    The crux of the financial markets and consumer inflation in one paragraph by David Einhorn 


    Hasn't inflation always been here to stay?  I'm no economist, but isn't inflation kind of arbitrary / artificial, relative to wages?  Listened to these guys detail it a few months back, was relatively informative to me as a noob when it comes to this stuff.  https://www.iheart.com/podcast/105-stuff-you-should-know-26940277/episode/what-causes-inflation-83185373/

  2. While SNE was enjoying the sun on Saturday, we were socked in with clouds all day, but it the cloud cover, lack of wind (dead air), and relatively warm lake water made for some great large mouth action.

    Same site, I presume.

    I'm not sure where the old observer was located, but this'll be a new site.  Old COOP person retired, and GYX reached out to me based on my CoCoRAHS data and location.  I'm within 2-3mi from the jetport, depending on where at the jetport you are, so a good enough proxy to call it official.

    I was going to do nematodes too, but with the baby at home I just don't know if I'll have the time to commit to applying them before they die. Might be a next spring deal.

    I hear ya, I've been there :)


    I think they can live two weeks (maybe four) in the fridge.

    I takes me about 5 minutes to apply, fwiw.  Dump them in the watering can, pour (the temperature recommended) water in the can, water the impacted area.  

    Where it can take more time is if your soil is dry and you need to water first and then potentially again subsequent days.

    I think I have Japanese beetle grubs doing a number on my front lawn (neighbor across the street replaced his entire lawn after they got him) so I put down the milky spore for the first time. I prefer to do the least intrusive thing first before stepping up my assault.

    You could try beneficial nematodes.   They work well and quickly.  A little pricey due to shipping costs but they'll stop the damage as soon as you apply.  Milky spore takes a few years to be effective, and even more challenging here with our lower soil temps.

    Didn't realize that cheap Kentucky Bluegrass sod is a available here. The place I got it said there is a bunch of sod farms in CT, MA and RI. The sod I got had come in that morning from RI. Each 5x2 10 sqft piece was $6 so .60 sqft.

    We had a paver patio put in and it cost me less than $100 to instantly have nice lush weed free grass around it. Definitely worth it over dealing with germinating seeds and all the weeds. 



    Nice.  If it gets a lot of sun, and you're not getting rain, make sure you soak the hell out of it every morning.

    Hello forum folk. I am a longtime lurker and fan of all the speculation, insight and angst on this forum (especially during winter). 

    I am posting for the first time to ask about next weekend, where I will be getting married on Saturday in Rutland VT outdoors (9/11, I know, but there's only so many Saturdays). GFS, and CMC look like cool and sunny. I know it is a long way out but would appreciate any insight? Also, Larry, please head out to sea buddy (for my marriage's sake). 

    The Cullinane's aren't on your guest list, are they?

    It seems to work out for you in winter, where it counts.   I guess I can't blame ya :)

    1" is doable for you, but I think that's the high end.  2" is a little more doable for me, but even think that's the high end.

    So predictable for nne. Every single time since end of July. Over hyped models

    Since July?  This is your play in every storm, regardless of season!  Precip started an hour ago. Maybe give it until tomorrow to call bust?
