    Nice stuff ROTAR, no comment on sch 40, looks like I've lost that battle.
    What is that cage in pic#2? Do you take your badger to the job?
    Hope someone chimes in, I think that's what is called a "tree fern", very cool!

    Cage looks like a milkcrate. Really handy for storing larger fittings.

    Man, haven't seen a large live mimosa tree in the Long Island/NYC area in a while. There was some kind of "plague" that killed off most of them. Not too many survived, but some stayed alive here and there. They are making a comeback to some areas.

    When I was a kid growing up in the 60's and 70's, we had a huge mimosa tree. [​IMG] Called the flowers "Phyllis Diller Heads".

    Nice tree if planted in an appropriate location. Have one in my front yard where I am living at for the moment and have seen them planted in lawns (not a good lawn tree). Damned messy but the hummingbirds love them.
