More on Sarah

You knew that Jackie and Dunlap would weigh in on Sarah Palin:

John and Sarah

Every one's favorite bad pilot and ex POW, John McCain has chosen Sarah Palin to be his vice presidential running mate. After a bit of reading about her background, I have come to the conclusion that John is a bit worried and this cute little Alaskan may be a way to get all for you women to go vote for him.

Check out Deus Ex Malcontent for the best analysis I've found.
Alan Colmes has some more interesting information.

Kind of a Tourist

This week is DakotaFest, a fun filled week of sun and dust at a farm show in Mitchell, SD. We arrived here Sunday and finished getting everything ready to go by 11:30 Monday morning. Then it off for a little sight seeing.

We took a picture of this homeless guy.

We went to the Prehistoric Indian Village.

The Corn Palace. We didn't go in, we stopped at a bar accross the street, however.

So, You Want to be a Blogger

From those amazing folks from "Corner Gas" (my favorite TV show that I have to watch on the internet) a short scene about how blogs are born.

On Wisconsin!

I spent the last two days driving to and participating in a tillage conference and demonstration at the University of Wisconsin Arlington Agricultural Research Station. There was an excellent turnout, I met Wisconsin dairy farmers that weren't missing any appendages (and some that were), ate some great food last night in Waumakee, and had a good time.

However, Wisconsin is probably the strangest state ever to drive in. If you want to try and take a shortcut, DON"T DO IT! You will be just like me: lost in space in Wisconsin.

So, here I am tonight, in Prairie du Chien, drinking "Spotted Cow" ale, eating a gut bomb sandwich from a convenience store in the "Oriental Jacuzzi Suite"* at the Best Western.

My life is weird!

*normally $129.90..........but, I didn't pay nearly that much!

Important Update

The past few weeks I have been anticipating this post. I was going to post pictures of newly hatched swallows, but they are just not very attractive after hatching. Now they have grown (at a terrific pace!) and are a bit more fun to look at. I was lucky to get this photograph taken before their parents warned them to get back into the nest.
