The pic of chicken houses at night is great but my DH likes the tractor best. :) Good luck in everything, and thank you for getting them to fix the LINK and the comments problems.

Was thrilled to find a blog that gives nonfarmers an detailed and interesting account of life on a family farm today. As more consumers find corporate agribusiness unresponsive to their needs, the family farm has greater importance than ever. Just discovered your great blog and have added it to my bookmarks.

Glad they got the comment's section working again. I know I could e-mail you directly, but this is more like visiting at the small town coffee shop. It lets everyone know whats up. Those grower meetings can be real helpful. The feed company we used to use (back when we had livestock) would hold them twice a year. Once in the winter, and once in the summer. They usually had information that we normally didn't get from other sources, plus it was a good way to visit with other producers. I guess the kids are just about ready to get out of school. Most of the schools around here have already held graduation, and the other kids are down to the last days of classes. I'm not sure of how far behind they became due to snow days. We had quite a bit of snow, but it didn't seem to be as bad as it had been in previous years. I went to the cemetary on Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. There were a number of folks out visiting, and leaving flowers on the graves. I didn't buy any flowers this year to leave at the section for the Civil War soldiers. They have a nice monument for them, along with a special section for them. I know that not all of the local Civil War veterans are buried there, but there are a number of them. One of my friends has made a project of locating the graves of Civil War soldiers, and getting markers from the VA for the ones without one. I don't know how many David has put up over the years, but it has been several. Jim, good idea about getting assistance for retraining. I know of many people who have had work related injuries, and then assume that they will never have to work another day in thier life. Most of them end up in a worse position than if they had gone for vocational rehabilitation and gone into a different career. Good luck with the rehab and classes. Kevin Hi Joel!

I grew up in Iowa, so I\'m quite familiar with farm culture. I live in Los Angeles now, so at the same time, I\'m quite a bit removed. Thanks for taking me back to my roots! Very interesting.
