Getting Back to Basics

I have truly become the happiest “unemployed” person I know.  Being terminated after 12 years of slavery motivates one to look for other avenues not previously considered.  Since I decided to start a business that supports fair trade, handmade items, and green living, I find I now have the time to seek out local attractions, artisans, and festivals.  Better yet, I can truly put to practice the “Think Globally, Act Locally” concept.  And the best part is . . . I can share the fun with other like-minded people and hopefully encourage others to disconnect from the virtual world and start taking part in the physical world.  To get you started, come with me and we’ll visit Hanley Farms, a century farm (100 years old) filled with activities for kids of all ages (like me!).  In the next series of vlogs, we’ll hop on a wagon and see how the pioneers lived back in the days of old.  First stop . . . old time haying & tractors (did you know John Deere made a bubble machine back in 1949?)
