The world of agriculture keeps evolving in all sorts of ways, and it is refreshing to be able to say that many things are looking up.

This is the time of year that slows us down enough to enjoy the grandeur all around us. The leaves are absolutely stunning as the bright blue sky serves as their backdrop and the sunshine dapples the entire show with brilliance.

I was talking to a sweet woman one day this past week, and she mentioned that her little Westie dog is getting old and feeble.
