This just appeared on Scots-L. I thought you might find it at least
midly
diverting.

Sorry to those on both lists who have seen it already.

Eight farmers in the town of Nemaha, Iowa (population 112), have taught
themselves to perform various square-dancing routines (do-si-do's,
promenades, etc.) while seated on, precisely maneuvering, their
tractors,
according to a June San Francisco Chronicle dispatch from the heartland.

However, an apparent problem for the farmers is that all are males,
while
square-dancing is a couples activity. Thus, four of the dancers operate
their tractors while in calico skirts, under the apparent belief that
cross-dressing is more acceptable than having an overtly same-sex dance
partner.

"In the great conflict of life, conducting yourself with honour and
integrity may cost
you many battles, but will never lose you the war."
