Crappie are rather small generally. And I don't know of any place that raises them commercially.

I'm pretty sure you will. There's a little thing known as Nissan Motor Manufacturing USA just down the road. There's a few Japanese folks around.

Now, I love sausage gravy and biscuits, and I love chocolate. I love honey on my biscuits too, and real butter, not that fake spread. How much better can ya get than chocolate and biscuits! Whooohoo!

Crappie will be on the list too, to try out. I've had frogs legs in Quebec, couldn't stand them, tasted like meatie swamp mud. YUK! Maybe they're better made in the south, than the French Quebecois' makes them, but we'll see.

I've got a new job, so won't be on much, but will try to pop in now and then to see how things are going, plus will let all know when we're coming down. I've already requested the last week of November off from the job, so that's all set! I told them that we're looking to buy land for a vacation and retirement home for our 'later years'. Just in case I can't transfer to a local office.

blessings - there's storm warnings out right now locally, so I'm going to log offline.

I rapidly learned that you need a basement or tornado shelter. I wonder if there are any websites that explain how to make one?

I'm glad you are okay!

I like the fried cucumber, squash, asparagus. As well as Fried Green Tomato's.
On native plants, can't beat american persimmons, paw paw's, the best if it is ripe.

I'm sure there's gotta be a website out there, for a DIY storm shelter instructions. Heck, if there's online instructions for nuclear bombs (must be some of them OR people , there's gotta be instructions for a storm shelter!

Beautiful BEAUTIFUL day out today! The breeze was a bit cool, but just seeing the clear blue skies and sunshine, just brightened my day! I'm enjoying my new job, GREAT Company! They've offices in Chattanooga, Knoxville and Brentwood, altho, the closest one that fits my job would be in Alpharetta GA - too much of a commute from TN! LOL! They just transferred an entire unit to Alpharetta GA from my office, with none taking the relocation offered. I would've snatched it up. Anyway, my boss was telling me this, and I asked if there was any danger of our unit being relocated? She said there's no certainties, but it's doubtful. I told her that if our unit gets relocated, I'm hoping that it gets relocated to TN! I told her that we're coming down in November to look for vacation and eventual retirement property. Which is the truth. Just that vacation property will be year round vacation, as well as our plans to turn it into THE family vacation spot so family will come down to visit. If I need to work when we move down, then we may need to live close enough to a city, like Brentwood or Chattanooga, within a 30 - 35 mile commute range. I work in the insurance field, and have heard about Nashville being a huge insurance mecca. But, our Precert Dept moved to GA - so, that leaves other insurance companies hopefully that will hire me.

Summertime, when everyone is getting rid of their overloaded gardens filled with zucchini, putting bags full of tomatoes and zucchini on your desk, your porch, in your car or truck without you asking - I make fried zucchini, and fried green tomatoes. Along with zucchini bread, zucchini lasagna, zucchini pie, pickled zucchini - starting to sound like Forrest Gump.... anyway, I LOVE fresh veggies. And I cannot wait for that first fresh tomato! When we come down, I'll have to get some of those special tomatoes - I can't remember what they're called - Spiegel?? Anyway, I'll get some and see what the difference is.

This post is turning into an essay, so I'll quit ------ for now!~

blessings, Shen
