Finished the Squid Game on Netflix. Great show. It really goes into desperation and predatory lending. I will not be surprised if this does not become reality. It hits close to home. What will lenders do when we all owe them money and can not pay it?

I started out this year with a few chickens and rabbits. We had no where to put them. Then my wife discovered a diamond in the rough. We know have 4 pigs, more chickens, farm dogs(to protect the chickens from predators), and turkeys. I never thought I would be a farmer. I even took a test in high school that said I should go in that direction. I don't know how successful we will be, but we are doing it.
So, I was reading headlines and someone had an opinion piece. It read that Yes, Halloween is a rip off of Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Isn't that the Hollywood way? Texas Chainsaw is a "rip off" of Psycho. I would say it pays homage to and that is storyline can be altered. All are based in some way on Ed Gein. He was a serial killer from Wisconsin. He inspired the book Psycho. I would say all movies are worth watching. They all do something original to scare audiences.

It is out. I have not seen the movie but want to. It looks fun. News outlets are already declaring it a bomb. How? Covid is not over. A lot of people are scared to go to a theater. Streaming? How would they know about dollar amounts? Have they a formula? I'd rather see it in a theater. I still refuse to pay for HBO Max. I don't even watch all that I subscribe to. Disney is only so so. Mainly for tweens and younger. The shows have not impressed me. Hulu does not offer much. You'd think Disney would flood it with 20th Century films. I look but nothing catches my attention. Netflix has a lot of new things. I just need more time. Amazon is another that does not have much going on. Luckily, we do not pay for all of them. Hulu, Apple +, Paramount are free due to other services. Disney was paid for in a 3 year purchase. I don't know if I will continue. Not much for me. I do have one daughter who does watch it. Amazon is part of Prime. We use that more than the streaming network.
We lost another animal. This time it was a duck. It was a baby and in a cage outside. There were 2 together. A raccoon got to one of them. It reached through the bars and ripped it's upper beak off. It was still alive, but we put it down. Piece of advice, only use Hardware cloth. Chicken wire is to keep them in, but will still be open to some predators. Watch for diggers. Unless it has a solid bottom, they will just tunnel in. Motion lights only scare them for so long.

I keep seeing the previews and I really don't want to see this movie. It looks like it lacks a story or even a reason for being. Adding Carti B to it makes it even less desirable. Maybe they should have ended on the last one. I will probably wait for streaming, unless my kids want to see it. Missing it would not bother me.
I started digging trenches. Eventually, we plan to bury flashing. I also found some cinder blocks. I put Fabric Cloth down on the floor of one coop. Now a predator can not dig under. We are keeping the animals out of the run until it is fortified. The chickens are getting along with the ducks. I have not introduced the rooster into the pack. One day I might. Today, I looked up calves. I found a place that sells them for $100. We still need a fence and a system to keep out predators.

When chicken farming, take predators seriously. We have lost many chickens. Even if you have a strong coop, you need to prepare for diggers. When you do, do not leave any weak spots. Some predators are relentless. One went from one side to another. They dug and found metal. They dug some more and kept digging until they found the one weak spot. Motion lights only work for so long. It sure did not deter this predator. It took out a rooster and a hen. Maybe there was more than one. Who knows! Just remember, fortify your coops to protect your chickens!

I saw Mortal Kombat last week. It was okay. I guess my expectations were high. It did not rise to that level. With a martial artist like Joe Taslim, you'd think the movie would have some great fighting. I think they were more concerned with showing their special skills. As for a tournament, there wasn't one. If you want to see a great martial arts film with Joe Taslim, watch The Raid.

The other day, I saw a story where Wilbur Ross, Mr. Magoo, said that the virus in China may help the US to get jobs back. What is wrong with these people? Don't they care anything about the people that are getting sick and dying? No, they are worried about money. Such a sad world we live in.
Please pray for the people getting this virus. They did not ask for it. It is in no way an opportunity to make money.
