Lyrics: We are the Peterson Farm Bros, and we're farming and we grow it We love agriculture, and we want the world to know it Farming is a way of life with many different flavors Being stewards of the gifts God gave us Out here on the farm, We're running green John Deere Tractors Out here on the farm, We work in many weather factors Out here on the farm, We're working hard to raise your food Out here on the farm. On the family farm. Agriculture, is so important to me, (and should be to you) HAY! It feeds the world and will never ever cease to be, We need to eat! We all need farmers to provide us with our food, food, food, food! Workin' farmer style. Farmer Style Work, work, work, work, working farmer style Haaaaaaay, for my cattle Work, work, work, work, working farmer style Haaaaaaay, from the field Work, work, work, work Farmers are working harder than you might imagine But that is just because we have a job that is our passion We will work sunup to sundown time and time again As if working for the Lord and not for men Out here on the farm We get away from lights of cities Out here on the farm The countryside is nice and pretty Out here on the farm. We work together as a family. Out here on the farm. On the family farm. Agriculture, is so important to me, (and should be to you) HEY! It feeds the world and will never ever cease to be, We need to eat! We all need farmers to provide us with our food, food, food, food! Workin' farmer style Hay, hay, hay, hay Is what we feed our cattle So they grow big and strong And then become the food that keeps us living nice and long. Our crops like corn and wheat Help make diets complete Without the farmers working We would all be starving You know what I'm saying? Workin' farmer style Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey Hey, thank the farmers! Hey, for your food!

Episode #209 - July 13, 2012 Perception Becomes Reality, Things Aren't Always What They Seem Welcome How to interact on Twitter: include #MktgUp in your tweet! On the show today is Ellie Mirman (@ellieeille) and Andrew Quinn (@andrewtquinn) As always, all the old episodes are in iTunes. If you like the show, please leave a 5-star review! Anyone is welcome to come by the show to watch as part of the live studio audience - 4pm Friday Headlines Awesome Content Down On The Farm http://www.marketingpilgrim.com/2012/07/social-media-farmer-style.html The Petersons kids live and work on a farm in Kansas and they created a video to LMFAO?s hit ?I?m Sexy and I Know It? called ?I?m Farming and I Grow It? Intended to show people what farming is really like It was posted two weeks ago and it?s got 5.5 million views - goes to show that a clever idea and a bit of work can create a powerful piece of content The idea came from Greg, 21, he and his brothers and sisters filmed it, and he produced it with iMovie and GarageBand software Marketing Takeaway: It doesn?t have to take millions of dollars to change the perception of your brand. Just be authentic and passionate about what you do and strive to create something honest and clever. You CAN break through and connect with your audience. Should You Believe Everything You Read? http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/09/business/media/newspapers-are-running-out-of-time-to-adapt-to-digital-future.html?_r=1pagewanted=all http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2012/04/can-an-algorithm-write-a-better-news-story-than-a-human-reporter/ The NYTimes reported a bunch of cases of local newspapers publishing fake or inaccurate stories, for example: a Pennsylvania paper published a box score for a baseball game that never happened a number of Chicago papers published articles using fake bylines that were written in the Philippines Overall, newspapers are trying to make big cuts - trying to get articles on the cheap Some reporters have started turning down job opportunities at print-focused newspaper/media companies, because of the low pay or the unstable future of the industry Wired ran a story a few months ago on how some newspaper companies were using computers to write news stories - based on a few facts around a story (for example a baseball game), they could fabricate a whole story without a human being Marketing Takeaway: Automation may help cut costs, but consider the cost of irrelevant and inaccurate content. Consider how your content is perceived because they may not appreciate your off-the-mark automated content. British Airways Gets Up Close and Personal http://travel.usatoday.com/flights/story/2012-07-08/British-Airways-Googles-VIP-fliers-so-crew-recognizes-them/56098494/1 British Airways Launched a new program called Know Me They distributed 2,000 iPads to look up the Google images of a select group of VIP customers to recognize them They also have a database of frequent fliers that messages to crew members and ground staff with flight history and preferences to deliver more personalized service Trying to change the perception that being an airline passenger amounts to no more than you being human cargo Some passengers think it?s a little creepy - the key may be just letting people know this is happening Marketing Takeaway: Technology gives you the power to build stronger relationships with your customers. Make sure they are clear on what you are doing and you can create an awesome experience for your customers. Retargeted Ads Go From Creepy to Helpful http://www.marketingpilgrim.com/2012/07/consumers-see-retargeted-ads-as-a-nice-reminder-and-an-easy-click.html Bizrate Insights did a study on how people feel about retargeted ads and found that 60% feel neutral about them, 25% like them, and only 15% dislike them Specifically the people who liked them felt they were ?good reminders? of a site or product they had meant to look at Of the people who clicked on the retargeted ads, the #1 reason was because they liked the product, and the #2 reason was because ?it is a convenient way to visit a website I already intended to visit? (~28% of respondents) Marketing Takeaway: If something hasn?t worked in the past, it doesn?t mean that it won?t work in the future. People?s perceptions change, so keep testing your marketing approaches to see what will work now.

I'm doing an experiment to see which water soluble fertilizer works best in a hydroponic setup. This experiment will compare Masterblend, Jacks Triple 20, Base Miracle Grow, and the Miracle Grow Tomato formula. edit: Jacks does make a lineup of hydroponic fertilizers that would likely be a better option than the triple 20. Here's a link... http://www.jrpeters.com/Products/Hydroponics/Buy-Hydroponics.html The goal here is to see if it's possible to use the last 3 fertilizers without any additional supplements, and to compare the overall results. It is not intended to discourage the use of either of them, as they all have situations where they could be of benefit. This is simply a side by side experiment to see how well they do at growing lettuce. I would like to do some further testing with organic water soluble fertilizers for the folks who prefer to grow organic. Thus far, I haven't found anything except liquid. If you know of an organic water soluble fertilizer, please let me know. http://www.facebook.com/mhp.gardener
American History: Southern Colonies Develop on Farming Economy TEXT SIZE 10/18/2012 From VOA Learning English, this is THE MAKING OF A NATION -- American history in Special English. I'm Steve Ember. This week in our series, we finish the story of the first thirteen American colonies. We'll tell about how the southern colonies developed. Among the southern colonies, the northernmost was Maryland. The king of England, Charles the First, gave the land between Virginia and Pennsylvania to George Calvert in sixteen thirty-two. George Calvert was also known as Lord Baltimore. He wanted to start a colony with greater religious freedoms than existed in England. Calvert was Roman Catholic. Catholics could not openly observe their religion in England. They also had to pay money to the government because they did not belong to the Anglican Church, the Church of England. George Calvert never saw the colony that was named Maryland. He died soon after he received the documents giving him the land. The land went to his son Cecil Calvert, who became the next Lord Baltimore. He had the power to collect taxes, fight wars, make laws and create courts in Maryland. Cecil named his brother Leonard as the colony's first governor. Cecil Calvert believed that English Catholics could live in peace in Maryland alongside Protestants. So he urged Catholics in England to move there. To get more settlers, he allowed people to own farms and gave them some power in local politics. Some Catholics did go to Maryland, but not as many as he hoped. Protestants were in the majority. In sixteen forty-nine, Lord Baltimore accepted a Toleration Act passed by the local government. It guaranteed freedom of religion, but only for Christians. King Charles the Second gave away more land in America in sixteen sixty-three. He gave eight English lords the territory known as Carolina. It extended south from Virginia into Florida, an area controlled by Spain. Spain also claimed the southern part of Carolina. Spanish, French and English settlers had tried earlier to populate the area. The eight new owners promised forty hectares of land to anyone who would go to Carolina to live. They also promised religious freedom. The first successful Carolina settlers left England in sixteen seventy. They built a town in an area where two rivers met. They called it Charles Town, for King Charles. Spanish ships attacked the port city many times, but the settlers defended their land. The settlers planted all kinds of crops to see what would grow best. They found that rice was just right for the hot, humid conditions. Also, their cattle and pigs did so well that the Carolina settlers started selling meat to the West Indies. Many of Charles Town's settlers came from Barbados, a port used in the West Indies slave trade. The settlers began buying black slaves to help grow the rice. By seventeen eight, more blacks than whites lived in the southern part of Carolina. The success of the farming economy depended on slave labor. http://learningenglish.voanews.com/content/slavery-cotton-colonies-southern-states/1528625.html
A small and picturesque wasabi radish farm in the high mountains of central Japan. Wasabi horseradish is used in Japan with sushi and sashimi as well as with other meals such as cold soba noodles. Wasabi is derived from the root of the wasabi plant which requires very clean, fresh water to grow well. The mountains of the Japan Southern Alps receive abundant rainfall and this area is perfectly suited for growing wasabi. Farmers in these high mountains have for centuries grown wasabi in terraced fields similar to rice paddies, however wasabi fields are normally situated much higher in the mountains than rice fields. While hiking in the mountains here it is not uncommon to find small wasabi farms situated along the narrow course of fast running streams or at the base of cascading waterfalls. ---- My name is Kurt Bell and I am delighted that you have taken some time to share a little of the experience of life with me.

The stages of living between these events: childhood, adolescence, adulthood, parenthood and senior are themselves natural and in accord with the needs of the species and most individuals. Many find their satisfaction in living this course and to these individuals I have little or nothing to say. Others though long for something more; something innate, genetic and seemingly calling. Adventure and change can give a degree of satisfaction and relief yet even these may seem too tame. To those who feel drawn to something beyond the entertainment and stimulation of senses I offer a walk along The Path of Wildness. Don't bother penciling the event in your schedule, preparing a pack with goodies and supplies or even inviting a friend along, for this experience is along the course of your first inclination and you must surely always go alone.
