Disclaimer: I agree a professional-looking head shot is absolutely necessary for my website. It will be on my home page and is on my list of things to do.

In the meantime I'd like to add a photo to compliment the blurb about my family farm on the "ABOUT ME (http://www.shemkellogg.com/about-me/)" tab of my website



Shem Kellogg is a twelfth-generation New Englander. Though his parents were, like many, apathetic about politics, they managed to foster in Shem a desire to work to achieve those things he valued most. Perhaps this was an outgrowth of running a small family farm because, as he tells it, “Growing up on a farm, you can really appreciate the fruits of your own labor.”

The farm also provided an education in the burdens caused by regulations. His father had grown up on the same farm, an operational dairy farm at the time, but regulations began to squeeze their revenues and eventually pushed the family out of the dairy business. By the time Shem was working the farm, it had transformed into a roadside farm stand, peddling pumpkins, other types of squash, and cornstalks.

Do you have anything where you are clean shaven and wearing a suit? If so, that is best. Perceptions matter.

[edit: the bearded guy is his dad, he is the boy]

I like where you are going with that. Maybe there should be a separate thread on if it is best to be clean shaven when running for office or to have a beard. In NH, beards are extremely common but not like in photo 1. That's pretty out there unless you are in the sticks.

Stay away from corn stalks. :)

Oh, never mind. I just looked at the poll itself and didn't see the pictures. I thought you just meant a random picture of a corn field or something. I still picked the wagon ride anyhow. Although that cornstalk picture was good too.

To clarify, I am not trying to be a smart ass. I am pretty unkempt myself, but then again, I am not running for office. Libertarians have this bad rap of being hippie-like, so I don't want that to be a handicap. The low-information voters vote on perceptions alone. I didn't know the bearded guy was his dad, so it's moot anyway. But if there is a clean-shaven pic of his dad, that's better. Here it looks like his dad walked off of Summer of Love.

Is the wagon connected to the tractor? Just wondering.

I think the tractor is slowly backing up onto that "two pole ramp" in order to pick up the kids. Seems dangerous.

Good luck SKforNH

I never heard of anyone selling an old cornstalk.

That aside it isn't saying much for the value of a dollar.

I'd photoshop helmets on you and the other kids, seat belts and turn dad around so he is actually watching where he is going. :)

Thanks in the northeast (?) in the fall people use corn stalks to accompany pumpkins. Kind of like wreaths I guess

Glad it won. Now to get permission from anyone in the photo? Also, it has more than 1 body, which means folks won't know which 1 is you. I'm not sure if that matters, but it's an interesting point.

Yeah. I guess I've seen that here too.

I never thought you could turn a buck on them. I've just been sort of kicking and cursing them away.

in 1913, you could fill your whole barn with cornstalks for one dollar.

Today, that same dollar will buy you exactly one dried-up cornstalk.

fuggin' banksters.

It would be nice to see more pictures of you (Nice memories were brought to mind by the pic of you and Sarah in the wagon). Best of luck to you, Shem. If you need any assistance in the way of a typist or bulk mailing help, etc. let me know; would love to help out if I can.

Looks good.

I don't remember what my first choice a while back was at the moment. Looking at the pictures again it looks like you've got about everything in the corn picture. A success at life.
