Summer is pretty much here! It’s been an awesome start with my youngest graduating last Friday, family parties, and some big changes ahead. Life sure takes you in lots of new directions, doesn’t it? Loving the ride! Hope you’re having a great start to your Summer.


February 29th..a very special day…the 4th anniversary of Windchill’s passing

Sunday, February 26th, 2012

I can’t believe it’s February again. And this one’s a special one as you guys all know – it’s the true 4th anniversary of Windchill’s passing with a February 29th in it.

Many of us are planning remembrances of the little guy – many are lighting candles in his honor. If you do light candles in his honor, could you please take a picture and send it to us so that we can post. We’ll be posting the pics on the Raindance site and possibly on the forum if I can find a volunteer to help with that – I have never successfully posted pictures on here that I can remember!

You can email the pictures to me: jeff@raindancehorses.com and I’ll try to get them loaded as they come in but I can’t promise for sure because of the intermittent internet at the place I live currently. If not, I will get them uploaded in the next day or two to show you all each other’s memorial candles.

Your friend,

Jeff Tucker

Wow. Some very good reading.

Some very interesting reading. This may help some who don’t understand what’s occurring with someone they think they know.

Integrity can be neither lost nor concealed nor faked nor quenched nor artificially come by nor outlived, nor, I believe, in the long run, denied. (Eudora Welty)

Howdy friends!

Spring is here…

Sunday, March 27th, 2011

March 27, 2011: Wow, the first day of Spring has come and gone, amazing… lots of changes in store this year for this farm… I’m plugging away on Windchill’s book, the first two chapters are in rough draft stage. I didn’t anticipate it being this difficult to go back and re-live that time period, that’s been a tough part of this. I’ll be glad when it’s far enough along I don’t have to re-read the original blog posts. Sometimes I read them and think maybe this time it will end differently. So far it hasn’t though. Work has been insane – a lot of hours, a lot of time spent on the road to go to meetings and put ourselves on the firing line yet again… and a lot of stress. Someday I hope to find a place I can escape that stress. Everybody needs that, don’t they? I hope this finds you doing very well. Gonna go pour myself some more coffee – that will help me relax!

Don’t worry, it won’t change me…

I’ve been reluctant to share this news with the world – I wanted to avoid all the sudden ‘friends’ coming around. Anyway, I received a personal email from a Nigerian prince oil executive attorney relative of a deceased dictator who asked for my assistance getting a significant sum of money out of their country. I know what you’re thinking – and I was skeptical as well. So I emailed back and asked “why me?” Well they wrote back that they got my name from an associate so obviously it’s true. Armed with that verification and their promise that I will receive a share of the dollars just for sending them my bank account info – I happily turned in my resignation and am spending the day running up my credit card limits!

Jeffrey L Tucker’s Predictions for 2011

Jeffrey L. Tucker’s Predictions for 2011

* Apple will be in the news for everything and anything even if they don’t do a thing.
* North Korea will make amazingly belligerent statements that would get them their ass kicked if they were a kid on the playground.
* For those wanting financial advice – the stock market will have some wild fluctuations – up or down. Please be careful with information this powerful.
* Oil will have wild fluctuations which will be explained as: increased demand (huge increases at pump), diminished demand (slight decrease at pump), increased supplies (slight decreases at pump), decreased supplies, an oil executive has sneezed (again, huge increases), speculators, and refineries that are closed for cleaning .
* My daughter Amanda will graduate from high school.
* Facebook will be mentioned over and over and over until we stop using it because we’re sick of that.
* There will be speculation that Raindance Farms will be acquired by Jessica Simpson, Josh Groban, Justin Bieber or Martha Stewart. Later investigation will indicate I was the unnamed source and that I was bored that day.
* Rumors of unidentified flying object crashes will be run rampant in the South Range area. Suspiciously, when asked about his AR.Drone, Jeffrey L. Tucker will not have any comment.
* iPad 2 and iPhone 5 will make for Christmas all year long.
*I will take some time off from the office finally and will receive thank you cards from the staff.
* It will be yet another year of experts. Which is part of the reason I don’t post much these days…
* Change will be good.
