I blew up one of my other photos. Looks like they're GreenWood farm trees, so they must be poplar. They'll be used for "window and door frames, cabinets, picture frames, veneers, crown moldings, venetian window blinds, wood pallets and door cores" Also, RV interiors. It sounds like originally they planned to export most of the wood, but since then fuel costs have made the shipping super expensive. That was in 2008. No idea what they're doing now... from this article. haha, yep. They might get pennies, though! hey, ROAD DAMAGE! nice try luring Matt out with ice cream talk! That would normally work, but he's just swamped right now. Hectic week. Suffice it to say, he rarely passes up ice cream in any country. No worries, HWD! In fact, I meant to send you a PM about that... I was trying to be funny (not jerky) in my response, too. Thanks for reading and caring enough to ask. Mameshiba are weird and confusing, I know. Here's a giant one in a Japanese department store... I want one, though!
