Herping for Fun

It’s about that time of year… to go herping(in the Northern states or high altitudes)!!! Herping is searching for herps (amphibians and reptiles). Anybody interested? A low-lying wetlands park would be perfect. Equipment needed: boots & willingness to get muddy… small nets would really help out too & pan to observe them in. An identification guide would also come in handy. I can’t wait! I could hear the Bufo americanus singing this afternoon. This would be great for homeschoolers needing hands on biology experience… coming soon, morel season!
Side note, I have now procurred a contract for raw cow’s milk through a herd share! I made delicious butter today in a mixer from the cream off of the top… sigh ­čÖé

Wait For It….

Although I may not be posting a daily blog, I am writing two┬áresearch papers which I will post here soon’ish. One is on feminism and food choice. The other is on the process of finding “safe” drug dosage recommendations and its relationship to aluminum adjuvants in vaccines. Then in my excess free time, I have been reading, The Raw Truth About Milk. I’ll fill you in on the raw milk info from that book that I found most interesting. Meanwhile, both of my children are teething.

Oregon Trail Dairies Deliver

I did a Google search on our family farm, Billanjo Dairy, yesterday and found this news article which briefly mentions our family raw milk dairy farm, along with several others. These are specifically ones in the Klamath and Rogue Valleys of Southern Oregon.

Confessions of a Raw Milkactivist

I LOVE raw milk, from a cow. Satisfying raw milk tastes so delightfully cleaner and cooler than any homogenized or pasteurized supposed “equivelent.”
I grew up on a certified raw milk dairy farm in Oregon. I know the way to get somatic(disease causing) cell counts in natural raw milk lower than you can ever find them in pasteurized milk.
I hate governmental regulations on food that are not scientifically based. Why does anyone have the right or audacity to tell me that a food item isn’t good for anyone, but here… this phony we will advertise and promote, which also garners us income, we will endorse it.
Research continues to show and has always proven that CLEAN raw milk is healthier AND safer than pasteurized.
I will expound on this in the future… but I am just a bit annoyed today thinking about it… all I want to do is buy some milk that I don’t have to feel is similar to playing Russian Roulette… maybe this time it will still be alright to drink it…
Yes, I know I can get raw goats milk. I’ll drink it knowing that it is good for me… but I honestly dislike it… like I dislike swallowing huge vitamin B pills… ahhh GAG ME!
