Brian, here are all the pics I took at the apple fest.  I think you can download what you want.  Let me know if you want a higher res version.  Bruce

I don't think so but I was too distracted by picture taking!  This apple fest was on the smaller side.  It was held inside a greenhouse and included several other local restaurants and a charity or two.  There was someone selling apple pies I recall. 
One of the apples on the table was identified as a Greenling, and described as a traditional English variety.  No offense, but I found it rather tart, and I don't like sweet apples. The MacIntosh or Macoun are the "caviar" of apples as far as I am concerned.

Fall Spider.  He's a bit fuzzy but he popped up while I was visiting a local fall apple fest.

Several weeks ago we rented two kayaks from Three Belles and went out into the Niantic River. It was a wonderful trip and I'm looking forward to doing it again when the fall foliage arrives. The kayak rentals were reasonably priced and though we got back about 30 min late it wasn't a problem. They also showed us a paddle kayak which my wife will probably try next time. I've recommended this place to several of my friends. Do it.

There are so many things we still know so little about, and diet is apparently one of them.  I mean we can't explain how as we are getting heavier and heavier as we modernize.  There are so many diets, like religions.  Although with the diets we seem to figure out pretty quickly that they don't work.  Or we just give up and become dietetic atheists.  Religions take longer to figure out.
I wish this group success.  It seems even w/o this group there are many researches, and drug companies, looking at the fundamentals of the problem.  If NuSi can bring something special to the problem solving, great.

Funny!  And the guy looks a little sweaty.  Wonder if this will start a trend, bench pressing the president.

Bin, this story is Haiti, not Samoa.  I didn't realize elephantiasis was so close to the US and out here on the east coast.

+Joanne Mochizuki  From the story they are trying a mass treatment of the island as we had done (or laid the groundwork for) in Samoa, many years ago.  But since Samoa was left off the list of clean countries, I guess it is still there.  I will discuss with Kimua-san.

A great place to buy a variety of plants, indoors and outdoors, including some native plants. I bought a beautiful Green Threadleaf Japanese Maple there and it is doing very well going into the fall. I also love taking pictures in the greenhouse which is quite modern in design.
Today they had a fall apple fest. Wish I could post some pictures.

I don't think I ever intentionally photographed a gray squirrel before but after a short discussion about invasive species I decided to give it a shot.

This is on my "to read" list.  But the answer unbiased answer can only be that the republicans tried to kill Obama's agenda from day 1.  McConnell said more than once the republican goal was to prevent Obama's reelection.

Good service from a local team

Logee's is supposedly the oldest continuously operated greenhouse in the US. I've spent hours wandering down the narrow isles, over dirt floors and through the jungle of greenery. Many of the most impressive plants long ago escaped from their pots to become part of the greenhouse ecosystem, making the place feel more like a conservatory than a commercial greenhouse. But I wouldn't go there just to buy a pansy: their plant stock is uniquely exotic, beautiful, and bizarre. It is a first rate botanical delight and it is hard to leave without some new photosynthetic treasure. Just writing this has got me all excited again!

I brought my SUV there and they diagnosed an unusual, expensive (over $1500) problem and suggested I go for a second opinion. I consider that very honest. They suggested I take it to the Toyota dealer. When I explained the situation to the dealer, they said they had never heard of the problem. The next day they called me and said the problem was exactly what C&S had diagnosed. I think C&S was great for recommending a second opinion, and for finding the actual problem.
