Most everything seems to be gloom and doom anymore. Almost everything you hear anymore is not good for a cheerful soul. 

 

So, I thought I would try and start a fun and refreshing topic for us to participate in for a change of pace.

 

What I would like to see us do is this; Tell us something about yourself that we did not know. It can be anything, but hopefully fun, lighthearted, and interesting. 

 

Regards, Mike

I'll bite Mike, I have a growing solar panel on top of my head, seems to be getting bigger every year.  :o  What some folks call a bald spot, the only advantageous thing I have is being 6' 4" tall a lot of folks can't see it if I stay standing up.  :D  :lol:  :P

You have one of those too Larry? Although mine isn’t a solar panel, mine comes from all the gray matter inside pushing the hair follicles out....


An interesting nugget about me, I make a mean Macaroni and Cheese in the oven.

Neighbours started a food truck this year, their hours are pretty limited when it’s out on location, but every time I help them now at their farm they send me home with something delicious!

One of our daughters got married last weekend.  Had an absolutely gorgeous day for it, and everything went perfectly!  She has been blessed with a great husband, and we have been blessed with a wonderful son in law.  I was an emotional mess, and the water level in the pond actually rose from all my tears!  :D

Here is something about me that you didn't know....

 

I have always loved to grow things which I have stated before. But anymore, my favorite thing to grow is Tall Bearded Iris. I have bought many many award winning Iris stock from all over this country and grow and reproduce them here on my farm. I find them just so beautiful and I am fascinated in the hybridization of Iris...creating my own hybrids. I wish I would have started this hobby of mine when I was younger. For some reason I just did not pay much attention to Iris back then. Iris come in every color and color variation under the sun. Some have very large flowers and some have smaller flowers. Some are fragrant some are not. But I enjoy them all. 

 

Regards, Mike

We had a neighbor who was a corn breeder but loves hybridizing Iris. I wish I would have listened to him more as I’m very interested in it now.

Ok, so I’m purty much a straight shooter, folks know where I stand, I let it be known. But....I’ll have to admit this, and it’s really hard to say this.....I haven’t, and won’t, even tell me very best friends. But I’ll tell all of my colleagues here.....Damn it, I just can’t do it. Maybe I’ll work up some more courage later.......sorry

 There's a difference, seems MY hair follicles started growing from their roots. Eg out from my ears, nose, whatever, instead up.  :cool:

One of the current largest Iris breeders in the US was originally from Minnesota, but moved his family and his operation to Oregon about 100 years ago in search of a more moderate and favorable climate. His name was F.X. Schreiner and now his grandchildren operate one of the largest Iris businesses in the world. They cultivate over 150 acres of Iris.

I'll go. As busy as we are with everything, my wife and I are huge video game players. We don't do much TV and aren't usually inside before dark but playing anything from new huge games to frogger and tetris (she always whoops me in tetris even after 11 years of trying to beat her) it's a wonderful way for us to do something engaging together that we can both relax and enjoy while doing. Even single player games we'll watch each other play and help all we can. You really get an appreciation for the amount of cooperation you have with each other, which is huge in a relationship of any kind.

Great idea for a topic

Never thought of them that way - gaming I mean.  Just see teenagers doing it all the time and think negatively about it.  Thanks for giving me a new perspective!

My grandfather used to tell us grandkids that he stuck his head in a rabbit hole and they ate off his hair.  We believed that for the longest time.

Well, my neighbor has a direct descendant of UGA, Georgiana....
They are so damn ugly they’re cute....look like little pigs and they make noises similar to little pigs.
But so sweet and lovable.....I’ve taken her to the vet a couple of times and she is a handful when she gets traction. But I have no ownership in UGA the dog, I do however have plenty of ownership (at least I should own a whole damn wing) in the UGA “experience” :o I sure am glad I gave up my season tickets tho.....can’t afford them things when you have a kid there.
