MY VIEW FOR THE MONTH:
VIEWS OF A FARM BOY---JANUARY, 2006-DECEMBER, 2020.
I published my first edition of VIEWS OF A FARM BOY, January, 2006. I was looking for a new challenge in technology and I wanted to learn the HTML language. That is where you set up your whole page using a rather complicated system of type symbols (such as >><<<//**, etc.) I did that for several years before I switched to a web based format. Who ever thought that, after 15 years and 163 editions, I would still be at it. Another secret--my logo icon (above). It wouldn't take you many guesses to figure out I am completely unartistic. It took me probably 5 minutes to draw this using a graphics program that came with my old p.c. My first thought, "Ok, that's me" and I have used it ever since. Now to the subject matter! I have been very fortunate to visit many places (mostly local or central Iowa) and attended many events during the past 15 years. I have also recognized many anniversary and milestone occasions. I have made every effort to share these with you--in a positive and uplifting way. It goes way beyond "just me." Your response, critiques and comments have made VIEWS OF A FARM BOY a team project. I appreciate each and every one of you who have read (and sometimes passed along) my monthly posts. Thanks to my family for encouragement and support. Also, thanks to each and every one of you reading this right now--I love you all and consider you my "extended family".
VIEWS OF A FARM BOY--Dedicated to promote Iowa agriculture and Iowa values.

RETURN TO HOMEPAGE>>>>>>
And in the same region there were shepherds in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear. And the angel said to them, "Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find the baby wrapped in swaddling cloth and lying in a manger." (ESV) (Luke 2: 8-12)
