Excellent news! Interesting how you get rid of the middlemen and supply goes up while prices go down. Thanks Judy.

This sounds like an excellent idea! The time has come for all nations to follow this example.

Greece is in economic quick sand. This potato buying is not going to sustain an economy built on a house of cards. I predicted the Euro will be gone before the end of the year, now I wouldn't be surprised if Greece returned to the drachma in the fall.
