If you crave entertainment, you are invited to join me on regular tours of my farm. I'll conduct a video tour of farm operations and might even show you, Bruce, fixing farm machinery (while he tries to avoid me). I'll take you around the farm. Join me when I feed the cows or visit with the calves. It'll be fun! Watch for my videos on Facebook and here on our website.

Usually, I write about raising cattle, birthing calves, fixing broken equipment, and the challenges of working with husband Bruce. That's hard to do this week because our country is in the throes of racial strife. As much as I'd like to share stories of green grass and newborn calves, I can't ignore the vast and terrible thing gripping the country, and it's not spelled c-o-v-i-d.
