It’s the little things… Thanksgiving 2021

November 23, 2021

It’s the little things that give me the energy to get through every day. I am so thankful for them. I thought I would honor those this Thanksgiving.  It seems that the big things always get the attention.  I am grateful for the big things like my kids, family, friends, and health.  I recognize that what keeps me happy in my day-to-day life are these little joys that…

Tractor Parade Central!

November 21, 2021

Finally! After taking a year hiatus due to Covid, the area’s largest Tractor Parade, coming from downtown Greenwich, took place Saturday night, and I daresay it was the best tractor parade yet! The floats just keep getting better and better. Even Barbie made an appearance in a fancy pink tractor–she is quite a farmer! But beyond that, it’s a great night of the year to live in the…

Feeling alive when the days get shorter

November 14, 2021

I choose to go to the mountain..even in the rain. Equinox is my mountain for feeling alive when things get dark in the fall. It seems to be where I go when I am working through some things and need to get charged back up.  The trail that climbs to the top usually reflects the struggle that I might be fighting through inside.  Steadily steep, there are no…

Being From New England

October 31, 2021

Every fall nostalgia kicks in.  Maybe it’s the natural ebb and flow of life, things start to die back this time of year and bodies go into hibernation.  For whatever reason though, I pull back the cobwebs that have been in the back of my mind, and in the cleaning process, it triggers this sense of needing to feel close to my roots, my home, and where I…

Calling all “non-survey” takers

October 24, 2021

Calling all “Non-survey” takers!  I promise, it’s a quickie, and it will help us immensely as we get ready to embrace the next phase for the Morning Ag Clips. My goal, OUR goal is to give you what is most useful in your busy life, however, it may pertain to agriculture.  With so many things coming at you in a sea of information, we certainly don’t want you…

Run run run

October 17, 2021

Running.  Seems like all I do these days is run. Run to this, run to that.  Run here, run there. You are probably thinking that this “running” struggle is about running after the kids and chasing all of the activities they have going on.  Or running after my work, trying to keep pace with so many moving parts. Nope.  Wrong.  Those are the easy runs it seems. My…

Time for a visit and food!

October 4, 2021

Time for a visit!  I could only stay away for so long before I had to check in with my Tyler, all the way out at Purdue. Just a quick trip, long enough to get a “Bug hug,” and find the best donut and burger in West Lafayette… I think that we hit the jackpot!! 🙂    A REALLY good burger we found–with peanut butter on top!  Who would…

Being a good board member

September 26, 2021

We work with many boards of directors every day in our profession.   I have seen great successes on boards, as well as great shortcomings.  Some of this I have observed, some of this I have been a part of, as a board member myself through the years. I ponder, what goes into making a great board of directors?  Why are some boards thriving while others struggle so? Clearly…

The chicken comes to lunch

September 19, 2021

Friday, I had the pleasure of attending a meeting up in Vermont.  Twist my arm; I had to go traveling to one of my favorite places. Sometimes life is so hard.  😉 Kathleen, my co-worker, and I traveled together.  Good company, good conversation.  We always have a pleasant visit whenever we go somewhere.  Thank you, Kathleen! I enjoy our trips. After the meeting, she asked me if I…
