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.
The National Weather Service says it will be brutally hot this afternoon, the hottest day of the week.
The HEAT ADVISORY continues until midnight tomorrow night. This afternoon the mercury will climb into the low and mid 90's. With the humidity, it will feel like a hundred degrees or better.
There is a real danger of heat exhaustion or heat stroke today. The first sign of real trouble happens when you stop sweating. I had it once, and it wasn't fun. I got inside, cooled off in a cool shower and then slept for several hours.
Please remember water for your animals today.
On Friday, Canadian air will finally push in. But that is certain to touch off some storms, and we'll need to keep an eye on that. They could be big ones!
Stay cool today!
