Little Store on the Prairie

Not the most original title but Laura Ingalls Wilder must be dead by now, she probably won't mind. Other store names in the running include "The Spotted Wattle" to honor the cross bred hogs we have here that are half red Wattle and half Spotted Poland. We found combining these two breeds made for some very loooong pieces of hearty tasting bacon. We also kicked around the name "Piggle Wiggles "not too far from the Piggly Wiggly stores of South Dakota very popular in the 70's. The problem with ALL those names is their lack of reference to the beef we will sell in the store and that is just plain unfair. Some fine cow/cattle types have given their lives for our farm, (we call them heros here in Illinois, where do you think they came up with the name for the Hero Sandwich ? Out of thin air ?) and they deserve to be alluded to in our store name don't you agree ?  But our creative juices have dried up lately. It was spent on the BIG decisions like what color to paint the inside window frames. All three of our sons believe white is the classiest choice while mommy dearest insists on Barn Red.

So until we decide its just "The Store". We hope you can drop by and see it ...maybe even name it. Bring a paint brush, there's still a chance all the work may not be 100% complete. Bets are being collected, they are not in my favor.

  2. The first active ingredient to make a difference is a substance called 1,3-dimmethypenylamine. 1,3-dimmethypenylamine works to kick up your metabolism and block your hunger pangs in the same way that ephedrine does, with one big noteworthy difference. That is that while this substance gives you pep and keeps you alert, it doesn't have the dangerous side effects that ephedrine brings with it. From the food pyramid, you can start to plan your weight loss plans. For example, if you used to have deep fried food for your lunch, but now you know it is bad for your diet programs, therefore you can try to replace it with the food at the lowest hierarchy bread, oat, rice and etc. The fundamental reason why phen375 functions so perfectly is due the presence of the components like dimenthypentylamine, L- carnitine, dehydroepiandrosterone, sympathomimetic amine, and trimethylxanthine etc. Is phen375 a scam?
