non farmy post

This post has nothing to do with our farm or with wine - but is something I've been "at" for a long while now - today I tested for and got my green belt in The Shaolin Kempo Martial Art - the test was difficult but satisfying when I was finished --- now I'm going to take a nap : ) and if any of the animals around here get out of line they better watch out ...

if you are wondering what the ranking system is it's the following

white - yellow - orange -purple - blue - blue-stripe - green - green - green stripe -brown- brown - 3rd degree - brown - 2nd degree -brown - 1st degree - black - black -1st degree - black -2nddegree - black- 3rd degree - etc to tenth degree (my teacher is 4th degree and that's pretty amazing)
