You can take the meat-eater out of the farmer, but you can't take the farmer out of the vegetarian

So Far
Fourteen sheep lambed - seven to go. Sixteen live lambs and two dead.

Nine cows calved - two to go. Eight healthy calves and one dozy one on a bottle.

One horse foaled - one to go.

And Chloe's afterbirth

This is unbelievable.

On Good Friday I made my confession online, and this morning, Easter day, I received Holy Communion, delivered to me in a polystyrene container by a courier van. It came complete with a DVD of a conveniently shortened version of Easter mass.

So without moving my arse more than ten metres my soul was cleansed. I have to say I do find it heartening that the church has embraced the computer age in this way. Not only convenient for me, but also green for the planet. I call that a win win situation!

Frank, I love you.

Inspired by Leni I just had to put this up. It's long but stick with it - it's a blast!
