I'm in Sarasota this week doing some field work and unfortunately I don't think I'll be back in time to make it to this meeting. Keep me posted on what is decided, and how I may be able to help.

Food for thought... Does anyone know (or how to exactly determine) if it would be feasible to make ethanol or other biofuels out of air potato vines and tubers? The production of those things is absolutely phenomenol, and a friend of mine wondered if "anyone at UF" was working on such a thing.

Take care,
