I am one of the newly converted and am gorram proud to be a browncoat. I a friend turned me on to Serenity and when I found out the entire Firefly series was available I immediately ran out and obtained a copy. Damn those gao yang jong duh goo yang execs over at FOX for dropping this show!!! It is good to know that Serenity/Firefly will go on forever. To paraphrase the Captain , "Love keeps her in the air when she oughta fall down. Makes her home."

Does anyone know if the Captain monitors these waves any? Sure would be nice to hear what he is up to.

Welcome ScottB.

I am a newbie myself and everyone has been very warm and welcoming. FollowMal will be along in a awile with a shiny browncoat, and if you are very lucky - there will be strawberries and mudders milk.

I hear that the Captain has been known to surf a few sites. He would be silly not to come here and listen to all the lovely things we have to say!

Course, that could just be me wishing.

BTW - were I you, I'd be kissing the friend that got you hooked. Bigger favor has never been done!

Nathan doesn't know it yet, but I am his one true love! Is that weird?

Wellcome aboard, grab a mudders milk, sit back, and relax. Nathan does not as far as I can tell post to these forums but tabs are kept on his doings via links to many interviews from gala premier events and so forth.

May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.


Welcome to the site ScottB! Glad to have you aboard.

You friend definitely did you a big favor when they introduced you the our little 'verse. You wanna repay them? Then you turn some more people on to the show. Have a viewing party if you can. Hand out fliers (you can find some shiny ones here: http://the11thhour.home.att.net/ ). Talk the show up to anyone who will listen. We got where we are today by word of mouth. It seems that if we are to keep flyin' it is up to us browncoats.

Thanks for giving the show a chance Scott. Now get out there and share the joy you have found w/ others.

Keep flyin'!

Howdy ScottB. Welcome to our little Haven in the black :) Ain't nothing shinier than knowing the signal's still spreadin'. I'm sure you'll find the 'Coats are some of the shiniest people in the 'verse (not to mention so gorramn pretty :) Everyone has always been quite shiny and welcoming since I first came aboard ranting and raving, just wanted to pass the favor along.

Keep the faith, spread the word, and know we'll all be holding the line 'till Mal gets back.

Welcome here, we're weird.

I like to remind people that if you want more you need to convert people and get them to do the same, make the DVDs sell and just spread the joy. Consider yourself reminded.

Ahoy, ScottB, and welcome to our growing world.

With over 20,350 'coats we're having a lengthier chow line than most of us would like, but there's a pretty good spread on the galley table. Strawberries, always, and a nearly continuous supply of Mudder's Milk. Hot cheese. Wife soup. Fresh bao. Tomatoes. New-picked rosemary. Mangos. Chocolate cake. Brownies. Protein in several colors, but tonight it's the real thing: burgers and dogs, with real buns.

Please try not to step on the ShipsCat or into her dish.

When FollowMal gets through in the Captain's bunk she'll probably have a minute to issue your virtual browncoat.

Well don't that make a person feel all warm and fuzzy-like. Feels good to be home. I may need a little help though...I can't seem to do it. I haven't watched disc 4 of Firefly yet because I don;t want to have to tell myself that htese are the last 3 episodes. I know I am going to watch the entire series again (and again, and again) but it is very difficult.
Thanks to all for the heartfelt welcomes.
Keep the signal going strong!

That many huh? Think maybe everyone would be willing to donate ten bucks? Then I might be able to save my grandmother's farm, or at least a significant part of it.

Too bad it would never happen, I love that place.

Yeah, chris. Loved my g'parents' farm, too. Corn so high you could hide all day.
Strawberries red among the green leaves and white flowers.
Chicken-house, all warm and bird-y and egg-y.
Irrigation hoses.
The house itself.
All gone now, and many of the people, too, but the old photographs tell a story of a way of life.

It is requirement that you watch the 4th disk, then watch it all again 1 through 4, then watch Serenity, then watch all outtakes, deleted scenes, gag reels and commentaries. This is so you will be able to pepper your posts with references to all lines, and scenes.

It is only in this that you will become one with the 'verse.

Sort of like taking French, and knowing you have crossed the barrier of learning the language when you dream in French.

You gotta dream in 'Verse man! Watch the disk, take the plunge, and hand over a strawberry

Chris? Farm?? Where? is there a plan? I love a plan! I especially love it when a plan comes together!

One summer.
One mission.

Yes, it's a tale of woe, alright. I'm right there with ya. When that final note sounds on that final episode...well, you may get all choked up...really, there may be tears....

But hold, ScottB...you hold till Firefly comes back... or at least until you crank up that very first episode again and start enjoying it all over again...

I'm away for two days and everyone wants to know about the farm. I didn't think anyone would care, I mean no one seems to like farms anymore.

It's not a farm with livestock and it isn't a commercial farm. 34 acres most of them fields of ordinary grass. Three strawberry patches, a couple of rhubarb plants, one pear tree, two clumps of blueberries, one glass greenhouse, some bee hives, and such.

-

It's just a farm, and with it come farm memories, picking strawberries in summer, eating them in the patch, bringing them home, making strawberry rhubarb pie with them and the rhubarb next to the field. Catching frogs in the pond, climbing on the butternut tree which had a tire swing and a buoy swing.

My grandfather set up some hanging pipes in the front of the greenhouse that my sister and I could play like a musical instrument (with a tire iron instead of a mallet) the green house had various flowers, and tomatoes. There were the blueberries, there were the woods to wonder in, mostly there were strawberries actually, but I love every little bit of the place, even the deer that would eat the crops my grandfather grew for himself (I never liked squash anyway.)

Ever since my grandfather dies the place has fallen into disrepair, but now that my grandmother joined him the property belongs to my mother and my aunt. My aunt wants to sell the whole thing to land developers lot by lot to make the maximum possible profit.

When I think of it I think about picking strawberries as a kid, geraniums in the greenhouse and deer in the woods. The first thing she did after my grandmother’s funeral was take a walk around the place trying to figure out how to divide it into lots. (Literally first thing after, we held a reception at my grandmother’s house right after she was put in the ground and my aunt decided to figure out how to divide the place into lots right then and there.)

What’s needed to save it is money, and I honestly see no way in hell to get enough. On the other hand it’s going to end up either all sold by lots with the money split between my aunt and mother (in which case my mother will end up buying some of the lots herself with the money from the other lots,) or half sold by lots. Either way it means that to save some of it doesn’t require enough money to save all of it.

Is there a plan? No, I have no plan. I don’t even have a way. If someone could come up with a plan and share it with me that would be nice.

The shit will hit the fan around July, and I can’t think of any way to get together enough money to buy much of anything in that much time. If people would actually donate to help maybe I can make enough to save a little bit.

If you want to know what it looks like here it is:
http://members.lycos.co.uk/christhecynic/hpbimg/The%20farm.bmp

That’s a pretty crappy picture I know, you can’t even tell field of grass from strawberry field.

Here’s me labeling it:
http://members.lycos.co.uk/christhecynic/hpbimg/The%20farm%20labeled.b
mp


It looks very different from space you know, I mean I knew the strawberry patches were different sizes but until I discovered the beauty of satellite photos I didn’t know they were that different. Also I have to confess I’m not really sure that I marked the blueberries as being in the right place, I mean I think that’s where they are, and there is something dark in the picture there, but I’m kind of unclear when looking at it from that angle.

Then again my powers of perception have never been perfect, until I found a satellite photo last year I had no idea those trees were in a semicircle.

I need pictures of the way it looks on the ground, if it's gona be gone I need something the remember it by beyond cruddy sat photo.

Right now there are seven turkey vultures nesting in the trees right behind the largest strawberry patch, when someone mentioned that we’d never see them again because the trees would be gone this time next year it made me want to cry.

-

I don't know how much it would cost to save it, I do know that if people were willing to chip in a bit I could save some of it. I just didn't think, and I'm still not sure I do think, that people would be willing. I have nothing to offer, just that I'd have the farm safe, and feel good about the world and my place in it, and there'd be strawberries.

(A lot of people needed Firefly to make them associate strawberries with bliss, I'm not one of them.)

Though, like I said, it's fallen into disrepair, I think it takes two years to get the strawberry fields back on track, first you have to kill off the weeds that have grown up. (Not a problem, you just cover the whole feild over and anything that doesn't die from lack of sun get's baked to death, works better than weed killer.)

After the weeds are dead they are planted, and I think it's the year after that that when you actually have berries.

Dagnabbit, chris, can't get but a big black patch with a narrow green bottom border at either address.

Dunno how your problem s/b addressed in UK (short of aunt-through-engine, which I'm *not* suggesting), but can you get advice from your bank manager or whoever does farm credit there?

Could be some creative way to save the bulk of the place by farming it for real -- by you or a renter -- or there might be a conservation-oriented way to approach it.

I've read on BBC site about how bees and things are increasingly endangered by loss of very specific habitat items, whether it's flower species or the precise kind of physical niche needed for a nest.

I'm assuming the vultures aren't endangered -- but what else is in or near those trees? Is there something you could offer to grow, provide, or do on the property that would make it worth saving in someone else's eyes?

Sorry such density here. I tend to throw off ideas like a centrifuge when I get going.

Not that anyone really seems to care, but I was at the farm earlier today and snapped a few photos:

Here's the greenhouse, the glass is falling out but for the most part it seems ok:

The lighter grass is actually one of the strawberry fields, overgrown that it is:
