| Outdoor Board|| My last fertilizer thread of the month, I promise. - Ice Cream Sammich on 5/31/14 at 8:58 pm|
I started a thread earlier asking if all the current rain saturated the yards around Baton Rouge too much to fertilize today and got a resounding yes.
I spent the rest of my day trying to figure out how to have the best yard in the neighborhood. This is where my question comes into play.

| Money Talk|| Help buying a GMC - Ice Cream Sammich on 5/6/14 at 12:37 pm|
I never post on this board because I rarely have anything to offer. However, I could use some help on this purchase. I used Will Covers method, the best I could. This is for people that have an insight on GM vehicles.
The main issue is that this is a rare truck. Only 3 within 500 miles of BR.

Got Centipede in my yard right now. I just did some soil PH test and it came back 7.4. This is far too high for Centipede and will be a work of God to get down to the 5-5.0 range. Solution: Switch to Zoysia which has a ideal PH range of 6.5-7.
How I want to accomplish this:

I recently picked up my fiance a black lab puppy. I have accepted the fact that this dog will be a big lap dog but I am hoping I can make him useful for something.

Well, title may be a bit misleading and I am glad that the gun in the video was not loaded but it still teaches a lesson. "Experts" on this board believe that leaving a home defense (HD) shotgun unloaded and racking the pump will scare any intruder away, leaving a trail of shite behind him.
