No, I was born outside of DC while my dad was working for the NSA. Once he left the military, he became a missionary, which is how our family ended up in Iceland. To this day, it sounds weird every time I tell it.

I just followed you on Pinterest, Vicky. It looks like we have more interests in common than geese. You're not the first Anglophile I've met. ;) My brother brought his family home for Christmas, and my sister-in-law and I made a trip to the store. A lady overheard us talking, walked up and asked if my SIL was from England. We were both a little stunned when she proceeded to ask my SIL to say something else, because she just loved to hear her accent.

My brother walks a lot on the moor, but he did tell me he has to be very careful... something about how quickly the fog can move in, and getting lost. I guess the village where he lives is in a perpetual cloud. I'll have to see if I can find the book you mentioned.

I think a lot of the ladies around here have similar interests.
I think that's why we all get along. -> :wink

Wendy, I was very lucky... she and I both do business in a town that is about half way between the two of us, so I was able to meet her. I've promised myself not to become a bird collector, but I can already tell I'm going to have to resist the urge. I guess it would be better than the dairy goats I used to keep. I was only supposed to have a couple, but they had a tendency to multiply, and the next thing I knew, I had a herd on my hands.

Exactly! As my business was growing, I had less and less time for goats, and finally made the difficult decision to sell my herd. I've found that chickens and geese are much less labor intensive, but I actually seem to get more satisfaction.

I miss the goats and horses but at this stage of my life the small livestock is cheaper to feed and easier to care for.
