All snark aside, I do feel bad about California's agricultural issues, and I'm sure we'll feel the pinch at the grocery store soon. It's scary...something something Florida...NO!!!

It's going to get worse.  Our next growing season will be a bust. We're suffering a major drought and the light sprinkles we've received the last few days are merely taunting us.

The California central valley is called the nation's salad bowl.  When prices go through the roof, I'll just have to force myself to eat bacon instead.

I keep saying they need to make a new one with ian mccellen and patrick stuart as dan and eddie's butlers, and they pull something on them. Kinda a moral on how money can make you forget where you came from and old people are devious bastards. A full circle kinda movie.

Which isn't relevant, because they did not buy up the raw product - they bought an intermediary product.

My father owned a lemon ranch, it was the poorest lemon ranch in California I can assure you. He sold it before they found oil on it.

I'm curious, was California always an agricultural Mecca just waiting to be found,our was it essentially terraformed by diverting rivers and lakes?
