Working census, cleaning up lawns and doin' the farmin' thing. My Droid has a lot pluses but, a few downfalls are it will not allow me to post on to my blog, it won't let me access my online billpay due to pop up blocker feature and it manuevers best on facebook via opera beta browser.

Have had a couple recent disappointments lately. Someone violently entered my cabin and buried an axe in the floor. I have had friends for years urge me to pack a handgun when I went back to my isolated cabin and I was resistant. When someone breaks down your locked door w/ an axe 1.2 miles back in the woods and the latch lands 10 - 12 ft from the door and buries the axe in the middle of that steals some of your piece of mind. The county sheriffs dept is sending the axe to Madison to check for DNA evidence.
