Safety does not sound fun, but safety is a necessity around the Farm, Ranch and Cabin!
No one truly wants to see anyone physically hurt, injured for life or have death be the result of unnecessary actions that could have been prevented. Often if one is to scroll through social media, it almost feels as though “Common Sense” has gone out the window! Trends on TikTok or YouTube, for example, of jumping out of moving tractors while filming oneself doing so to jumping off of UTVs at the cabin, might get a few likes or be the latest #challenge – Just STOP. Please STOP. 
The actor/actress doing the activities – We get it! You are wanting the attention, be thought of as crazy or pushing limits; hate to break it to you – You are not achieving it. Instead you are risking your own life to become an instant sensation that will only be forgotten as soon as the daring act you took was overlooked. Ouch! We know – Truth Hurts.
The property owner of the machinery, UTV, or the land in which these acts are taking place – STOP THEM. Why? Because you are exposing yourself not just to the high risks of losing a loved one, if that’s not scary enough in itself, but also opening yourself up to liability lawsuits as the actions did take place on your property, using your property, etc.
Now that we have your attention, make a change this year and STOP feeding into the social media challenges and trends that really are only making someone else money at your expense.

Discovered for you, the perfect recipe for homemade Irish Soda Bread! Embrace the rich flavors of Irish tradition with just a few simple steps.

To start, gather 4 cups of flour, 4 tablespoons of white sugar, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, 1 tablespoon of baking powder, ½ teaspoon of salt, and ½ cup of softened margarine or butter. Combine these ingredients in a mixing bowl, creating the foundation of your bread.

Next, enrich the mixture with 1 cup of buttermilk, 1 egg, and if desired, 1 cup of raisins for a delightful twist. Blend all ingredients thoroughly until a dough forms.

Once mixed, gently knead the dough and shape it into a round loaf. Place it onto a baking sheet, ready to be transformed into a golden delight.

Before baking, don’t forget the signature mark of Irish Soda Bread – carefully cut an “X” across the top of the loaf. Then, brush it with 1 beaten egg white to achieve that perfect finish.

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius), and let the magic unfold as you bake your creation for 45 to 50 minutes.

Indulge in the aroma of freshly baked bread, and savor every bite of your homemade Irish Soda Bread. Remember us here at The Bend Show for more mouthwatering recipes and for your next culinary adventure!
