FOOTBALL! Always an exciting time in our neck of the woods. The rivalries are deep and at times without mercy. There will be trash talk. There will be hurt feelings. In the end though, there will be food and beers and everyone gets along again. The NFL this weekend had a slew of great playoff […]

Growing up in a small rural town most of us that played football had one simple instruction for getting in a good workout during the off-season: go toss hay bales. The act of catching them off the baler and stacking them on a wagon, throwing them from a big caged wagon and stacking them, or […]

Have you ever been dared to eat or drink something? Whether it’s super spicy or maybe some exotic entree we’ve all had that moment of wondering whether or not we could stomach the food placed in front or us or whether we could tolerate the heat.
