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.
You know that I have a Mahindra Tractor from Burnips Equipment in my barn. Every day that "beast" makes my life easier! I don't know how I ever managed my hobby farm without it. Yesterday I was driving on 22 Mile Road to get a fill up, and someone driving past me shouted out at me that I had the wrong "colored" tractor.
I wish I could have shown that guy this video.....
The little princess is due to arrive on Saturday July 13th.
I say princess because Kate slipped at a public gathering a couple of months ago and referred to the Royal Bun in the Oven as a girl!
But there is a fly in the Monarchs ointment. The due date falls right in the middle of the Queens Coronation Festival, a big shindig that marks 60 years on the throne.
It's almost certain William and Kate will keep a low profile as the date draws near!
Over the weekend, Disney officially installed the Heroine of Brave, Merida, as it's 11th princess. But not without giving the Scottish Lass a Victoria Secret Makeover and taking away her bow and arrow.
She is now wearing the kind of dress she despised in the movie.
Brenda Chapman directed the movie...
“I think it's atrocious what they have done to Merida,” Merida was created to break that mold - to give young girls a better, stronger role model, a more attainable role model, something of substance, not just a pretty face that waits around for romance.”
At a website called change.org, more than 100-thousand people have asked Disney to revert to the original image.
It is the last major piece of the USS Gerald R Ford being lifted into place.
The TV stations and newspaper said alot of gushy things about the latest carrier, and how it will be a great ship.. blah blah blah...
It was clear to me, none of these people had ever been in the Navy.
All I saw was alot of work for some miserable Seaman chipping and painting with a Third Class Petty Officer standing over him screaming about how he was doing it all wrong....
Do you remember these two twins?
They were Fook Mi and Fook Yu.
They weren't really twins, but make up made them look like it.
The one on the right is Fook Yu, and she grew up to be.....
