 Pretty good write up and nice photos.

All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

-- Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)

Man, you turn your back and the next thing you know everyone knows your business! ;-)

There is a another one of them up there as well that I wrote that tells what we are currently trying to do. That article nearly killed me off - Amy had to finish it.  :o

So, how did I end up here anyway?

By the way, a little about EcoWorld - I picked them because they try to combine business with the environment, instead of thinking that you must have one or the other. I don't know about the rest of you, but I am not rich enough to just donate large amount of money with no return so all I am trying to do is figure out how to help things be a little better all the time, and at the same time, have it pay for itself. I currently don't make anything from our operation - but we do have full-time and part-time employees who depend on us.

Of course I do have a lot of trees that I own that are growing very nicely!  8)

One of the things I really like about this group (besides being some of the nicest people I have met) is that is is made up of many people just trying to make things a little better. We won't go into everyone's sense of humor...  :D
