Hey, there is a blog on the Whole Foods web site up today about organic peanutbutter. It also has a picture of a real hunk of a guy. The really good looking one on the right. That one is My Honey. The other two are sons. They are poseing in front of a big pile of peanuts that have been dug up and set to dry in the West Texas sun. The peanuts are about to be thrashed by the combine that is behind them to separate the peanuts in the shells from the vine trash. Then the peanuts still have to be sent to the peanut plant and dried some more, shelled, roasted, salted, ground up, or whatever they need before they are really ready to eat.
Yes, it is almost here – the 2010 Lubbock Youth Symphony Orchestra concert featuring Griff Kimball on the marimba as a guest soloist!
There will be six Bingham children playing, two Binghams pushing around chairs and children to get them all in place, one Bingham momma taking picture throughout the concert, and one Poppa Bingham with his buttons popping off with pride.
Here is the link to the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra Site with more information of the LYSO concert.
Of course the big people (Lubbock Symphony Orchestra) are having a concert this Friday and Saturday nights that you might be interested in also. Corey Cerovsek will be playing violin as a guest artist. I got to hear him play a little this afternoon and he is fabulous. I can’t wait to hear the concert myself.
I am about to put up a post about a wine made by Landon Winerythat they made with our Texas grapes, but between start and finish of that note, we got to visit Landon Winery in the historic downtown of McKinney, Texas. They also have a new location in historic downtown Greenville, Texas. If you go to their web site, there is a cool picture looking down from above on their winery. Here is the picture I took. Notice the line of people crossing the crosswalk to go to their winery. That’s just “us.” We had quite a few in our group that day.
