    My brother sent a Michael Forsburg video. Onparkstreet will recognize the prairies, but tbe breadth of those skies seems an appropriate backdrop for many of our thoughts here.

      The picture of the windmills is misleading. Normally, the blades don’t move. I have driven past windmill farms that are 30 miles long and probably just as wide next to the interstate. I have never counted more that 10 windmills/farm with moving blades.

      I have driven from Pittsburgh to San Francisco and I have seen 1400 miles of corn. I have seen feedlots nestled in the corn. That is an awesome amount of corn.

      I have driven from the north woods of Minnesota to the Midlands of Texas and I have seen another 1000 miles of corn and wheat. I have seen the same drving across southern Canada.

      What will we do when Canada and the Northern states once again freeze over so that crops only grow south of Des Moines?
