Acceptance

As the Manure truck backed in this morning  I was thinking of all the types of  Bullshit and Horseshit  there is in life , and there is no getting around it . When a truckload comes you're way (and it will )  Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.  Acceptance of what has happened is the first step to overcoming the consequences of any misfortune.

It smells like Chanel  No.5  to me

Dirty old man....

Well the title was either "Dirty old man"  or  "Full of horse shit" .. even though  neither one is correct . Every year   I compost organic material by the  truck load,  most of witch comes from a local horse  track ( horse shit).  The result is my farm has healthy organic soil ( not dirt) .   Every April at the end of the season  I get a Backhoe  and go to work spreading and moving compost  piles.  In Miami-Dade  most of our farm land is shallow rock land . East of the Turnpike  some areas have up to 1 ft. of Marl ,  however most of  that area has been developed  .  So if you want to be an Organic Farmer in Miami-Dade you have to compost on a large scale.
