Posted by Liz on July 13, 2017 in Interest, Local, National, Regional, World |

[tminus t=”2017-08-21″ style=”carbonlite” id=”eclipse-timer”/] Coming soon! I’m going to the small town of Mitchell, Oregon to watch from my aunt’s ranch. They are expecting literally bumper-to-bumper traffic even in small out-of-the-way places like Mitchell. It might be more fun to watch the people as watch the eclipse.

Posted by Liz on April 19, 2016 in Interest |

Working for Farmers Weekly has its advantages. If you ever want a bit of gossip or insider information about farming, there’s usually someone around who’ll tell you.

A Thousand Marbles

Found on the internet:   May your Saturday mornings be special. The older I get, the more I enjoy Saturday mornings. Perhaps it’s the quiet solitude that comes with being the first to rise, or maybe it’s the unbounded joy of not having to be at work. Either way, the first few hours of a […]

Posted by Liz on September 22, 2015 in Faith, Interest, Thoughts, Words |

Found on the Internet: A Holding Pattern Many times God will allow a painful situation or a painful circumstance in our life to “swallow us up.” This season in our spiritual growth is a holding pattern. We can’t move to the left or the right. All we can do is sit, like Jonah sat in […]
