VIEW FROM CROOKED TREE VILLAGE

Sometimes I sit down and wonder what will I find to begin the week or for that matter wrapped up the week. I try to think of funny or entertaining topics, but many times I end up with a mental block.

Many times my sources of inspiration just seem to dry up, but I always try to keep up beat about my next post or topic lurking around the corner. If any of you out there feel sympathy for me, perhaps you can send in my next topic.

Since next weekend is the annual Cashew Festival in Crooked Tree Village, and because I’m suffering from sleep deprivation, I thought I’d take an easy way out to show you all the fruits in the village this week. Here’s what you can get to eat and just in time for the festival!!





Big Juicy Cashews
Mangoes
May Plums
Custard Apples

Linda you are doing a great job. Happy Mother's Day to you. Nice pictures of the fruits that are available in the jewel. Those May plums look bigger than the mangoes. Are they May plum on steroids?

Well, as far as topics, certainly the Cacao Fest is coming up. In anticipation perhaps you could profile the local chocolate business whose product is marketed under the Green and Blacks label. Can't remember the name of the family that runs the business right now, but their story is fascinating. You could also profile www.Mayabags.com, also in Punta Gorda, or write about local Mother's Day celebrations. I think Mother's Day is really one of the biggest traditions of the year.

Linda,

Why don't you speak of the wonderful resort community in the Mountain Pine Ridge area of Francis Ford Copola.

I understands it is amongst a beautiful waterfall and pine forest area.

Love,

Joseph

You can do a "remember when" series and ask for feedback from your fans.

Like I would say, "Remember when we used to sift weeble outa flour". I bet you would get some hilarious ones. You can add your spin to it and maybe this would give you a break from trying to figure out topics for a few weeks.
