2,000 Post Milestone

2,000 Blog Posts

Bit of a milestone on my blog as I posted the 2,000th blog post yesterday about Of Porcupines and Stock Car Racing. It is amazing how far one gets by putting one foot in front of the other. At the end of August I’ll complete my 9th year on my blog since writing the welcome post in 2005.

I write primarily for myself, for my own enjoyment, for relaxation. It is a way of recording our journey and projects such as the building of our cottage, our butcher shop, research, kids, dogs, pigs and mysteries. I hope that you find it useful, amusing and entertaining as you peek into activities here at Sugar Mountain.

Thank you to everyone who has written comments be they words of encouragement, reports from the field or questions. All are welcome on posts both new and old. One of the wonderful things about the web is how articles stay live and discussions are extended over the years rather than being static like a book.

For those who are new to my blog, check out the right hand column for ways to dig deeper through the search function, the tag cloud, favorite articles, most commented and other tools. Within the articles watch for links that will take you deeper into a topic like rotational grazing or flowers.

My blog is created on an aging Frankensteinian MacBook computer using WordPress for delivery and a Casio EX-V8 digital camera for most photos.

Here’s looking forward to more adventures, the next 2,000 articles and another decade of life on Sugar Mountain…



Outdoors: 75°F/48°F Sunny
Tiny Cottage: 68°F/64°F

Daily Spark: The other day there was a news article in the paper about the Vermont fire inspector who’s Ford Fusion collided with a Pontiac Sunfire. Fortunately there was no nuclear explosion, no melt down and nobody was hurt but it was quite the coincidence of names and title.

    I just want to say to you walter thank you for all the wonderful info and experiences and everything that you have shared for so long. I am a long time blog reader and I have learned so much from you!

    Me too. I have learned so much from your blog. If you ever organize it into a book I’m first in line to buy a signed copy!

  3. Congratulations Walter! I’ve been lax about commenting on your blog but have never stopped following you. Over 5 years I think now and we have also learned so much from you that we have applied here on South Pork Ranch in Illinois. Soon we’ll be moving to a smaller farm where we will built a much smaller house again following your lead. THANK YOU for all you do for the rest of us.
