    dave...
    there's a rice mill just a bit north of Anaheim lumber, same side of the road, in fact, on a clear day, you should be able to see it from Anaheim.

    i think the name is Flores Rice Mill but don't hold me to that. it's before the hiway curves and you should be able to ask most anyone in the area for the rice mill.

    they provide sacks IF they have them but best to take you're own. p25 for a 50kg rice sack but the little woman wiggled the price down to 4 sacks for p80.

    be sure to take ur personal wiggler with you to make the deal...

    Thanks Norm for the information. I always like to have my personal "wiggler" close by.....:wink:

    There are at least four guys here that are interested in visiting you little gardens there. Is there a good day of the week for you. How is the best way to get there vehicle wise?
    I would like to have you walk me through the "non-smelly" fish emulsion and some of the other unique things you do .

    ok, roodog is planning on coming up around 9am, this coming friday morning, could yáll join him on such short notice? is there some way we can plan without cluttering up the forum, maybe email with ''reply to all.''

    keep in mind that we DO have those (insert cuz word here) bunhoks which shouldn't be a problem as long as you stay in the designated ''safe'' areas.

    and our (tropical) garden is a learning/growing process for us and it's summer so things are down a bit but i could do a show and tell on making some of the korean natural farming inputs and our worm farm and rain catchment, etc....

    ''the best way to get there vehicle wise?'' would be a chauffeured vehicle with big soft tires.

    Norm, is this still going to happen tomorrow mornying The forum thrives on posts, so communication on the forum is good for the economic health of the forum, I had not responded previouis about this trip but the silence is deafening here. I have put text messages to Rudy, and not heard back. I lost your phone number again! I do plan to be there tomorrow morning about 9 AM but I do not know if anyone else is coming. See you in the morning.
