Our First Squirrel Meal!

A couple of days ago (as you can watch in GTC Oudoors-Squirrel Hunting) we shot a few squirrels and Benjamin skinned them and gave the meat to a friend to cook.
Today he came over and brought squirrel & dumplings. It was very, very good! I was kind of leery about eating it at first, but the meat was very tender and tasted like-yes, you guessed it-chicken.

P.S. Benjamin had killed two squirrels and one of them was hunted on GTC Outdoors-Squirrel Hunting.

Young Raccoon with Mother from J. Andrew Wong on Vimeo.

We caught this raccoon in a small squirrel trap on Sunday. I experimented with some dramatic editing, but I should probably be practicing holding the camera still.

A last minute change to MO SB 291 posed a serious threat to the freedoms and rights of homeschoolers across the state. A call for an emergency rally on the Capitol steps went out. The only problem was the fifteen hour notice given, but the response was amazing. It is estimated that 2,000 people came from all over the state. This is footage from the rally held on May 14, 2009 on the Capitol steps.

Saturday, May 16, 2009 & Audiobooks

Lately, I've been listening to some classic books while my brothers and I catch up on some yardwork. I bought an iPod Shuffle on eBay. I got a 2GB silver Shuffle for only $32 (including s/h) which dosen't cost much more than a new walkman.
You can download a bunch of free, quality audiobooks from There are a few audiobooks on, but they're mostly text versions of the book. The books on LibroVox are read on a volunteer basis and books are being added all the time.

A Chimney Swift in a Chimney

A couple of days ago we heard that a bird had flown into our chimney. We knew that they were building a nest inside of it and we are wondering how to get rid of it.
Benjamin used a net and caught the bird and I took some pictures of it. The bird was a "Chimney Swift." We let ago and a few minutes later it was back in the chimney!
