    We get tons of lightning storms in the summer, and I do have a lightning rod on my barn, required by local code when it was built. I don't think the barn's ever been hit, though. I'll be honest...

    My dad died a year ago. He lived to start fights with people in his family. It got to the point that I didn't want to talk to him anymore because I was just done with it, and as an adult, I firmly...

    So, if your money's tight, I'd advise against taking on...

    There's a reason my place is affectionately called "Now or Never Ranch". I am 62, and bought this place almost 8 years ago. I knew if I waited I'd talk myself out of it. It's been fun,...
