I agree with bob also, however its a much differnt place here. We are guideing folks along so their out come is one of quality, and within standards. At homers they hold clincs and misinform people all the time, Its very rare that they will give good infor, mostly they give folks a bucket of mastic, a plastic notched trowel, and a bag of soft spacers and send them down the road.

Starts with an M- Marigolds, to combat bugs in the asparagus behind them in the third bed on the right.

Yes, she cracked the tile beating it into the stone dust, should've gone to the TCNA class.
