My views


No more big city for me
Central Illinois Cornfields are part of my world now.

I found this quote yesterday and it pretty much sums up how I feel,
... besides it was written by a noble Irishman!

Life is no brief candle to me. It
is a sort of splendid torch,
which I have got a hold of for
the moment; and I want to
make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.”


George Bernard Shaw
Irish writer
