Tim's Tip of the Day

It is a very difficult thing to understand but children are growing up in a world that we could not have imagined when we were kids. iPods and TV on demand are shaping children or visa versa. I know one little girl who's favourite TV programme is "Mythbusters." (Click on thumb nail to see full size.)

When looking for a bright side rice comes to mind but it has been to cold for that to have grown maybe farmers should consider wild rice for next year.

September 3, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Tisdale: Given the nature of the last century there is really nothing new about the present.
