Hi Laurie! So far we have holey rocks and a hill of beans. What's next? Animal crackers?

Which begs the question: which cracker would you choose that might plant the seed leading us to our salvation -- that is, the location of the next Blog Cabin -- and some well-deserved rest?

Here are some ideas.... http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/9...

At this stage, while the beans are still being counted, I think I'll split my choices between the following trifecta:
Michigan for its black beans (which have me craving some spicy Cuban black beans and rice), Minnesota for those (delicious in chili) dark red kidney beans and, just maybe, all those golden green acres of Iowa cornfields.

And North Dakota? Bean there, done that, as the saying goes, so now it's on to the next vividly visual Location Clue Three from Virginia. (Seeing as Laurie has remained true to her word and kept momentarily mum -- quiet as a church mouse... so far!)

For clarification: it's all in the interpretation of the sentence "Our location is the nation’s leader in producing a variety of seed found in this image."

If the sentence were to read "Our location is the nation’s leader in producing a [single/specific/particular] variety of seed found in this image," we'd be looking for one seed along with the state that leads in producing it rather than "a variety of seed" -- as in the overall grouping of dry beans.

It may sound corn-y, but would Virginia make it THAT easy for us to identify North Dakota? I doubt it. So, the next step is, which seed do we want to plant that will lead us to our Blog Cabin location?

Could we be looking at a $150,000, 25 bedroom, 9,000 square foot fixer-upper in Velva, ND for our next Blog Cabin adventure? (Plenty of room for the extended family!) By the way, where the heck is Velva? http://circaoldhouses.com/hotel-berry-in-velva-no...

Well, I said we had a mineral clue in Location Clue One and asked for an animal or vegetable clue next -- and what we got is a hill of beans! That's a great response to a Blog Cabin fan's request! ^_^

I think I might jump on the North Dakota bandwagon for the time bean-ing.

Two-bit Tidbits -- quotes by the famous and the not so famous -- inspired by Martha's Vineyard

"Just take my hand, lead, dance with me... and I will simply follow the blueness of the water, the white waves rolling free... where the earth beneath my feet and stars make my heart whole again... in long and priceless moments of shared solitude..." Oksana Rus

"Just take my hand, smile, then give me the keys... and I will dance from here to Martha's Vineyard in long and priceless moments of sheer joy..."

Amazing! That's it, Sheri, that must be the answer to the Blog Cabin location! Those toothy grins are leading us right to Laughing Rock Technologies in Reading, Pennsylvania! Then there's also the borough of Picture Rocks, PA, or Falling Rock (a PA luxury hotel) and even Slippery Rock University in the rolling hills of western PA.

You can choose from the coastal plains, Piedmont uplands or lowlands and the Gettysbury-Newark Lowlands, Buckingham Valley, the Blue Ridge Mountains, glaciated plateaus and the Great Appalachian Valley.

There you have it. Your laughter was great inspiration to delve into the serious stuff of PA geology!

Besides, who wouldn't want a Blog Cabin in picturesque Berks County, PA?

With scenery this beautiful, and a wide variety of rocks, streams, enchanted forests, rugged mountains and verdant valleys to go around, why not Pennsylvania?! http://pix.mdmpix.com/680/2008/2008-10-20_002/Sli...

I think these rocks are trying to tell us something. Could it be the Blog Cabin location? http://www.sweetgeodes.com/wp-content/uploads/201...
