Grandfather’s Rules for Safe Milk

When his last sister was 5, Grandfather sold his dairy farm, and moved on. He started a number of businesses, every one of which was successful. He even prospered during the Great Depression. He became wealthy, and retired at age 40. But money was not everything. He told my father that the best time of his life was when he had the dairy, and was getting up at 3:00 each morning to milk the cows. My father was surprised, and asked why. Grandfather said that making good milk that made children grow up strong and healthy was the best thing he ever did, and he should never have done anything else.
What a great story.  Read the whole thing.

UDPATE: This is by the same Stanley Fishman as the earlier post, btw.  Entirely by coincidence; it's not Stanley Fishman day.
