Guess I was out of the loop on this...or do I just not remember?

http://www.nctimes.com/business/arti...7511071c1.html

Either I missed this or just forgot about it. Been more than a year since the article.

For you guys who use Unique products more than I do, how's this transition going?

So, if Toro owns Unique, and Hunter owns FX, which lighting company is Rain Bird going to acquire?

Yep. My kids tell me when I repeat myself now too. They get impatient about it the way I used to with my dad.

What goes around....

None. They aren't very interested in getting into the lighting marketplace at this point.

If they were smart they would take a hard look at Vista.... but then again their market share is so large that they probably don't need to bring on a lighting line.
