS about 3 years prior and took a year to build, We now have a rabbit farm, chickens geese pheasents quail and a new baby calf Our 4 kids are doing great the boys love it and my oldest a a 16 yr daughter did a complete turn around and we are so proud of her.. her self esteem is high, good gradesA & B's when we were building we had neighbors stop just to say hi, back home you barely saw your next door neighbor. One thing we had to adjust to was you don't go any where fast. people love to chit chat(its great)if you grow more than you need you pass it on to your neighbor. This board gave me quick answers every time I needed help. Best luck to you email if you like

Donna, some people will say this is not a country topic but any way.How do you keep all those vines from growing all over your house and traping you inside?:<)

donna    Posted 12-04-2002 at 13:00:13       [Reply]  [Send Email]
I don't get it "vines growing " please explain

Bob /Ont.    Posted 12-04-2002 at 13:12:31       [Reply]  [Send Email]
Those vines that are covering everything over by the river. Around Lorman and Port Gibson. They where from Japan and brought to a worlds fair, somone took some home and they got away and now cover everything. You are lucky if they aren't growing at your place. I'll try to find a pic to put in the gallery and show you.

Donna have you ever been to see the ruins of Windsor? Hint go when the skeeters aren't out:<)

Bob /Ont.    Posted 12-04-2002 at 19:12:28       [Reply]  [Send Email]
Donna, Windsor isn't a town, it was an old plantation with a very impressive house that survived the civil war but burned down in 1891. The columns are all that remain and still stand to this day as they did the day they where built. The front steps where taken away and used at Alcorn University which is near by. Hwy#61 is a nice drive for a day trip some time and there is a sign to the ruins. You take road 552 west from Lorman and follow the signs.

Ok, I found Alcorn U. It is right on the LA line just a little bit farther south than halfway between Vicksburg and Natchez. It hung me up for a bit there, as I know that Alcorn County is up in the far northeast corner. I know this because my Mother's family is all from around Rienzi, Corinth, Tupelo and therabouts. And that area was COUNTRY, let me tell ya. hee hee!

Bob /Ont.    Posted 12-04-2002 at 19:36:09       [Reply]  [Send Email]
I put two pic in the Gallery, I'll put one on of Windsor if I ever find it. Lots to see along Hwy#61, came back that way from NOLA.

Bob, I bet you're talking about Kudzu vines, right? Kudzu grows all over the place in the South and is getting a foothold over here in southeast Texas now, thanks to a local guy who brought some and planted it on a hillside to combat erosion. Well, he doesn't have to worry about erosion anymore, no siree! When you live around Kudzu you just have to keep it cut off of whatever you don't want it on and it is a constant battle. I know when I lived in Alabama there were places it completely covered, but that was in out of the way, unlived in places. You just have to fight it all the time, kinda like Japanese Tallow trees. By the way, don't ever let anybody talk you into taking a Japanese Tallow tree home, no matter how pretty you think they are. They are just as bad as the Kudzu or worse, because their roots go very deep and they are HARD to pull up even when they are little.

Bob /Ont.    Posted 12-04-2002 at 16:11:30       [Reply]  [Send Email]
Maggie, that stuff looks nice growing all over the place but it's killing all the trees and everything else, I doubt a good fire would stop it.

I agree completely with you Donna, granted I post a lot of non-country stuff I guess but yet I post a lot of country questions that have really helped me out. If I didn't have this board the old toot and I would probably still be trying to figure out how to get the pigs moved, what to do about a sick sheep and goat, how to feed critters, what to do with a crooked duck, critter management in the winter, how to drive a tractor which I was told in no uncertain terms NOT TO!, where S&S spend their days, why I needed a tinfoil hat, having people worry about me, sharing the pain of someone who is going through a rough time, having a cheerful good morning waiting for me, laughing till I almost wet my pants, and a zillion other reasons why I just love this board!!!

Elaine    Posted 12-05-2002 at 05:31:23       [Reply]  [Send Email]
