JULY 6 2017
 CORN----KNEE HIGH BY THE 4th  OF JULY-- PORTENDS A BUMPER CROP OF CORN--- AND THE FARM DOWN THE ROAD IS DEFINITELY  "THERE".   IT IS A HUGE OPERATION  BY NEW ENGLAND STANDARDS... NOT ONLY DOES IT AFFECT OUR DIET INTHE FALL WITH ENTIRE MEALS OF CORN ON THE COB....
BUT IT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR IPSWICH TO PASS SOME LAW ABOUT  "PEOPLE MOVING TO IPSWICH HAVE TO REALIZE FARMING TAKES PLACE  AT ALL HOURS,  ANY DAY, CREATING NOISE, DUST,  SMELLS ,  AND SLOW MOVING TRAFFIC.   TO  LIVE HERE YOU MUST EXPECT IT"
WHEN IT WAS PASSED, THE LAWYERS PROBABLY  HAD IN MIND  "CORN" -- BUT THEY NEVER SPECIFIED..  I HAVE BEEN A MEMBER OF THE FARM BUREAU LONG BEFORE I STARTED SDP.  

THE FARM BUREAU  NOW TIES INTO OUR LIFE WITHTHE BUILDING INSPECTOR...---MAIN ARGUEMENT IN THE STATE HOUSE NOW  IS TO GET RID OF -- "ANY BUILDING THAT IS NOT A HOUSE, IS A COMMERCIAL BUILDING."   AND MAKE SOME PROVISION FOR OAGRICULTURLA BUILDINGS..... WHICH IS WHAT CAUSED US TO HAVE TO SPEND  EXTRA MONEY ON  CAST IRON $11000 FLOOR DRAIN INSTEAD  OF  $10 OF PVC PIPE  ALONG WITH  "INSULATED CONCRETE BLOCKS "   AND A BUNCH OF EXPENSES HARD TO JUSTIFY IN A DOG HOUSE...  --   THAT  EXTRA ^&*()_*&^% EXPENSE WAS THE EQUIVALENT OF 2 TRAINED  DOGS. 
WE MAY HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO THE SQUEEKY HINDGE THAT IS PROMOTING THAT BILL.
****
 THE OTHER INTERNATIONAL CONNECTION TO OUR LOCAL CORN FARM....- IS THAT .. ( I HAVE HEARD) TO WORK THESE FIELDS THE OWNER FLYS IN   A PLANEFUL OF WORKERS FROM XXXXXXX-- AND LETS THEM LIVE IN A DORMATORY SITUATION WHILE THEY WORK THE FIELDS.  THEY GO  HOME IN THE FALL...  BEEN DOING THAT FOR YEARS,   IPSWICH DOES HAVE AN UNEMPLOYED POPULATION-- BUT IF MY CORN  WAS DEPENDENT ON THESE LOCALS...TO DO THAT WORK, I FEAR I WOULD GO HUNGREY.. THAT BENDING IN THE HOT SUN ....IS WORK... AND I %100 RESPECT  ANYONE TO DO IT FOR ME.  I JUST HOPE CONGRESS DOES NOT GET IN THE WAY OF MY ADDITICTION TO FRESH CORN ON THE COB.  
I AM TOLD ( ALSO) THAT THE IPSWICH GOVERNMENT HAS HAD A FEW WORDS ABOUT  THE LIVING CONDITIONS OF THE DORMATORY.....   I THINK THAT FARM LACKS THE MILITARY  PRESICION OF KEEPING  A BUNCH OF  HARD WORKING MEN ORGANIZED WHILE  LIVING IN CLOSE QUARTERS. 
HOWEVER-- THE CORN COMETH.... ON SCHEDULE--- KNEE HIGH... JULY 6TH.
****
  ALSO BECAUSE  OF THAT FARM AND IT'S CORN.------.OUR DRYERS HAVE HAD THIER LINT FILTERS CLEANED... ----.-   DOG FEST-- I BOUGHT A BUSHELL OF CORN AND   PREPARED  A WOOD FIRE UNDER A HUGE  HANGING POT OF WATER ---
RUSHING ABOUT--- AS I PASSED THAT POT,  THERE WERE 2 CP's STANDING NEARBY SO I QUICKLY ASKED TEHM TO LIGHT  THE  FIRE.  IN UNISON, THEY BOTH PULLED OUT THEIR CELL PHONES TO ASK HOW TO START A FIRE...

AS I WAS MAKING COMMENTS ABOUT THAT, STEVE#3  WENT BY AND SAID " TO LIGHT A FIRE , I TAKE THE EMPTY TUBE FROMT HE TOILET PAPER AND STUFF IT WITH DRYER LINT"  I LOST TRACK OF THE FIRE LIGHTING  BUT LATER FOUND OUT THEY HAD CLEANED ALL THE DRYERS ON THE PROPGETY AND LIT THE FIRE WITH THAT ... NOT ONLY THAT... BUT THEY PASSED THE WORD TO  OTHER CP's  WHO NOW SEND US TOILET PAPER TUBES STUFFRED WITH DRYER LINT--- SOME FROM OTHER COUNTRIES EVEN !!  THEY DO WORK... 
ALL BECAUS EOF THE CORN...
.****
ANOTHER CORN  FAARM STORY...  A FRIEND WHO HAS A BUNCH OF LAND...  ALLOWS THAT FARM TO PLANT SOME FIELDS WITH  CORN... WITH THE PROVISION THAT WHEN THEY CUT IT, THEY LEAVE 10  ROWS IN THE MIDDLE SO HUNTERS CAN HIDE  AND SHOOT GEESE-- WITH THE  NUMBER  OF GEESE WE HAVE AROUND HERE SPREADING GIARDIA  IN THE WATERWAYS OF NEW ENGLAND....., THIER AIM CAN NOT BE TOO GOOD... HOWEVER  THOE 10 ROWS ARE LOADED WITH CORN WHICH EVENTUALLY WILL GET PLOWED UNDER... SO SHE TOLD US TO GO PICK AS MUCH AS WE WANTED....  THAT IS WHY MY TOYOTA WAS FILLED TO THE CEILING --- THREE T IMES-- WITH THE BEST CORN  EVER--- AND IS WHY GRACE FROZE SO MUCH WE STILL HAVE SOME IN THE FREEZER.
***
TIME TO DRINK THE COFFEE AND GET READY FOR THE 20 PEOPLE COMING HERE WITH HAMMERS-- FIRST THING THEY CAN DO IS TO  GET TEH POLES OVER TO WHERE I HAVE DUG THE HOLES... I AM PRETTY SURE I HAVE 2  SIDES LINED UP RIGHT-- THAT 3-4-5 TRIANGLE TO DEFINE A RIGHT ANGLE NEVER FAILS  ONLY IF YOU MEASURE VERY CAREFULLY... 
EVEN WITH OUT AT COMPUTER IF YOU ENTER GARBAGE INTO A CALCULATION , YOU GET GARBAGE OUT.
**************
  I'm so sorry they are complaining about all the hard work you do. Some people have absolutely nothing better to do. I know when I was there I never heard a dog bark at that time. I was up well before 6 I'm a early riser. Unless I'm sick w a flare up. Such a shame. If we can do anything to help please let me know u truly deserve so much more then unnecessary aggravation.

 WHOEVER DESIGNED THIS KABOTA BACK HOE DID NOT EAT MUCH CORN...    IF YOU HAVE CONSUMED CORN YOU CAN NOT CAUSE THE BACK HOE TO SCOOP DIRT  NICELY...BECAUSE  THE LEVERS ARE SET TOO CLOSE TO  THE OPERATOR'S BELLY...  AND IT IS NOT JUST MY OWN GENEROUS EXPANSE... I TRIED LAURA IN THE SEAT... ND IT WAS NOT COMFORTABLE FOR HER EITHER.

SO THERE.
