It's the Breaks: The Arikaree Breaks

I spent ten years growing up on a farm in NW Kansas - about as far north and west as you can go and still remain in Kansas. We were just a few additional miles from Nebraska. What I wouldn't give now to lie on my Grandfather's old flat bed ...

Sarah Palin: It's Your Birthday! What Your Gift Would Be

Ronda Miller

It would have slid right by me if a certain online persona hadn't made mention of it in my blog about chili. And to think I'm having tea with her at an upcoming party! Sarah was born February 11th of 1964. I believe that makes her 46 as of today's ...
