  • Kudos to the brave souls last Tuesday night for attending the Carroll County Beef and Forage Field Day. It was hot and if one was to look at the weather radar I would have been near the house too. We were lucky with just a short sprinkle and it cooled down quite a bit.

    The highlight of the night was the animal composting pad that was installed for the field day.

  • What a wonderful  Independence Day celebration we had at the home of Joe and Sandy Beall in Ghent on Saturday, July 2.

    They do this every year and we feel so privileged to be on their guest list. It has become such  a tradition that even our grandson, Justin, doesn’t want to miss out on all of the festivities and food. Joe and Sandy plan months ahead for this big event – actually, I can honestly say a year in advance. We have already received our “pre-invite” for July 7, 2012.
