What I Learned As A Farmers Daughter

Being a farmers daughter comes along with some very important lessons.

What I Learned As A Farmers Daughter
Organic Ag Law

I've grown up my whole life as a farmer's daughter, and most days, I wouldn't trade the tractor rides and bottle calves for the world! Throughout those years of being with my dad, I learned a lot of things.

1. If I couldn't walk or ride my bike there, I wasn't going to get there (at least not until my mom got home)

Driving the tractor out of the field and home to take me to town and go swimming was not in the schedule.

2. If I needed a ride, whether to or from a practice at school, I better expect it to be late,

If I was really smart, I would just walk home with my friends until my dad called.

3. When your dad says, "bump", while you're riding in the buddy seat, it really means "I know you're about to smash your head into the window for the tenth time today."

I'm still surprised to this day that there aren't any farmers kids who have long lasting concussions.

4. You thought babysitting was good birth control, talk about bottle calves for a second.

Do you want to be slobbered on, licked, sucked on, kicked, head butted, and pooped on at least twice a day? From the minute they're born, they can walk and follow you, and beller when you don't feed them enough.

5. To me, I'd rather squat and pee, than go in a port-o-potty. Why is that?

Well probably because from a young age, I had to squat and pee outside of the tractor on a daily basis.

6. If it rains too much before June 1, everyone's pissed.

If it doesn't rain between mid-June to August, everyone's pissed. If it rains to much after September 1, everyone is still pissed. Basically, you can barely win!

7. A meal really isn't a meal if it doesn't contain a protein.

Whether it be beef or pork, if it's not incorporated in every meal, it's not even a meal.

8. There's no greater love than a father-daughter relationship, and being a farmers daughter has only amplified that love for my hardworking father.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
