Are you an ice watcher?

It’s that time of year again. To me it is like the night before Christmas. Only in this case, it is the days before the lake goes out.
Last year, I went to the cottage on April 21. I could have gone Saturday on a snowmobile if I was brave enough to jump the water between the shore and the ice six feet away. I know I am not alone in watching the ice disappear from the lakes. It is part of every cottagers conversation.

The sheep

By Al Lowe

Among domestic animals used for food, there are three major ones, cattle, pigs and sheep.
Sheep have a great advantage for the farmer. They not only produce meat - lamb and mutton - but they also produce wool. The fur of sheep has been used for hundreds of years to make all sorts of things. Fine clothes like those cashmere sweaters, ordinary clothes like suits and long wooly underwear, towels, blankets, rugs, mats, and in Scotland, kilts and plaids, and a whole lot more things, too.
