Stopped for the home-made toasted coconut ice cream. Got this added treat!!!! Still trying to figure out if Superior Oil makes it easier for their “Passengers” to squeeze thru the Pearly Gates, or help them burn brighter in the other … Continue reading
Next time you look out the window, take a few seconds to let the image of what you see attach itself in your memory.
Take a walk down the street.
Mow the lawn.
Hop in the car and take the kids to school.
Go to the doctors.
Go grocery shopping.
Have lunch at your favorite restaurant.
Grab a quick cup of coffee at the coffee shoppe.
Have an ice cream cone.
Take in a movie.
Head on over to the mall.
Take a ride in the country.
Marvel at the new homes there; the ones in your town.
While you’re in the country,
look at the cows,
the dairy farms,
the corn fields,
the truck gardens,
the fruit orchards.
Open the window and take a whiff of fresh mowed hay,
The aroma of the animal farms(some, not all),
The expanse of endless views dotted by a farm house, barns and animals or crops.
What? You didn’t see it?
Could this be why?
As more productive farmland gets buried under aspalt, concrete or lawns, where will our food supply come from?
Doesn’t manner if you’re a meat eater or a vegan.
Civilization has it’s price.
[Cindy Dunnposted toFred Dunn — Dad, I can’t find your post about all of the US farmland getting paved, or I would have responded to that. From Heifer Inernational: 1 in 6 Americans live in poverty. But in Appalachia, more than 1 in 4 live in poverty. Seeds of Change, is a program Heifer is running right now, to collect money to support Appalachia and the Arkasas Delta in production, technical expertise, jobs, businesses, community school gardens, growing, harvesting, processing, packaging…you name it…to get the farmlands back in production and to help people help themselves out of poverty. So, thankfully there are people out there thinking about our farms and how to save them (and the farmers).]

Time will tell, especially if this project turns into a serial killer series, rather than being a complete, or at least a partial, fizzle. Confused? So am I, so let me explain.. Today I spent $15 on an indoor gardening … Continue reading
Why don’t they put windmills around the state, federal, and local politicians meeting rooms? It’s a shame to let all that taxpayer paid wind go to waste. Of course in the summer it would have to be cooled. But in … Continue reading
