Oh, oh, we are not talking about a 3rd World country. Is Sternsville in our future?

MCMINNVILLE, Tenn. - High gas prices have driven a Warren County farmer and his sons to hitch a tractor rake to a pair of mules to gather hay from their fields. T.R. Raymond bought Dolly and Molly at the Dixon mule sale last year. Son Danny Raymond trained them and also modified the tractor rake so the mules could pull it.

A fag (to my generation) is a cigarette. The term is polarised in its general use, which is usually in jest or sarcasm.

Doesn't matter much ...

I am afraid to ask...what is a "fag" in New Zealand speak? I guess that is a multiple choice question: either they are gays, cigarettes, or wooden sticks to light fires with--wait...that could be taken wrong.

... I hear Eli keeps *all* of the above in plastic bags. Evil

Ha ha, Sandi, I keep them

I must admit, I walked all the way home last Saturday morning...only took an hour and a quarter and was splendid exercise!

"Poor farmer hasn’t worked out his efficiencies unless he only has a small patch."

Well, if the patch is small enough, he can forgo the mules and hitch the freakin plow to his back!

Humorous Michael. Poor farmer hasn’t worked out his efficiencies unless he only has a small patch.

This chap is to be applauded!

Here is a splendid example of the free market at work, where someone instead of moaning about fuel prices, is doing something about it, and adding to his profits at the same time.

For those of you living abroad, here in New Zealand there is a great deal of hysteria about fuel prices and the great mass of people snivelling because petrol will soon be $2 per litre (I have no idea how much that is per gallon for you Americans).

I think they should either walk or get on a bicycle for free if they consider it too expensive, or take the bus or train.
