    Farming must be the life. Man in tune with nature, busting ground with the cold steel of a plow, working the soil like the father's of our forefathers. Busting your back out in the hot sun, hands cracked and dirtied by the manual labor of providing food and other homegrown items using natural and artificial methods...
    Man it must be like heaven.

    I envy you.

    A very technical person, expecially someone that lives in the king of moving forward (Japan), always disires such a life style at least one time in their life

    We all need a balance of everything to feel truely alive!

    I feel the disire slightly too BB

    Farm life could be sweat i suppose, i don't get along with animals though, apart from something like a dog

    Hehe!

    Gimie-
    I'm city folk, too. My sister has 5 acres upstate. We visit her and her family in the summer. The rest of the time, my 3 jack russells are enough animals for me.

    Chacun son gut.

    Last night, I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I'll never know.
    love, piaqt

    As far as my knowledge goes, all my relitives are all city folk, a few in the countryside, but that's just for the peace and quiet

    Still... ya never know, i'm sure i will meet many of my unknown relitives that could be "people of the land" when i'm out on my travels

    Nope, just one stupid dog that runs into things for me!

    Every other animal/pet in my home have died over the past year or so, kept em' so long

    Gimie:

    Just to tell you about the kind of farm i have,to clear up the sheep thing.

    All my animals,17 horses,8 goats, 1 jack, one hell of a mule (1600 pounts) were all abused and near starvation. I take them in ,heal them and then send them on to well known friends(with lots of $),who will take care of them until they die.I just grow herbs and my own little vegie. garden.My pers. pets are 2 Akitas and 1 cross bread ( verry small) and believe it 9cats.

    P.S. I just know my animals are to sweet, they would not eat you i just know it. I brought stranger things then little green things home before and nothing happend.

    we have a mini farm going ourselves...we have a 5 yr old golden retriever, a 4 yr old pygmy goat, a bull frog tadpole, alligator lizard and a lady bug cage with 1000's of ladybugs (my youngest daughter loves lady bugs what can I say.)

    Question

    We have 3 rescued jack russell terriers, and, this being NYC, a full complement of cockroaches. Does that qualify my apartment as a mini-farm?

    Last night, I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I'll never know.
    love, piaqt
