Hi - I'm Russ from Lewisvile North Carolina (outside Winston-Salem).

by way of Atlantic Beach Florida (Jacksonville's other beach)

prior to that - lived in Champagne-Urbana Illinois (now called Urbana-Champagne - whats up with that?)

and I was born in Chelsea Mass (Outside Boston)

Seems they don't let me live in the City - always have to live outside town.

Pass another cool one this way.


If you know of any Jeff Foxworthy material (You might be a red neck ....) then thats a NC expression

awwite - all right

No, we here in Illinois still call it Champaign-Urbana. It rolls off the tongue better that way.

Here in Ohio it is Urbana, Champaign County. Which is only 20 miles from me.

Confused yet? tongue.gif

I have been living in Whitehorse, Yukon for the past 9 years but have lived on both coasts of Canada and a few places in the middle.

We have two seasons- winter and then 2 months of tough sledding.

Now, could someone pass me a mug of Arctic Red please.

How about living in Fulton County, whose county seat is Hickman, which is just south of Hickman County, whose county seat is Clinton, while the biggest town around is Fulton which isn't the county seat of anything?

I need a beer. Only 7 more hours to go till I can have one. My boss gets a wee bit upset if I drink one at work. Oh well. wink.gif

Just my tuppence.

I'm from Tokoroa, population about 15,000 or so, which is about 60 odd kms north of Taupo, and named after a Maori chief from the mid 19th century who lost a dust-up with the British. Tokoroa is mainly known for its forestry industry, but it also possesses an extensive agricultural industry. I, myself, am engaged in the dairying sector situated about 6 kms outta town, managing a one-man property of 77 hectares and milking, currently, about 180 girls. I've always been a cow-cocky , and probably always will be. I've tried the city life, but it's simply not me. I love my wide open spaces.

This is my patch...

Hi Kiwi Gael, a question or two I have for you if you don't mind, biggrin.gif What kind of dairy cows do you have. I guess you have the electric milkers, that would be some job to milk all those gals by hand. I'm a farm gal myself. I know you have your work cut out for you. You have a good size herd to take care of with about 190 acres. What is the milk used for? I hope you don't think I'm too nosy, wink.gif this is something that I like.

... Yeh, everything is pretty automated, thank God that the old days have gone. The milking shed is a 20-aside herringbone, with the pit down the centre, and is fitted with automatic cup removers, which are a Godsend and save a bitta labour. The milk gets stored in the refrigerated vats, and then gets hauled off to the processing factory where they turn it into all sorts of dairy goodies - you might even have some of them on your supermarket shelves over there.
Aye, it's a busy job, especially during calving (July-Sept), but this time of year is really cruisy - just milking really and a few little jobs thru the day. The stock live outdoors all year, though the calves will still have access to shelter until the worst of the winter weather has gone. It's not an easy farm to run, it's quite hilly and we're really exposed to the winter weather up here on the Volcanic plateau area, with lottsa frosts and wind which can knock the ol' girls around a bit. But I've been very fortunate this season, and have lost only 1 cow. Production is up by 7%, so I'm hoping to reach my target of 60,000 milk solids.
I enjoy farming (well, most of the time wink.gif ) - I like the outdoors, fresh air and wide open spaces, no crowds, no traffic, no hemmed-in neighbours.
I like working on my own, working to my own schedule, pace and way of doing things.
Oh, and I milk black and whites, most of them crossed with Jersey. cowboy.gif

Ok, folks follow these simple directions:

1) Hold up your right hand with your palm facing you.

2) Place the index finger of your left hand on the crease where your hand joins your wrist.

3) Move your left index finger up about an inch.



There you have it! You're pointing to my home town of Marshall, Michigan, USA!


As the comedian Kevin Nealon says, "It's a good thing Michigan isn't shaped like a butt!" biggrin.gif
