    where is dun?

    I got ahold of Dun late this afternoon. He and his wife are fine no major damage to the farm or cattle, just lots and lots of down limbs and no power. He seemed to think that it might be several more days before they get their power back. He said today was sunny and melted about half the ice...

    where is dun?

    I just tried calling him and got the 'all circuits are busy' recording. So I'm guessing they have a heck of a mess in that area.

    Best Comeback Line Ever

    I don't know how true this is but thought I'd pass it along ... Marine Corp's General Reinwald was interviewed on the radio the other day and you have to read his reply to the lady who interviewed him concerning guns and children. Regardless of how you feel about gun laws you gotta love...

    I assume that you mean when is the best time of year to plant wheat for straw and that would be sometime in the fall. Usually early Oct for my area but not sure about VA. No-till can work. It is harvested sometime (again for this area) late June/early July.

    Gaining respect in and around the industry - is it possible?

    I probably could have entertained my three year old grand dtr for hours with that. She of course wanted the kitty. I told her it was stuck in the computer. She told me to use a hammer to get it out.
