A Steaming Load of Shatner It is foggy this morning. The llama paddock is getting muddy. Bonnie put down more straw to protect the grass from those weird feet they have. I don't think I have time this AM for any photos. Working as an information person at a non-information company can get tough. The value of information and the efforts of what goes into a manual or parts catalog of CD ROM is significant. Many unenlightened individuals have no concept of the process of moving from dark to light and even if they do understand how they learned something they may attribute the learning to their own prowess without regard for the individual who created that learning tool. I have said it before. Information technology is an enabler. Information use is the material of competitive advantage.
Are YOU a problem thinker The animals are getting slightly better around me. Fawn is still a bit of a problem to approach. She is soo skittery. She did let me touch her today.

It is really something different. The long necks and front legs set-back give them an interesting center of gravity. They buck and playfully kick while moving their necks in a weird undulation. It is a happy dance no doubt. We are starting to get more systematic on training the animals. It will be great if we can get them all halter trained this summer. It is 12 degrees in Berkshire this morning and we have a complete snow covering for the last two days. The llamas hunker down in their house and we have the water heater keepng their water liquid. We deliver them hay a few times a day and of course their precious grain. Will winter go away this year? I am
