About Me

I've been a female working a "man's job" (mechanical engineer), stay at home Mom (6 kids), working Mom (6 kids to put through college), unemployed, underemployed, temporarily employed and now working from home! We live on an old, small farm with 2 dogs and 2 cats in the house, variable number of chickens out in the yard.

Looks like a long night coming up:

We're having our first bout of hot weather all summer - up until now we've been in the 70's and high 60's.

I have a hound with a deep bark and a spitz with a mid-level bark. Both dogs love to bark - the spitz most of all. The neighbors are watching a little yappy dog and a half grown Huskie. It's going to be call and response all night.

I need some review info on the Keystone pipeline:

True or false: the pipeline will go to refineries in Houston, and all the refined oil products will be shipped to China.

Related questions: where does the oil that is shipped by rail today come from, and where is it going? Would any of the oil shipped by rail today be transferred to the Keystone?

What to do with an inherited library?

My Dad is downsizing and I have his very extensive library - we're talking 200-300 books, easily. Now some of these are out-of-date, but the bulk are solid history, philosophy and classics. We had a cousin interested in Civil War history, so he got that part of the collection. But how do I get the rest into good hands? I'm willing to give them away, but I doubt our local library would take them.
