    Check out this video of antique Rumely tractors pulling a giant plow. This is back when MEN were farmers, and farmers were MEN. (Instead of corporations) Starting the Rumely took two men pulling the flywheel round and round until it 'caught'.

    This was the sort of thing that lead to the creation of the "Dust Bowl".

    Very awesome. When I lived in Minnesota they had meets I believed we called them threshing bee's, where they would have the old steam tractors steam engines and lots of other antique equipment, there was always plenty of beer and usually a polka band, it was a good way to have a good time and get drunker than a skunk.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.
