thanks for all the advice!!! especially the grubs!! Forgot about those. Here I went and bought mole, vole, gopher poison...should have bought grub-ex. "milky spore"?? never heard of it. What store can it be purchased?

Guess I should look for some stray cats and start feeding also...great idea there too.

Decent day out again...Guess I'll shop for some poison and get it laid down before the possible snow comes!! Almost time for football this afternoon!

Ya know...I believe that this conversation was proof that the warm weather was killing the forum. Classic discussion but when ya sit and research classes of lasers and eye safety when you should have been out hunting, trapping...

I learned more than I ever wanted to about lasers and eye safety a few years ago when we spec'd and installed a 1Gb laser link between two buildings at work. More useless info my brain will never be rid of....probably pushed some good chili recipe out to make room...

Here's a link about milky sprore:

http://www.milkyspore.com/milkyspore.htm

Milky spore powder contains the bacteria Bacillus popillae. The milky spore powder inoculates an area of turf and can control Japanese Beetle grubs (Popillia japonica) for decades. The milky spore bacteria infects and then multiplies within the grub host. When the larva dies the disease is spread to surrounding areas of the lawn or garden. This is good because it can then kill grubs for may years.

The product is sold by the big box garden centers. It has a shelf life and the big garden centers put it on sale for next to nothing at the end of the season.

big bertha has her appetite back again, was 2 degrees last night, right now it's 4 and dropping. I like it when there is a good rhythm going, stoker runs quite a bit when it's cold.

We had -11F Saturday morning and -9F Sunday morning. High Saturday was about 4 above and yesterday we had a real heatwave of 11 above for a short while. Not real windy, but noticeable. Beautiful, clear weather but just butt-cold!

Basement is running 80F with the Keystoker cranking away, but the gas furnace still runs a bit keeping the rest of the house at 68. Just can't get the heat up the stairs fast enough without cutting holes in the house. Nevertheless, it's sooooo nice to sit in front of the stove and be so toasty warm!
