Silver Linings

Silver Lining has all the posts related to a column Jill started writing daily, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

It is looking at how life changes under our new rules–and finding at least one thing positive, every day, in the upheaval.   It’s been very well received by those who have been following it.  As one reader says, “Reading your column of ‘silver linings’ has become one of my ‘silver linings’!  Thank you for writing this!”‘

Other blog topics include: 

  • DAIRY DREAMING is directly related to agriculture, particularly dairying.  It talks about international ag experiences, dairy worker possible legislation in the USA, visas, dairy experiences and things dairy producers might find interesting. 
  • EXCHANGE EXTRAS.  This is a special look into the high school exchange students’ fun while in the USA.  
  • EDUCATION MATTERS.  This more traditional column looks at family life, with a particular emphasis on how education shapes us all.
  • BEAUTY OF THE DAY.  Since 2015, Jill has searched for something beautiful every day, and then posted it to social media.  (Follow Global Cow on Instagram to see them–or subscribe to receive them daily.)
