Here's wishing you a great Christmas. We're full of excited <7 yr-olds poised to open presents. Jan and I are up because that's what old people with old habits do. Meanwhile I still have to get ready for my bank meeting Tuesday.

Am I the only one who is continuing to be shocked by the hockey stick that is the business of farming? The numbers are relatively enormous compared with just a few years ago - and that's QuickBooks talking, not just me. Now add in I'm not farming the whole farm either - just about half.

In talking to farmers and those who work with us, I haven't heard one suggest our businesses could either stay this good or get better. And yet...

Oddly, I believe they can and very probably will. Moreover, I am convinced we are beginning to manage this prosperity slightly better each season.

Anyhoo, that outcome is what I wish for all of you guys.
