“The stockings were hung by the chimney with care in hopes that Saint Nicholas soon would be there.” As the years have rolled by, Christmas has taken on many different faces.

Life just keeps on happening

Thursday, December 18, 2008

We’ve all heard the saying, “Life is what happens while we’re busy making plans.” Well, I am in the midst of living that truth at the moment. Friday evening I went over the dozens of things needing to be accomplished over the weekend. As I crawled in to bed, my mind kept darting about, trying […]

No doubt the world is changing

“I will be an American farmer. American agriculture is one of the few things that still makes me proud of this country. It has not been trivialized or forsaken.

“And in the end it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” — Abraham Lincoln It looks as though our glorious Indian summer is over for another year, as harsh winds carry blowing snow outside my window. I find myself dreading winter more than I have in a […]

It’s a relief hard-fought election is over

Thursday, November 13, 2008

For those who are relieved this presidential election is over, I write this column. President-elect Barack Obama was born the year John F. Kennedy gave his inaugural address. In Obama’s book, The Audacity of Hope —Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream, he quotes from Kennedy’s inaugural address: “To those peoples in the huts and villages […]

Harvest is work for some, play for others

Wednesday, November 5, 2008

This season brings lots of work, though the work is tempered with the accomplishment of a year of planning and labor. As a kid, we saw the fun rather than the work at harvest time. While other kids were happily busy with raking leaves just to jump in to them, my sisters and I had […]

So lucky to be Caroline’s mom

“The best way to keep children at home is to make home a pleasant atmosphere — and to let the air out of the tires.” – Dorothy Parker Among some of my earliest Farm and Dairy columns was a piece in which I talked about my impatience while awaiting the birth of my second baby. […]
