Calving season tips: Increased energy management during extreme weather is crucial

Memories are the true trophies of the Pinewood Derby

In the universe of parenting young children, January is a dead zone of dreadful nothingness. Christmas gifts break or worse - become obsolete - cabin fever sets in, kids start fighting and dads suddenly find business trips to Scottsdale or San Diego. Clinicians long ago came up a clinical diagnosis called Seasonal Affective Disorder - SAD - which is translated to "get me out of here."

I then thought that possibly the majority of all our outdoor activities happen in adverse conditions. My conclusion is that Kansas really does have some of the best people living ...
