Hello, Just happened onto this site. Have used countryside and backwoods site before and glad to see there is another one too. I'm located in Missouri and operate a small grade A dairy farm. If anyone has a clue to where a person might find a personals site that caters to the country single I'd be interested. I have found most common sites have very little to offer the rural american. So any info would be great, and I have experience not only in dairy, but sawmilling as well, so if anyway I could be of assistance please feel free to email. At age 42, I've picked up quite a bit of useful info on both subjects. Thanks, Don

Welcome Don,
I have a farm too, but no cattle. I'm all so into saw milling, and have some pictures on line. Hope you enjoy them,

Try this link for on-line tree identification. Go get a twig with some leaves on it and bring it in next the computer. This site will tell you what you got.

Dave - my psycho trees are not on this list. Do you have a site for those? Something other than Yahoo personals? heehee

Robert in W. Mi.    Posted 05-03-2001 at 19:56:00       [Reply]  [Send Email]
There are several species of Popular, and yes what i have on my place, is a lot like the tree's you are refering to.
Popular is used for many things, from window frames, to sideing. I mill a lot of it into 2x6's to build with.

Don - my experience is that personals stink. My e-mail is if you want to shoot me a message. I'm 43, single, NC, and thinking about taking a trip to Missouri soon to look at a farm near Branson. Then I'll probably head a little further to the big state of Iowa and visit my buddy and resident board boyfriend, Hank, that is if I can recycle enough aluminum cans between now and then to make a go of it. Stear clear of them personal ads. Theys a bunch of crazies out there! I shook that psycho tree way back, and ALL the nuts fell in my yard! Welcome aboard!

Be care full Don!!
She don't have a tractor!!!

Don & Robert- Don't worry about Dreamweaver not having a tractor. If my on-line girl friend gets her travel plans right she'll come here first and help me put my '57 Farmall 450 back together. Then, she can test fly it to Missouri and show 'em in the "show me state" what a real tractor is.

Someplace in there mebbie she'll figger out the bit about 5 acres of bottom ground and 35 acres sliding down onto it from a 45 degree slope. From there she'll understand the benefits of skipping all the traveling hassles and take up with her mule skinner boyfriend in the hills of North Carolina.

Dreamweaver- Please advise your ETA at DSM Intl. I got barely enough gas money to drive the Love Bus and pick you up in style. Bring gloves and work clothes for fixing up the old Farmall.

Big grin to all, IHank

Don over at they have a singles board for farmer/ranchers.

I may go ahead and order a bride for 2 of my boys from www.siberianwomen.

The problem with siberian women is that they can whip a man in a fair fight so I don't know if that would be too abusive on the boys or not.

That's just what some of these "Boys" need now days. A good woman that can kick their butts once in a while,kinda like my ol'lady....Oh-Oh I said too much.

Would'nt that be better than have them take up with some yuppified big city female, Burrhead? Do they all chew snoose? Are there pictures at that site? Got a couple teen-age boys myself that i'd like to see find good country girls.

Hey Burrhead! Holding out valuable info from us single females? Thanks for the site....heehee....

Nawmam I was'nt holding back. My memory just aint as keen anymore.

Dumb Logger these old maid boys of mine are 24-and 20. I keep trying to tell them knuckle heads they better get a wife before all the good ones get spoken for, but H*** no they won't make a move.

They keep telling me that they don't make wimmin like I got with Ma Burr. I keep telling them that the modification on wimmin is to there benefit.

They work everyday at pretty fair jobs, they have nice homes and have even saved up a little money.

Ever time I find um a good woman fer one of um Ma Burr pitches a wall eyed fit about it.

Ma Burr said it just aint right for me to introduce the boys to the girls at church as my single and available hardworking, home loving son. I don't see any harm in it.

Whatever works is what is important.I been trying to get my oldest(25)married off to his girl-friend before he loses that girl. I'd marry her myself but my wife don't beleive like the Mormons. She's a good girl, smart and everything.
