I have been a hay and forage grower/dealer/broker since 1980...selling throughout the country. I also have a small Red Angus seedstock herd, and sell quite a bit of firewood in the Des Moines, Iowa area. I am involved in several State-Wide Action Teams at the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, and am the past Warren County GOP Co-Chair of the Central Committee. I also am very involved with learning foreign languages, of which I know French, all three dialects of Irish Gaelic (Gaeilge), American Sign Language of which I am fluent, working on learning Scots Gaelic (Gàidhlig), and several words in German. I know at least a few words in another 12 languages. I teach a little bit of Irish Gaelic in the area as well.
I am also very involved with my kids music departments and the Band and Vocal Boosters. I am the official "fix-it and go-to guy" that has everything anyone would need to fix any loose screw or part on any instrument, while at marching band competitions. :o)
