So God Made a Farmer

A beautiful tribute to farmers. Their work now takes a lot of sophisticated knowledge and hard work, Mr. Bloomberg. Paul Harvey appreciated the hard work and smarts needed to do farming right.

Oversimplifying others’ hard work is not the way to win.

Veterans, We Thank You

At church today, we had a special closing prayer for veterans. I am something of a pacifist, but realize we need a military. I was chagrined that only one veteran was at mass.

Now it’s not a huge congregation. But one reason the number was tiny was that few people in my neck of the woods served.

World Trade Center (WTC) Memorial


I got to go to Ground Zero, the World Trade Center’s Memorial area. It’s an impressive site that honors all those who lost their lives including the first responders. WE approached from the south end and walked all around it.
