The Hagen Homestead will be a Nielsen Family!

This is kind of funny - we, who watch virtually zero broadcast television, have been chosen to be one of the households who participates in the Nielsen ratings. In a couple weeks, we will be asked to keep track of all of our television viewing and then send in the information so that it can be compiled for the national Nielsen ratings. Don't be too surprised if in a few weeks you see an article in the newspaper about a sharp decline in TV viewership.

The Ballad of Sir Ger...

..the Tuesday Knight of the Quilting Table.

The fearless Sir Ger was set to face the vicious French seams,
who were known for being difficult so it seemed.

He cut them and sliced them with the aid of a friends' hands,
and simultaneously bound them tightly in a cord of three strands

(being familiar with Ecclesiastes 4:12, "Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.").

And thus it was, when evening came,
Sir Ger had restored peace and order to the realm once again.

And sew ends the tail of Sir Ger, the Tuesday Knight of the Quilting Table,
and may we all learn a lesson from this fable.

~Composed by the most high minstrel and patriarch of the Hagen family

God bless,
