Busy Fall

It has been a busy Fall so I have been pretty poor at finding time to update my blog.

On top of everything else that normally happens in the Fall I have been spending a great deal of time on activities of an industry grading committee. I have never worked so hard and accomplished so little in 22 years at the Commission. Perhaps after last week it will begin to move a bit faster.

The concept of using an x-ray machine to grade peanuts is really intriguing. It won't do everything but has the potential to speed up the process on a portion of the grade factors. The current system is pretty labor intense and labor is harder and harder to come by these days, especially seasonable labor.
