My wife Kim and I live on a 16 acre farm in Solon Township in Kent County.
We are trying to get a beef operation going, but make some money with our egg business.
I love to restore old wooden motor boats. (DO YOU HAVE ONE THAT'S BEEN IN A BARN FOR YEARS?)
I love to fly radio control airplanes and the ones with strings that we all had as kids! Anyone have some of those lying around?
My best buck is a rather small eight point, but it is hanging in my office.
My best fish was a King Salmon I fought for 45 minutes on the lake. But it got away.
I grew up in Chicago and remain a dedicated Cubs and Bears fan.

Kicker Justin Tucker was all the offense the Baltimore Ravens needed Monday night to beat the Lions.
Tucker hit six field goals, but none bigger than a 61-yarder with 38 seconds to play, as the Ravens earned an 18-16 victory over the Lions.
After calling their final time out, with less than a minute to play the Ravens sent Tucker out to attempt a 61-yard field goal.
After the kick, Stafford's first pass was picked by the Baltimore secondary to seal the win.
HERE ARE THE STANDINGS THIS MORNING.
The NFC North will not produce a wild card winner this year, so to make the playoffs, a team will have to win the Division.
The Lions have the Giants at home next week, and travel to Minnesota to finish the season.
The Bears are in Philly next Sunday night and host Green Bay to close the season.
The Packers host Pittsburgh next Sunday.
To make the playoffs the Lions must win both remaining games and hope Chicago loses once. The Packers would have win out and take the division with a win over Chicago in the final game.
The Bears will win the division if they win their last two games.
