From the moment you first get up in the morning you make choices. As your feet hit the floor, you can decide to look at things on the positive side and thank God that you did wake up or you can decide to spend the day looking at what happened to poor me. I’ve always noticed that if you think positive then you and others around you will enjoy the day better.
This week is the beginning of Saint Patrick celebrations. In some places, Saint Patrick’s Day is March 17 but in the valley, it lasts a week or two. Some critics say, “look at all those drunken Irishmen.”
In a valley that was carved out of the wilderness by Irish or those who descended from Irish most people wear a little green and celebrate at least one day.
Next week, from March 13 to March 15 it is the Ottawa Valley Farm Show (OVFS) where millions of dollars worth of new, shiny equipment will take centre stage and hundreds of new ideas in farming will be introduced. Farm families will take the kids to see the new tractors.
