  • Actual happiness looks pretty squalid in comparison with the overcompensations for misery. And, of course, stability isn’t nearly so spectacular as instability. And being contented has none of the glamour of a good fight against misfortune, none of the picturesqueness of a struggle with temptation, or a fatal overthrow by passion or doubt. Happiness is never grand. - Aldous Huxley, Brave New World
  • Education
    "Must we always teach our children with books? Let them look at the stars and the mountains above. Let them look at the waters and the trees and flowers on Earth. Then they will begin to think, and to think is the beginning of a real education." -David Polis
  • "Above all, do not lose your desire to walk: every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness; I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it... but by sitting still, and the more one sits still, the closer one becomes to feeling ill... Thus if one just keeps walking, everything will be all right." -Soren Kierckgaard
  • Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. - Albert Camus
  • How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. Annie Dillard

Yes! Cluck on!


Yay for chickens on Spring Street!!!


Yes!  Any plans for chickens on Westminster?


I've seen a lot of happy kids in my time, but your children are always smiling, so self confident and just a joy to be around... Love coming to see what the Shutty clan are up to today... Always a new adventure...


The photo of Levi and Zappy is so cute, it's as if he was thinking, "It just doesn't get much better than this!"


That is so sweet, thanks Heidi!


Yes, Si Levi have both fallen deeply in love.


Where's Osama the rooster?


Believe me, Jason, I am very worried that there might be an Osama in the bunch.  If so, hell end up in someones stew pot quickly!

Good to hear from you, hope you the family are doing well.


Michelle, look at those sweet little chicks, how could any of them grow up to be an Osama. Good luck if Zappy or Genevieve are roosters!! Somehow I picture you driving to Camp with two extra passengers!


Oh so sweet! I agree with Nana, that photo of Tiny is so thoughtful and he looks as if he has found his bliss! I am so happy that you guys have chicks! I love the names too.
