Hen House Full O'Chicks

Photobucket

I'm nursing this flu along and working to create a special dinner tonight for the *Farmer's Daughter*. She'll be visiting for the weekend and we'll be celebrating her birthday. It's actually next weekend but she won't be able to make it home.

I want to thank you all for your continued support of my blogging efforts. A loyal group of readers actually energize the space. WIthout you it degenerates to the sound of one hand clapping.

Yesterday I was honored to have a gentleman speak up and he's totally welcome in the Hen House. If you notice, on the left hand column there's a list of my Peeps. They are those people who help me in my day-to-day life. I would love to expand upon this idea and create the Hen House full of cybernetic experts.

Here's what I'd like you to do. Let me know your area of expertise. That way if there's any burning questions I can call upon my expert Hen (or Rooster). For example:

Marlene would be one of the experts on quilting.
Louise is a creative force in the area of stamping and card making.
Chocolatechic would be the expert on ....... chocolate!

What about you? Would you like to be added to the list of expert Hens? Let me know. I can link to your website and put you on my list of go-to experts.

First I hope that you will be feeling better soon.

Secondly, you must tell us about those rings.

Lena . . . said...

I know very little about anything and a lot about nothing. Sorry I won't be able to help you out. Well, on second thought, maybe I know more about lutefisk than you ever wanted to know (chuckle).

Thirkellgirl said...

I definitely think Lena should be the lutefisk expert. What a great niche!

I could be your theology expert. I could be a homeschooling expert, but you're kind of past that phase of life (as am I, *almost). I could advise re: east coast coastal mores, too. Put me in, coach!

Hope you're feeling better.

Vee ~ A Haven for Vee said...

Apparently, I am the expert on toxic waste. ;>

Have a wonderful celebration despite this flu business. Hope that you get lots of help with the preparation and lots of time to rest.

Lisa said...

My favorite things are history and desserts.
I don't know if I'd call myself an expert on either....unless it's tasting desserts. I'm definitely an expert at that! Also, my fave periods in history are the civil war, ww2, and the civil rights mvmt.
On second thought, maybe I should just read the blog......

Lucy said...

Hmmmmm.....I can play a piano and organ. And I can saddle a horse. How 'bout those two closely related talents.

lisa said...

(Coming out of the woodwork...)

I have to say that I love your photography and have thoroughly enjoyed your blog, being that I am a homesick country kinda girl living overseas...your blog brings me home sometimes.

So I'm an expert in homesickness, and very much an expert at being married to a man from a different country.

I'm also a wedding photographer. Business here is slow though, lol. Just so different.

Feel better soon:o)

Mrs Parks said...

Ummmmm, I am an expert in trailerpark etiquette, politics and potlucks.
You know what they say, you can take the girl out of the park, but you cant take the park out of the girl!

Design Gal said...

love those rings! get well soon!

martina said...

"A genius is someone who knows more and more about less and less until finally they know everything about nothing" is a quote I saw years ago. I'm no genius but know a bit about general trivia and dog care.

Marilyn said...

What a great idea! I'd love to be a part of your Hen House. If you want to know about lifelong learning and "the pleasure of finding things out," I'm your chick with a blog.

I also have a blog about Flagstaff and Northern Arizona. If you have any questions about this gorgeous area, all you have to do is ask.

I'm a freelance writer and always start my writing day with "the Farmer's Wife" and you never disappoint. Hope you're feeling better soon.

StitchinByTheLake said...

I don't consider myself an expert but I'd love to join your "peeps" because I love your blog! Hope you feel better soon - my allergies are trying to morph into a sinus infection and I'm desperately trying to prevent that from happening! blessings, marlene

Cindy La Ferle said...

Sue, I am down with the flu this weekend too. Hope you shake this bug really soon! As a published essayist, columnist, and writing teacher who specializes in memoir and essay writing, I would be glad to offer tips on the writing life, for what it's worth :-)

Ruta M. said...

Hi, Hope you get over the flu soon. I'm still trying to sort out my flu jab. I teach small children and used to be a riding instructor for the Riding for the Disabled Association but I don't really have a useful area of expertise, just flit from one thing to another trying to get on with life.
I wanted to let you know that I've awarded you the Uber Amazing Blog Award for all the pleasure I get reading your blog. Check out my blog for this Saturday.

PatQ said...

I would be glad to answer any knitting questions. I'm far from an expert but I can hold me own.

Claudie said...

I might be good for dog information or rescuing cats... but that's not why i am writing you.
All those hands with those pretty rings oh my!!. I have the bracelet and necklace to match, just had to tell you.
Happy Birthday to your daughter. Mine turns 20 next month wow where has the time gone. Love your photography and your blog.

I'll be the cake baker. :-)

EMBELLISHER said...

I could be your person to consult for Textiles from India maybe that's something you'll never have to deal with so how about India in general? because that's where I'm from.

Molly said...

Hmmm, I'm one of those people that knows just a little about many things...perhaps your 40s art pottery person? Or your golden retriever person...beginning knitter, amateur photgrapher, and sometimes scrapbooker...blog reader?

Princess S said...

I am a jack of all trades and master of none!!!! I do have quite a few ideas and can be pretty ingenious or too obstinate to know better.....exapmle..I once too a saws all to a queen sized mattress and boxsprings and converted them to fit a 3/4 size frame.....I had a few looks but it turned out and it is comfortable!!! I hope that is a good enough resume!!!

Louise said...

Thanks so much for the little plug!

Very kind of you!

Kathi~Lavender, Lace and Thyme said...

What a wonderful idea Suzane! I am willy nilly and attempt just about anything. Thanks to Vee I have made my way over here several times and I always enjoy myself :)

Diane said...

Hmm, I'd love to join the list but I can't think of anything I'm expert in. Drats. I do make almost all of my clothes as well as all of my window treatments, pillows, dust ruffles, etc. But I wouldn't consider myself an expert. Still, if you have a sewing question, feel free to ask. I might know the answer. No blog, but you can reach me at dlord(at)pinehurstpropertiesllp(dot)com.

Rue said...

Hi Suzanne :)

Well, I'm your greatest fan (gave that name to myself LOL) and I'm also an expert at moving from the big city (LA) to small town America. Oh and I'm an expert in everything Rich (as in my husband), but I don't think thats of any use to you... hmmm.. basically I'm useless, but I'm a loveable useless ;)

hugs,
rue

Rue said...

Oh and I hope you feel better. I'm sick too... ack!

Joy and Phil said...

I am certainly not an expert but I live full time in a 34 ft. class A motorhome. We travel all over the United States on the backroads looking for adventure while I continue to research my family history (over 35 years now).

I am also writing my mother's biography. We have been on the road for four years so I would be happy to try and answer any questions about RVing (full or part time).

lifeinredshoes said...

I'm almost afraid to admit it, but I'm pretty good at laundry. Having bright colors and crisp whites are almost a thing of the past. I'd love to be included in your hen house!

Stubblejumpers Cafe said...

Areas where I actually know what I'm talking about:

Intuitive Counselling through tarot card reading; I've been at it since 1984.

Proofreading and Editing. I can pick fly shit out of pepper from 50 feet away, and will dot your I's and cross your T's while I'm at it.

Oh, and I can make whole wheat bread without one ounce of white flour, and if I say so myself, it is not a brick and is delicious.

At your service, ma'am.

Well, I'm not an expert but have lots of advice on what 'not' to do when you are starting a hobby farm!
