  2. Gardening Thread 2019

    Maybe one more raised bed ! All table veggies this year not much sense in canning anything with just us two . I have gotten a taste for fresh beets and grape tomatoes in my old age LOL ! Not a garden thing but ... I put 5 Tulip Tree and 1 Apple tree cuttings up in the barn to root about 8 weeks ago . Fingers crossed that the Rooting hormone did its job . Although the shoots that were on them at cutting were green , and still are sooo...

    The catalogs are arriving and our Winter weary brains are turning towards looking out the window, dreaming what we'll do when Spring arrives. What are your garden plans? And as time goes on throughout the year, how's it looking?

  8. Amazon.com Facility In Chemung County

    The issue I see is size. The current Amazon HQ is 13.6 million sq ft. The Empire state building is 2.8 million sq ft. If this is supposed to Amazon HQ 2.0 they required up to 8 million sq ft of space to allow for future expansion. That is .28 sq miles. I cannot think of an area that large and available in Chemung county. The full list of requirements are below. We may fill a few but miss on most of the requirements. Amazon's request for proposals outlined several core requirements, as well as optional preferences. Metropolitan areas with a population of over 1 million Within 30 miles (48 km) of a population center Within 45 minutes of an international airport Proximity to major highways and arterial roads 1–3 miles (2–5 km) Access to mass transit routes Up to 8 million square feet (740,000 m2) of office space for future expansion Optional preferences included airports with direct flights to Seattle, New York City, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C., urban locations, and proximity to major universities.
  9. Working the Bees

    Update , we left the feral hive alone where it was in hopes of trapping them later . They made it all this time but just , I believe , starved out as I poked around in the hive and stick came out dry . Fed my bee’s day before yesterday , or at least refreshed what they weren’t eating . The dug right into the dough mix I made by kneading sugar into the winter patties . It’s time for them to start ramping up brood shortly . If they haven’t I will do a mite treatment with my new Varrox Vaporizer . Best to do this before brood is capped as the Oxalic acid vapor only works on mites in the open , also treating is best done at temps above 40 degrees .

    Oh yeah ... go for it ! A few problems I can possibly see happening , the aforementioned “ feasibility studies “ a misnomer if ever there was one ... off course Jobs are Feasable ! And Jobs ... dirty word for some occupationally entitled locals who would go to great lengths to avoid actually working for that “ earned income credit “ . The labor pool in the area is tainted in as much as people apply for and interview for employment then fail the drug test ! This has been.a problem for years and continues to be a stumbling block for otherwise employable folks . Negativity ... no , just reality ! Another thing to consider is this . Other Companies have come into the area paying the locals less than the average wage at thier other locations , this would be something else to watch for in this case . Again ... confirmed fact not negativity on my part . I again support this idea , I just would like it done without tearing into the County wallet too badly !

    There shouldn't be one thin dime spent on any studies whatsoever since the company has already said "screw it" and will just continue out of existing facilities. It's a nice idea but there are a couple concerns in have. One being the effect on local retailers. Would a hypothetical Amazon distribution center in our backyard mean availability of same day delivery? I don't think even Walmart would be able to compete with that. Secindly, during a job interview, I was told that a surprisingly large percentage of potential employees in this area are unable to pass a simple drug test. The ones that can are being competed for among employers. What, if any, effect would this and the hypothetical influx of new jobs have on the area? A trickle down of employment opportunities and are lack of able or willing bodies to fill it? Again, all hypothetical. Especially since it wasn't just the city of NY that caused Amazon to back out but the state as well. Anyone doubt the unions would still be breathing down their neck whether downstate or here?

    Aquaman was indeed a good movie since it was good it got me to revisit Justice league movie which was also suprisingly good. I will rank them higher than any xmen movie besides logan.

    I say go for it. My only concern is the cost of any feasibility studies. I’d hate to see thousands of dollars spent on a long shot.
