    I Didn't know that. It's just like this Coffee Shop I used to go to, the big sign along the freeway said "BIOYA COFFEE SHOP". I drank coffee there many, many times. Then one day I met the owner and I asked him where the name BIOYA came from. He said with a smirk, "Didn't you know, it stand for Blow it Out Your Ass"!! He said that the City Hall didn't have any idea what it stood for when he applied for the Coffee Shop license.

      Who has incandescent bulbs anymore....? 150W can run a whole circuit of LED or even CF corkscrew bulbs. I dont even have a floor lamp in my house.

      Try the best, you wont be disappointed... I tried their ' best beer" and I didn't like it. Tried their 'best wine'. Mehh, I dont like wine. Even bought a Demon carburetor because they were supposed to be "good". Its QC sucked, would tear inlet O-rings every time.. Anyones "best" is debatable. You think their plant food is hot shit? Go to Korea and walk through an apple orchard where the apples are as big as grapefruits, and then find out they are fertilized by nothing more than the villages "Perfume river" sewer stream.

      Since you disagreed with me i guess you believe in “ Never be afraid to buy the cheapest cause you'll never be disappointed?” @pishta

      I just swore off their local store completely. Never anything in stock, and too much Chinese trash.

      Drove 20 miles today to get a hasp. Worth it.

        After one successful online purchase and delivery, I did an online order and the store decided they won't deliver to my address anymore. I had to drive across town to pick up my goods. Plus the store manager seemed very uninformed and naive about online orders. I spoke to the him on the phone and he really didn't want to discuss anything online at all, like he was disconnected from that system. Chinazon is much easier.

        They wanted $75 to cut the simpler chip key , which I got cut elsewhere for $24. Their stuff is poor quality and $$$. I guess that having 6 old farts helping you justifies the price.

            Funny you bring this up. When we first moved out here in 2002, The Ace of Gray was one of the nicest stores around. They had an "old fart" in every department that knew their department forwards and backwards and enough about the departments that "weren't theirs" to get the job done if they were short handed. "Mr Buddy" (RIP) as we knew him for instance, knew all there was to know about what electrical wire could take what load, how to run for correct county code, more than you'd ever wanna know about pluming, pipe threads and fittings.....you name it. Now they've all been replaced by kids barely out of high school who have no experience with anything. Nuthin. I think it's a corporate America thing, because O'Reilly has become the same way. They just basically forced another older guy out at the store where I worked. Good friend of mine. They hired a girl that knows not one damned iota about cars or parts and she damn well lets everybody know it. God help the customer that doesn't know what they want ahead of time.

            @RustyRatRod, those maters look great! Can’t plant here in MI until the end of the month. Heck, we might get frost again this week! But, my maters and peppers are living being in the greenhouse right now.

            When we actually lived in Macon before 2002, I had a plowed garden every year in the yard. That is, except 2002, because we knew we were moving that year. My Better Boys from 2001 were growing and producing maters all through the summer of 2002 right up until September when we moved. I've never seen maters come up from the previous year but they did.

            When we moved out here, I of course continued the tradition. For seven years. After that seventh year, I threw my hands in the air and gave up. Without fail, whatever I planted sprang up and grew and produced GREAT through the first half of the season. Then everything turned black and died the second half. This year, I decided to do tomatoes only in buckets, so we'll see how that goes. If they do well, I may do some raised beds next year. We'll see.

              Thanks. I either made um or broke um today. I transplanted them all into their own bucket instead of two buckets of four. Now there are eight buckets with one each. Dipped the roots in water before replanting and tied them up good. Added some mater food too. Now we've gotten some good showers this afternoon. I hope they'll perk back up. I think they will. They're pretty pissed off right now though.
