It's the last month of my celebrating 70 and HOMESTEAD'S 25th birthday. Nominate a public servant or a family member of one for a chance to win a copy of my inspiring book and maybe a lunch for you and three of your friends with Jerry and me at the homestead!
My nephew is a police officer in a large Midwestern city. He has a servant's heart, working nights, participating on the SWAT team, teaching at the academy and spending days getting to know the neighborhood he serves. I used...

June: A Homestead-Style Celebration for Fathers

My Dad was a dairy farmer as well.  Teenage girls looked up to him as a father figure. He shod many of their horses.  All without any charge.
Dad read books to me when I was a boy.  It gave me a life long passion to read and write. 
Books I liked the best:  Jack Among the Indians; Thunderhead: and Little Knight of the X Bar B

May: A Homestead-Style Celebration for Mothers
When I was far from home and a freshman at the University of Wisconsin, my friend Ann's mom would invite me to Sunday dinner every week. They lived in Madison -- a big city for someone who'd graduated with a class of 84 kids. My freshman class was 7,000.  A...

Thanks to Linda for sharing this. Libraries often struggle like homesteaders. They work to keep their doors open, to have funds for collections and to be of support to their communities by offering computers for job searches, fax machines and great reference librarians! Nominate your favorite library today!

which is of course what we had to do to build our life on the river though that
didn't mean we didn’t have to make many changes to our plan along the way.
That's w...
