    Have you ever jumped out of the back of a plane with no chute?

    When a poster on this forum for some reason changes the font color so that it cannot be read without highlighting the text. What is the reason for that??

It's not dead, it's just a defense mechanism allowing it to survive. As soon as the cool weather and rains come back in late summer/fall, it'll spring back to life. So up to you if you want to spend the $ on keeping it green or not.



    My problem with having a dormant lawn is that crabgrass will start to creep in from the driveway/curbs, and I need to dig it all out to keep it from fully taking over. If I keep my grass long and green, then nothing else has a chance to even get started.

    HOT TIP: when you do start to water it or it rains again/whatever, there will be some spots where the grass just doesn't seem to want to come back to life. I bet the problem is for some reason the soil has become hydrophobic, and water is just running off the surface to the area around it (which will get green, quick). Solution is to put some baby shampoo in a sprayer and soak the spot with it. It'll get nice and bubbly. Then go back to just straight water and rinse it all away. Take a soil sample (with an aerator or just test with a screwdriver even) and you'll see that now water is getting down to the roots and in a few days it'll look much better. Worst case you are just adding more water to your grass, so it can't hurt.
    Hey appreciate that, especially the hydrophobic bit. Definitely have that going on in the worse patch. Will give the baby shampoo a try.

    To the green lawn naysayers - As a somewhat new home owner, I don't think I need to apologize for wanting my property to look a certain way. Also I as well as Paulster are in Ontario - we aren't exactly hurting for water resources.

    EDIT ok Paulster kinda beat me to the punch with the last bit.

    Maybe directed at me?

    I have to browse/post from my phone, since work computer is blocked from anything not work related. Copying, pasting, then reformatting text on the phone is annoying, so I often don’t reformat, and you get to see copied black text on a dark blue background.

    Decided to finally get around to cleaning the clothes dryer vent, which hasn't been cleaned since we installed that dryer - around 9 years ago. Floor underneath was pretty filthy... but it wasn't as bad as the lint covered, mummified chipmunk / ground squirrel that came out of the wall vent when I disconnected the hose. Gross.

    There wasn't that much lint buildup otherwise.

    Shit that annoys you

    Fucking corporate Big Brother

    Three years ago I went to a coffee shop while I was visiting my sister halfway across the country. The barista asked if I had a rewards number so I gave them my sisters phone number so she would get the points toward a free drink or whatever.

    Fast forward to this year, we go to a coffee roaster in the PNW and she says she’s been getting texts from them about reward points! Which is crazy because she’s never been to this coffee shop. We figured someone put in the wrong phone number for their coffee here in WA and she’s been getting their points.

    Well today I went to that shop again and she texted me that she just got more points! So it turned out this mystery points guy is me, somehow just paying with my card and her phone number in the Midwest attached my card to that account.

    Call me a kook but I may go with all cash from here out.

    Square does this. Lots of places use Square. They link the credit card to a phone number.

    I believe you can default to the blue background on your phone as well.

    You can, and I’ve tried it a few times (made it many seconds before reverting!), but I didn’t ever get into MySpace, so I prefer reading on a white background like a normal person?

    I started working part time at a store, and this guy comes in and says: “I came in your store because of the flag outside. Our country’s flag.”
    I say: “OK”
    He says: “Not the rainbow flag.”
    Me, shrugging, “OK, great. What are you trying to say?”
    Jackass: “I came in here because that’s our flag, the one in the Constitution, our country’s flag.”
    I’m trying to get the store open, so I’m walking around, and then I walked back in front of him and say: “You’re being very confrontational.”
    Fuckface: “I’m saying that that’s our country‘s flag.”
    Me: “OK, fine.” I’m shrugging, kinda shaking my head.
    Fucktard leaves w/o buying anything.

    I’m beyond annoyed that that’s how this country is now. Why the confrontation? What the fuck?
    Just stay under your rock, you dumb fuck.
    Well maybe I'm the faggot America

    Dude thinks the pledge of allegiance is from the constitution!

    Is there a rainbow flag flying as well? If so, maybe he was implying that the one disrespects the other?

    I wonder how he feels about the confederate flag...

    I always knew those Constitutional framers were forward-looking people, but I never realized they even foresaw that we'd have 50 states one day!
