Re: Zoysia

This morning I located what appear to be eleven (11) zoysia sprouts in the barren corner where I planted about 2/3 of a pound of seed a couple of weeks ago. :D

Re: Tornado Season

Sadly, last night there were some fatalities (2 in a mobile home park) and a lot of damage and injuries (at a hotel on I-40) last night at a neighboring city (El Reno - home of old Fort Reno and the federal penitentiary) about 15 miles west of us.

Re: Amazing NBA finals game

Looking forward to the final round. I hope the teams are evenly matched and that it will take all 7 games to determine the winner.

Re: The Gentlemen's Quarter - SALE

Hello Colleen! It's great to see you back in business. I clearly remember following your business a few years back, and at the time was dismayed when you had to shut down. Thanks for posting the news here at SMF. I wish you all manner of success.

Re: Amazing NBA finals game

In games such as these, I just sit back and enjoy every minute. I have no stake in the outcome, but the competition is ferocious. I admire the excellent performance of the Raptors after losing early.

Re: Brush of the day

Gary, I notice the SilkSmoke gets more use for you than the Synbad restore/reknot you did a few months back. Do you mind giving a little info on whether you prefer the Silksmoke and why? I am enjoying my Synbad but do like the look of the Silksmoke knot. See my response in Shaving Brushes. http://f...

Re: Starting over with an open blade

Tim, one truth I've learned about buying straight razors is that one man's edge may be called shave ready and properly done, but the next man disagrees.

Re: Zoysia

It sounds as though I shouldn't be expecting very good results this time If it doesn't do well in hot dry climates. My planting was bad timing. We've had record rains in the past week or so since I planted it. Torrential soaking rains are never helpful with seeds. I've been curious about St. Augusti...
