    Today the wife uncle next to us started pumping water from his pond into his rice paddies. All rice is stunted for lack of rain. The wife told me that after her dad returns from his FREE senior trip to Rayong, she will be using the water from her project for her rice.

    Pops getting ready for tonights trip.:D:D Just to the left of Pops is the canal. It is unbelievable what he has done with that area. Its about 150m long by upto 20m wide in spots. All brush and garbage have been removed and 1 new diversion dam built and another rebuilt. Remember the water table is about 3m down.
    There is already water backing up behind theses dams all from the water table. This project of the canal will be another source to be shared with the swine flu project.:D:D I shall get some photos.

    I think somebody has been stealing our water from our little pond. All the paddies around it are dried out and brown except one plot that is lush and green.

    It's getting serious about us. Just next to us they have laid 2 inch pvc line about 150 meters and are getting water from our neighbors pond. All ponds around us including our new one our dug down past the water table. SWMBO has not used her water YET for rice but it's just amateur of time.
