I've written maybe a dozen articles for a couple of farm publications over the years.  You never know what is going to generate calls.  Some of the articles that I thought I would get calls on I got nothing and then there'd be one that kept the phone ringing for a month.  And once in a while you get a call where you wonder what planet the guy is calling from and how the H you are going to ever get him off the other end of the phone.  So its not always bad when you get no calls.

And FTR I kind of liked Doreen's streams of consciousness.  Its a whole different ballgame when you have to write to a deadline.  Its no big deal to write a guest article that is scheduled to run "sometime".  Its another cat altogether when you have to churn out a new piece of prose every month.

Jack and Chaz,
I for one, have enjoyed your articles.  Well written and good pics.  Thanks for all your efforts!  Without guys like you, who will make an effort, look what the rest of us would miss.  Good going.
Dennis

I have published three articles and feel good about contributing.  I have a fourth in the works. 

Many years ago, I wrote an SAE technical pager on the subject of the statics of belt fatigue failures based on laboratory testing.  I got a call from a heart valve manufacturer asking how they could go about establishing a test program to determine their product life expectancy!!  I wish I had recorded the name of the company so that when my aging ticker needs a rebuild, I could avoid that supplier  Grin

Chazwood, your articles are the only thing in the magazine my wife reads.  Of course, I'm not sure what that means...on several levels... Huh Grin
