Bad news about the EAB, but as you said, I guess we all knew it was just a matter of time. I'm not sure why they are removing the ash only in a 1/2 mile radius? Seems to me I read somewhere the flight was 2-4 miles on the EAB.
Are you on a mailing list of Dr. Holt's? If so, how might I subscribe?
We still have about 120 yd of mulch to put down. Round 2 of the apps. has started. Two "emergency" 12K sod jobs, several small installs and the mowing is in full production. The weather this week has been just great.

"But at home one is bound with petty regulations and irksome restraints.....He feels lost even in great crowds, for nothing and no one seem in sympathy. The people he knows may be good fellows, but they do not understand him, and he does not understand them. he longs to get back to the bush, for there he felt an exaltation that no civilized land can possibly supply." -Denis D. Lyell
