    We were at the Michigan cherry festival one year and they had to import the cherries from Washington state because of a cold spring that kept the local ones from ripening in time.

    Winter is about half the reason for sauerkraut, kimchee, and canned goods. How to get vegetables in winter.

    Now, it can be by shipping in from an area with opposite seasons.

    at least in the "value" stores. The places where you save money.

    The higher-end stores in my area use local farmers, but they aren't trying to be cheap.
    You can tell by what kind of cars are in the parking lot
    And by the looks of the women going in and out of there

    Kind of like iron.
    Its cheaper to ship it halfway around the world than it is to make it here.

    We demand fresh produce every month of the year. You can get cantaloupes in January because we'll pay farmers in Chile to grow them.

    That was from way back. You will do just as I have done. Build up for the project (pie in the sky) and never get to it. Dont be that, Me. Mr,,, JR
    Way too late for that. If I wanted to fix that issue, I’d sell out of my machine tools 100% and take up mackerel fishing at the pier in Maine with my spare time.

    In other words, unless your last name is Glidden, you don't have to worry about it.

    That’s another option. Between going to work, working on the rental property, and the fact the truck is up in Maine and not where my own shop is in Florida, it’s best I have some one else do it. At least get it driveable. I’m going to re-arrange my shop to keep the middle open so I can work on it.

Look like the wrong person, have the police do a "geofence search" and find your 'phone, etc, etc. Police as a rule keep after the person they arrest, even to deep-sixing legitimate testimony that you were elsewhere..



    I suspect a lot closer to your meaning than you might think. Check history
    Here's a case of "mistaken identity" I just read about.

    So my issue is finding a “long block”. Hell, maybe I’ll tell him to get an available short block and build up from there.

    Now I’m thinking of a generator to protect the freeezer..
    Yeah, I love the Sears name. I grew up with the name if not the tools (Kenmoore driers). No, we didnt have any sears tools, Broke folks . We did have the big Fat catolouge though. Wish Book,,, JR
