I'm not ready to go that far yet. There are invasives species that respond to little other than herbicides. Until we get the most problematic invasives under control a pesticide ban would surely condemn some species to extinction.

I'm sure I don't waste 10%. My Mom grew up during the depression and she drilled "waste not, want not" into our heads. Aside from that I'm a food storer. I keep 3 to 6 months of food on hand. And the first rule of food storage is "eat what you store, store what you eat". I frequently go for a week o...

I think the Earth will manage man as much as it can until man changes the condition where the earth's climate changes so much, as to negate man's ability to feed himself . . . .

In all seriousness, this is a horrible tragedy- the fact that it went on for so long because he was a football coach. Reminds me a lot of the Catholic Church. Bingo. You don't want to make waves.

The problem with the area north of Big Bend is that it's desert and it'd be tough to grow much or raise critters ..... That's key. Don't buy any land that isn't arable.

Sounds good. I had a Costco Belgian White this afternoon at a friends pool party. Not bad. Their new IPA was tolerable but not great. The Belgian and the IPA have apparently replaced the German Lager and the Hefeweizen in their variety 'micro' brew case. I think it's an improvement. The German and t...

The Delos brings a longer eye relief then was possible in the Naglers. And it will be made in shorter focal lengths than the Pans - recall the Pans are a scaled line of eyepieces and eye relief became unmanageable in in the 15mm Pan (discontinued). The T6's have similarly short eye relief. So this m...
