Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Wednesday, November 10, 2010


Things are going pretty fast. The aircraft contract has been awarded and most of the seed is mixed and ready to fly. Should get the remainder of the seed tomorrow for testing. Then we will mix the rest Monday if the tests come back good. Heavy clouds today (and now snow) will prevent any flying and I haven't been contacted by the Helicopter Company about where they want to store their materials yet. They know that I have to approve the sites so things will get tense in the next few days when they do contact me.

I am really looking forward to getting things in the air on this project. On Friday of this week I will have been working three weeks on and off on the project. That has got to be a record for getting six seed contracts and an application contract awarded and ready to go.

Just looked out the window and it is snowing---HARD---and that is the last thing I need right now with the contract ready to go forward. I hope we don't get a ton of snow out of this storm.
