  • U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) Administrator Val Dolcini announces that almost half of all dairy farms in America have made their annual elections for 2016 coverage under the Margin Protection Program, and reminded producers who have not yet enrolled that they have until Nov. 20, to select coverage.
    “This safety net is not automatic, so producers must visit their local FSA office to enroll before Nov. 20,” said Dolcini.

  • I was at a funeral visitation where I was to officiate. Visitors were steadily coming in when I spotted a familiar face, but no one I really knew – we did some volunteer work together.
    I went over to say hello, and with funeral notice in hand and booming voice, he says, “I didn’t know you were a preacher?” – loud enough for all whole world to hear.
    Then he caught what he said and rejoins, “Not that you have done anything wrong.”

  • I spent this past weekend feeling sad.
    The reason isn’t important — actually, there really wasn’t a reason other than I just felt like being sad, and so I was.
    I called my sister to tell her that I was sad, but she was at her granddaughter’s soccer game and didn’t answer her phone, which made me even sadder.
    I would’ve told my husband I was sad, but he would just tell me all the reasons I have not to be sad or he’d give me a pep talk, which is not the proper response to sadness, in my opinion.
