Wake up one day and your world can change.
I am just a simple man. I live in a small community (ok, tiny). This morning CNN.com decides to post a story about twittering farmers. I was selected along with some of my agricultural twittering colleagues to be highlighted in this article.
Let me thank the author of the story, John Sutter. He’s from Oklahoma. He has a grasp of farming. And he did a very good job.
But, that article wasn’t the end. Countless numbers of new followers on twitter want to see what goes on here. I don’t understand. I hear many travellers going down I-80 who stop in Ogallala, Nebraska say, “Well, this is one boring spot.” or something similar. My answer to that is, we make up our own fun!
Welcome to all the new contacts and twitter followers and whomever else wants to come by and woller around in my 15 minutes of fame.
It continues with a brief little Skype Interview on CNNlive. Here is the link to that. I got a call asking if they could do that tomorrow if we could make the Skype connection. I’m lucky to have internet, let alone bandwith to run Skype, but it went very well. My internet connection goes wireless about 50 miles before it gets to the main internet tube!
It’s alright, I didn’t want to get much done today anyway. My family of four children and I are taking my wife Rachel to Denver this afternoon to put her on a plane for Africa. Pray for her safe travels and the work she will be doing with the orphaned children of Zambia. Pray for me that I can handle four kids, of which one is still in diapers. (Grandma will be moving in tomorrow!)
Thanks for stopping by. I can always use a few more friends!
