I found this by doing a search on the forums for something totally unrelated but stumbled across this site. Cindi originally posted this site but I found it so useful and have spent a ton of time on it so far. I open two web pages one is the list of plant names then open google images so I can search and find what each plant looks like. Great way to kill an afternoon at work. :evil:

Since you do that at work does that mean your employer deserves your honey harvest?   :-D  :-D

Sacalait fillets are a great trade for honey, that's some fine eating.

Hey Keith ain't it something how just a week ago we were freezing on the sidewalk at Mother's! Been in the upper 70's since, every day. Last night was cool for some reason though.

The weather this past week has been awesome. I had drill last weekend. On the last day I was laying out in a field waiting for the joes to finish cleaning so we could catch the bus home. Well all at once someone's snoring woke me up when I looked up there was no one around. Seems I woke myself up sleeping in the sun   :-D


Filets you can't beat sac a lait maybe spec trout but I still lean toward sacs
