Killing Us Slowly




Colonel’s Blog, Earthdate 5 March 2024…

Hey Y’all!


Good morning and happy Tuesday from Air2Ground Farms! The weather continues its spring-like tendencies. We had some thunderstorms overnight and it is warm and muggy this morning. Rain continues in the forecast through Saturday morning. This morning, after the rain last night, the green is popping everywhere! The top pic is Makaylah and I doing the rounds yesterday morning while Shelley was in Oklahoma for my mom’s surgery. The next pic is about half of the sheep flock. I’ll spend a bit of time talking about this one. First, note the wide green strip along the left side of the photo, where quite a few sheep are gathered. That strip is where last year’s beef chickens ran up and down the pasture. There is less broom sedge and more green grass. The grass in that strip is growing faster than that around it, a perfect example of how these farming practices regenerate pastures. Now to the sheep…they aren’t supposed to be there. They went through an electrified fence and then a barbed wire fence to get to that spot. There are 160 acres on our farm, and that is the spot where they "wandered." The nutrient content of that grass is probably the highest of anywhere on the farm, and somehow they found it. Sheep are so dumb…or are they? The other animals are doing very well. The cows are starting to lose their winter coat and are looking a bit ratty with patches of short hair. The layers continue to up their game and we are getting more eggs everyday.


I wanted to give you guys a quick update on my mom’s surgery. The hospital where they performed the surgery, in Tulsa OK, took very good care of her. They were very kind and gentle. She went into surgery at 10:00AM yesterday and came out one hour later at 11:00. It was a successful mastectomy with clean margins. They took two lymph nodes and upon examination during surgery they were found to be unremarkable. They will examine them further to make sure but all signs are good. She was out of recovery and with Dad, Shelley, and other family by 2:00PM. Being an outpatient procedure, the was on the road by 4:00PM and home by 5:30. She rested well overnight but the nerve block is starting to wear off and she is sore this morning. It was encouraging for me to overhear Mom telling the nurse that she didn’t want that “full-of-sugar Jello” because cancer cells “up-regulate glucose and she wasn’t taking any chances by offering them food.” Maybe one day, the reality will hit more people that the "food" we are ingesting by following the Standard American Diet is literally Killing Us Slowly.


On Monday’s Dust’er Mud podcast, we discussed how hackers are using AI to up their game and how we were the victims of a whaling phishing attack. Check it out!


Cheers!

Glad your mom’s surgery went well! Praying for her for comfort and healing! She seems like a strong woman. She stands on a firm foundation to share her faith even in times of difficulty. What an example for the next generation!
