    Yes yes I know I made spelling errors such as "be" instead of "been" and "Clever" instead of "Cleaver" and even in this sentence grammatical errors as well. Thank you for noticing. I hope your art of being exact never fades. A lost art is hard to regain.

    For many years specialty table grape varieties on a small scale were - an after the main wine grape harvest - interesting thing for me to petal to the local independent grocers . As time progressed it became more and more complicated to accomplish and eventually led to non existance on this small scale. Independants were able to deal directly with local growers easier than today. I now notice the commercial put out by Walmart claiming the "local" fame.

    To prove a point once I jumped through the hoops necessary going through Raley's distributor to untimately watch my speciality variety sit next to another well known on Raley's shelf and outsell in comparison .

    The downtown farmers market has be a good source of local produce. Vine ripened goes a long way.

    Concentrating on wine grape quality was necessary and it's associated diversity as I now have a few table grape varieties just to eat personally and several wine grape varieties to do my mad scientist experiments on to be satisfied with and benefit from it's resulting knowledge.

    Too bad that I no longer deal with the independants. I kind of miss that.
    Selrite, Apple Market ,Centromart, Food King and many others had their customers that seem to look forward to when the variety would be coming in as the grocers indicated to me.

    I had even created a plate garnishment demand at the "Cask and Clever" restaurant in Lodi that was something special of sorts.

    Time moves on though as we all continue to seek that special place that we can feel good about. Sometimes regulation is nothing but what I would call counter productive at a point.

    Hope somewhere you will find it again Mrs. Paden (or Mitchell as I once knew you). I haven't seen your children in ages. Say hi for me.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
