What to Do?

So I have always kind of seen myself as a passionate person without the know-how of how to get my ideas to make it to the 'main stage.' Slowly but surely my confidence has risen and with organizations like this Alliance I see anything is possible and passion is overflowing everywhere. Ideas are just ideas but shared ideas become reality and that is why I have come to be a part of this community because there are possibilities and we can all create change. Takers no more, we can all be…

If you like old gardening books...here are a couple

I am one who loves to find old gardening books or whatever helpful books from years ago. They tend to be more personal, straighter to the point and many have simple illustrations.

I thought I don't need this light jacket and started around the west end of Lake Drummond with two plastic shopping bags in my pocket just in case I saw some trash.

The Hardest Working Man In Well Fed Neighbor

I always liked James Brown-The Hardest Working Man In Show Business. Never got to meet him, but loved the energy he put in to his songs. He reminds me of Galen Chadwick, The Hardest Working Man In Well Fed Neighbor. I see Galen most every workday.I work at Hummert/Springfield Seed, the same building where Well Fed Neighbor has their office. I see Galen come in of a morning, always pleasant and says Hi. Soon he is in the office answering e-mails and tons of phone calls. Next he is off to this… Continue
