      Today we are taking 42 bags of olive/leaves mix to the processor to make some olive oil. The family usually uses the first batch harvested for its own consumption. This is the organic batch. The process starts by dumping the bags into collectors to go up the conveyors to a vacuum to extract leaves. As they fall, they are washed and after they water is separated, they go to the grinder. After being ...

      Today I went to the museum and looked at the findings from the Minoans at Knossos and Phaestos. Great tour with all kinds of amazing pieces. They were a head of their time in craftsmanship. They were the leaders in shipping and controlled the seas. There were several palaces on Crete and survived for about 3,000 years, before the volcanic eruption of Santorini whipped out the whole island around 1370 ...
