Weekly Off-Topic Thread #246

Welcome to Friday!  We got rain the last four days - not enough to make our hay field, i mean yard green but it has to help, a bit.  Today was a just very hard drizzle - my glasses were coated in just seconds.

 

I enjoyed the discussion about the Coke Freestyle machines.  According to the finder, Cheesburger in Paradise has one.  Wonder if the customer does it or the wait staff?  I have yet to use one but most that serve Coca-Cola, have brewed Gold Peak tea (LOVE IT!) and that has gone high tech too as you can select sweetened, diet, unsweeted and so on from one spout.

 

Nice Hocking Hills picture, Uni.  Phil mentioned a State Park in Brown County Ohio.  haven't been there but Indiana's Brown County state park is too cool.  Thousands of trees, birds, deer, many vistas and gorges and the quaint town of Nashville is just outside the park.

Ain't that the truth!  Memorial Park looks really awful!  And worse from high  up off the freeway.

So far this month of July we have had 0.12 inch of rain.  We've been well over 100 deg. everyday for well over a week.  106.5 today and more of same expected the rest of the week.

 

Looks like another miserable tomato year.  We've had only a couple small ones so far and the plants look awful.  I'm watering them regularly but it is just too darn hot.  Farm crops are drying up.....farm animals can't survive the heat so are being sold to market prematurely.  Food prices are going to skyrocket.  Last I looked....corn $8 per bushel.....soybeans $16 per bushel.  In my lifetime I have never seen prices that high.  Some might say the farmers will make out well.....but that doesn't make sense since they won't have any crops to sell to take advantage of the high market price.  A lot of farmers are just cutting their corn and storing it for silage.  We've even had situations where silage and/or compost piles are catching fire from combination of the extremely high temperatures and heat of fermentation resulting in spontaneous combustion.
