    Watched the first episode recently but haven't gone back to it yet. I'll give it another go if you say you're digging it.

    Happy birthday! Cheers
  17. Hey Carl! I would ask Justin and Peter if the $500 Gilmore Lite mk2 will drive the Utopias the way you want them driven or else extend your experimental budget to cover the new GSX Mini, which is a very cool new product. Have fun!

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    Most people don't fall off things nearly as often as you, but still sound advice. 😎

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    Ours was put in similarly and I refused the herbicide that they can put under the turf mat because of our dog. The damned weeds did not sprout through the compacted stone but rather between the stone and the mat. It became a mat of weed roots that would them shoot up weeds through the turf. If you pulled them out, eventually you pulled up the turf with the weeds because the roots were so widespread underneath. I wish now that I had put in some kind of edging board around the turf because that was at least partly how the roots worked their way in. Just a word of caution not to let the weeds get established.

    The Official Head-Case Photography Thread.

    That is a lot of photography nerd jargon for one post! But great pics as always.

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    Don't laugh too hard, Craig. We spent an obscene amount to put turf down over packed crushed stone in a 20' x 25' yard in SF and it is now a terrible weed patch because the weed roots grow laterally under the mat and sprout up throughout. We fought it for a while but between that and gophers making holes in it we gave up. Diligence -- and some kind of edging where the turf meets soil -- is necessary but not nearly as much as a natural lawn requires.

    RIP someone or another

    I knew that she was at the end but damned if she didn't hang on to life and buck the predictions of her impending death years ago. RIP Rhoda. Oh yeah, and fuck cancer!
