Now i'm confused

Which is a normal state of mind here.  The local coop had a horse and pony show today....had a couple of well known people

there.  The first was a well known market anyl.  could not make it so did it via phone.  The presentation was not a total gloom

and doom.....the key is, that we are selling product.......and there is disappearance.  Also, looking at most grains, in a

world componet, there is a "grain deficet" and has been growing over the past several years....in addition, the SE asia economy

is growing, and about a 7%.......and most growth in the markets are in developing countries, and their appitites are starting

to grow.  Also, the new leadership in china is "educated".....has a Ph. D. in economics.  What they wish to do is raise

their own hogs, and import WHOLE beans........and while their economy is not really growing, the number of mouths are.

they are learning that they must become more "worldly"......and they like the western pallete.....such as breads and

pasta...so there will a growing demand for wheat there.

Also looking ahead, they will be wanting more corn....if they would open to the way they want to get at levels.......they

would need to import from us, the equalivant of what we use for ETOH....(that also includes SE asia).....put those

usuage number into the formula.

Also, of interest, the prefered fuel in SE asia is renewable/biofuels.

 

Thought is, yes funds will get out and everyone just stands around, and someone makes a few wispers, and

off we go, in the opposite direction.........who cares what the S&D says (evidence that the real data not all that

important, but rather the "game" of the market).

 

speaking from a world wide prospective.......yes we have some extra grain........but we will use it all, at a modes time

frame.......

 

then the local coop people did a presentation, and explained it all to us (this is where your supposed to laugh)....the thing

that stuck out at me, was a chart from FC stone......and another sheet, showing supplies/usage in wheat is 60.2% for HRWW

(i have a real problem wiith those set of numbers, for that type/grade of wheat,.....their numbers didn't show we had

low production for several years)

 

Then we had a climate person talk....interesting......but i get confused with el nino and la nina.......but i think i've figured it out,

in only a way that only I could figure it out....as confirmed by several people who i told of my revolation.....

It seems that in these parts, if we have a el nino year, we have plenty or enough rain.......so.....after thinking about it for

a while.....i came up with a way to remember......el nino is suppose to be boy or male child.  Well every family physican

or peds doctor learns very very early in their professional life, if you ever have to check out a little boy, you stand to

the side of the table, and you leave the child lying on the table........otherwise, there could be a giser all over your

nice, clean, clinic coat.......so i now am able to remember......"male chilld"......means "water".

 

so.......if a few weeks all the data will be in, and we will have a good idea of what we will have for "projected" weather

so we could plan accordingly (cropping and marketing)

 

oh, the dinner was good......and oh by the way, our little table actually did have a couple of goat people there, and

sounds like they are going for a little bit better than $200  a head......but......none of them had their own billy goat,

they always used "the neighbors".......

 

by gumby, i think i've done figured out a new side business.......a billy goat rental business !!!!!

 

go get the stock racks out of the weeds, and put in the pickup, and go get me a few billy goats......i'd have to get

me some business cards, also some grafics for the pickup, and maybe t-shirts, and caps.......maybe use

the phrase "I've got your goat"......or "did someone get your goat"......heck.....do some reading in my electronic

books, and hook up an audio chip, with a billy goat sound, wire it up to the horn on the pickup, when i hit the

horn......it would go bahhhhhh.......hey i could hit the parades in the area towns, have the pickup with

the fancy grafics, and have a few goats in the backend of the pu......honk the horn once in a while......and

like all good parade entry's.....i would have to throw out candy.....i could use those little wrapped root beer kegs,

or better yet, if brocks candy has choc covered peanuts or rasins, in little packages.......or i guess there is always

the old standard....tootie rollss...........

 

 

oh well.......medication time..........i'm a little bit late tonight

opps............i didn't get the computer shut off fast enough......I was "edited".......i was informed that, first, she was

not going to ride in the "billy goat mobile".

 

second, she said i better be carefull what I put on the side of the pickup.......i said put on the side "need a billy goat call xxx-xxxx".

she said if i went to a bigger town, and they read my sign, and saw me driving......i might get in trouble with the law........

she said that was illegal, except in las vegas !!!.

"If you will be my nanny goat I will tell you anecdotes" Smiley LOLHeart
