Weekend Assigment #57: Share some of your favorite Journals, Blogs and Web sites not on AOL Journals.
It'll have to be a web site, because the blogs I'm really hooked on are right here in J-land. I'll sometimes peek at a few outside AOL, just because they're "a friend of a friend".
I have some message boards I lurk on, and sometimes post. The site I'm going to mention, though, is the one to which I go with livestock questions. Especially the equine message board. There are knowledgeable people to answer my questions. If you live in the city, I doubt this one will interest you. It's Homesteading Today. I had a chance to buy a Jersey cow on their barter board once, she just wasn't quite the right age, and wasn't bred to a Jersey.
Extra credit: Find a link you think your mother might like. What is it?
I have two. This cracks me up, in a way... but I believe these are the ones she'd be most likely to be interested in; I found them with the help of Google. The first is Churches of Christ on the web. As far as Mother was concerned, this was THE Church. Everything else was just "denominations".
The second is this: The Worldwide Quilting Page. After retirement, my mother turned out quilts like a factory! Every family member has several of her quilts. My ex-daughter-in-law recently found one in storage that was given to her and my son when they were married, and figured he might want it. I'm sure he will.
