Ok, maybe not Blah Blah Blah, but Birthdays can be interesting. Most of the time. Coming up here in a few days, will be my Birthday. November 7th to be exact, yep I’m a Scorpio.
So, what’s the big deal? Looks like I’ll be out of town for two days. The 6th and the 7th for both days. We’re heading south to apparently learn about and collect some Sugar Cane.
The University of Florida is holding a Seminar on Sugar Cane and we’ve registered. It cost us $15 per person, plus we have to get a motel room. So, it’ll be my Mother and Father, as well as myself. I’m not sure who else we know is going to go.
Apparently they have several different types of Sugar Cane growing. We’re allowed to cut down 15 different stalks of each variety that they have. But, we have to bring our own Sugar Cane Knife. Which we do have one. And our own transportation to get to the field.
Just to be clear, that’s 15 stalks of each variety per person that comes. Which could end up to being a decent amount of Sugar Cane.
What are we going to do with all this Sugar Cane? Grow it of course. Seeing as how the Seminar is meant to teach you all about Sugar Cane, the processes, and the growing aspect of it, it only makes sense to grow it.
We’ve already got a place picked out to grow it. We just have to plow it. “Which is always a fun task.” If you’ve ever plowed a Garden, you know it’s hard work.
My only complaint? Why does this dang Seminar have to be on “My Birthday.” Sigh. Oh well, looks like I’ll at least get to pick where we’re having dinner.
