Could I be a farmer?

tractorThe World Dairy Expo is in town this week, and that got me to pondering, do I have what it takes to be a farmer? Let's review my agricultural resume: 1. As a reporter in Stevens Point, I got to ride around on a flatbed trailer at the Hancock Experimental Station,  learning about innovations in potato farming. 2. Once interviewed Alice in Dairyland. 3. Sold concessions at a square dance convention. Farmers square dance, don't they? Isn't what the barns are for? 4. Bumper crop in my garden this year! 16 tomatoes and 3 green peppers. Let's not talk about the peas, which are crack to rabbits and inspired them to eat through my plastic fence. 5. I know that Alfalfa is more than just one of the Little Rascals. Pretty impressive...I know. That's why I was quite confident I would fare quite well in a farming challenge posed by Rock-n-Roll Farmer Jimmy Voegeli. My opponent? City kid Jonathan Suttin!  No problem! We paid a visit to the Voegeli Farms area at the Expo today, and got to know some Brown Swiss cows. A little too well. How did everything work out? The video is in post-production, and will be up soon for you to watch. You know that painting American Gothic? It's kinda like that.

World's Worst iPod:Escape Club "Wild Wild West"
Remember when we were headed for the 90s..and grooving to the Escape Club? This band from London scored a number 1 hit in 1988 with the song "Wild Wild West." It's probably the only song you remember from that band--but they weren't a...

World's Worst iPod: Wayne Newton "Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast"

Day 4: The Final Day of Bonnaroo
Today was another busy day at Bonnaroo. We started the day off by seeing Shakey Graves. I missed his show in Madison earlier this year so he was a must see on my list. Loved him! Right as he ended, a press conference with Ed Helms, Abigail...

Day 3: Saturday
Saturday was a very busy day! So many Triple M bands to see! So many concerts were back to back, so we did a lot of walking back and forth from the stages to the media compound. If you're ever in need of getting more steps in during the day,...

Day 2: Friday - Variety, the Spice of Life
Day 2 is upon us! Despite being up fairly late and not sleeping super well (first time camping...I'll get used to it I'm sure), I was hoping to sleep in just a little bit, but my body had other plans. It woke me up at 5:45am for the hell of it. I...

World's Worst iPod: Engelbert Humperdinck "After the Lovin'"
One of the great things about radio in the 60s and 70s is the variety of music that made it onto the radio.  A rock song by Led Zeppelin could be followed up by Paul Anka or Andy Williams. A polka could make it to top 40 right alongside a disco song...
