A lightning strike and its ultimate consequence and lunch with Ludacris

You may recall last August when I posted a blog regarding a very tall white pine at my farm that suffered a lightning strike. At that time, it was decided to keep the tree standing and see how it might survive. Well, the answer came the other day when the pine snapped apart during heavy winds. It seems that the lightning had, indeed, weakened the tree substantially and I am sad to see it go.

This is the grove of stately white pines.

Here I am having Lunch yesterday with Ludacris (Chris Bridges).  We had a nice salad, paella, and chocolate cake for dessert.  He is a nice young man and very, very busy.  He is extremely excited about his new flick and new album.  Ludacris also really liked the chocolate cake!
