We absolutely love our chickens. They run around the yard all day like little dinosaurs and scratch up our lawn looking for insects, leaving their wonderful fertiliser behind, we get delicious fresh eggs from them (and we know what they were fed) and we love the fact that Sydney is growing up around farm animals. I love the

[caption id="attachment_1775" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Sears Repair Puerto Rico is Lame"][/caption]I guess marketing works.

I think I may need to purchase a Hazmat Suit to cook. Last night, I was defrosting a bunch of chicken breasts in the microwave, and the weirdest thing happened. I opened the door to check on the chicken and the microwave didn't turn off! It didn't really hit me at first, but when I realized the microwave

My dad hooked up the tankless hot water heater he brought down and it is SO nice to have a hot shower again! It's easy to think, "Why do you even need hot water? Puerto Rico is already so hot, it probably is nice to take a cold shower!" Well, cold showers got old real quick. Our showers

Today, Gino was going to finish up the tile work in the guest bath. Unfortunately, when the drywall was put in around the sink area, instead of moving one of the pipes...the guys just screwed the greenboard in over the pipe causing it to bubble out. If we had done regular tile instead of butt joints, Gino would
