  • Old friends and home
    Wednesday, October 26, 2016 1:00 AM
    I've heard it said from time to time and I think it may be true. Some people say you can't go home any more.
  • Life is too short
    Wednesday, October 26, 2016 1:00 AM
    When you are young (been there, done that) you just don't think about life's ending. That's perfectly normal. My gosh, who, at the age of 20, wants to sit around and think about dying of old age? But, when you get to be eighty, in late winter of your life,what’s gonna happen to you after your last breath of polluted earthly air?

  • Metrics are us
    Friday, October 21, 2016 1:00 AM
    Parents and grandparents, remember 35 or 40 years ago when it was the rage to convert us to the metric system, a measurement method that really makes sense. Overall we operate in a base 10 system, counting 1-10 and then going on with 10 + 1 or 11. With ten fingers and ten toes, ten is an easy number to add, subtract, multiply, and divide. 
  • Determination
    Friday, October 21, 2016 1:00 AM
    There is a slim line between being hard headed and being determined. Those all too human traits cross the line from one to the other when no matter how hard you work, or how many times you try you just can’t get your arms to lift your weight up off the ground to climb that rope in the gym. Hard headedness keeps your spirit coming back to try, and determination keeps your body trying and trying until your little arms and legs help you to shinny up that rope and clang that all important bell at the top.

    Wednesday, October 19, 2016 1:00 AM
    The United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) recently published the revised Agricultural Worker Protection Standard (WPS). The WPS is meant to increase protections for agricultural fieldworkers and pesticide handlers from pesticide exposure when working in farms, forests, nurseries and greenhouses. The changes will definitely affect Nevada agriculture, and soon-- as early as January 2017 in some cases.
