Alma Park Alpacas is on the move

Actually  - we have completed our move and now are in the process of building our barn and new store.  We are about 10 minutes west of our old location.  We moved onto 38 acres of preserved farmland with a beautiful historic 1740's farmhouse, existing barn (will be used for hay and equipment storage) and wonderfully rich soil which is ripe for pasture. 

For those of you that have visited our old farm, you know what an issue our sandy soil was and we could never grow good pasture and the sand was hell at shearing and skirting/sorting the fiber. 

We have plans to have an expanded store (1500 sq ft), a fiber studio, huge barn with birthing and breeding stalls and an on site lab.

We should have the new barn ready in the next 6 weeks - so please give us a call to come by and see our progress!

In memory of . . . the death of Steve Jobs - Apple Founder

Apple - The Technology of my life © Rose Mogerman 2011

The media will look for all the possible dirt and skeletons in his closet.  They will try to find out the reason for his death.  I don't care about his personal life, I don't want to see it sensationalized - all I know is we lost a true genius today who was responsible for making the "technology of my life"©.  Rest in peace, Steve!!

2 trending topics on Twitter today:

One of his more inspiring quotes - a quote that sums up my personal beliefs:

“Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

And another that has special closeness to my heart as I try to stay true to myself and ignore the negativity.

"Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes... the ones who see things differently -- they're not fond of rules... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things... they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do."
