Really glad there is a forum for us

It's great that the Floridians have their own forum. No more "why do you get payed the same amount in the winter." or other things the rest of the country can't comprehend bc they don't know our state.

It is nice, but I am not sure if they should of divided it up into turf grass zones. We would still get the same question you mentioned as the guys in AL and GA but they also have similar turf grasses, and can have similar soil conditions so we might have more response in these threads. I am pretty sure that all the folks from FL have not found the forum down here yet, or at least are not posting on them but I think if it was maybe a larger as described above it would be more active.

Thank goodness you are fenced off by yourselves where you can do no harm to the rest of us in normal states.

Doubt that they will be heading to your colder weather anytime soon, but if it keeps getting colder down here every year......then prepare for the MN state anthem to sound a little like this.

Yep Too bad we can't build a build a fence at the state line to keep the Tin Can tourist from Coming to Florida with a Clean shirt and a Five Dollar bill. They Don't change either and stink up our enviroment.

In case you haven't noticed, Ohio probably sends more winter population and tourists your way than any other state. We're trying to contribute some normalcy, at least, notwithstanding lots of bucks. This is us:

Yep, that looks like an Ohioian. No hair, shorts pulled up to their nipples and penny loafers with no socks. They are lining up at every buffet right now for the early bird special.

Yep you got them pegged. The only way you can tell them apart from Canucks is the Ohioians leave a Quarter tip. Whereas the Canucks try and argue for a 25% discount.

Attention Canucks: When in Rome do as the Romans. Tips are To Insure Proper Service with out spit on your food. If you guys only knew how much Extra spit you have eaten because you don't tip, you would never come to Florida or Early Bird specials. Oh BTW Have A Nice Day Canada.
