Cranston's Farm

This is a project I started (in BASIC) way back in the early 80’s and put aside for many years. I recently found the original code, and after having a good laugh decided it would be an excellent project to re-write in Quick. The concept is simple – you’re an 18th century farmer dropped onto a forty acre/field grant of land and you have 50 years to try to survive and if possible thrive.

Since mom is deathly allergic to anything with fur (and the kids are too, but they'd never admit to it), we had limited choices. Fish are fine but they don't seem to to enjoy cuddling very much, and birds are too damn noisy. We finally settled on a Bearded Dragon - silent, sedate and requires little or no parental intervention. Bearded Dragons are native to
