    Glad to know you caught the program regarding the Chaco Culture. It is truly a mysterious place. The religeous / cultural center theory has gained popularity over the past few years. In fact there are some who believe that the "pueblo" structures were only inhabited during religeous or cultural festivals. I tend to dissagree since there is clear evidence of large rectangular tracts of land where crops were grown.
    Fascinating stuff indeed.

    Hello, Mick.
    I figured I'll let my Chaco thread fall back a few pages and respond to your question here. The "Anasazi" had mastered the ability to grow corn in that enviornment. Corn was the staple food, but they also hunted rabbits, turkeys. There is a small wash that runs through the valley which provided water. Why they chose this particular canyon is a mystery, since there are many other areas in the region with more reliable resources.

    I love mine. I bought it in February when it was being sold solely by Amazon's American branch. And it cost more than the bog standard one now being offered by Amazon UK. You say your eyed are weak. There is a button to magnify the font. No I don't miss handling real books because I still buy them and read them. It's incredibly simple to use. Once you have registered it and it sends a booklet to tell you how all you need do is go to Menu, go to Kindle Store, choose what you want to read and download it. Many books are in the public domain and cost nothing You can read a sample before buying and also read reviews before buying. I am delighted I got one and am very happy with it. I have downloaded more than 120 books since I got it. It is easy to use. Be brave!

Running- off the tractor

by prendrelemick on 08-08-2014 at 01:03 PM
Running off the tractor.

Dad's tractor, a 1958 Massey Ferguson 65, was a monument to his optimism. He kept it
parked up the "Strips", a steep track above the farm. This was because it had no
working starter motor, or battery, or in fact any electrical systems at all.
It had to be "run off", and then kept running until the day's work was done.
"Whatever you do, Don't stall the tractor!" was the mantra

The new pup, Gwen, has arrived. The house is a tip and has a slightly unpleasent fragrance, we are tired due to the howling in the night. However, I think it is important that she lives in the house for a week or two so she knows she belongs.

I can just about get the sheep jobs done with Meg but she'll only ever be a stop gap and then a yard dog - I just can't trust her - she sets off to round up some sheep and I can't be sure she'll come back -or stop when she needs to. She won't

More Meg

by prendrelemick on 09-02-2013 at 08:10 AM
Things have settled down with Meg, Mainly because I have resigned myself to the long haul, abandoning all her previous training and starting afresh - as though she is new to sheep doggery. We're getting along fine and we are completing tasks together. I am working on the principle that REAL work is the best training, so I take her out on her own and we round some sheep up, it often goes a bit wrong, and usually takes longer than it should, but I don't bring Nelly along so we HAVE to manage, and

Meg again.

by prendrelemick on 07-12-2013 at 04:22 PM
Meg's training is now on phase three. Phase one was fairly disasterous, where I tried her with sheep straight away and she kept running off in ever increasing circles. Phase two was to take off all the pressure and have nothing to do with sheep for a bit, so that the "come to me" command now means come here and have a cuddle, and "lie down" means roll over and have your tummy scratched. This has worked as far as it goes, she has become alot more relaxed.

Meg -Disaster and back again.

by prendrelemick on 06-30-2013 at 06:01 AM
My son has been in California for a week or two (working) so his body clock is all to pot. Yesterday he got up at 2 am and took the dogs for a walk (he didn't know about Meg's behavior). Anyway, she ran off at the first sight of sheep and would not return to him, and eventually disappeared. This is fairly serious in sheep country, when it comes to loose dogs, farmers tend to shoot first and ask questions later .

When I got up I noticed there were alot of sheep in front of the
