    Congrats on being farmer of the day. I really should start baking bread again. I haven't baked bread for at least 25 years, but I can still remember the awesome aroma that filled the house on baking day.

    Farm life is great but a lot of hard work. Most of my youth years were spent living on a farm. I did milk cows for a couple years. All that ended when I went off to college. I always wanted to return to that life but it just didn't ever work out.
