Hey Wheeler

When you Dust farm how do you increase production. and how much does dust go for. Is it sold by the yard, cu. M, bushel, or pound. If there is a good market for it I can send you some from here when the wind picks up from the North. LOL

We have those on a regular basis up here in Arab land but I usually don't see them with that kind of separation. They slowly build up until visability is like being in a fog. (something I am more familiar with) That's an impressive photo. Maybe if I went up in a plane it would look like that. I am still waiting for the commodeties quote on this from Wheels so I can start shipping and get rich. New company "Dust for Every Occasion".

It tried to sell bags of dirt on one of those TV informercials. You know the ones, "but wait there's more". Well I had a "but wait there's more" too. It was for every bag of dust, I would throw in a Bag of my ready made holes. I got lot's of orders, but every single one of my customers complained the dirt had vanished by the time they recieved it. The holes must have had something to do with it. Damn, foiled again.

Lightbulb Holes ahoy.

Hey wheels , just had another brilliant idea. Holes are dangerous on boats, but out here where they are making holes all over to get that cheap oil out of the ground, I could sell them like hot cakes. Ship me over a bunch and we can get rich. Money is no object here when it comes to putting holes in the ground. They will likely make you a prince or something for your invention. I can ship dust back to you as payment, so you won't have to grow it on your farm. LOL

Wheels carn't go Internationaly."He's making to much nationaly with the hole sales at the moment."Mind you,covering someone elses holes wouldn't be a sin,would it?"There seem to be a lot of "Back paddoks"up this way.Mudnut

I find it quite amusing that Customs wil not allow you to bring anything into NZ with dirt on it. Yet Oz's dirt blow's all over us from the sky.
Did you know we have one of your Orbweb spiders(not sure which one) here in Marlborough now. A few were blown all the way across the Tasman and landed over here. Amasing.

Hmm... Spiders that sail across large expanses of water. Real international drifters those. May as well introduce them to the list, they'll fit right in. (g)
