Six Inches and a Work Ethic

Paul Harvey once said, “Man – despite his artistic pretensions, his sophistication, and his many accomplishments – owes his existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.” While I’m not disputing his statement one bit (I mean it is one of my all time favorite quotes), I also tend to think there's another pretty important factor: work ethic.

This picture is actually of my great-great grandpa Charlie and was taken in the fall of 1957. At that time he, along with his son, Ray (my great grandpa), farmed 1800 acres along with keeping cattle. Just the two of them. With this equipment.

Coming from the age of autosteer and Roundup, I honestly have a hard time grasping just how much they had to do to keep their farm successful. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not afraid of hard work by any means, but the thought of doing all the work that that farm would entail kind of blows my mind. Even if I had wanted to I wouldn’t have been able to do it between the open cab equipment (asthma and dust don’t mix) and the intense manual labor (absolutely zero upper body strength), but I am so grateful that those that came before us had the work ethic to get the job done. They paved the way for amazing advances in the industry and set up a solid foundation for American agriculture today.

When we were looking through some of these old pictures, my grandma started talking about her years as a farmer’s daughter born in the 1930’s and a grain elevator owner’s wife running the scalehouse. She said 1956 was a year she’d never forget because not only was it the year she got married, but it was the year they raised 100 bu/A corn which was something no one in the area thought possible at the time. Sixty years later we’re raising more than double that per acre. I’m thankful that each generation before us has worked to make improvements in every aspect of the ag industry.

Seed genetics.
Chemicals.
Fertilizer.
Equipment.
Breeding.
Management.

I could keep listing things off, but I think you probably get my point.

Six inches of topsoil and rain may lay the groundwork for us, but I’d say the incredible work ethic of past generations to keep improving and building something better for us today is the cornerstone.

  • My name is Harriet Sandra from the USA/Texas.. Am so overwhelmed with gratitude to let the world know how Astrologer Hakeem Ahamed, the great powerful spell caster changed my life for good. It all started when I lost my job and I was down financially and emotionally because I couldn’t be able provide for my two kids and staying home all day Jobless it’s not easy until I was checking on the internet when I saw a series of testimonies hearing people winning the Powerball lottery, I didn’t believed, but being poor no job you have no option. I gave it a try and I contacted Astrologer Hakeem Ahamed who told me what i have to do before I can become a big lottery winner and I accepted. He made special prayers for me in his temple and gave me the required numbers to play the lottery game and when I used the numbers to play it, I won a massive $344.6 million Powerball jackpot. I was so happy and I choose to review my winning in any platform, I would love other people to seek help from Astrologer Hakeem Ahamed through WhatsApp and Call: +27788392740 or email,hakeemahemd98@gmail.com/

  • Many people still question whether love spells work or not, permanent or effective. This can be based on past experiences where they tried some spell casters but were not fully satisfied with their results or the love spells worked for just a short period and sometimes even never saw any results. To avoid such situations you have to be careful with the spell casters you approach, some are limited with certain Spiritual powers to cast good love spells to help people in their relationships or marriages. Many good love spell casters are out there in the world (Africa, Asia, and so on) Yes, love spells really work, whether you are in a situation where you want to bring back your lost lover (lost lover spell), you want to get married to someone in a relationship (marriage spells), to increase love in your relationship (love affection spells) and many other related love spells, you will get help. It does not matter where you are or where your partner is, you don’t have to be unhappy about a situation you can solve,https://africanacientspellscaster.com, it is all about finding a good love spell to change your love life.
