I just read Cliff's post today. It really made me start thinking. Those of us who are not farmers, especially those of us who live in cities, really do not have a clue as to what is involved in getting the food we eat into our kitchens and onto our tables. At the moment, he is concerned because it has not stopped raining long enough for him to get his corn planted. It's a ripple effect, isn't it? How many other jobs depend on the farmer? And ultimately, we do not have that corn to enjoy. Not to get all deep and dark, but it's worth some thought. Let's give that thought and maybe a prayer for the weather and the farmers out there, doing their thing so that we can have a good meal.
