Ten cows, ten sows and a hundred hens
Little brother (6'3", 240) and I often joke about going back to the old way of farming. That would be similar to what we grew up with near West Bend, Iowa, and Hadley, MN. We realize, of course, turning back to that long hour, hard labor work on small acreages "ain't gonna happen".
We fully know that 10 sows farrowed spring and fall, 10 cows milked by hand and 100 laying hens with hand-picked and washed eggs is only in our rearview mirror.

Thanksgiving polling
This week's online poll asked readers to vote for their favorite part of Thanksgiving. ("All of the above" was not an option.)
Indeed, you could pick only one aspect of the Thanksgiving weekend you enjoy most:
•  Food
•  Family
•  Football
•  Shopping
Thankfully, "family" was holding more than a 2 to 1 margin over food with football and shopping running a distant third and fourth, respectively.

Remember to back up
Recently, here at
iCitizen, we have had a number of computers brought to us with either bad hard drives or hard drives that are completely dead. If your hard drive is bad, but still functioning, consider yourself lucky because at any moment you could end up with a dead hard drive and lose all of your documents, pictures, business files, etc. Unless, of course, you back up your computer.

Penalty goes up for bus stop arm violations
Question: I read that the fine for going through a school bus stop arm will increase in Minnesota. Can you talk about the fine amount and school bus safety?
