The older I get and the more driving I do the more I hate driving. Wouldn't it be great if we could just blink ourselves to our destination. Not only do I not like it when people do not follow the rules at toll booths but I have come to the conclusion there are people out there that come up behind you on the interstate get into your blind spot and sit there on purpose. It's not like the interstate was full today in fact it was pretty empty (Iowa is really flat) and riding my right back quarter panel where I can't see for umpteen miles is just plain rude. It's like my cruise control is on and when I approach another vehicle I would like to pass them instead of braking so not to cause an accident with guy in my blind spot. What's nice about the little Saab is that it goes from 80 mph to 120 mph in a matter of seconds. There was at least two occasions today that I had to use the high speed getaway from rude driver and leave them about a mile behind. The only problem with this tactic is that once I get back to my comfortable cruise control driving speed Mr. Rude finds his way back to my blind spot. Sometimes I have to adjust my comfortable cruise control driving speed plus or minus a couple of mph's and I don't have this problem. But there are those out there that know that I am changing my speed and adjust there's accordingly to stay on my back right quarter panel. I feel better now. Thanks.
While I was in Kansas celebrating Christmas with family and friends (Merry Christmas everyone) I was looking at some of the pictures from Kenya on the first orchard planted in July and behold I noticed that there was a fairly large passion fruit on one of the vines. I know I have been waiting patiently for fruit to show up on the vines and should not complain but it's still a little too early to be fruiting. The process is that the flowers and suckers are to be pruned on the way up to the wire. Once it is on the wire then it is allowed to spread out, come back down to the ground, flower, and produce fruit. Anyway the vines look like they are healthy and starting to grow more quickly now that they are at the wire. This is great news indeed. I am so excited and now its even harder to wait for a harvest.

Well I hope you all had a very wonderful Christmas and will have a prosperous New Year.
Take care and God bless
