Re: So Turdy, Sam?

Any transport efficiency from a pipeline would make a few cents difference at most.

Ethanol is sorta inefficient and dangerous in that way- you have to move it by truck or rail.

Whatever role an abundance of liquidity might have on the current price of oil, it is small compared to grains.

For this demo, inconsequential by comparison.

Speaking of which, this will be a big week for the I’m Not a Bad Marketer But USDA is Lying page.

Price of gas affects everyone. Easy to understand. Pipeline slayer made it very public.

Yes.

I recall in 2014 when the Fed tried tapering a little and the dollar shot up, exploding the commodity bubble.

Everybody here said “go get him, Barry!”

The cost to drive my electric car hasn’t changed a bit.    My motorhome?   I can choose to drive, or not drive it.   It’s paid for, in a nice cool shed for the summer.   Maybe this fall or winter I will venture out again.   And, maybe not.   I’m very comfortable here at home.

Like my building inspector said the last time he was here and looking over my theatre room  - “If this was mine, I’d never leave this room!”

Life well planned….

My strawberries ended up producing 50 quarts.   Far short of my predicted 300 quarts at the start of the season, but better than the 20 I thought we might get.   Peas are essentially done.   My cucumbers have just started flowering, so have the tomatoes after the nearly 3 inches of rain we got Saturday.  It was nice - ALL of it soaked in - corn around here looked like it grew a foot.    Beans now have some life.   But my granddaughter and I are STILL picking berries off the mulberry tree that was just loaded this year.   The fruit has gotten bigger though, with the rain.   And blueberries are just around the corner.   Our grapes are filling out nicely - looks like our best crop there in years.   And we managed to keep all the flowers going, through all the heat and lack of rain.   All beautiful - but the pain of knowing you were unwanted as a child, never goes away.

Word to the wise, it would be a great time to sell the motor home.   Camper lots are thin,  value likely to crater in coming years.  If you're betting on the progs running things, it will just about be illegal to use within 10 years.

karen got rid of an appreciating asset ( farmland) and got depreciating assets ( motorhomes, cash, etc) in return.

she must really love her children.

How about you worry about your own?   My kids will be well taken care of if I die.   Unlike me, who got NOTHING in the way of inheritance.   That’s what happens, when you’re an unwanted child.

I drove through Jenny’s neck of the woods on my way to and from Eau Claire. Some of the crops look tough, but the rain was heavy on Saturday. I sure didn’t want to get anywhere near Twin Cities of Antifa/BLM land.

Hope you used the opportunity to tell them about the law of supply and demand, ie the supply glut during Covid when fewer were traveling, and the now larger demands.
