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.

In the boys category, Jackson moved up to take the top name, ending the 8-year reign of Aiden, while Sophia remained the top name for girls for the fourth year in a row.
The list is taken from a large sample of 550,000 babies born this year to moms registered on "BabyCenter’s" website.
Linda Murray, BabyCenter Global editor in chief, says names with personal meaning – such as family names, grandparents and inspiring role models— were behind many of the top baby name trends.
On the list of top 10 boys names are: Jackson, Aiden, Liam, Lucas, Noah, Mason, Jayden, Ethan, Jacob and Jack.
The list of top 10 girls names is: Sophia, Emma, Olivia, Isabella, Mia, Ava, Lily, Zoe, Emily and Chloe.
More than half of moms say they found name inspiration in people they know, while celebrity influence was on the decline.
But, even though celeb names are less popular, some are still moving up in presence on the list.
Of the key characters on the reality show "Duck Dynasty," the name Korie increased by 89 percent and Mia was up 44 percent while Phil, Sadie and Silas were up 32, 23 and 15 percent, respectively.
There are 100 possibilities.
My score was a pathetic "20"
