About me

Industry Agriculture
Occupation Organic farmer
Location United States
Introduction I have a certified organic farm and we are the ONLY certified farm in our county, so we are the resident fruitcakes. My politics are a mixed bag, some leftwing, a few rightwing, no knee jerking here. I believe in letting people live their lives as they wish, as long as they don't try to make me live like they do and it doesn't harm others. Religion is a personal thing and has no place in our government beyond encouraging our elected officials to live honest and decent lives and take the welfare of the least powerful of their constituents into account when they make laws.
Interests Spinning, knitting, crochet, sewing, needlework of all kinds, I read a lot mostly eye-candy of various kinds or farming stuff.
Favorite Movies Arsenic and Old Lace, The African Queen, Second Hand Lions
Favorite Music Anything done by Stevie Ray Vaughn and Janis Joplin. Too bad they both died young!, New Orleans jazz especially anything Marsalis family and John Boute, Chayanne, various classical composers, various bluegrass artists...
Favorite Books 1632 by Eric Flint, any Laiden Universe™ books (Lee and Miller), Louisa May Alcott, especially the Little Women series, always a good cry to be had there.

This is a colon : and this is a semi-colon ; - what's a semi-truck?

A BIG truck aka an "eighteen wheeler". Usually to be found cutting in front of me at about half the speed I'm going on I-71.
