The swastika has always been a symbol of good luck and family unity. When the Nazi's adopted it the original meaning was lost. I have an old cast iron trivet hanging in my kitchen that has a swastika, an oriental rug with them in the borders and an advertisement from a flour company in Buffalo NY that used them in advertisements. You will also see them on old good luck coins similar to this one.

My co-worker lives on a farm so he has brought some feed corn for me, but it was kind of small and not very tasty. Poor cows. I missed that taste.
Charlie, see if you can get someone to try to grow Hickory Cane corn. It's very starchy and not very sweet, but it has a bold corn flavor.

Charlie, I'm in zone 4B/5a. Hickory Cane needs 110-120 days post germination to mature. Not going to grow in MN. Olivia, MN is known for its sweet corn...

The Story of Corn - History Detective - Many Kinds of Corn
According to your link, it looks like the corn plant is the research food of today replacing the peanut. We are getting as many products and uses from corn as was discovered with the peanut. An interesting read. Recommended.
