This was a great read and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did. 🙂
I have been watching and reading the posts that Opinionated Man at the above address has been blogging. It got me thinking about opinions.
So I started here…
I went to www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary and looked up the definition of the word ‘opinion’. According to them the definition is as follows:
b : approval, esteem
b : a generally held view
b : the formal expression (as by a judge, court, or referee) of the legal reasons and principles upon which a legal decision is based
Even though I might not participate I would like my readers to hear about this project…. Project O is getting a lot of notice (at least on my reader feed) It is about Opinions and in my opinion you should at the very least check it out…should prove to be a very interesting read next month and I for one am looking forward to seeing all the different posts.
In this day and age of technology you no longer need to hide under the eaves to eavesdrop….Simply look over someone’s shoulder at a text message.
I often wonder sometimes hanging out with my friends who are texting other friends who are not there at the moment if they are talking about me.
Sure it might be paranoia but don’t we all at some point wonder if we are being talked about?
However I can hold my curiosity and not go so far as to peer over and check out their text messages.
First off, you might learn something about yourself you wish you didn’t know.
That is an unfortunate thing about eavesdropping…you might learn something you wish you did not know.
Secondly, you might read something that to you is embarrassing because you do not know the context of the discussion.. I’ve heard this before and I feel it fits here “This is an A and B conversation so C yourself out of it.” If you were to be part of the discussion the people involved would have invited you into it.
Thirdly, You might learn something about someone else you wish you now did not know.
Sometimes people aren’t talking about you they are talking about someone else…and you might learn rumor, gossip, or even truth you didn’t want to know about.
So, taking all that into consideration……
STOP TEXTDROPPING! 🙂
I have to find a new job.
This means change and I don’t like change.
I love the job I have now.
But I have to leave…
Why.. When you love your job?
Because times are tough.
The kind of dairy farming my bosses family has done for years is getting too hard and too expensive to do. When old farmers refuse to change and try something new and different…. Times get tough.
In all things if you don’t progress forward… You fall behind…
Progression means different things to different people…
The kind of progression I am talking about is when you change how something is done to improve it and make it better.
When the way you do something starts to cause more work, time, money, and grief… That is the time to think it over and come up with a new plan.
Remember times are tough and if you refuse to make changes…. They will stay that way.
It drives me absolutely crazy when a person gets judged over things in their life.
So what? You make more money.
So what? Due to your job you have a whole extra day to spend with your family.
That doesn’t make you better than I.
Everyone has to work with what they have… Sure wanting more is not a bad thing… (it is when you want everything)
Wanting things to be better isn’t a bad thing either.
But how dare you judge someone and make opinions and thoughts on their life and how they live it when you aren’t even seeing the issues in your life.
And forget even listening when someone tries to point out your faults and failures.
I apologize for the rant. This country has so many people struggling day to day and it just infuriates me when someone in a loftier position looks down on those people and thinks ‘TRASH. Those people are why the world is such a terrible place right now. And their kids god they are going to turn out just as bad.’
Ugh! They don’t know that. Last I checked these people aren’t God.
So think kindly of your fellow person… You don’t know how much worse their life could be and you don’t know how much worse than theirs yours could get if life decides to take a turn.
Have a good day, all.
And here’s another blog post about milking cows
Day 3 – Aug. 16, 2013
There will obviously come a time—hopefully soon—when the morning milkings will, by and large, be uneventful. At that point, I’ll quit regularly blogging about them. But that time is not yet, and while we’re riding this sharp learning curve, I’m going to milk this blog series for all it’s worth. Yes, a pun.
Today’s theme: Getting Help From Sassy
Sassafras is Gerty’s calf. She was born on July 17, 2013, and she is something like 1/4 holstein, 1/4 jersey, 1/4 angus, and 1/4 charolais. Truly a product of a globalized world.
As I noted yesterday, Sassy can put her head between the slats of the milking stall and suckle one (or more) of Gerty’s quarters while I milk another. She makes an absolutely slobbery, frothy mess, though since she hasn’t had any milk for 12 hours, who can blame her? (She is nibbling on…
