Take your forklift and set the probox(s) on the tender. Been using a gravity wagon with a 17' auger and a small engine hydraulic unit I built for beans but doing corn in individual bags.
Tired of mixing talc in with a broomstick and got the scales so i can go to more bulk corn too.
This year I'll still be doing it the hard way on most of the corn.
Not me of course but this is basically it

I like the idea of bulk seed if only to cut out all the additional packaging of bagged seed.

Malta's Azure Window destroyed by strong storm:

In that lower "before" shot, those are people walking across that natural bridge before such access to it was closed around 2013.

It had served as the backdrop in many movies and programs including the Dothraki wedding in the first season of "Game of Thrones".

Starbucks announced Monday that its Roastery store in Seattle has begun selling two new specialty drinks made from beans aged in whiskey barrels. Starbucks will be selling bags of those coffee beans as well.

The company said its Starbucks Reserve Whiskey Barrel Aged Sulawesi beans are aged in "freshly emptied" oak barrels from a local distiller in Washington State -- Woodinville Whiskey, Co. (I'd like to be the guy that helps to freshly empty the barrels!)

Starbucks (SBUX) said the beans are "hand-rotated frequently" over a period of several weeks to make sure they all come into contact with the barrel and absorb the flavor of the whiskey.

[snip]

Apparently Starbucks and other companies are fully relying upon people's lack of understanding of what "aging" means. This includes the author of the linked article.

I wonder if the whiskey they picked is as wasteful as their coffee is?

Close-up of Pan from Cassini:

That ridge is believed to be the accretion of ring material on its equator.

Pan is the small (about 130 km across) Saturnian moon inside and whose gravity maintains the Encke Gap of Saturn's A Ring.

Yep, both are in the process of being sued. Unfortunately, the linked article was on a website I didn't feel was acceptable for a variety of reasons.

"How to Clear a Path Through 60 Feet of Snow, Japanese Style":

Image

“I remember when I was in high school there was a lot more snow,” says Tanikawa [Vice President of the Toyama Prefectural Road Public Corporation], who is now 50. “In the morning snow fell and it would fall all day while we were at school. When I came back home there would be 40 to 50 centimeters of snow to clear.”

“My children,” Tanikawa adds, “have not had that experience.”

I was astounded; 40 to 50 centimeters of snow is about 16 to 20 inches, and I wondered if it had ever snowed enough—and more importantly, the snow having outpaced the snowplows—for Tanikawa to have experienced a snow day as a child.

The answer of course, was no.
