I must admit, I have taken some time off from the computer. I apologize to those who find these ramblings so intriguing. We will make some attempts to put some important information on this page on a routine basis.
The past few weeks have been extremely interesting. As many of you know, I have enjoyed great fame. That has led to some other opportunities. Like this:
Glad to find ways to share my world with you. You can follow all of the twitter road trip interviews here.
Then the next day after that interview…..
I was recently interviewed for a potential book on Social Media. It’s amazing how Twitter, Facebook, and social media have made the world smaller, and more interesting.
I have really had a great opportunity to make some great friends with the hail adjusters. Did you know you are audited from the Federal Crop Insurance regulators when you receive a large check from them? That ‘s so nice! The good news is, I know everything is up to date and not much to find. That’s the value of a great insurance agent.
A week ago, we ventured to the Black Hills. No, it wasn’t for the Sturgis Rally. I don’t own a bike. I was surprised at how few of bikes were present. I hear they are getting upset with how much they are being taken advantage of. Hotels more than double their rates. People say that most places make a ton of profit during this week. I can fully understand why they would want to stay away.
One story about the Sturgis Bike Rally participants. We stopped for gas at a convenience store in Custer, SD. It’s not easy for a car to fit in with a flock of bikers. That didn’t deter me though, I desperately needed the gas. When I went in to pay for the beverages, and snacks and gas I talked with the lady running the cash register. She commented on how honest and nice these bikers were. She had never had one problem with any of them. That’s not what my prejudicial nature wants to think. I’m still learning!
Things are back to normal on the farm. The kids start school on Monday. Michael starts 8th grade, Tyler is a 1st grader, and my daughter Kylie starts Kindergarten. Tyler has informed Kylie that 1st graders are “the boss” of Kindergartners. This should be interesting. That leaves Trevyn home with me to do all the work.
Let’s keep in touch. Leave a comment or say HI via twitter.
