Hi! I am from the very NW corner of Iowa. I live on a farm near a very small town, pop. 126; no traffic lights at all. If you're driving through our town, chances are you have taken a wrong turn somewhere as we are not on any "beaten path."

We live in the midst of corn and soybean fields, and also raise pigs, farrow to finish. I love living on the farm and think it is a really great place to raise kids!

Hi 22 busy Great to have you you here. Hope you enjoy this side of FunTrivia.

I'm on a farm too - we have sheep and goats and I totally agree with you about it being a great place to raise kids.

Everybody's life is interesting, 22B. We all have stories to tell and things to say...it's all in the amount of energy we feel in telling about them.
