Such religious experiences are beyond reason and scientific explanations. It is almost like sitting around a fire with a dozen Indians ingesting peyote buttons.
Though we are within a 22-mile radius of Bean Blossom’s Annual Bluegrass Festival, we are jus’ ‘chillin’ on the ranch. The bluegrass tunes on the stereo are on high, concert-level volume and acts like Bill Monroe and the Bluegrass Boys come back to life.
In reality, an observer could remark that we are just a bunch of Indianans stoned in front of a bonfire. The hallucinations are novel, amusing, fun, funny, and puzzling at all the same time.
The heat of the summer has recently chilled down and there is a fresh steady breeze coming over from the southwest.
You could see two sets of clouds:
- The high flying white puffy cumulous, and
- The secondhand reefer clouds of gray smoke.
It is wonderful taking Sundays off.

Teddy Roosevelt was known for his progressive policies. One of his nicknames was Trust Buster because his administration used existing antitrust laws to fight against corruption in the railroad, oil, and other industries.
His policies concerning trusts and labor reform were part of what he called the “Square Deal.”
Upton Sinclair wrote about the disgusting and unsanitary practices of the meat packing industry in his novel The Jungle. This resulted in the Meat Inspection and the Pure Food and Drug Acts in 1906. These laws required the government to inspect meat and protect consumers from food and drugs that might be dangerous.
Roosevelt was well-known for his conservation efforts. He was known as the Great Conservationist. During his time in office, over 125 million acres in national forests were set aside under public protection. He also established the first national wildlife refuge.
In 1907, Roosevelt made an agreement with Japan known as the Gentleman’s Agreement whereby Japan agreed to slow the immigration of laborers to America and in exchange the U.S. would not pass a law like the Chinese Exclusion Act.
“Bully!” T.R. would exclaim when pleased and excited – Who in this day and age will show similar ethics, initiative, and leadership.
