as a kid i grew up watching a show on wgn. in chicago
the show was called Family Classics. so i gew up on
the best movies i think.movis featured were
sink the bismark
the grapes of wrath
the wizard of oz
dracula
futigive from a chain gang
white christmas
gone with the wind
and one help me out here
it was a depression era movie
1930 or 40
starred a thn young burgess meridith
and lon chaney about two hobos
searching for farm work. awesome movie.
it was up for a academy award
at the same time when the grapes of wrath
gone with the wind and the wizard of oz were all released
that year 1939/40. so sad they don't make them like that anymore.
so what are your favorites of the old days.

one thing i've found with growing tropical friuts in minnesota.
that when you over winter them indoors.
you need a whole lot of humidity around 75-80 percent.
I once grew papaya plants from seed they got to about 3 feet
before they died, had 2 meyers lemmon bushes. 2,limes
and a few banana plants. it was not from lack of water somuch as lack of humidity.

That looks like a great, inexpensive tent for our climate. Plenty of ventilation. Looks like dual doors also? Nothing wrong with that.

Crash, that's EXACTLY what I'm thinking about for the next one... actually, I may hit up Publix tomorrow, grab a pineapple, and get a head start on perfecting the coring and juicing method. Gotta have the umbrellas.

We've got the climate for it, but that's a long time to wait for a piece of fruit. The next one's going to be used in a nice rum drink. I'll update this post in 2019.

Tony, no animals got to this one, but I did notice a few small snakes on the patio over the last few weeks. Fortunately, the cat was on duty and took care of that issue. One actually got in the pool and the cat waited in one of the corner edges of the pool and snagged it when it came swimming by and quickly dispatched it.

I'll bring the umbrellas.

That's awesome!! Would love to be able to do that. My pick would be a lemon tree, we go through tons of them in my house. Our climate is only suitable for potatoes and tomatoes. Am trying to grow some peanuts this year, last year we tried watermelon on the front lawn. A week before harvest, somebody stole them all.

my rule of thumb is 3person tent is for one.
unlee you plan on keeping your gear out side.
and even then it will a couple at best.
and when you get up in years you'll need a walkin
cabin tent with room for cots and everything else.
