    My question is who cares, those palms are trashy and messy. 20 years ago every grower in South Florida had a field of them because they grow like weeds and they could turn them into money in a short amount of time. Now, no one grows them. No bug or blight down here that I know of, just chain saws taking them out!!

    Brian, that looks like a good one. I had to laugh at trying to make a margarita in a cement mixer, that is not only funny but a very accurate depiction of what is going on. However, for what ever reason, the old bandit is a disc chipper and it just eats them up. Weird. The old one does have a much smaller intake and the rollers are not near as wide. John of course decides what to buy, and we have had a drum chipper in the past. Not sure why he is bent on the disc, but he is.

    so, here is the scoop, they are building us a new one. I guess you could buy this one if you don't chip palm fronds. We have had it since January and only put 400 Hours on it. Darn shame. Thing just did not chip palm fronds like Bandit and John thought it would. Bandit is a great machine but this one does not do what we need it to do and that is chip palm fronds. For the most part, this chipper has sat in the yard, all during the hurricane Irma clean up, it sat. Currently, we are using our old Bandit, and I mean old. 2006 with a million hours on it. Cranks up everyday and goobles up the fronds. So, we will either turn this one in on the new one or I guess we could sell it. It belongs in Michigan or somewhere up north where it can gooble hardwoods :)

    Poisonwood is just terrible if you are allergic. I mean terrible. There is something called Zanfel, about $50.00 a tube, that helps. Most people get a steroid shot. Although the eye went through Cudjoe key, I have heard that really Big Pine suffered the worst. Thank your friends from the bottom of all of our hearts. So much destruction, a helping hand is so appreciated. God bless them.

    It is such a dust bowl here, no foliage to help collect dust. We are getting little bits of rain to knock it down but it sure is dusty. Pretty petty complaint eh? We are going to be busy for a long time. What a mess.What a mess.

    Yep, and that is from one end of the state to the other and across the state!! Holy smokes, what a mess. The red cross left Marathon today, now stationing in Big Pine Key. All but two neighborhoods in Marathon have drinkable water and power. That is huge. HUGE. The sewer working is even HUGER! lol. We get though it, just takes time. We are working 6 days, tree crew will be in Key West for a month at least. Only one piece of equipment is giving us a fit, the back hoe of things. Water went in through the exaust and some other problems I can't explain because I know nothing about back hoes other than they are working on it cause we need it!

    So, the plane is a c-116, not the president lol. I think that was the number of the plane, one of the largest carrier planes. Headed into the office, no power there, but the men were allowed back yesterday and will be in to formulate our plan.

    Burn, so sorry I used the STFU phase after you posted, I know you meant well and things will be built stronger when they are rebuilt. Perhaps some day you and Mel can join us on our deck and have a glass of iced tea to discuss how the keys could be better. Brian, work safe my friend. Just taking a short break here, it will be a long road of recovery for theses island and I am grateful to be a part of it. So grateful to be a part of it. I, for the first time in my life, am seeing our tax dollars at work that amazes, I mean amazes me. This may be stupid, but can anyone tell me if the President landed in Marathon? If so, we watched the plane take off from our porch last night. I know Air force one landed at that airport when the senior Bush was President, so I know it can land there. Anyway, the plane that took off was HUGE for these parts! At first we thought it was another C130 but we think this was a much, much bigger plane. It left after dark which was odd as well, most C130'sthat we have observed quit coming at dusk. Pretty stupid, but would just like to know. I have not left my property to ask around town, just though someone here might have heard. Glad to be a part of this forum as well, thanks so much for the prayers and well wishes. Butch, your mama would be so proud. Thanks so much for putting this up for us to share.

    Greg Scott, our Arborist, is alive and well. Had some water roll through his house, but he is well. Holy smokes, we got home Thursday, spent Friday making sure the trucks started and got them back to the yard. We had them staged at different high spots around the island. Today took a tree off our mechanics mother's house, tarped the roof at the office, picked up 8 free cases of that budwiser water and believe it or not, got to our home to find out WE HAVE POWER at our home. The boat was on the lift, had not moved an inch. The fabric on the t top is gone but all well otherwise. You would not believe the number of police officers and Armed Forces that are in the Keys, c-130's landing at the air port behind my house, black hawks and another huge type of helicopter bringing in supplies. Red Cross has stations set uo around our little island and I am sure in the lower keys. One great thing, the source that said so many had died was WRONG. Thank God. This storm hit the ocean side of Marathon bad, the last Hurricane, Wilma, hit the bay side bad. The people are coming back in, the lower keys open at 7 am tomorrow. I have not left Marathon, so have not seen the real destruction in the lower keys, but on the way down until Marathon all I could say was wow. and wow, wow. Our grocery store is open in Marathon, they picked our trash up this morning, and I swear, I just heard the mosquito truck going by. Things will be even better tomorrow.

    Hi Elena, I just did a sketch for Gary Gasoline for a garden renovation and I spec'd in a few daylillies, are you shipping them currently? If so, can you have a look and give me a price to ship them to him? He has done me some favours lately and I want to give him a little something. Also, can I pay you via Paypal?
  2. OOPS! Any email sent to me through this page is orbiting in cyberspace at this moment.

    It's now current.
