  • Unlike the ancient Israelites, I’m not in the habit of naming rocks.

    Apparently, the Philistines were set to slaughter the Israelites. Full-on assault, take no prisoners.

  • The new single-use liquid laundry detergent packs that dissolve in the washing machine are convenient and easy to use. But if you have (or care for) small children, be especially careful to keep them locked up and out of reach. 

    All cleaning products should be kept out of the reach of children, but these new laundry pods present an even greater risk. With their bright colors and squishy feel, they may look to a child like something fun to play with or good to eat. 

  • Insect infestations in stored wheat can cost a lot of money in treatment expenses or elevator discounts.  The best way to avoid insect problems in stored wheat is to follow preventive management practices from harvest until delivery of the crop for sale.

    These steps include conscientious equipment management before, during, and after harvest as well as good sanitation practices.  Other safeguards are thoroughly drying the crop, timely aeration, and frequently checking grain condition.
