Ongoing Alaska Chat-- New Thread September - Page 4

Yeah my dad lives by the airport so I'll be walking over from there. If it looks like too much insanity I'll probably turn around and go home.

Holy crap, I would go just because I DON'T support her and because they suggested I NOT go! I'll be damned if I'm denied peaceful assemblage and freedom of expression wherever I'm at! Too bad I'm in Delta and can't get
there.

That's what really made me want to go and wave a big angry sign! Basically saying that if you disagree you aren't a real Alaskan or something.
WTF!! Wow, that's crazy. So I guess if you yell "BOO!" they'll remove you? I wish I could go we could boo them together!

Have a peaceful 9-11 tomorrow, everyone. Our school district is advising us to have a moment of silence in our classrooms to honor the memory.

I just drove by there on my way home from the airport. Signs of anti Palin were the only signs I saw and thought it was hilarious.

yeah, it would be the attorney general UNTIL an election process, but I think it has a specified timeline..

I like Sarah. I don't agree with everything about her, but I don't agree with everything about this state either.. and I still love AK!

I agree.

I watched her Fairbanks speech last night on CNN. YOu have to admit she is a captivating speaker.

Have you looked at realmilk.org? If there is nothing listed there, try contacting your 4-H office and see if they know of any dairies.

Or you could just raise your own cow, but that's a lot of work. lol

You have to buy a share in a cow. People are not allowed to sell raw milk here so you buy a share then you are part owner of the cow and stop by occasionally to pick up your proceeds.

What are your plans for your PFD this year, everyone?
post #76 of 219
Our PFD is already spent. Well, basically. We redid one bathroom on the airlines card last month, so we're going to pay that off, then re-do the other bathroom. We finally bought a hood for the stove, we're going to finish the few pieces of trim left between bathrooms and kitchen (missing 3 pieces of trim for almost over 2 years -- pathetic), and hopefully we're going to get the driveway flattened and gravel put down. We're also talking about having our house rated by the energy efficiency people so we can take advantage of the state programs to do some needed improvements that we can't afford.

I was really hoping to do something fun with it, but it's just not possible this year.

We are going to buy a wood stove and build an arctic entryway!

I know, was just wondering if anyone knows whom I can contact to buy cow shares in the Fairbanks/Delta area...

Check Sunshine Health Food. They carry raw milk. It's not always in stock but about 50% of the time I go they have some. I'd call to check ahead before you make that drive though.
