    Oh, I love me a good small town mystery! And a Red Tractor?? Now that is absolutely the cat’s meow in travel for this MJF Farmgirl #3109 aka Red Tractor Girl! So, what’s up???In Florida, one would worry about a sink hole opening up under the foundation. But the last photo of 3 men at the base of the structure is indeed very curious! BUt why would a tractor be brought to the scene? You must keep us in the loop on this mystery!

    Oh, I really want one of those! And it’s got a back hoe and a front end loader! And such a good size! I’m sure I could use one somewhere. I’ve always wanted one.

    Are you Gone Move The build to your Farm? It so cute!

  5. Judy Acker says:

    Do y’all have skunks up there?

  6. Karlyne says:

    I thought of skunks, too, but Lucille does seem a bit of over-kill for a skunk!

  7. Nan Roberts says:

    Plus, it’s red.

  8. Linda Rogers (sissarge) says:

    I love your Lucille, I also have one, I love the Orange Kubota!! I use mine a lot. Don’t have the backhoe, but do have the front end loader, and it is so handy. I think you may be hooking up a sewer line or a water line. Love the fancy little building!

      I had a booth at a county fair several years ago and across from me was the Kubota booth. I wandered over and came home with a Kubota and several attachments because they were offering one of those no interest loans. That was 4-5 years ago and it’s almost paid off. Interest adds up! I love my Kubota also. It gets used around here every day. I recently bought a fork lift attachment.

Have you ever wondered whether the money you spend ends up funding causes you oppose? Like an industry that hurts honey bees?

That’s the burning question posed by a new app called Buycott …

and it’s out to find the answer.


“A buycott is the opposite of a boycott,” explain the app’s socially conscious creator, Ivan Pardo. “Buycott helps you to organize your everyday consumer spending so that it reflects your principles.”


After you download the app (free from iTunes), you start “buycotting” by searching for and joining available campaigns—or creating your own—in order to establish a profile of your social conscience.

Then, you can scan a product’s barcode with the Buycott app and it will set out to determine what the product is and who owns it. Buycott will then trace the product’s ownership back to its original parent company and cross-check this company against campaigns that you care about, from homelessness to GMO foods and beyond.

Conflicts between a company and your campaigns will send up a red flag, helping you make an informed choice about how you spend your money.

Buycott already boasts over 100 campaigns and the list is growing. If your cause can’t be found, it’s quick and easy to add it. All you need is a goal and a list of companies that you know either support or undermine your cause.

    I’m in! Thanks for this great link for my iPhone! I have been asking myself so many questions about products since the GMO focus and the fire in Bangladesh! Leave it to apps to solve our daily questions. Thanks again Mary Jane for making our lives easier to live better.

    This sounds really good, I will have to try it.
    Thanks Mary Jane for researching it.
