Today we honor all those who struggled through out our history to make the workforce safe and equable for us all. Let us hope this struggle will continue to succeed and stop child labor and virtual slavery across our world.
Buy local, manufacture local, try for self sufficiency in all things.
For all of those who serve, before, now, and in the future, Thank you!
Ah Spring. Time to start planning on hitting the trail. Although it is snowing today, we are not worried, we know that snow will just make the grass all the greener.
Looking forward to a long and busy summer, traveling, playing, and talking smart around a campfire.
From us to you, may 2016 be full of prosperity and adventure!

Today in history the last major conflict of the Indian wars took place at Wounded Knee Creek in South Dakota after Colonel James W. Forsyth of the 7th Cavalry disarms Chief Big Foot and his followers.
Some 300 Sioux Indians are killed by U.S. troops at the Wounded Knee massacre.
This is a sad and horrendous piece of the history of the United States. It is our hope that going froward our history can show more bright spots than dark.
We were discussing today’s Winter Solstice and wondering if we should write our disappointments from the closing year down on paper, and burn them, sending the ashes of our despair drifting into the wind. We both thought for a moment and in one voice said. :Ya know. this has been a darn good year!”
For you all we wish happiness and joy to you and your families for Christmas, and our coming New Year. We wish for you love and prosperity, health and safety.
We wish you many blessings
From J.T. and Tilly
