UPDATE: I emailed Hotfrog to register a complaint and it looks like they removed the information. Thank you Hotfrog for promptly removing the listing…I hope it doesn’t show up again!
WHAT…THE HELL???…IS THIS? Can someone please explain why we/High Desert Chronicles is listed with these phone numbers and states that we live in Sierra, NM? Yet there is a PO box in ABQ? All of this is totally false! We live in Los Lunas, so for any of our readers, please discard any information Hotfrog may have about us. It is WRONG! I hate that shit. I can’t tell you how often stuff like this happens to us. Do I have something written on my forehead that says “Please do say anything of a false nature about me/us.” Holy crap! I think its my age that is putting me at this cross roads in my life. If this would have happened about nine or ten years ago, I would have smiled politely, and allowed the deception to take place because “I know the real truth and I don’t have to prove anything.” I guess I’ve changed…BIG TIME! LOL Lets just say there were a LOT of untruths said about me about ten years ago, and I let them slide. I knew the truth, the truth was on my side right? WRONG! I will never do that again. I will NEVER allow ANYONE to soil my good name for the sake of their self preservation! That’s bullshit. I thought I was taking the high road back then, since the things that was being said was so outrageous it looked like it was for real. LOL I believe it was Adolf Hitler that said that if you are going to lie about something, lie BIG so that it would be believed. How true that is. Some big ass lies where told about me…NEVER AGAIN! Hot Frog should be ashamed of themselves. As a matter of fact, anyone who prints false or misleading information about another party should suffer with a case of scorching himpies! LOL AHAHAH!
It also says there is an EMAIL address…don’t send anything through hotfrog! I don’t even know that email address. Those definitely aren’t our phone numbers either.
Here is the link to what I’m talking about on hotfrog:
About The High Desert Chronicles
- We actually like appliances and certain modern conveniences
- Plus, the first time we went through the house we had Simone with us, which made it difficult to concentrate
- The cavernous hole that seemed never ending in our lives is filling up fast
Over the last few days we’ve been watering our courtyard plants and veggies with duck water from their kiddie pool. It could be a coincidence, but our pepper plants are now just starting to bud. They are starting to look healthier and more vibrant since the duck poop was added. Dom and I had to change out the pool water this morning, and we watered everything from the globe artichokes to Rasta Row. I can’t wait to see what happens! I have been wanting to do this for a few months now, dreaming of the moment when I could pour duck poop water all over my little fruits and veggies. Its like they are getting a poop milk shake! LOL Refreshing on a hot day and filled with all kinds of beneficial nutrients.
We made a temporary duck house for them which I must say looks a lot like an abandoned building with squatters living inside. Dom simply took scraps of wood we had laying around and concocted a home for them. Its working fine, but I do hate the fact that the kitchen cabinet doors which we took OFF of the cabinets are making a comeback on the temp duck house! I know I could do some things to make the structure a little more attractive, but I don’t want to waste the energy on it since we have so many other things to do throughout the day. The amount of weeds that are coming up right now is amazing. Billions…not millions of weeds. BILLIONS! In the area where the fruit trees are planted I was able to fill three 3 gallon buckets up with weeds. After picking them, I brought them into the duck pen and the ducks and chicks when nuts for the weeds. They really love puncturevine, tumbleweeds, and Bermuda grass. Oh, they also love grass hoppers, beetles, flies and anything else that moves. A yummy treat for them.
Here are some photos I took as of this morning around our property:
Sweet potatoes growing in an old container. I planted the slips a few days ago.
More globe artichokes and also flanking the artichokes are some volunteers growing. We are unsure what they are. They look and feel like sedums, but our neighbor said that the old timers around here eat it like wild spinach. They are pretty cool little plants, so we are letting them grow here.
Zucchini getting large and in charge.
In this photo, zucchini, to the left and right of the zucchini are pickling cucumbers and those little green things coming up behind it all near the fence are snow peas. Almost every single snow pea I planted last week has come up.
In this photo to the left are all the snow peas coming up. To the right are new grey zucchini and of course the large green things are mammoth sunflowers and Jerusalem artichokes.
Part of Rasta Row. Not too long ago I planted Bush beans in between the pepper plants. Almost all of them showed up a few days ago. Three beans didn’t make it. Not too shabby.
As you can see, the leaves of the strawberry plant were totally scorched by the sun and drying heat and wind. After putting up a shade for them, most of them made a nice recovery. I don’t know if you can see it, but there is a white strawberry blossom peeking through one of the leaves…do you see it? Yeah baby!
Armenian cucumbers made a bold comeback! Also planted and supporting the cucumbers are yard long beans planted on either side of each of the cucumber plants. They are flowering now. I also planted more mammoth sunflowers in this long patch and they are coming up now also.
Mammoth sunflowers, yard long beans and pumpkin growing in these two patches.
