Big Rock Moved

Big Rock

We have an upper pond that stores water for dry times. August and September sometimes see the springs dry up so this store of about 60,000 gallons of water is key to farming, especially livestock out on pasture.

This month I was improving things around the springs that feed the upper pond as well as around the pond itself. The rock pictured above is at the upper limit of what the tractor can get off the ground. I used chains to keep it in the bucket and was able to lift the rock about 6″ upward, just enough to move it. Based on the tractor’s ability I put the weight at about two tons, roughly 4,000 lbs, as a rough guess.

The rock is sitting on the bare ledge, the bones of the mountain.

Daily Spark:
A believer has faith in God.
An atheist has faith in no god.
An agnostic isn’t so sure either way and likely doesn’t care.
But, what if the function of the Universe is to create God, even be it by accidental inevidability. Once God exists then God will in turn create the Universe. The dragon eats its tail.

    Sort of re your spark:
    A former co-worker at a Hughes Aircraft subsidiary had a posting on her office wall; “Remember that God loves the noise just as much as She does the signal.” Now that lady is in a rest home, diminished, but she was one of the founders of the Libertarian movement, a dear friend… and an atheist.
