Minor Change to Louisville Classified Ads
The volume of Classified Ads continues to increase, and recently we are getting folks in China, India, etc that have been trying to post ads for all sorts of interesting goodies. So What? Well, there would be nothing special about our Classified Ads, if all that lovely stuff was allowed, so I zap it like a bug zapper. I am trying to reduce the amount of time I spend on that, currently about 40min a day just to keep our Classified Sections (all 14 Communities), clean and friendly,
by asking people to enter their zip code when they place their ad.
Not a huge task, for somebody from around here
Allison tells me, that everybody here knows their own zip code.
But, it is a real problem if you are sitting in a Beijing sweat shop banging away on a keyboard
and that helps me automatically weed out a lot of the non-genuine folks.
The point of this message is to apologize for the extra step,
and assure you I am not trying to keep the South Bend, Manley and Cedar Creek folks out,
just all the cell-phone parts and pharma ads

Just so you know!

From the Editor
Happy Chickens
Deep Freezer in Paradise

For those of you that might be considering leaving the big city, and moving out here to the land that knows no parallel parking, may I suggest a deep freeze.
A Big One!

Before Louisville, I had no idea how useful these gizmos are

First off, you get some land, here or here start to get acquainted with your neighbors, it is a matter of time until make a beef connection.

People out here know, people, that know people that are planning to score a cow, a pig, (goat?) or in our case, neighbors that raise chickens!

I am serious! Real Chickens from Chicks! Feathers and all!
Apparently they buy baby chicks, and feed them chicken feed, and suddenly:
Broilers!
I had a Chia Pet one Christmas.. kinda like that I guess..

We made a connection with a neighbor that traffics in poultry, and I would be severely punished if I gave out his name, but Man! I gotta tell you! You have never had chicken, until you have one that is raised right here in Louisville!

Nothing like a bland old nasty supermarket pullet, this is a bird with a positive outlook on life, or at least had one until very recently.

We used to get eggs, from the same connection, but a dog got into the hen house and I guess, scrambled that deal.

Couple times a year, the Chics get plucked and the
big poultry buy goes down!
Coolers filled with ice, cash is counted out, a final check of the time and to see if the coast is clear, and off we go to meet our connection.

Money is exchanged, birds are counted, birds go in the coolers, and back we go to the Deep Freeze in the basement

all but one bird gets the big chill. It is tradition that one bird is reserved for the feast

One Bird, Fresh, Plump and Probably Flapping a few hours ago has an appointment with the Weber Grill and some smoked Apple Wood chips.

and my oh my, that is good stuff..
Life is Good Out Here!
