If this is going to be a Christian nation that doesn't help the poor, either we have to pretend that Jesus was just as selfish as we are, or we've got to acknowledge that He commanded us to love the poor and serve the needy without condition and then admit that we just don't want to do it."

4H

Yes, I'm a proud grandparent. The twins are down from Susanville for another week long visit and swimming lessons. But just before they arrived, they had to auction off their 4H pigs at the Lassen County fair. My granddaughter had a 240 pound pig and it was the 4H Champion and sold for $15 a pound! Thank you NAPA auto parts. My grandson had a 242 pound pig and it sold for $7.25 a pound.  The twins are ten years old and this is their first 4H/County Fair experience. (the Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion pigs went for $10 a pound?)
