We're not homesteders as such, but we do live a simple life that is in touch with the cycle of work and rest is evident throughout nature. Our approach to living, based largely on the reduction of wants and a mostly non-monetary return from our organic horticulture, bee keeping and other sorts of labor. Were living the good life along the Mississippi river valley in north eastern Iowa.

Congrats Brother Greg!
After a 36-year
career with the Council Bluffs Police Department in which he was able to
“do it all,” My brother Greg is turning in his badge.
Greg’s career also included 20
years, from 1987 to 2007, as the reserve officer training coordinator,
developing a curriculum of training based in part on the hiring
practices for full-time officers.
He also served for years on the
department training committee, working to bring advanced training
seminars to the department and participating agencies on K-9, firearms
instruction and murder investigations.
Greg moved to the criminal
investigation division in 2000, focusing on youth and elderly abuse
cases, sexual assault and general assignments for seven years. He moved
to the records division in 2010, serving as the point of contact for
residents that stop by the police station for a variety of reasons.
Awards earned during his service include two “Officer of the Year”
accolades from the Council Bluffs Rotary Club, the U.S. Police K-9
Association “Case of the Year” and a service award for his work as
reserve training coordinator.
Now he'll have more time for fishing and hanging with hi grandkids. Way to go BIG Brother!
