Hi Ante !! I was wondering where all the great photos were going!!
I LUV Black Olives! I always get Lots of them on my sub sandwiches. And I never quit eating till i get the last black olive! Being that fresh, I'll bet yours taste Super !!
Thanx for all the great info & for sneaking pics out of the olive factory! Never knew anything about how olive oil or soaps were made... till now. And it's good to see that some girls Still are learning to cook. In the USA, most girls don't even wanna learn !
Ante, despite the hard work, your life looks like Heaven ! It looks beautiful and peaceful there! You're a good man.

Jack, Don't forget those Christmas In Slovakia, Socialization, & Brewery photos. Would Luv to see those !!

I have a large order for my Oil
It will be used for "Kantarion Oil" production. I dont know other name for it but its mix of Extra Virgine Olive Oil and Hypericum perforatum herb (St John's wort - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) and its used in medicine for dermatological and psyhical problems. Oil has deep red colour and its known here as Virgin Mary herb Oil.
In my area that is one of "must to have this" things in each home.

Its in range of 12-20%, depends on many factors. We had mostly 14% this year. So for a 100kg of raw olives we get 14kg of oil (15,5 liters).

So it's not an export mass production, ay? Or do people in your neighbourhood also have large fields where they grow olives also for export? I know for sure that all those in our shops are from Italy...

Btw. how are you, long time no see...

Well, honestly, I can't remember.
Which means that it's perfect. No, really, going nicely, just the 2°C nights are giving me headaches. Girls are usually pretty much covered with some clothes, so the summer remains my favorite time of the year anyway.

Today I received a package from Ante. Inside were some of his olive oil and some "Tonic" We sat down to have some olive oil with garlic and parmesan on french bread with a bottle of Spanish Albarino wine before dinner but we never even got to the cheese or the dinner!

I'm enjoying some tonic now! Thanks Ante, you the man!!

I just pm'd Ante to buy 3 bars of soap & a bottle of olive oil & he said he can't tke money fron paypal. How do we compensate Ante for what he sends us? It costs him $25-30 $$ to send a yellow sub!
