Rod's Duck Farm - Ducks & Peanut Butter Moon Pies!

The duck in the front is a duck whistle ..... $1.70, Made in Bali, from my Mother. It is quite the quacker.
WalMart started selling Peanut Buttter Moon Pies. Then they mostly quit doing that. Then, at the Fayetteville Arkansas WalMart store, they reappeared. Cassandra, one of the Machine  Shop students, rediscovered the Fayetteville Moon Pies! There is no bettter day than to have a Duck Whistle and Peanut Buter Moon Pies.
Quack, Quack!

Rod's Duck Farm - Brave New Duck World!!!

World of Ducks (Click Here)

New York has declared a world of ducks!
Junior Duck Stamp Program - To Promote Education and Creativity

The Federal Junior Duck Stamp Program is an art and science curriculum designed to teach youngsters about environmental science and habitat conservation. Across the country, students from kindergarten through grade 12 pick a species of waterfowl, learn about its natural history and habitat needs and then paint it. For the contest, students compete in one of four grade categories: K-3, 4-6, 7-9, and 10-12. The national winner receives a $2500 prize.

For information about the program in New York State, contact:

Rod's Duck Farm .... duck or fox?

I'm a Mallard, live in a large pond full of guppies and tadpoles. Human beings stop by in the mornings and evenings to toss pieces of bread along the bank of the pond.

Rod's Duck Farm Spider Removal Technique

Brown Recluse Spider - How to remove it from somebody's ear - the Rod's Duck Farm Way
1. Get a flashlight. Look in the ear.
2. Get some water. Pour it into the ear.
3. Get tweezers. Grasp a spider leg and pull.

Leta Mae had "something" in her ear. She wanted it evicted. With a flashlight, I looked in the ear and saw two spider legs and said, "Hmmmmmmmmm."

Remembering the Itsy Bitsy Spider, I instructed Leta Mae to turn her head in such a way that the ear canal was pointing up. Pouring water into the ear did not seem to do much good so I located some tweezers (a manicure kit is a good place to look for tweezers). I was concerned that I would have to fight with the spider and his leg might break off but apparently the spider was sufficiently comatose from being drowned with the water - he came out like a piece of lint.

Rod's Duck Farm wonders .... Is a duck watching you?

Quack (X) here to see the story
Anatidaephilia is an obsessive love of ducks. Does it bother you that a duck might be watching?


Anatidaephobia - The Fear That You are Being Watched by a Duck

On the other hand, if you love watching ducks, that is See-Ducktion!

Rod's Duck Farm - Is it a Mudpuddle without Water?

A pothole is just a pothole UNLESS it rains. Then it is a mudpuddle, a duck sanctuary. Soubriquet has recorded this truth in graphic format at his blog (link below).

Sometimes, safe drinking water is in short supply. That's a problem for people and ducks. According to Forbes magazine, the World Health Organization claims that "polluted water is the world's deadliest foe, killing 1,400 people a day." AND I might add, no telling how many DUCKS!!!
Of course 1,400 people a day might be rather inconsequential. After all, 1400 a day is only 5 million a year, not enough to keep the world population from its continued expansion.

In conclusion, little kids and ducks have the right idea. If you see a mudpuddle, jump in with both feet!
Quack, Quack!

Rod's Duck Farm posts the RDG Duck Song suggestion

Click (X) Here to Hear the Duck Song

RDF is Rod's Duck Farm. Superceding RDF is RDG. You'd think RDG would be Rod's Duck Goose perhaps. But RDG usually has nothing to do with Ducks or Geese. RDG is a Mule kind of thing. I guess because Mules are strong and can pull a heavy load. Anyway, RDG says listen to the Duck Song. Click or Kick the link.
Quack, Quack!

Rod's Duck Farm says, "Moby Duck Strikes Again!"

Remember back in 1992 when a bunch of rubber ducks fell off a freighter in the Specific Ocean? And then folks started thinking they would use the "duck flotilla" to track ocean currents? And then there was the Duck Farm post of Saturday July 28, 2007 about a giant rubber duck in Europe that Steve called Moby Duck?
Well, James Allen has been keeping up with ducks and notes that Donovan Hohn has managed to write a book about the "duck flotilla" entitled Moby Duck.
Just don't get "Moby" confused with "The Mob". "Moby" does not mean "sort of like the Mob". It doesn't even mean "Missouri by" or "more buy".
Moby Duck is just further evidence that if people spent more time thinking about ducks, they'd spend less time thinking about other things.
Quack, Quack

Rod's Duck Farm - Basking in Baskets

From Brad Whitewolf ......... alias Duck Trazy!
These are marvelous baskets. The feathers are are made of wood shavings, delicately colored and placed. Each basket could hold either a very large duck egg or else a sizeable goose egg. Lookout Easter Bunny - Ducks are on the loose!

Rod's Duck Farm - Spy Secrets to Mind Control

Mind Control is especially important in these times of terrorism, hate crimes, bigotry, sexual perversions, radiation leaks, weapons of mass destruction, explosive devices, drunk drivers, and bullies.
To discover the secret you will have to decode the following passage:
Joe the Duck was waddling down the street near the intersection of 4th and Grandview. He looked at the clock on the tower of the square, just visible through the trees between the Markham building and the Watson Bank. It was ten past ten. Joe was glad the tower was well lit because the night lights from the Watson Bank were filling his retinas with photons that, one way or another, were released from a power plant. Joe wondered where the power plant might be and whether or not it was coal, gas, nuclear, or solar. Since the deregulation, power had become an item more easily traded between power companies. The electricity may have come from a plant in New York, California, or somewhere in between. Power began to consume his mind. Suddenly Joe had an epiphany - all power is solar. Coal and gas come from organic material that grew as a result of sunlight. Coal and gas are just stored up bits of solar energy! But how about nuclear? Two thoughts came to mind .... one being that uranium is just leftover star material; the other being that the uranium had to be processed and refined using power from coal and gas plants - solar processed uranium.
OK ........... you have completed step one. Congratulations, you have read the paragraph and perhaps have already figured out the secret. If so, you are now an all-knowing creature.
Otherwise, I will write the actual secret to mind control. It is this:
If people spent more time thinking about ducks, they'd spend less time thinking about other things!
Quack, Quack!

Rod's Duck Farm Re-Reports the Conspiracy

Just in from Rod's Duck Farm Field Correspondent, Dave Renfro - aquanaut and CIAyacker:

Quack, Quack!

Whac-a-Mole vs Guacamole - So easy a cave man can do it!

A variation/combination - Duck Duck Goose & Whac-a-Mole
So easy a cave man can do it?
The difference between guacamole and Whac-a-Mole is this:
Guacamole is AVACADO
Whac-a-Mole is AVOCATION
Wack Dux is pretty marvelous. It was sent to Rod's Duck Farm by Thomas Leech.
Note the sign above the game that says "Duck" changes to "Goose" when the animal poppoing from the hole changes from duck to goose.
Even better, you don't have to push Control-Escape-H-D to hit the Duck and Control-Escape-H-G to hit the Goose.

Quack, Quack!

Who put the luck in cluck? Why does cluck look like duck?

For My Friend Dave

In the clearing stands a boxer

And a fighter by his trade

And he carries the reminders

Of ev'ry glove that layed him down

Or cut him till he cried out

In his anger and his shame

"I am leaving, I am leaving"

But the fighter still remains

Here's a Manufacturing/Agriculture Observation
