  • The Louisville area extension services will be offering the USDA Beginning Farmer Rancher Program starting in January of 2012.  This program will be open to individuals who currently farm 20 acres or more, and who have been farming on their own for less than 10 years.   The program is meant to be a very in depth farm management program, so some basic farming knowledge is required.   The schedule of classes has been planned to hopefully minimize classes during busy times of the year.

  • This week I turned 57.

    I thought by this age I’d get the hang of the whole sainthood thing. The Protestant definition of a saint is simply a follower of Jesus.

    However, that doesn’t seem enough. There should be more to it than that. For instance, by now I should have at least the beginning buds of a halo or be able to say no to temptation eight out of 10 times — or two out of 10!

    But the truth is, I still struggle.
