Dad, got a fathers day present for you. Thought that was rather unusual since just a phone call has sufficed in past years. He said,"found a dairy in Fond du Lac Wisconsin that now makes liederkranz cheese". We have not been able to find it in the last 30 years. Tried all kinds of searchs and inquiries but to no avail. Said I'm sending both of us 3 pounds of it. Liederkranz is a soft cheese somewhat reminisent of limburger but not near the very pungent odor, still rather stinky though but oh so good.
He was calling from his new tractor, an 8530 John Deere, he was putting down fertilizer. They are a very impressive looking tractor and he was complaining jokingly that it was hot, windy and so much work. Said the tractor wants me to turn it around at the end of the field. GPS does all the rest even applying different amounts of fertilizer as it traverses the field. Nice air conditioned cab with sattelite radio or CD player. Said,"even if I went to sleep it would stop at the end of the field and wait for me to turn it around".
I have never diven this machine but have been on his other tractors. Not sure I could grasp the electronics used to operate it. Instead of levers and pedals it has an imposing amount of buttons to push.
