This site is dedicated to Betty MacDonald, and was setup for the fans of this great American writer, Betty MacDonald (1908-58). Betty was “the” author of The Egg and I, The Plague and I, Onions in the Stew and the Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle series of children’s books, among other works.

Enjoy this great, short video by a Betty MacDonald fan. Per Jake Wells, “The Bishop Farm Part two. After posting Part one I was invited up to the actual Dairy farm on Egg & I Rd Monday morning by Jerry W Bishop. This is one of the last dairy farms in Jefferson County owned by Gerald and Delores Bishop. I will be going back to the farm to shoot more of the land and hopefully more of the livestock. The wind kicked up pretty good and I was having a lot of technical issues this day. I hope you enjoy.”
