    Ric, is one member who adds true value to this site. So many members just post to get their numbers up. They have something to say about everything.

    Thanks Ric. I agree. This was a great resource at one time. Not too bad now if one doesn't mind the distractions. Maybe we should gang up on the organic board??? Start lobbying for the full use of DDT again?

    BTW...No such thing as a generic version of that "stuff" we were talking about. I also tried to find an alternate industrial application so as to find a "non-conventional source" but the effort was fruitless.

    We still have some knowable people here at LS, but Guys Like Groundskper have moved on and are greatly missed. Just like you, I still talk on the phone with him. I catch him on AOL messenger at least once a week. However we talk about Family issues mostly and not Agronomy. I don't blame LS, just things evolve and people move on. You and I have both been absent for periods of time but have come back. Maybe Jim will post again one day, He did reply to one of my post recently.

    Tree Huggers, Got to laugh at them. There is a Numero Uno Tree Hugger in the next county North of me. Some of the large companies will set up new Salesmen with a false appointment with her for Pest Control service just to find what the New Guy is made of. One such story is when a guy got a brand new spray tank that never had Pesticides in it only straight water with Blue food coloring. The truck then staged a Big Leak letting a few hundred gallons of the blue water spill in front of her house.

    BTW Adding SOM to our sandy soil here with organic Fertilizer or composts has a lot of value. CEC and Hydraulic conductivity are greatly improved. However I got myself Ban from the Organic forum many years ago by getting the then Moderator a little up set with proven science. Read my reply to his introduction of himself which is still a sticky in the organic forum. I can log off and still read that forum, But I can not post to that forum for years now.

    We all lose when discussion and debate is squelched, no matter what the topic. But that forum often lacks the respect that professional's insight has to offer, and too often has a total disregard for those that challenge their total belief in "whole hog" totally organic lawn care.

    Members such as you, Tim, and Jim were just dismissed when comments of melding the benefits of organic with conventional care were discussed. Many of us saw the real benefits of combining products, varying applications and increased IPM procedures that integrated both organic and conventional products and methods - thus making for truly professional level discussions.

    But these discussions were few and far between and sometimes shouted down and dismissed by the militants on the board. It has kept the forum from attaining value for the real professional.
