Or in other words, your always working on a project?

Im surprised any city would ban a few hens. Not long ago I saw a special about raising chickens in NY that encouraged people to have a few hens.

2 mares, it is all good. I've simply been dealing with some toxic people and I have enough problems of my own. You and I love funnin" with each other! So duh to me!

Yeah, apparently the chicken ban had been around awhile but some people decided they would like to try raising chickens on their own and got the law changed. I think it is very cool! I don't know about the ninja chickens, though. I wonder what kind of insurance you would need for that!

ill admit i was a little worried afterour brahma hen chased off the UPS guy LOL
but there quiet dont leave the yard and we dont have any roos so the neighbors are happy, i figure as long as they dont complain our egg machiens are safe...:P i just hate that with a lot our size on the outskirts of the town theres such a restriction...i can understand roosters but hens? you cant keep ANY swine within the town limits (not even a PBP even if you have 300 acres...if its in town, no piggies, you need a minimum of 10 acres for a single goat (and 1 acre per goat afterwards...but you can keep a horse on 2 acres...lol

silly rules and is potentially the biggest thing i want to avoid when i move, especially considering i already have a name and lots of plans for my little homestead in the coming years (of course thats if i ever get there lol)

but yes 2mares, your very right, theres always SOMETHIGN im working on :P
and ontop of it having mild ocd and adhd, ill generally fix it then come back to it 2 weeks later and fix it again because it wasnt perfect the first time or i forgot i did it :P
i also LOVE house fixit type stuff, my poor 400sqft apt is probably even smaller with the 3 different colors of paint over the last year.

If you come to Anderson County, take a ride along Route 61: Oak Ridge, Clinton, Norris, Andersonville and keep going on that same road into Union County up around Maynardsville. I happen to think it's really nice (and rural) between Norris and Maynardsville, and slightly beyond, and you will see farms plus you will be fairly close to the water. In Norris and Maynardsville there are state parks (Norris Dam State Park and Big Ridge State Park). Our state parks in Tennessee are free.

When I drove to Big Ridge one time this year I had to brake for wild turkeys that crossed the road in front of my car.

If you want to see some photos of the area. say so. But, I don't have farm photos because it's hard to pull over to the side of the road due to drainage type ditches that I typically see on the roads in front of farms here in Tennessee.

Don't know about high speed Internet in the area around Andersonville and Maynardsville. Norris has it.

It's spotty all around that area, even in Norris. You'd be surprised how many folks around Norris Lake don't have it. It depends on how many neighbors and how close. When I worked cable that area probably had the most requests. Lots of folks from The Midwest have vacation homes around there and are surprised to find they can't get cable.

I have a friend that works at Comcast and lives in Maynardville and can't get it. She's far from the only one, too.

My husband and I live in Athens TN. Its about an hour south of Knoxville. Actually it sits almost exactly between Knoxville and Chattanooga, so either way you go your an hour from lots of things to do and see. Athens is a nice little small town.The area around it is beautiful countryside and mostly farms. It definitely small town country living at its best. We are also looking for land right now to homestead on and maybe do an intentional community with shared tools, outdoor summer kitchen, barns, etc. I'd be glad to show you around the area and grab some lunch. annafee@bellsouth.net
