October 5, 2009 - Monday

It is much better to sit tight ---- than to drive that way.
Recorded rainfall amounts around the area last week varied
from .75, in my gage, to well over an inch in others. Several area
growers were able to resume sugarbeet harvest Sunday and it sounds like
many more will be able to resume beet harvest today. Most bean
growers that I talked to say they will need several days of sunshine
before the bean harvest can resume.

L O C A L news & stuff,.. mostly stuff.
In case you haven't noticed. The exterior walls of Granny's
restaurant is being repainted. It' not really a red color, nor is it a
maroon color, so, until I hear different I'll call it Mogan David wine
It is my understanding that the administrative costs to run
medicare is a mere 3 percent. If that is true, I suspect that's a
relatively low cost of administration for any major business. On
the other hand, if it is based on the total cost of medicare, which I
suspect it is. Then it follows that the 3 percent is also spread over
the 10's of millions (and I suspect it's much greater) of dollars
Medicare pays out each year for illegitimate goods and services.
Or so it seems to me.
Anyone that has ever purchased a box of popcorn while
attending a movie at the Strand Theatre will tell you. "There just isn't
any better popcorn anywhere in the world." Unfortunately, a few
days ago, the popcorn popper at the Stand Theatre overheated and filled
the theatre with smoke. Those of you that have ever experienced serious
property damage. Insurance just never seems to cover all of the cost
involved. Somehow, someway, a myriad of small, normally insignificant
things pop up (no pun intended) and the cost of resuming normal business
suddenly begins to escalate. With that thought in mind, received the
following e-mail. >>>>> Hi Gary - I was wondering if
you could post this! :):
Our Local theatre underwent some unfortunate Smoke Damage when
the popcorn machine decided to go on strike. This is our only theatre
and a landmark in Grafton.
We want to help Tommy and Tammy get the strand back to normal and
perhaps even better than before!

the chili feed appreciated!! :)

It seems like everyone has a solution for saving the world
these days. When I received the following e-mail, I pondered the idea of
sharing it's message. Then, suddenly I realized I too am part of the 40
million. So,..... here's hoping the powers that be will implement the
idea posthaste.

This is from an article in the St. Petersburg, FL. Times Newspaper
on Sunday.
The Business Section asked readers for ideas on "How Would You Fix the
Dear Mr. President:
Please find below my suggestion for fixing America 's economy. Instead
of giving billions of dollars to companies that will squander the money
on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan. You
can call it the Patriotic Retirement Plan: There are about 40 million
people over 50 in the work force. Pay them $1 million apiece severance
for early retirement with the following stipulations:
1) They MUST retire. Forty million job openings - Unemployment fixed.
2) They MUST buy a new American CAR. Forty million cars ordered - Auto
Industry fixed.
3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage - Housing
Crisis fixed.
It can't get any easier than that!
(Maybe we should add that everyone would have to purchase one
ticket to the Strand Theater - Giving us the grandest Strand Theater
every) If more money is needed, have all members of Congress and their
constituents pay their taxes...
If you think this would work, please forward to everyone you know. If
not, please disregard..... Then shoot yourself!!!! 1 job opening.
"Life is to short for long answers"

Write if you can, call if you can't, and, tell your loved ones they
are,..... before it's too late.
