From our house (and new fireplace) to yours
We installed a new fireplace in our home this summer and finally have it fired up and heating the house. Sometimes overheating! It is very energy efficient and will easily heat the entire house. Don't know if you heat with wood, but it creates the most constant, comfortable heat possible. Only thing to compare might be infloor heat, but heating with wood is way less expensive, especially if you have lots of free firewood available, as we do.  Because it is so efficient it burns up the gases, which creates quite a show as the logs burn down.  Allan and I sit for hours just watching the flames dance. While I wanted to have a fireplace I had no idea how much we were going to enjoy it.
Holiday Shipping
With Christmas and New Years falling on Wednesdays this year we cannot ship any orders the Monday before Christmas or New Years, as the meat would have to sit in a UPS warehouse over the holiday, surely leading to some unwelcome defrost. So Monday, December 16th, will be our last day to ship this year. We may end up shipping on that Tuesday if we can't get all the orders out on Monday. So please plan ahead for your holiday needs and get those orders in as soon as possible.
Website Improvements
The website has never worked the way I wanted it to. The way orders were coming in it was always hard to tell if you all were ordering in pounds of meat, the way the cart was designed, or in packages of meat, which threw off the total dollars spent. One day I had an epiphany as to why this was happening, called our web designer, and got to work on changing things up to prevent this from happening. I think we have it fixed, but it will work just a little bit differently than it used to. You may not even notice the change, but we will from our side. Just keep in mind that you are ordering pounds, not packages (unless otherwise noted), and it should work just fine. Please feel free to call or email if you have any problems with the ordering process.
Nice Thanksgiving
We had a very nice Thanksgiving with our daughter, Lisa, and her family and friends. SOOO much to eat, so little stomach to hold it all. She cooked 4 turkeys, mostly so everyone would be able to take home leftovers. Lisa does so well with large groups of people, while we, on the other hand, have always preferred very small gatherings. We hope you spent your day with loved ones, and that you also have as much to be thankful for as we do.

In Closing . . .   
As the years fly by we seriously begin to ponder life's mysteries and the favor we enjoy. I know I speak often about blessings, but I am convinced that as we focus on our providence and not on our problems God is very pleased. It opens us up to receive even more, and in greater measure. Finding things to be thankful for even when circumstances would scream otherwise defeats the work of the evil one, and the doors burst open on the storehouse of blessings that God so wants to share with us.  May He  bless each of you in a special way this holiday season. Draw close to Him. The rewards are great.
   
Lois & Allan
