Tomorrow night (Tuesday, June 7 — 8 to 10 pm eastern) #AgChat will [...]

Sure, we have talked almost exclusively through 140 character messages, but there is a funny immediate change of expression when you see a person who you’ve seen only [...]
I’ve been a fan of Letterman forever it seems. Went to the show a couple of times when I was living in NY metro. I even sent out Christmas cards one year that was a photo of me and Mujibar… one of the sales guys at the souvenir shop next to the theater. (That was [...]

Thanks for stopping by and wondering what I am about. My passions are photography, travel and agriculture -- love spending time taking pictures on a farm far from home. Putting all those things together its understandable that differences in culture are intriguing to me…. I can spend a lot of time soaking up things. Its almost always a colorful adventure!
