Have a Great Easter...

Easter is tomorrow so I hope everyone has a chance to spend time with family and friends and celebrate the Risen Savior! That is what I'm going to be doing today and tomorrow at least ... but, I didn't want to leave my blog blank on a Saturday.

So, I found this video by searching for "Iowa" on YouTube. I love my state, and I have never wanted to live anywhere else. In fact I believe Iowa is one of the most beautiful places in the country. But, I can still laugh at myself ... and there probably is a bit of truth to this video.

Enjoy the video ... but, more importantly enjoy the weekend!

I haven't viewed the film yet, but I admire your love of your state.

One thing that really bothers me about modern America, and which is bothering more than usual this weekend, is the rootless nature of Americans. They aren't from anywhere. We're generally proud of that, when we shouldn't be, as it can make us very destructive to place.

Around here, for example, we continue to see an influx of people who move here as they "love the wide open spaces". They then proceed to destroy the wide open spaces by building houses on "ranchettes", where they then proceed to starve some poor horse they never ride. It's agony for those of us from here, particularly those of us who would like to stay, or expand, in agriculture. We can't compete with them economically, and they seem totally oblivious to the fact that they're the biggest single destructive element in the state.

I hope the Mid West is spared this somewhat. Farm land is, as they say, "basic". Those who aren't farmers ought to keep their hands off of it, for all of our sakes.
