Thoughts from Kelln

I really don’t know what to write.  Too many happening to keep track of and then report.  It is August which means goat sales are slow.  Will they pick up in September like normal……2020 is anything but normal.  We shall see. I don’t attend very many weddings/receptions.  Not my scene.  The Dragon Lady made it clear that I didn’t have much of a choice.  So, I along with a butt-load of others attended the Jamie

Double whammy!

We aren’t going to do 2 different lists on this night.  We are just going to put a couple of things out there for your perusal.  If you don’t like it, click to a different website. Most under-rated groups/performers of all time, regardless of genre. Keith Whitley–Personally, I think this dude would have been one of the best country singers of all time.  His sound… the words… so good.  But….he went all Keith Whitley and

It is past the normal time of year for FFA Alumni Camp.  However, some of the state staff worked hard to come up with a streamlined, covid free, version of camp for 2020.  Early Sunday morning, Tammy and I loaded up 11 Shattuck FFA members and trekked to the eastern part of the state.  We got everybody’s temps checked, health forms checked and then dropped kids off at camp.  The 2020 version of camp started

Coin shortage?

Posted on July 26, 2020

Of all the stupid $h!t to come out of 2020, the coin shortage might be the dumbest.  This makes NO cents!  Literally, America is out of common cents! Go back and watch the classic movie Office Space.  A couple of low level computer hacks figure out a way to embezzle the extra pennies on transactions.  I have always liked this movie.  And yes, it stars some no-name hacks but it is well made AND it

Real World Problems

Posted on July 24, 2020

The media lets you know daily covid infection rates, or deaths or the next happening that is being closed due to the rona.  But, no, not one mention of RHD.  Nothing. Crickets.  But this RHD has been devastating to an entire industry.  What?  For real?  Yes, for real. Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease has shut down the rabbit industry.  No rabbit shows in the USA.  It is very lethal.  This virus has been found in tame and

Oh wow!!

Yes, I forgot a few videos.  November Rain being the biggie that I left off.  That one was epic and I just flat ass forgot it.  However, it doesn’t change my top 5 overall.  I do, however, agree with a couple of readers, that YES, it is a good thing Lynyrd Skynyrd did NOT make music videos.  Because, if they did, with all of the southern decorations, they would now be banned and erased form

Music Video G.O.A.T.

Posted on July 17, 2020

Before you read this, remember that I grew up in an era when MTV and CMT first blew up.  I am a visual person, so I like a good music video. Some groups/performers do a better job of utilizing a video to promote the song.  Some use sexuality to really make it all come together.  Some videos accentuate the power of the song. Just like any other show, we will break these up into divisions.

Wandom Wednesday

No, I’m not making fun of hair lips.  However, I do have a story that involves showing wabbits.  But, that is for another time. I mowed the ag farm this afternoon, then came home and piled into the garden.  For the 2nd night in a row, I picked a couple of 5 gallon buckets of sweet corn.  Between the grasshoppers, piss ants and wasps, I have had enough insect damage to make me wish that

Stupid Stuff

Posted on July 14, 2020

It’s no secret that I am a fan of some stupid stuff.  I’ve been known to buy some really stupid, skinny goats (backed by strong genetics).  Now… that I type that, I have to ask myself….were they stupid & skinny or just stupid skinny?    Since they were goats, let’s go with…..BOTH!!   That was stupid but you goat people should get it. To answer that stupid question, as an ag teacher, I’m not dealing

We hadn’t been seeing much water in these parts.  We have seen and smelled rain but haven’t actually got any of it for a couple of months.  The lack of rain combined with the 105+ temps for the past week has made it kind of brutal around here.  Don’t know if any of the crops that I planted will make hay or not? Last night, we finally got a bit of water.  Three tenths and
