I found this quote in a Monsanto ad and I really like it:
"Our land is more than
our livelihood,
It is our legacy"  


I have started the 2011 blog and have left the 2010 and 2009 up for those who are interested.

Harvesting 2010

We would like to thank all
the men and women who
are risking their lives
each and every day
to keep us safe.
After Sept. 11, we all
know how fragile  this
freedom can be. 
May God protect those
who are serving in troubled
areas around the world!   May
His angels surround them and
bring them home safely!  



"People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf "

        - George Orwell

(thank you to a childhood friend, David Lockwood, for suggesting this quote.  It is very appropriate and something we need to remember every day as we read those sobering statistics!)

I personally can not stand Garth Brooks.  Jim and I paid huge money to attend
 one of his concerts.  During the concert he made his wife Sandy come out on
stage...she was clearly highly uncomfortable doing so..and he
went into this long tribute to her being the "love of his life" and told us
how she pushed him and supported him..sometimes working three
jobs...admitting he would never have made it without her.  Very touching.  Until
you learn later that even then he was screwing Trisha Yearwood.  I wonder if that
wasn't why Sandy was so uncomfortable standing there listening to him lie.   He
disgusts me. 
However, I do like some of his songs.  This song "The Dance" is one I like.
There are so many times in life that a person has to make choices. 
 In hindsight, a person sometimes regrets the choice that was made...but
 often if you had gone a different direction, you would have missed "the dance".   
"The Dance"

Looking back on the memory of
The dance we shared 'neath the stars above
For a moment all the world was right
How could I have known that you'd ever say goodbye

And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain
But I'd have had to miss the dance

Holding you I held everything
For a moment wasn't I a king
But if I'd only known how the king would fall
Hey who's to say you know I might have changed it all

And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain
But I'd have had to miss the dance

Yes my life is better left to chance
I could have missed the pain but I'd have had to miss the dance
