Dome Construction

I always enjoy looking up at the ceiling in our garage at the "bones" of the dome. There is an elegance to it all.

Hipstamatic Pics of Old Buildings

Oklahoma is full of once booming towns that are slowly wasting away. Farming, oil, and manufacturing once supported these little communities. Some that are near larger cities are hanging on, but many more have an almost ghost town feel. The local Wal-Mart is often the only business doing very well although a handful of local businesses usually can scrape by.

There's an eery beauty to the buildings left behind to slowly crumble in the wake of a dying economy. When I am at my most cynical I often wonder if much of America will look like this if our jobs continue to move overseas, oil peaks and declines, and agriculture is in the hands of increasingly larger consolidated corporations.

The Goat Yurt

Our new barn, aka the goat yurt, is almost finished! Good thing since our new buck Abraham has done his job well. By my calculations we should have new baby boer goats the first part of February from 2 mamas. We are also scheduled to buy 2 bottle-baby Nubians to start our dairy herd around the same time. We should be swimming in goats by late winter!
