“This is the beginning of a new day. God has given me this day to use as I will. I can waste it or use it for good. What I do today is very important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever, leaving something in its place I have traded for it. I want it to be a gain, not a loss – good not evil. Success, not failure, in order that I shall not regret the price I paid for it.” – Heartsill Wilson

“Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you’ll look back and realize they were big things.” – Robert Brault

St Augustine, Florida To See Castillo de San Marcos National Monument

On our return trip of Spring Break, I wanted to mark another National Monument off my list. We visited St. Augustine, Florida to see the Castillo de San Marcos National Monument. This fort was built in America’s oldest city which was settled in 1565. I got more than I bargained for when we hit downtown …

Beatle’s Top Ten Songs From People Who Know Stuff

The Beatles are my favorite musical enterprise ever. I wrote about them here: https://deanorolls.com/2020/04/14/deanos-musical-masterworks-the-beatles/ My Beatles playlist is 5 hour and 32 minutes and contains 115 songs.  This includes every song that I could listen to over and over without stopping from today until the day I depart earth.  If I had to whittle it …

Starting Strength

My favorite podcast.  Rip knows more about more things at a deep level than anyone I’ve ever listened to. Disregard his gruff demeanor and foul language and politics (although I like all that too).  He is a genius (with 45 years of experience) when it comes to strength training. If you listen to him your …

Removing Thorn Bushes (AKA Blackberry or Brier/Briar Bushes) Without Chemicals

One of the first projects on our farm to-do list was to clear an area of pasture that has been overtaken by blackberry bushes. Whatever you call them (thorn, briar, brier) we don’t need them.
