This past weekend almost everyone in the U.S. did the tradition of setting our clocks forward one hour. What I need help understanding is why we are still doing this. From what people who are way smarter than I have found, there is no benefit from everyone moving their clocks back and forth an hour. Before anyone sends me an email or finds me and says it for the farmers, I encourage you to ask a farmer and see if it benefits them. Please look into the concept of daylight savings, you will be surprised as to what the original intent was for, and farmers were not it. more
Dear Marshfield Community Businesses and Members, more
I’ll admit I’m not a Buffalo native. more
I am so very glad to be back for more ramblings. This week we are going to ramble about our dear Mary Lou and her struggle to maintain her faith to keep going under very trying conditions. more
In the wake of the recent bank failures, it’s easy to get sucked into the fear. Uncertainty will always be a thing. It will always be there, present, whether we like it or not. I heard a Paul Harvey quote recently, “In times like these, it’s good to remember that there have always been times like these.” Stuff has been going down for millennia. Peaceful times may ensue for a few years at a time, but change will always be right around the corner, whether globally, nationally, or personally, or any combination thereof. more
If we wish to be divinely aligned, as that will lead to the highest good of all of humanity and creation, and therefore, our own personal happiest state of being, then we have to be willing to follow that fleeting trail that the divine realm lays out for us. more
War is Horrible! To all of my friends and neighbors of Webster County and beyond, this week’s ramblings are not so nice! Let’s pause for a second and remind everyone where we are. more
We are back with another chapter of How did I get here? Last week's chapter ended with me resigning from my job at a call center. It was scary to go from a steady job to nothing, but I knew it was the best decision in the long run. more
What a triple whammy. more
From the time they were big enough to make their own beds, my girls always had rooms of their own. more
As I sat in the elementary art class, on assignment as a substitute at the school, I listened to the teacher’s lesson to the children on concentric circles. The exercise would begin with a dot being drawn. A small circle would be drawn around the dot, then a larger one around that, and then a larger one, and so on, and so on. Each circle shared the same center. In this particular exercise, several series of concentric circles would be drawn on a large sheet of paper, overlapping each other. The different color patterns made quite a cool effect. more
War is horrible! Hi friends and neighbors. It’s been a couple of weeks since we have connected so let me catch you up to where we are at now. Oh, if you are a newcomer we are in an ongoing story about a young couple that grew up together in our community and eventually got married before the civil war started. more
We are back to how I got here. When we left off, I had just got a new boss after the old boss had been promoted and moved away. more
March 1, here at last — again. more
I was blocked by a billionaire this week.  more
Last May, at the Missouri Beef Days festival in Bolivar, I was excited to hear Temple Grandin speak. Grandin is an Animal Science professor and lecturer, who also visits meat processing plants to consult on their handling of the animals. I was astounded to hear her concerns about America. She reported about how we continually rely on other countries for the articulately designed products that are needed in our food processing plants, and how not many Americans are aware of how to repair these items when they need to be fixed. more
Hello again! I hope all is well with you! I’m back this week with another chapter on how did I get here? Last week I just recapped that I got into a training department right as Covid came to the states. Like many of us, I felt lost at first. All my daily habits, including shopping and visiting friends and family, were suddenly thrown out the window. more
Today, Feb. 22, we celebrate the birth in 1732 of our nation’s first president, Gen. George Washington, commander of the victorious Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War, president of the constitutional convention of 1787 and the man we honor as the father of our country. more
It's great to see you again! Welcome back to another chapter of how I got here. more
Welcome back! Another week has passed, and now another chapter of how I got here. more
Hey everyone, it's valentine's week! You are supposed to buy a box of chocolate for your sweetheart this week! To my new friends that told me they were reading the ramblings for the first time: let's quickly review. Since the first of the year, we have had a courtship going on between Mary Lou and Johnny. However: this story has had more turns and switchbacks than a goat trail in the Boston Mountains of Arkansas. more
Welcome back to another week and another chapter into how I got here. When we left, I was going to college, where I would get my associate's degree in teaching. more
Hi everyone! Are you prepared for an exciting adventure this week? If not, you need to get ready! O K more
How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? more
While reading the answers from the helpful people at Burrell Behavioral Health for my article this week, I was reminded of a quote in a book I recently finished. Since I home-school, I read a Pocahontas biography out-loud to my children. Far from the fairy tale ending of the Disney movie version I grew up with, this interpretation included real-life, gritty details. more
