as i wait

I am sitting at the airport and listening to others as I wait to board my flight. as i sip my starbucks i wonder how many of these people know the true story of agriculture and family farming.

i hear them butcher South Carolina low country names, and giggle about the rural ways. do they know that i just drove 30 minutes from my family farm and they are insulting all rural Americans with their mockery?

at this point in life i still feel like i am 16 even though i havent seen that as an age in over a decade. that feeling prevents me from confronting groups like the above mentioned ones. how would you approach such a group?

i hope at the end of this trip i will possess more confidence and be able to approach groups and enlighten them about the role of agriculture and family farms in America.

New Name...new ideas...change is a good thing

Ok after my last post I realized that I was WRONG!!! Can we say dead wrong?  I don't have enough time to manage two personal blogs plus blogs for the pageant, the SC Beef Ambassador Program and the 4-H club so I have decided at long last I will be combining my 2 personal blogs.  So you will now find entries on sewing, photography, scrapbooking, calving season, upcoming livestock events, issues in agriculture and much more right here on the new blog.  Please bear with me as I move post and make site changes.
