The chickens are back together. They are not pecking each other. But they won't leave the hen house. We have a dog run connected to the coop,so they will be safe. I can't blame them for being afraid. We won't be letting them out into the fenced area until we put up a 6 foot fence. Hopefully it will be high enough that dogs can't jump it.

Candy Apple Jelly
4 cups apple juice
1/2 cup red-hot candies
1 package powdered fruit pectin
4 1/2 cups sugar
In a large saucepan,combine the apple juice, candies , and pectin. Bring to a boil over med heat heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar; return to a full rolling boil. Boil for 2 minutes. Stirring constantly.
Skim off any foam. Ladle hot mixture into jars, leaving 1/4 head space. Run a plastic knife around inside of jar to remove any air bubbles. Wipe the rim of the jar. Place lids and rings on the jar.
A lot of recipes tell you to process in a water bath for 5 minutes. I just make sure my lids are tight and turn upside down on a towel til cooled. The heat from the jelly seals the lid. Always check to make sure your lids seal.
Hope you try this recipe . It,s really good. Have a great weekend.

The museum is in Lone Pine. This town was used as the back drop for filming silent westerns ,as well as western B movies. Hollywood found the mountain range could work for so many areas from around the world.
This saddle was made by hand. All the silver was detailed by hand. It took 60 years to make. Unfortunately the maker died before he could finish. His son finally finished it. I can't remember his name or find the paper I wrote it on. I do remember that he made saddles for Roy Rogers and Gene Autry.
This is one of the first electric camera ever used.
All the outdoor scenes were filmed around Lone Pine.
The entire movie of Gunga Din was filmed in the valleys and mountains behind the town of Lone Pine. They build a complete set. Including a fortress and Temple. Many of the local people were hired as stunt people and extras. The next few picture are items from the movie.
The display for Roy Rogers was very interesting. I really learned a lot about the man. His first wife died when his oldest daughter was 6. He was a single father of two girls for several years before marrying Dale. Between his kids, her kids, their kids, and the ones they adopted, they had 9 kids total. He was always fun loving. They showed several pictures of the whole family on a slide show. Unfortunately I wasn't able to take pictures of them.
This creature is from the movie Tremors. There were several other displays from the movie. But as you can see the lighten was bad. So they didn't turn out.
This display speaks for it self. Some of the other modern movies film there were, Lost in Mexico with Brad Pit, Star Trek number5, and Transformers. I could relate with Iron man and Transformers since they also filmed parts of the movie were my husband works. I just wish we could of gotten closer to the film sight.
For some strange reason, I was surprised to see that parts of this movie was filmed in the area.
This is but a fraction of what is in the museum. I hope you enjoyed this little taste of it.

1 pound of beef. We used our moose meat.
one package of taco seasoning
one small chopped onion
4 cups of cheese. You can use more if your like us and love cheese.
Now we start laying.Get out a baking dish. Spray with a nonstick spray. Add a little bit of the sauce. Just enough to lightly cover the bottom. Lay out a layer of tortillas . Using a spoon lightly spread sauce on top of them Then add your burger mixture. Next comes your corn ,then your cheese. Repeat the layering till you get the amount of layers you want,or run out of food. For the top layer you will want tortillas, sauce , and cheese . In that order. If you end up with to much enchilada sauce in your pan. Just use a spoon to dip it out. The sauce should be 1/4 of the way up the pan. Any more is a little to much. Bake at 350 for 30 to 40 minutes depending on your oven.
If you like it hot. Just add some hot chilies to the meat mixture after its cooked. I wouldn't add layers of the peppers to it. Unless you really love to burn. You can also use the hot enchilada sauce. Unfortunately my daughter doesn't care for hot. So we just add hot sauce to ours. My family gave it a 9 out of 10. I gave it a 10.
