    Maybe this is important enough to be over here in "high traffic"...
    Or maybe it is not and belongs over in Landscaping.
    But I figure it's not for me to decided and it can always be 'MOVED' so...

    I just wanted to share with everyone an e-mail I recieved recently.
    Don't know if anyone else got it, but here it is...

    I can't really comment on this one way or the other, but I thought it might be important to share anyways.

    All that mulch has supposedly been quarenteed, it was on the news.

    There are also cars that sat in the flood areas being sold. They look reconditioned but buyer be wary... (seen it on CNN)

    I'm banking on the panic the hoax email promotes to increase mulch sales for us this year. We are advertising locally produced mulch to see if it generates a higher percentage of interest over last season. Sold a lot of mulch last year, and would love to sell a ton more this year payup

    I'm not worried........I get dyed, the chemicals and heat from the dye would kill anything if it was living in the mulch. I only buy top-quality locally. I'm not too worried.

    BTW....I got the same email, I'd say that the chances of you getting a reconditioned car is more likely than you getting tainted mulch.
