American Pickers

Jake, the girls and I really enjoy watching American Pickers.  On our trip to our Feed Yard last week with the girls, we stopped to see the home place for the show of American Pickers. Their place is right off I80 as you cross the Mississippi River into Iowa.  This happens to be a half way point for the trip to 4+ Feeders.  Jacie walked right in and spotted a sign on the wall. She said, "I remember when they picked that".

We decided to walk across the street to where Danielle from the show has her own shop.  When we were walking up the hill, Danielle walked in right in front of us.  The girls were excited and she even took a picture with them. If you haven't seen American Pickers, you should tune in - it is a great show.

 *More to come on the working vacation to the Feed Yard this week.

  2. Tom and the boys are jealous. Blaine wants to go picking with them or have them come to Papa's to pick. That is our family show to watch and when we go to yard sales, Blaine will say"Hey Mike come look at this." Love it!

  3. These days, around half of all marriages end in divorce.

    That’s a pretty sad statistic… especially because so many of those divorces are preventable.

    In reality, many marriages end prematurely. Why? Well, there are two reasons.

    Neither spouse knows how to prevent the passion, intimacy, and romantic connection from gradually fading away.
    They make the 3 “Marriage Murdering Mistakes” that very few people know about… and sadly, these 3 mistakes can quickly drive your marriage into disaster and divorce.
    If you’re in this situation…

    If your marriage is dead-as-a-doornail…

    If you’re heading towards divorce, or even if you’re already at that point…

    Then a new video by marriage coach Brad Browning will show you how to stop the downward spiral and breathe some life back into your relationship. (Brad’s a freakin’ genius, by the way.)

    =>Begin Repairing Your Marriage *Today* <=

    I wish I could force every couple experiencing a marriage crisis to watch this new video… because the strategies Brad reveals in it are extremely powerful and might be the difference between “unhappily divorced” and “happily ever after”.

    The best part is that you can apply the techniques described in his video on your own… without your wife even being aware that you’re making an effort to save the marriage.

    So don’t lose hope just because your partner refuses to attend marriage counselling, or won’t put in the effort to fix the problems that are slowly eating away at your marriage.

    Watch the video now by clicking here: Transform Your Marriage in Minutes<=

    There’s no catch to this, and no marketing gimmicks… just a complimentary in-depth guide to saving your marriage.

    At the very least, you should watch the first few minutes where Brad reveals the 3 ‘Marriage Murdering Mistakes’… these 3 massive myths alone are a huge reason why nearly half of all marriages end in divorce.
