Published Apr. 16, 2015

Kids today have a totally different view of “playing” than we adults have. Most of them are so smart it’s almost scary and yet they seem to lack common sense and responsibility.

Most of you are probably in a panic because Christmas is only a day or so away. There are never enough hours in the day at this time of year.  Listening to Christmas music is one of my favorite ways to try to calm down.   Recently I heard the wonderful English carol “The Twelve Days of Christmas” and it occurred to me that our farm and the song have several things in common.
