 We have a lot of problems around here with city folks moving to the country then trying to shut down local farms because of the smell  ::) :D . They must use the "I was here second and 2 is a bigger number" rule.  ;)

Scott,

We've got a bill in our state house this year that requires sellers to notify buyers if surrounding properties are working farms. That way, they've got nothing to complain about.  ;)

Oh, we got a major problem locally with the "smelly farm" type people, but in my case, it's a rod 'n gun club.  The club's been there for several generations, and the area's sprouting new and semi-expensive homes for city folk, or at least suburban yuppies, and they're all complaining about the gunfire.  Never mind the club was there first, never mind that the local cops all use the range for practice and training - it's loud and it's unpleasant and it disturbs everyone's saturday afternoon.    Now the Town board is trying to pass a noise ordinance with no provision for grandfathering the club in.   None of the board members are club members.  

Can't do what you want on your own land anymore.

Working harder is subjective - depends on the person.   A lot of city people may say they work hard, but at what?  Sitting in an office chair shuffling papers?  Yeah, you may have a higher stress level if you live and work in a city, but the only people who work hard are the trades and the garbage collectors.   I live in a very small rural town, and if you asked me who were the laziest people in the community,

well, I'd tell you, but not on a public forum.   ;D

Engineer, feel free to PM me , I am willing to bet, our thoughts are one in the same!


All the farmland around here is being bought up and turned into "luxury homes, starting at the low 400,000's


to me, there is no such thing as Low 400,000's  ::)

Like I said, as soon as I finish my 20 years , I am outta here!

We have had that clause in the buy/sell here for years.
Even have those scratch & sniff handouts at the town hall.
People move in, deal with the noise/smell for 6 months, then start creating a fit.
Their brand new house is worth more then the ones that were there, so they win!

The Air Base where I work has been here since before WWII, all surrounded by farmlands...But in the last 20 years housing plans and strip malls have surrounded it.

Now the hooty tooties want to close the base since our jets make too much noise and endanger thier well being.  We almost never fly missions at night, usually never past 10 pm unless it's mission essential or a transient aircraft stopping in for fuel / repairs.



Um.... it's not jet noise, thats the sound of freedom and the base been here since before most of them were born, so tough nookies!

City folks...... they are a funny breed of people.

Around here, its the city folk moving out to the subdivisions next to the gas and oil wells then complaining about the smell and risk. Hey people, those wells are fueling your standard of living and they didn't move. You did.

City people have laws to make them get along, country people have manners.

Years ago my brother in law,who grew up in the same small town as me had a 1 ton with a flatdeck and a ball hitch that extended out the back. The truck had a standard transmission and he never really had a problem with it except one time when he was in the city.
He was at a stop light and he didn't go fast enough for the guy behind him when the light turned Green.When the guy honked his horn,it somehow caused BIL's truck to shift into reverse.The steam from the other guy's radiator seemed to fix the problem right up and he never had any problems with the transmission after that.

Never honk at a tractor pulling a loaded manure spreader to speed up. Especially if you are in a convertible.
