It is difficult to make a man miserable while he feels he is worthy of himself and claims kindred to the great God who has made him. ~Abraham Lincoln

Dear 100 Hour Board,

Ok, so I just read about the "Year of Jubilee" in L. Tom Perry's October Conference talk of 1999. The idea of farming for six years and then not farming on the seventh year is found in Leviticus, but is this still in practice somewhere today? And since they didn't sow or harvest anything for the entire year, how did they survive? On storage?

A: Dear Pharoah's #2-

"Jubilee" no more.
While fallow, soil recovered.
They ate food storage.
