Fat is for you: suet pudding recipe

Did God have a small over sight for those of us in northern climates? Apparently he didn't realize that the sun doesn't shine regularly in some places. Good thing we figured out how to manufacture Vitamin D and put it in a pill so it's easy to ship all over. WAIT A...

Not just a drain: Farm kids

Bull Adventures

Bulls. Looking across the rickety "Michigan gate" into the eyes of Endeavor the Guernsey bull, I started asking myself a few questions. "How serious is he about his bully threats? Do I dare bluff him?" "Why the heck do we still have a bull??" "How fast can I still...
