    Just started a 10 day vacation tonight, 4 of those days I'll be in New York City...The garden is about done, I yielded about 60 lbs. of green beans and 25 ears of corn along with 40 habanero peppers...I canned 40 quarts of green beans, gave a lot of beans away to neighbors, its been a good growing season for me this year...

    If I recall correctly they used twice as must concrete & steel in the Freedom Tower as code required. I think that has to do with foreknowledge of a future event.

    Trump has 4 buildings in NYC that have his name on them, I've been to 2 of them this week, Trump International Hotel and Tower and Trump Tower... I'm not sure what the other two are officially called lol...The one I had lunch at was the Trump Tower and the Big letters on the side of the Tower, and it sure is a tower, looks golden lol...

    I'll post the images I took of those two towers soon...

    Just getting up and moving around in my hotel right now, my last day in New York, flying home this afternoon...

    I would love to see the US, I have often studied a map and wondered where I would go. Would absolutely love to land on some of you folks front door, with a Bottle of Jack Daniels. Gday I'm Dundee, wheres the party. The look on your faces would be priceless.
