Re: GSBN:Photos of bales and stacks

Hi Joyce,

I understood that there was a very interesting hog barn built using
giant round bales in Alberta a few years ago. It was unplastered as I
remember and had a silo roof plunked on top. The intention was to
create a temporary structure, but I believe it served shelter for
some years. I don't have more info than that.... perhaps it is one of
those mythic structures we love to spin tales about.

Thanks for adding to the list of words meaning straw. I didn't see an
attachment showing round bales. Do you ever used round bales for sb
construction? We've rebaled a few round bales into square bales for
construction, but I don't know of anyone who has used round bales
for walls.
I can't imagine why one would do this.

Appreciate the help!

Hello all,

We're beginning to work on the annual resource guide for
publishing in
December 2006 (Note the change in month of publishing from
September to
December to follow a calendar year).

For the cover, we'd like to include photographs of the different
types of
haystacks and strawbales around the world, and include the word
"straw" in
as many different languages as we can. If you have jpg or tiff
files (300
dpi) black and white or color that you'd like to share for this
please send as soon as you can.

Your help will be greatly appreciated!
