Re: WFM producer ratings

Alyce: I find this ironic because one of the few instances I noticed details on was WFM being less than transparent. Every year in Feb Mar April, we wait with bated (baited?) breath for the string of fresh Asparagus generally leading to our own patch [more]

Re: Best Stock idea for September 2014

Which lawnmowers JD builds Depends on the size and your definition of lawnmower.... The profitability of branding something you can vet well enough but don't make yourself seems relevant. Never have invested directly in JD, so I really don't know [more]

Re: Alyce - how about the ALS Ice Bucket Challen
