Fondest greetings dear listeners and I wish you all the very best on this calm,bright,T uesday morning.


Words can hardly describe the  past weekend. Many well planned events had to be deferred or cancelled while people just looked out at the rain and storms. Silage-making which was in full swing  was brought to a sudden stop, as  the heavy rains lashed the land.
