    Hey, does anyone remember this thread from years ago?

    They should repeat that one........................it had over 20,000 views.

    It went on for over a year and I'm wondering how some made out with the advise.

    Well, the Turfdog is not dead yet!!
    Glad to see you back.
    Now maybe we can get back to some serious topics again.

    BTW, I have that thread bookmarked and re-read every now and then. Too bad it went downhill.

    Nah, ain't dead just yet...................another divorce(makes two) and a major beat-down from the judical system threw me for a loop. Hey, that's cool, as this time there where no kids involved.

    I happened upon copies of the thread the other day while cleaning up the office...........a place I don't spend much time at. Dang, it was as thick as a book. I personally learned alot from that thread.

    We should bring it back!

    Cut out some of the bullshirt and go on with it......................it would be way too much work to start from scratch, especially since I don't want to reiterate alot of it.

    But, and make no mistake about it, I could.

    So..........what did you learn?
    Probably ONE of THE most informative threads that has ever been created here. Please make sure you separate the wheat from the chafe. There are many others here...........if you know where to look.

    We MUST get this topic going again!
    If anyone is serious about growing their business then this is the topic that MUST be discussed.

    Once you understand the science behind plant growth, I guarantee your business will expand, your prices will rise and your competition will be left in the dust.

    It is November, does everyone have their cool season grass' "fuel tank" full??

    Let's go.

    I only made it through page 11 all good information except for the whining.

    I didn't get to a part about Potassium. Possibly it comes later in the thread? I am a big fan of the K here in the desert SW along with my Humic acids injected through my irrigation systems.

    I am lucky enough to be in that top 25% for the majority of my clients.

    BTW I really enjoyed you writing style, very entertaining. I especially liked the company name Ambivalent Lawn Service and slogan "If you don't care we don't either", or something to that effect.

    Glad your back on site I will continue catching up on the old thread as time permits.

    We are just getting started mowing our winter lawns here and putting up the holiday decorations.

    I don't have all the free time my Midwestern and Northeastern brethren have but the first 11 pages was more entertaining than whats on the tube..
