    Do yourself a favor and get those hands fixed. I had CT surgery finally after getting to the point of not being able to sleep. Best thing I've done in years. Of course plan on not being able to do anything for about a month and without insurance your looking at $10K per hand, but it's worth it. I still use WB and stander mowers with Z style controls, but I can not use the older grip ones if I want. Biggest thing is I can sleep. Of course I still have arthritis, but one thing at a time.

    I am betting on Glycerol being the main product in this lesco product since it is so abundant

    Only if you want to sell ant baits later. :laugh:

    molasses is a good carbon magic bean.

    Honestly some sugars are good but I doubt you are getting the same result. Not even sure how good this result will be until I now more.

    Nut, thats bad man.
    This year seems to have so much widespread drought.
    Not as bad here, but still mild drought.

    Damn Oak Nut, that's bad. Lawns here are brown too, not surprising since it's been 100 degrees.

    It's looked like that for several weeks now. It crunches when you walk on it.

    My front yard is doing OK. It's only about 30'x30', so I've watered it and it looks better than most on my street, but I can't afford to water the back too, so it just turns brown.

    Driving down the street yesterday I really took note of all the completely brown lawns. Nobody here in my immediate area irrigates, so that's all you see.
