"If providence did beards devise,
To prove the wearers of them wise,
A fulsome goat would then, by nature,
Excel each other human creature." - Thomas D'Urfey

The Poll

What can I say? Inquiring minds want to know! After reading a recent comment from a reader, it occurred to me that I have a new goal in life. No, it is not the acquisition of all the Peanuts in the Universe, although, I have to admit this would be most interesting. No, my new goal is to have a reader in every state of the U.S. and as many countries as possible. Now that is an honorable, if not formidable goal, don't you think? So, in order to achieve success, it also occurred to me that I needed to know where the readers I already have are located. Now, if you look to the left of the page, you will see that a poll has been created. I know. In this age of campaigns, elections and Gallup polls, who wants to see another one? But, I assure you, this one is important! After all, I see myself as a purveyor of truth. And everyone knows, "The truth can be spoken only by one who rests in it." - Ludwig Wittgenstein.

So, participate, please! You have until December 6!

Well, you can cross one state off your list, because both me and my mother here in South Carolina are avid Marigold worshipers. Thanks so much for that advice on the animal crackers. Will have to try that, if I can keep my 3 year old son from them, that is. I feel quite honored that the infamous Marigold, who's blog I have been reading for months before starting my own farm, is not only reading but commenting on my humble blog. I am touched. How are you and Baby Belle acquainted?

Marigold said...

Infamous? Moi? Well, I might resemble that remark. :) Baby Belle's goat farmer is my former goat mother.

Thank YOU for reading MY humble remarks!

I just left a comment on DCV's blog and realized I mispelled your name - I'm so sorry!! I, too, have been reading your blog for months. I check every morning, and it makes my day when you have a new post.

Marigold said...

Why thank'ee m'am! A Peanut for you! :)

Dear Marigold,
HELLO from the great state
of Oregon!!
Oregon Grape is our state plant and we love it!! It's not as good as de donna's roses but, it's pretty tasty and therapeutic.

Kansas here, Marigold! The goats that let me live here with them and I say hello and thanks for all the words of wisdom!

Why Yang, how cool is that? Kansas? Our goatmother is an Okie, born just 20 miles from the Kansas border. :)
