To be insightful means to intuitively grasp things - an "aha!" moment!

About Me

My photo
I am a member of the church of Christ. I have been writing things since I was little. Some have been printed, some posted. I write to teach or encourage; to blow off steam; and for fun! I had my own motorcycle in my 40s; I was a bluegrass music DJ for about 13 years; I've performed some. I am a member of the NRA. In 2003 (age 59), I became high partial legally blind; in 2005, I had to get hearing aids! Franklin Field said: "Poor eyes limit your sight; poor vision limits your deeds". And no kidding, the picture was made April, 2012!

Nature Girl, part 2

An update from August 22 ... Steve (who preaches where I worship) told me this is not corn but is milo. I finally found someone on line, who knows about this stuff. Ms. Bohling works at the Kansas Grain Assoc- iation. I sent some pictures, and she said that milo is in 4 forms: sweet sorghum, grain sorghum, grass sorghum, and broomcorn, and that grass and grain milo is used for silage. It didn't look like what people make brooms out of, and I was pretty sure it isn't sor- ghum cane. But now that the fuzzy yellow pollen-heads have changed into tiny berries, I can see how this kind could be used for cattle-feed. She told me that a lot of grass- and grain-sorghum is used in bird feed. She said that the seeds will turn dark red. I figure this will do that in another week or two. Some of the stalks are about 5 feet tall, and yes, they are definitely cane!
