      1. Well, I use that term kinda loosely. Yes, we have a farm. But it’s pretty small-scale, and not primary income source. As for why, it was experiencing farm life daily for 3 months that swayed me. My wife was raised on a farm, which pushed us this way too. But, when I was in OT school, part of our requirements are 2 3-month level 2 fieldworks to be completed before graduating. My second one was in the vincinity of her family’s farm, so I stayed with them during my internship. I worked the farm every afternoon and every other weekend to earn my keep. Bush hogging, setting hay, delivering calves, laying fence, etc, etc. It was fantastic. I loved being outside all the time, and I kinda prefer physical labor and being covered in dust and dirt. It just clicked with me. I’d do it full time if I thought I could make a comparable living at it….and if I actually knew what the heck I was doing. 😃

      2. There is something about being outside and working. Time ceases to exist and it does create an incredible sense of satisfaction.

  1. Hmm… I’m not sure what’s “interesting” per se.

    I’ve also thought this was a fun “me” fact:
    I sang in the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris with my college choir in 2001.

      1. As the new guy in the garage, I was on the graveyard shift in a cab with no radio, so it was roaming where there might be fares and hoping for one to the airport. Also, Chicago has a strange street naming pattern. On the South Side, the East-West streets are named with numbers, but not so on the North Side, so I had to learn those (I did have a little cheat book.) Anyway it was hard, but I met a lot of interesting people. I was happy when I got the next job (Public Aid caseworker) and could quit the cab.
