re: Virginia Buttonweed will destroy your lawn. - baldona
As said, you just have to use the proper chemicals for your grass during the proper time of year. Nuke it when the time is right, then keep an eye on it. Not sure if it's common, but I also found that the VBW did very well in wet shady areas that my st Aug didn't do well in. Keep your st Aug long...

re: Chicago with kids - baldona
Went this late spring with a 4.5 and 2 year old to visit family and hit up Wrigley. We got the 5 pass City pass thing for the Architecture boat tour, museum of science and industry, ferries wheel at navy pier (only thing we did there), sears tower, and field museum. Thoughts kids were too young for ...

[quote] But if have a boat with 900hp it better do more than 60mph.[/quote] W. T . F.? How fast does a pontoon boat go with 1 300hp motor? I would think 1 300 would make them fast as hell, how is 900hp even possible? Also, how does all that weight on the back not make the bow stick up a lot?...

re: Wanting to trade tuna for catfish - baldona
This. Anyone that says they can tell the difference between properly prepared fried catfish and fried bass is full of it. Maybe, just maybe a bigger catfish filet by texture. But you take a 3 lb catfish and a 3 lb bass and fry both, its the same thing. I honestly don't know why you'd trade ca...

re: Mass casualties (Update 17 deaths ) with the Duck boat ride in Branson, MO - baldona
There's video out from the 2nd duck boat that made it back. The people were half way joking around except the guy making the video, no one had on life jackets, and you can see the inside of the windows and what not. The driver and captain look old as shite, 65+. Also looks like maybe the door is in ...

re: Mass casualties (Update 17 deaths ) with the Duck boat ride in Branson, MO - baldona
Man, that picture leads me to believe there was some MAJOR captain error here. The time of the video and the height of the boat off the water lead me to believe they would have had ample time to get to shallow water where the boat would not have sunk. Get to 5-6 ft depth and everyone lives. Inste...

re: Mass casualties (Update 17 deaths ) with the Duck boat ride in Branson, MO - baldona
Obviously the lake was pretty deep in that spot but the boat took awhile to sink. I'm curious how far they were from a shallow portion of the lake? This time of the summer any driver should be pretty experienced. It looks like the boat captain tried to make it back to the landing instead of simply m...
