My father in law is a farmer and I really enjoy going down there and being on the place. I have an office job, but it seems that being outside and moving is worth a lot more in life satisfaction. Good luck with everything. I really enjoyed your site. My father in law is a farmer and I really enjoy going down there and being on the place.

I know there have been several sherriffs here with no law enforcement education at all. Can't say that for the current one, seems he just doesn't want to do anything but collect taxes. My younger brother looked at aquaponics for an ag project in high school, but decided against it. Seemed very interesting to me. I've considered building ponds and raising catfish if the chicken thing doesn't develop. Maggie, It is good to see a company giving back a little. Mahindra seems to be more interested in us small farmers and organic growers than the bigger companies. Small farmers need all the help they can get. Keep those chickens and guineas safe and keep checking back! Phil, Thats great! You'll lopve the goats. Goats have such personality. I'm glad that things are working out for you. I'll keep you in mind if I'm ever in W Va. and you keep us in mind if you're ever in KY. I'll try my best on the goat advice, just give me a shout with questions you might have. Make sure you keep checking back! Marci, Glad you enjoy, please keep coming back! Meat, Thanks for the tip. I'll keep it in mind. Thanks for reading! Kevin,

Thanks for the tip on the scholarships. It is nice to see a company give back a little. Sorry to hear about your pup. I know what you mean about the fast drivers. I have free range chickens and some guinea hens and I fear for there lives any time they get near the road. Your kids look awful sweet and I too hope they retain an interest in farming. We need all the small farmers we can get. Take care and keep plugging away...it\'s the little things that make life interesting maggie Nice blog. Thanks for the tip on the scholarships.

The one we have here is more interested in catching drug trafficers and minor traffic offenses than they are the hoods who rob the area blind. I've been fortunate, I've never had a break in, but a lot of my neighbors have. It is at the point people are having to lock the doors even when they are at home. (We had one man have a crook break in to his house. He was coming home from work and a neighbor saw a strange car at his house and called him. When he got home the car split and left one guy in the house. He got a gun and held him for the Deputies. The crook was out of a city about an hour away, and claimed that a friend of his had dropped him off to look for work. At trial he admitted they came out to burglarize the place, the driver had already "cased" the place, and split when he knew they were caught.) I don't know about Kentucky, but here in Missouri anyone without a criminal record, a history of mental illness or other legal restrictions can run for Sheriff. All they have to be is over 21, a resident of the county, and have the money to pay the filing fee. We have been fortunate in having a number of police officers and deputies who have ran and been elected. The biggest problem is most of them end up becoming administrators and do not do any actual field work. The one we have now makes a point of coming out for the press whenever he has a major crime, but he isn't the one doing the investigation. Most of his deputies are very good, but some of them are the south end of a north bound horse. I have been looking into Aquaponics, and am thinking about trying it on a limited basis. (Aquaponics is the raising of fish in an integrated system with Hydroponics. It can be done in a greenhouse, but in warmer climates can be done outdoors. I am going to try it at first in my garage. I should have enough ventilation to not have many problems with excess humidity.) Well, just keep at it! Sometimes it feels like we keep on pushing that boulder up the mountain, hopefully one day we can get it up on top and it won't roll back down! Kevin Joel, Family & Friends,
