"....perservere at all costs and something will eventually give."

Nathalie,

Any idea how much taxpayer money was spent on throwing this gathering of 'Golden Shovel's soirée?

During these times of budget shortfalls, work week furloughs and lay-offs, are expenditures on events of this nature helpful? If so, for whom?

Kona

This cost was small potatoes compared to this most expensive project in ODOT history.

I've probably been listening to too many of those belt-tightening speech's that so many politicians have made since the near collapse of our economy, not all that long ago.

How'd your corn do this year, Kona, harvested mine the first and second weeks of August!.

Kona

No corn, just thousands of green tomatoes. Smart of you to grow corn this year with the drought in the mid-west. You got top price for your millions of bushels of corn.

It was an experiment, I'd grown it for seed for future use. Next year I'll grow it for dry storage and use it for making my own tortillas.Our bell peppers are doing quite well, and yours?

Kona

My peppers are as slow as my tomatoes. Oh well, still interesting watching them grow. Yup, I'm getting old.

I've noticed a significant rise in the bee population this year, have you?

Kona

No, bumblebees were nonexistent around our place. Honeybees were normal.
