News and More News
There is news streaming in from around the world. A large earthquake hit Japan after the big one in New Zealand and the video shows a coast being swept clean.
Farmers are really getting antsy on NewAgTalk. One of the farmers a few miles east of me posted a supposed finding by local land grant's that glyphosate damage is being blown out of proportion.
But I found two that really touched me heart. A boy in Iowa dying of cancer wishes to receive one million get well cards.
His name is Max Low and they call him Mighty Max.
Do Max and me a favor and mail him a get well card at Box 111, Neola, Iowa, 51559.
Ever since I met Loran Steinlage of West Union Iowa I have been praying for his son Rolan, with a cancer and near the same age as Max.
Then I prayed for DaNNY, the way he wrote his name and Harper Creek. The Lord took them both back. That's a good thing, isn't it? It sure doesn't feel like it down here.
So just send Max a get well card, mine is in the mail today.
Another farmer broke his neck in a fall from trimming trees on his farm, Shane Haas.
A young lady was killed driving a new Deere from one factory to the other near Waterloo, Iowa yesterday.
I bring these up only to remind us to be safe and pray for each other when we are ill. The million card wish is a good one so I thought I would share.
We have a new white blanket of snow, very unexpected.
I leave with a picture from Florida, one year ago, where it rarely snows.
