Please read the entire blog post with detailed info on my website here.

Hey Michael, your page looks great! I am really impressed by all the things you are doing to build a homestead.  Keep us updated on your progress! Member blogs are a great way to do so, especially if you are already a seasoned writer.  Enjoy the site - looking forward to your contributions!


PS - I love Sigur Ros! I saw Jonsi in Iceland!
