TODAY IS GOAT DAY NOTE FROM BEAVER
We leave Jubille this morning at 7:00 to go to Lester to buy Goats.. God
brought Cenor yesterday to bring it all together… he helped me
write the ‘goat contract’ that each participating family will sign.
With the money Jennifer Johns church collected 4 montha go , I think
we can buy 5 female goats… We have gathered/involved 15 families to
start. 5 families get 1 female goat. When that goat give young they
pass along the doe after the young are weined. The doe is passed to
the next family in the program. if the doe gives two femailes they
keep one and pass along both the momma and one of the baby females to
two families. If the goat gives a male and female then they pass
only the momma along.
After the goats each give one set of babies then another tier of five
families is added. If one of the goats dies and untimely death then
that family gets added back into the tier stucture… kinda like a
perimid scheme. we can’t loose. Who couldn’t use another goat in the
family.. in your spare time??
It should be a fun day.
I think the truck may be full this morning… the news traveled fast yesterday
that today was the day. I am going to borrow Bills camera and see if
I can’t capture the spirit of the event on film/didgits…
After I get back this afternoon I have an appointment with Matthew
(technical assistant to the Mayor) and the Water guy from the french
group that tests water.
We are going to meet in Jubille in the gazebo.
I want him to see our well and give suggestions.
What i am hoping is the result of
this visit is that all three of our wells at the house and 2 in
jubille will be tested for bacteria and that I will get to show them
the Gardeners well to the south. That well needs some help getting
the water out of the ground.
I am going to suggest a wind or solar
pump system could be a project for some group. I can just imagian a
wind mill there that pumps water slowly but surely to those parched
garden plots.. ‘the greening of jubille’
some time today as well i will give these letters to Dr. Louissant
about the nurses training. Could be a banner day!!!
