Quality First!

If you work with youth and agriculture during the summer, it is Pork Quality Assurance season. Youth Pork Quality Assurance training is designed to teach our young people participating in youth swine projects pork food safety and animal well being.

So, one of the most common questions I get this time of year is "Do I have to do Pork Quality Assurance training?" My response from now on is going to be "Why wouldn't you want to do Pork Quality Assurance training?" This is a program that teaches us how to safely handle and market our pork for the consumers which we should all want to do if we are raising pork!

Yahtzee Junior Review

Our daughter is five and is developing a love for board games. Which I love!!! So, I was very happy to find Yahtzee Junior. It comes with great graphics that you can put on the dice that are easy for kids to understand. The directions are also easy to follow, which is a plus because I had forgotten how to play Yahtzee.

Snow Much Fun

We had a few inches of fluffy snow this week. We took advantage of the chance to make snow angels and snow balls. It was fun to be outside with them....I just wish I could find my snowboots.
