Building Barn Equity

23 03 2011

The phase B-E-A-U-TIFUL from the movie Bruce Almighty starring Jim Carrey comes to mind on a day like today. It was prefaced by sleeping with my windows open and began with a drive through the country with the windows down… and discovered that I can automatically roll down the right back window but I can only automatically roll it up using the button in the back…. odd.

Anywho. My rural route (pardon the pun) made me think of the theme of this blog and what blogging is all about. Wondering what blogging is about? Me too. But, if I had to guess… I would say it is about bettering oneself, others and our environment (literally, mentally and physically).

So my blogger advice for the day: Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.

Now where to apply this advice? Here:

I saw more decrepit barns than blades of grass…. okay that might be a little bit of an exaggeration. But still. I know repairing that old beast of another time period is costly and timely-two resources farmers never have enough of. However, small steps in the right direction can make a large difference.

Stave off rot and deterioration with a new metal roof. I know our family barn is missing a single or two going on several hundred… what better excuse to upgrade your barn and write it off on your taxes! Barns are not only nostalgic, great places for hoarding old equipment but they are also building equity:

Now, this is obviously not the only manner in which to utilize my daily advice but it is one way, and a great way at that!
