Porky Puppies

Posted: February 26, 2010 by admin in Uncategorized

This is Red – she’s an 8 1/2 yr old little lady that we found on Petfinder when she was just a puppy, and had flown to B.C from Texas. She’s a mutt of unknown heritage, and strongly resembles a golden retriever but is half the size. We think she may have some Nova Scotia Duck Toller in […]

Be Dazzled by Zazzle

Posted: February 24, 2010 by admin in Uncategorized

 With a flashy name like zazzle it’s no wonder I’m dazzled. A few months ago I signed up with Cafe Press – the POD (print on demand) Grand Daddy. I uploaded a few designs in a free basic shop and wonder of all wonders I actually sold a couple things before Christmas. Great products, great […]

Go Canada!

Posted: February 21, 2010 by admin in Uncategorized

Go Canada!The spirit is contagious! While I may not agree with the amount of $$$ spent on the Olympic games,  I certainly do support our local athletes.  They are the reason for the olympics, the whole purpose of all this nonsense – and the over-commercialized items that have registers cha-chinging everywhere. The amount of determination and […]

One week down!

Posted: February 17, 2010 by admin in Uncategorized

It’s been just over a week since we got this year’s calves: JimBob, Hank, Delilah, and Bessie. It’s been an interesting week of changing routines to allow for milk feedings in the morning before the school bus arrives, and in the evening just before dark. Then there’s the shelter bedding changes, topping up water, hay and grain, […]

Redneck Hillbillies

Posted: February 9, 2010 by admin in Uncategorized

RNH – It’s the next hip logo for the youngin’s to wear, don’tcha know? Ok, so maybe it’ll  just be my chitlin and kidlet wearing this beauty. It’s dirty. It’s grungy. It’s messy looking.   Perfect! Almost like the GRG of Garage, or the W49, or the big E for Etnies…. yeah, I can almost hear […]

And Bessie makes FOUR!

Posted: February 8, 2010 by admin in Uncategorized

<– Delilah on the left, and the smallest of the bunch, Bessie on the right. Both are Angus X heifers. Jim-Bob is the Red Angus and Hank is the holstein. Give a big welcome to the latest additions to the Redneck Hillbillies family!

New Spring Calves!

Posted: February 7, 2010 by admin in Uncategorized

Introducing Hank, Jim Bob, and Delilah! Yesterday we went to a local farmer and bought three spring calves. A holstein (Hank), a Red Angus (Jim Bob) and an Angus/Dairy (holstein) Crossbreed. (Delilah) They appear to be healthy and strong, better than last year’s calves anyways. The added bonus is that they weren’t run through the […]

Sugar n’ Spice

Posted: February 5, 2010 by admin in Uncategorized

Sugar and Spice and everything nice.That’s what little girls are made of. *choke* ok um… they weren’t talking about girls like me when this was penned. ;p The popular country song “A little bit” (no idea who performs this little ditty, my apologies)comes a little closer with this nugget of wisdom: A little bit of […]

Will Work For Beer!

Posted: February 3, 2010 by admin in Uncategorized

A couple days per week I go in to the local U-Brew and cook up a few batches of kettle brewed beer. Everything from watered down horsepiss American style pilsner/lager style beer, to heavy and dark ales. One of the biggest perks (and the reason I’m still there) is the deal on beer. It’s great […]

Olympics SchmOlympics.

Posted: February 2, 2010 by admin in Uncategorized

Mr. Redneck Hillbillies saw an interesting sight on the freeway this morning while on his usual commute:  Several dumptrucks loaded with… Snow. It seems the 2010 Olympics committees have to resort to something other than crossed fingers and wishing  on the first star for cold weather and snow accumulations and are now bringing it in. By the truckload.  Most […]
