Re: Looking for an expert in how bananas are grown, harvested, treated and shipped

That's fine, but what Richard was getting at in his first comment is that you should upload an index.html (or whatever the exact name your host uses) even if that is an empty file (which would render...

Interesting. Yesterday they were 69 cents / Lb at Wal-Mart in central FL, same as they were @ Publix late last week. (which surprised me)
