    Desperate Times!

    We spent most the morning with 2 farmers which turned out well as they offered up more land for the future. We also tried 2 fields for 3 hours with little success - 1 recordable - Rose Farthing!

    Roll on the harvest.

    Was about to ask him the same question.===Maa Duce...
    As I am finding , In life we begin having the Blissful happiness & the Wonder & innocence of a Child, then fall Quickly, then spend the rest of our lives trying to reach that point where we began ,through Pleasure , Fame, & Materials but Only 'Through true faith in Jesus , can we find Prefect Happiness or true Meaning in our Short lives on this Beautiful Earth filled with both the Light of Pure goodness & The Darkness of Pure Evil.
