    Farm-Raised Fish Operation

    The son and I had a really good thought-provoking discussion last week. About five years ago, while he was in high school, he helped author, submit, and get approval for a grant to build a hydroponics lab, including including raising fish in the system. I think he is "eyeing" utilizing an...

    For you old timers who remember KCSunshine. Her husband passed away today from liver cancer. It's been a terrible year of suffering. I had the privilege of meeting them about 5 years ago, they are wonderful folks. For those of you so inclined, please include them both in your thoughts.

    Medical Devices

    So an annoying little storm front blew through late afternoon/early evening with nothing more than high winds and a few microbursts. Just enough to topple some trees in the county and generate moderate power outages. I opened this thread because I really didn't see another thread discussing...

    Round bales of hay

    Now that it is actually light in the morning/evening on the way to/from work, it struck me how much hay I see sitting the fields in round bales, just rotting away. My grandfather would take a sickle bar mower to the wheat field after it was combined, using every stalk of straw he could. I...

    Native American Members?

    I remember years ago there were a couple of Native Americans here. Or maybe not, it's been a long day. :) Anyways, I have been struggling with something personal for over a year now, and I think our Creator spoke to me through a bluebird today. The context is not something I want to post in...
