In earlier American rural life, communities raised barns because many hands were required. These events occured in a social framework with a good deal of interdependence. Members of rural communities often shared family bonds going back generations. They traded with each other, worshipped with each other and celebrated with each other. Barn raisings were an integral part of life and socializing.

In our modern American life, communities don't mean nearly as much as they did back then. It is our family's goal to bring a sense of community back to our lives and those lives that touch ours.

This Stinks

This stinks. The post that I spent so much time on the other night didn't get saved, let alone posted. My blog hasn't allowed me to sign in for days. Now I finally can and I have a lot of catching up to do. So be forewarned, I will be double and possibly triple posting tonight. That makes for a lot of reading for you tomorrow. Until then, wish me luck!
