Tall, slender shrubs that thrive in heat and sun - Crescent Connection
Finally giving up on sky pencil hollies...they shrivel up and die within 2 years. My garden bed faces the West, so it gets the hot, afternoon sun unabated. Looking for something that can grow 8-10 ft tall and no wider than 2-3 feet in width. Looking at pencil point juniper. Any other suggestions? ...

Cost to replace A/C condenser coil? - Crescent Connection
Butcher A/C came by and quoted me $1085 to replace my condenser coil. The part is under warranty, but they said $1085 was the cost for shipping and labor. Am I getting raped, or does it normally cost this much for labor? Also, I was kind of weary when the technician came by and diagnosed the pro...
