What’s up with that green screen? Who’s talking about what?

What’s up with that green screen? Who’s talking about what?

One of the photos I took while I was in California was in a TV studio. I have to admit it stood out quite a bit in the set of photos I asked people to prioritize blog content. And that led Lakeshia Brown (check out her blog Uncommon Chick) to ask, what was up and who was speaking. Here is the photo Keshia asked about: I am not sure how familiar everyone is with the way a green screen works. I…

Look What I Found Growing On Hawaii’s Big Island! Yep! COTTON! :)

Look What I Found Growing On Hawaii’s Big Island! Yep! COTTON! :)

I never expected to see a cotton plant in the wild on Hawaii’s Big Island. And my friend Marsha actually saw it first. We thought it was a mirage for a while but we really did see a cotton plant on Hawaii’s Big Island! I was so excited that I couldn’t take photos quick enough! And of course, I had to ask Marsha to take a photo of me with the cotton plant too! And the photo of a cotton…

A Change Is Gonna Come

Changing jobs and/or cities. How to decide and what decision I have made. Life is good and I love the industry I work in. Really good!

Rice Ready for Harvest, Lodging Becoming an Issue Though

Rice Ready for Harvest, Lodging Becoming an Issue Though

Today I drove through the Mississippi Delta through occasional showers and heavy rain at times. There were quite a few fields harvested…. Corn was long gone, sorghum and some soybeans and rice were cut. Even while driving at highway speeds I could see negative impacts of this untimely rain. So when I got to an area where the rain had stopped, I pulled off the highway to snap a few photos of rice fields. Following are a couple of shots…

Mediterranean Vacation Included Farm Visits

Mediterranean Vacation Included Farm Visits

I thought I may pull up some things from international agriculture experiences I’ve had. It’s a bit of a change of pace so I guess we’ll see whether folks like this one before I do a bunch more. One of my passions is travel and another is agriculture, cotton in particular, so it should be no surprise to find out that when I took a vacation to Turkey, a country that is famous for both the crop and textiles, that…

Watching World Cup Soccer and Thinking Cotton!

Watching World Cup Soccer and Thinking Cotton!

Lovin’ the start of the FIFA World Cup! The tourney may not be an obvious fit for an ag blog. But then again, this is an ag blog for fun, I don’t to follow anyone else’s rules. However, it is really easy for me to connect soccer and agriculture because for me, they are inherently tied for me. Granted I knew about soccer and really appreciated the sport before I knew much about agriculture. I can still remember doing a…
