The perfect gift

These chicks are like little bumble bees ! Baby Quail!


The Perfect gift 
African violet centerpiece

Getting married? Having a baby shower? Why not use African Violets as your flower of choice? The beauty of this is you can display African violets on each table and your guests can take them home and also the bride or mom to be can take home the African Violets - It is not unusual for them to live 50 years or more with proper care, (they can actually live indefinitely possibly )  so this is a awesome lifetime gift to give a new bride or Mom  too as a wedding or at a baby shower!!! I grow African violets for my family to learn more check out our youtubes at the Pople Backyard Farm













Our little mini Rex Rabbit "Jack Rabbit" gives me so many laughs I never knew how much fun it would be to own a pet rabbit until I had Jack. Our other rabbits always stayed outside but Jack lives in the house with me. He loves to be held and has his own blankey that I let him play with during lap time when we play and watch TV together. A Rex Rabbit has nice lush fur and are so soft. When I first saw a Rex Rabbit I was in love! You can see more of Jack on our you tube channel at Pople Backyard Farm. 


I enjoy crocheting so much, everyday I sneak in a few minutes for a project. Love Granny squares? This is easy peezy project and great for Father's Day!

Why YOUTUBERS SHOULD PUT UP THAT SUPPORT BUTTON #FANFUNDING



The you tube question... Should you stick up that support button? I say YES! here is why... my concern of late was what if youtube started to ever charge for airtime? Shouldn't you start running your channel a little bit like a PBS show and depend on the your audience to help you .. after all if your show is any good you should have followers and like PBS because it is FREE ... Those that really love your show can send a gift once or twice a year to make it possible for you to stay on the air. Not necessarily to Make you RICH but to help you to offset any cost for say products you would buy - camera, internet, things for your show example if you have a cooking show perhaps it would offset the price of the food you are preparing rather than have it come out of your pocket.- Wouldn't those who are faithfully following hate to have you say I love doing the show but I just can't afford the internet, or supplies for the show and then you have to shut down. Like most ventures you should start as a labor of love.. but if your "talents" are worthy.. you will find that eventually your audience will want to gift you for helping them.. or to help with the support so you can continue and not shut down if you can't afford the  venture. Earlier this year Clay had a surprise medical experience we had no money coming in for a few months.. What could we do? Well, we shut the internet down .. Would this ever happen again .. probably not.. but things happen to all of us - cars break down, etc.. We have our channel up to help people for FREE!!!! We want to help people. But from my business background it is just smart business to give people the opportunity to give if they want to. My Dad a businessman, used to just love to take part and be a part of people's dreams by sending them money or a present, etc.. A principal he has taught his kids. I too, would love the opportunity to give to a show that was regularly helping my family. At this point my thought is to treat these support buttons like say PBS or the Policeman's Charity one - two times a year send them a "token" gift or more if you feel it is worthy. Put your fingers in your ears to all the beggars.. Remember YOU DO NOT KNOW these people personally. There are some people out there that will take every dime from you and not even feel ashamed. Plus if you are married always discuss this with your mate and don't be moved by emotion. Just plan say at Christmas or when you get a bonus you can send. I am writing this for the benefit of all. Finally, I should say.. Like PBS you NEVER, EVER, ... EVER have to send money.. these are projects that everyone chose to do and if their talents don't draw what they need they probably won't be on youtube long anyway and I don't think it is smart to finance ventures that aren't worthy. As the saying goes.. A man's gift makes room for him- business are developed. Sponsors looking for Charity type things Believe it or not there are actually people who are dying to give to something but are seasoned givers and don't give to things not worthy. Youtube is a up and coming (more than we see now) platform and I feel very strongly that it is smart to put that support button up.. so that you are "prepared" for the future - More and more talented people are on youtube .. more businesses are getting with the program and learning how to work social media. Etc.. Don't get discouraged.. you are going to make it! Just keep working with your followers and help people and be social and put out the best content you can and everything else will come together. If you get support for your channel put it right back into your channel to build it up as really .. how I feel is my channel is not mine but it is mine and my followers we make the channel what it is together so if you are like me it's really hard to receive from people but I have learned through the years that this was a selfish attitude of mine as I could really help more if I had the finances to do it and learned to humble myself and become a "servant" to my channel and my followers. Okay... not saying that this is what will happen.. but my thoughts seemed like they were worthy to consider. You tube may never ask us to pay for AirTime they may just have a free for all everyone is like a PBS if you can get people to pay to watch fine but all said.. ck out this article.. If you want to discuss more .. join me on you tube as I bring this topic up with my followers.

Okay.. Are they just trying to sell you make up or should you really toss it out? Honestly.. I don't know ... But I do have a thing about using my toothbrush for more than a day? I mean after all I do clean my teeth and all and then put that thing in my mouth again??? Anyway if you aren't sure what to do this article may help  click here
