speaking, produce

i have several speaking engagements planned over the
next two months on alzhiemers disease

today i will be talking at the senior center where i deliver
meals on wheels from each week

the format today is one i like the best
instead of me giving a talk for 45 minutes then questions
i simply do a short few minutes introductory talk
then let the audience ask me questions on alzheimers disease
letting them decide which direction the presentation will go

these folks will all be elderly and usually they have a lot of
good questions to ask

i usually have a page of items that i can talk about
things i think are important to know
what work up needs to be done
what you can do to slow things down
where to get into a research study
do you need an evaluation
what research is going on now
what forms need to be done before you get incapacitated

there always seem not enough time to answer all their questions

i sure enjoy doing these q and as


these are my garlic
all grown organically
planted in november
there are 67 of them there
@$2.50 per bulb for organic garlic
that makes $167.50 for the garlic i raised this year
plus i gave several away to my rainwater brother

i will let these guys lay there for 2 weeks to dry up some
then i will braid them like a pig tail
and hang them from the roof of my bbq grill for awhile
then move them inside
we usually have enough garlic to last until mid to late winter

then here is the first of my new potatoes organic of course
these were planted in late january
my potatoes my garlic and my onions it seems are having to be
harvested much earlier this year

these new potatoes were cooked by my wife she
covered with crushed pepper and butter
yes i use butter sometimes and its ok to do that
use butter
eaten with meat loaf
made for a great sunday evening meal

next will be my onions
they are getting bigger and bigger
i should have some big hand sized bulbs to eat this year
when the stalks start to fall over
thats when i pick them

then my tomatoes are starting to produce a lot of  small
hoping my wife she doesnt find them as she always seems
to pick them green for
fried green tomatoes

i get so mad when she does that
you know you want to taste that first ripe tomato
of the year as soon as you can
right off the vine

if you are a tomato grower then you know what i mean
i do eat those fried green tomatoes anyway
