  • Just Ask: What's with all these helicopters?

    Question

    I noticed helicopters spraying corn fields. What has changed in corn production where helicopters are used now instead of spray buggies?

    Sincerely,

  • Uninvited passenger

    Imagine yourself out in the middle of the water in a boat, nothing but the scenery around you, a paddle in your hand, gliding along the water smooth as glass as a chorus of cicadas dies down giving way to the evening music of frogs and crickets.

    This is my happy place. It’s been a while since the last time we went on a canoe trip. It’s been long enough that the youngest two boys don’t really remember it.

  • Who is fake?

    I love it. I get to see a lot of different places and meet all kinds of different people. Most importantly, we are all serving God.

    My wife Danielle sings harmony in the group. The rest of the group is made up of her parents, brother, uncle and cousins.

  • The memory jar
  • Saving challenges for women

    America Saves, a national campaign that promotes savings, notes significant differences in savings between men and women. A 2016 survey showed that woman were notably behind across 12 important financial indicators including consumer debt, savings habits, emergency savings, and general savings progress. As concerns continue to rise over American’s often inadequate retirement and emergency savings, it’s become clear that the gender disparity can no longer be pushed aside.
