Do your research before moving to the country

To The Herald-Whig:

The problem is, L.B should have thought twice before she moved home.

Her parents lived in the country and accepted country life. It has its pros and cons, and one "con" is odor from animals.

Do we want to eat? If we do, we must realize there is an odor to some food production. (Especially at the price we like to pay in the grocery store and for the availability of the food.)

Most important of all, the farmer was there first. People should do their research before they move to the country. Living in the country is quiet, beautiful and private, but it is also mosquito infested, smelly (at times), and dusty.
