My Homestead when it is green





My Good Friend Ark was asking if the “Wintery Background Photo” was of my home.  I replied “yes” and decided to show him what it looked like when it was green.  I hope it becomes this way again, SOON !!!

  1. Gorgeous, Ken. It’s a beautiful property! I hope you have some dogs to enjoy the space with.


  2. Thank you John ! Unfortunately I don’t have any dogs because I travel so much, but I enjoy my family’s pets when they visit. As I get older and curb my traveling, I will definitely own one. I have always loved dogs. My 3 grandsons (5,4 and 2) simply love coming to see grandpa. 🙂 I bought this place last October mainly with them in mind. I do enjoy sitting in the sun room overlooking the pond. So peaceful. And I have a 30 X 60 metal building where I have my toys and a small shop area. I restored a 1930 Ford Model A car which I tinker with from time to time. I will have to display it here sometime. The grandkids love to ride in it. 🙂


  3. Awesome, Ken. I’m selling up and moving in with you as we speak!


  4. Thanks Ark !~ I doubt that you would care for the 4 months of freezing rain, snow and zero temps however. 🙂


  5. I feel more relaxed just looking at the photos! What a great place in nature you have Ken. That’s really cool.


  6. Thanks Howie ! It is a relaxing place that I am thankful for. I also love to hear the sounds of family and friends when they visit too !

    Sorry I replied so many times on your post tonight. unkleE tends to provide reports people have written about a “study” but rarely do I see the study itself. I like knowing what factors went into the study itself. Otherwise you are just reading someone’s opinion of the study which could have a slant.

    I’ll try to do more research in the future first so I don’t clutter up your blog. 🙂


    • Oh no worries at all about all the comments – I enjoy every comment that comes through! Well except the nasty ones. 😉 I thought you had some great comments related to what UnkleE had written. I wasn’t really sure how to approach his comment.


  7. I tried to actually read the study he referred to but you have to buy it online. All we can go by is what this other person had to say about the study.
    I am always skeptical about someone writing a “review” about a “study”.

    I’ve never doubted unkleE’s sincerity , I’m just skeptical of some of his sources though many times they’re “spot on”


  8. Amazing place you have there.


  9. And here your profile picture had me thinking you must live someplace a lot hotter and drier. 🙂


    • Thanks Matt !

      I actually live in Springfield, IL (home of the “other Abraham” Lincoln) 🙂 I have spent time in Egypt but wouldn’t want to live there. I do hope the violence does stop. I would love to go back again. One of the most amazing places on the planet !



      • Such a nice spot. I grew up in the country, live now in the burbs in Austin. I like Texas, but the climate is getting ever hotter. It will look like Albuquerque in a few more years I guess. Green. Ahhhh. Yep, we have that for a month.


  10. My oldest brother lives in Houston. Pretty much the same problem. Hot Hot Hot . Though I have the green season for about 7 – 8 months , I also have lots of humidity . I too grew up in the country and don’t know how I survived the Summers without A/C as a kid. LOL And I bucked bales of hay all day on Saturdays in the Summer so I could earn $20 to go out on a date. 🙂
