Thanks to whomever left the wonderful jars of canned goods and fresh carrots on the picnic table around noon today. I was down in the barn when you came and I don't know who to thank!
But a hearty THANK YOU from the Ofjord-Bailey clan on County Road 14!

If you have empty plastic medicine bottles, rather than throwing them...donate them.
In third world countries (especially rural hospitals and villages) often find themselves with nothing except torn pieces of paper in which to wrap medicine for their patients who may walk for miles to get medical help. You can help. All you need to do is: place your bottles in boiling water until you can easily remove labels and glue and then drop them off at ODDZ & ENDZ. We will ship them to the Malawi Project.
Check out Malawi Project on the web. It will help families in a third world country keep medicines clean, out of reach of small children, and safe while they are being used.

Sen. Franken Announces New "Veterans History Project" Initiative to Capture War Accounts from Minnesota Veterans
Senator Working with Library of Congress, Veterans AdvocatesTo Recruit Minnesota Veterans to Tell Their Stories
MINNESOTA [09/01/15]-0n Military Appreciation Day at the Minnesota State Fair, U.S. Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) announced a new initiative to recruit Minnesota war veterans to take part in the national "Veterans History Project" to collect and preserve their personal accounts so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand the realities of war.
Sen. Franken is promoting the effort at his State Fair booth to ensure that the voices of as many Minnesota war veterans as possible are part of the national Veterans History Project archives being collected by the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. The archives are available to everyone, including veterans and their families, as well as students studying American history and academic scholars researching American war efforts.
"Minnesotans have always proudly served our nation during times of war and we need to recognize those sacrifices and preserve their stories," Sen. Franken said. "To do that, my office is partnering with the Library of Congress on Veterans History Project to archive the accounts of Minnesota war veterans so that future generations understand their sacrifices. I'll be working with Minnesota veterans groups and advocates, as well as with schools across the state to encourage veterans and their families to tell their stories."
