This is my street.  The Memorial Day parade ended in the cemetery right across the street from our house.

Today we went on the maple farm tour put on by our local high school and their FFA.  I think the kids do a really a good job.  They have a modern syrup production facility, but also have a demonstration cauldron.  Did you know that they used to hang pork fat over the syrup?  The fat dripped into the syrup and kept the foam down.
