a sterling field
the cornfield along sterling creek road has the most suburban amenities of any field i've seen...new blacktop, concrete curbs, street lights...the whole development enchilada...it also seems to have a new real estate broker...seems cbre/bradley wasn't doing the job of turning it from cornfield to subdivision with sufficient alacrity...best of luck tot hem...i still found a lot of corn on cobs out there...mostly on the north side of the field, closer to the strip mall and the 24/7 traffic at the super walmart...have to think it will be the last side of the field to be gleaned...when the critters are hungry enough not to be frightened...if you look closely at the left of the photo ( top one ) of the hospital ( another amenity for a burgeoning population...build it and they will come...so will the profits, but that is a subject for a different blog ) you can just make out the edge of the sprawl...i wonder if there will be another crop on sterling creek in 2013.
an industrial worker and university student (everyone needs a hobby...my hobbies have evolved and, to keep things straight, i have left my formal student career behind for reasons that are too detailed to delve into here...continuing to be a student of life however and not adverse to learning...stasis is death ) sliding down the back side of middle age...a social loner with collectivist leanings...explain that.
