Rants from the Hill logoRants from the Hill are Michael Branch's monthly musings on life in rural Nevada. They are posted at the beginning of each month at www.hcn.org. You can subscribe to the podcast in iTunes, or through Feedburner if you use other podcast readers.

In April's Rantcast, also available in written form at our community blog, the Range, Mike mistakenly thinks a garden gnome is a good Mother's Day gift, and then creates an elaborate leprechaun trap with his two daughters.
