Lincoln’s employment in 2010

03 Dec 2010 | : blog

If Mr. Abraham Lincoln were alive in this day of increasing unemployment, what would he do for a job?

He wouldn’t be splitting rails, not much call for that these days; nor even flatboat shipping down the Mississippi as he did in his day on a wooden self made raft.

Not much Homesteading going on.

Lots of merchants failing now but then he did that too. No money in that.

And the practice of law as he did? Could he even pass the exam having never attended one of those law schools that exist now?

He couldn’t be President, as that job is presently taken.

Comedian? No he told clean stories not like those today.

Wrestler? He wasn’t that fake.

Well, what would he do for income?

How about sell pennies with his likeness on them?

What a good idea.


The Cows’ Taste in music.

Recording information by jaybeacham on

 Someone asked me if my parents sang. I told them about Mom always singing around the house and Dad singing to the cows while milking. I tried that but the cows didn’t like my singing. “How could you tell”, they asked. well when they kick you, the milk pail or swat with a mucky tail until you stop you get the idea.
Join the dialog. What do you think?

That’s my last take before I really massacre it.
Brenda, do you think the cows will like this one?

a GEORGIA song! yayyyyy!!!! loved this one very much! …and I’m sure the cows would like it too! ha ha

I replied:

I’d better explain the remark about cows for some of you.
My father used to sing to the cows at milking time. They’d settle down and milking was a breeze. So I started to try it but the cows took exception to my vocals and let me know it by kicking me, the milk pail, or just swatting me with their tails and giving me a reproving look and moo.

Say Beth, I sent my link a to Clara in Oklahoma who said her singing causes the dogs to howl and her kids to cry, This was her reply: Jay , I have to say I was quite suprised when I listened to your song, which by the way is a favorite of mine. Now I thought it was very good and I have saved it to my favorites. You are not Ray Charles but then who is ? and you will be happy to know that my two cows and 4 horses liked it.. thank you. Clara..

But then again, Utah cows may have a different temperament that those in other states and Holsteins may have more critical expectations than other breeds.

What do you think?

This is the song in question: the dialog. Leave your comments below.
