Last night I caught a great talk by Mike Rowe on Ted.com. First, if you haven’t heard about TED, you need to go check it out. Some of the most amazing people on the entire planet speak there, and watching their talks is like crack. Watch one good one and you’ll be completely addicted. (Or maybe I’m a big dork)
I really agree with Mike about work and how the perception of manual labour has changed.
And yes, I have castrated more than my fair share of lambs, and a couple of cows. There’s also no happier place on the planet for me than renovating something with my parents. Manual labour is a great thing.
