    to our planet. This year my town celebrated 175 years. Founded by some Germans that came to New Orleans, then came north up the Mississippi to St. Louis. They bought all the supplies they could and started to walk east. They walked about 35 miles, came to a clearing where my home town would be founded, put a spade into the soil and started to both pray and cry.

    They were stunned there was so much untouched land, soil that was as dark as tar. Streams. Rivers. Lakes. Wild game everywhere.

    They contacted their families back in Germany and the next thing you know we have hundreds of folks here. Heck 175 years later I have to explain my last name is Young with a "Y" and not Jung :).

    Much of the land around me is still pretty untouched. There is a fierce hatred of companies like Monsanto and "corporate" farms.

    I don't know about fracking, but I do know the coal companies are chopping at the bit to get ahold of this land all around me.

    When opportunity calls pick up the phone and give it directions to your house.
