I was visiting Susie in her office in the stable when she told me that she was having problems with the copier machine.  You may not know this about me, but I’m something of a tech guru.  Susie and Maureen looked doubtful when I volunteered my services, but they were soon very impressed.

Being celebrity dogs, we, of course, have a wonderful and loyal following.  And sometimes, we even get the greatest gifts from our fans.  We receive beautiful paintings, wall clocks, toys, snacks, and most recently, dishes.  But, Sharkey had a little bone to pick with our latest gift.

The farm crew has been really busy with all of their winter chores and one of them is winter pruning.  As you know, we have several apple trees and it’s really important to cut back last year’s new growth in order to stimulate the fruit-bearing limbs.  Pruning the apple trees means you have lots of …

If you’ve been following Martha on Twitter, you know that she has been travelling in Columbia and also in Florida.  Finally, she’s coming home and told us that she is craving a homemade vegetable soup.  We, Frenchies, thought it would be nice if that soup was ready and waiting for her, so we got busy.

Sharkey and I have blogged quite a bit about all the snow that we’ve gotten at the farm.  Snow is really kind of fun, if it doesn’t cascade from a roof on top of you.  While we were scouting around the other day, we came upon some snow saucers and hopped on board.  Have a …
