Jerry came up with his own "brand" a couple of years ago while we were still living in the city, the Lazy J Bar C which you can see on my header picture. (I made him that barbed wire sign thingy for his birthday a couple of years ago.) The J is for Jerry and the C is for our last name and he embellished it from there. It seemed like the right thing to call our little place the Lazy J Bar C Farm and thus my blog! ;-)

"A Quiet Corner" came from the area in which we live. Living here in "the quiet corner" of Connecticut. I prefer simple!...:)JP

Michaele said...

Glad to get to know you better : ) You have had a very full and interesting life.

TexWisGirl said...

you are so funny! loved getting to know you better! and laughed at the 'eating out' :)

i named our ranch run*a*round because it is a 9-sided rather round house, plus buying it, we got quite the runaround. since 95% of what i post (except for barns and fences, these days)is right from here, made sense to name my blog the r*a*r ranch report. :)

Great to learn lots of things about you...the birds thing made me laugh...mine would be rats LOL.

Blog header came to mind because I want my entire life to be all of Jesus and nothing of me....and hopefully my blog depicts regardless of some commentors of late.

You are a very beautiful person...inside and out.

My blog name, which took awhile to come up with, is because of my dream to get back to homesteading (the way I was raised), and my addiction to coffee.

dr momi said... son put Angry Birds on my Christmas present Kindle Fire. That is ADDICTING :-)

Candy C....where does the Lazy part come in???? :-) I love the sign in your header!

A Quiet Corner....when I read the name of your blog -- something inside me just settles down. It's a geat name, and yes, simple is best. husband would say I'm always doing something new. lol.

TexWisGirl....I'm so glad I asked the question. I knew from your picture that your house was "round", but I never put the name of your blog with that! Duh!

Treasures Evermore....I LOVE the name of your blog!

Stephanie.... :-), I thought you just did all your chores really fast LOL! If I followed that thinking my blog would be named Caffeine-Free Diet Coke Homestead!!

Mama Pea said...

I wanted to start a blog to keep a journal of what was happening around our homestead and also to record (at the urging of our daughter) some of the stories from when we first moved up here to Minnesota and lived a bit of a "rustic" life. I love anything "home grown" from food to hand work to critters so "A Home Grown Journal" became my blog name.
