    Gotcha, my primary firestick just started having issues with staying onbthe network. Computer, phone, TV all connected but stick wouldn't find either wifi or ethernet connected. Got secondary stick and it worked fine.

    So just bought an Nvidia Shield Pro to replace the primary, my TV requires reliable equipment as I stream 100% of my viewing.

    Roku here. If you don’t use Alexa to control the channel they are pretty much the same. Only difference is roku can stream in 4K (if your TV can handle it) and Amazon caps at 1080p (the last I saw)

    Alright all you landowners and farmers.

    What is a true one and done weed killer that actually lasts 12 months as advertised?

    Been using Ortho Ground Clear for the past couple years, I'm lucky if it lasts 5 months. I'm sure the heavy rains we had don't help much, but is there a trick to it that I may be missing?

    I've always used 41% gly and LV4.
    Add some surfactant.
    Always good luck for 100%kill if I get enuff on the plant.

    I've never had any weed killer last for a year. I treat my properties at least twice per year. I only spray my soybeans once because they get so thick I'd wreck them if I drove through them again. That and I don't harvest them or plant them for profit.

    The trick is to spray the weeds as late as possible so that your 2nd application is in August (the later the better) and hope colder weather hits before the weeds can sprout again.

    So the up to 12 months is just a sales gimmick.

    I pretty much do what you said. I'm mainly spraying cracks and seams on the driveway and areas I have weed barriered and rocked. Mostly crab grass and some vines on the privacy fence coming from neighbirs side.

    Today I mixed it about 2.5 times the recommended solution and sprayed heavy. Need to mix up a half batch tomorrow to finish up.

    Seeds that come early like some grasses, dandelions, even clovers will sprout and grow, so unless the chemicals listed are similar to preen. You'll bound to get weeds in from some where.

    Well found the card yesterday. Not where I thought it would be. My daughter and I looked where I took my shirt off and it wasn’t there. So I decided to go where I changed the cards in the camera. Well on my way there on dumb luck would have I look down there it is about half way where I was headed. I should have taken a pic where it was. I don’t know why I looked down but I did. Got home and checked it had lots of does and 1 or 2 small bucks.

    Having been a soccer goalie for four years back in high school I love soccer. I believe it really is just a few ,that managed to ruin it for them all. It's time for the majority to kick out the few and retain the joy of the game.

    Maroons that keep sending emails for the same thing while someone is out of the office. I have one email every day I was out and one again today asking for the same thing.

    Hey, A@@HOLE! You are the f@@king account manager. If you don't have the information you are asking me for, you don't deserve to be in that position. For the amount of energy you have expended writing these emails, you could have looked up the information yourself-3 times.

    signed,

    the pain in your ass for the next 26 months.

    Receiving my first raise since 2019 and realizing that may only pay for like 3 extra gallons of gas a month. LOL

    Very true. Would make me just put that same amount back into pre tax contributions to fall back into the lower bracket. Ha

    Why would anyone put their career on the line in a community like Portland? One that would love to make an example of an officer who is just trying to do their job in combating violent criminals. You know a job that entails getting out there and shaking down people that are extremely dangerous...risk being labelled a profiler or if something happens then be charged with something by some liberal prosecutor? Good for them in not signing up. Portland has prob like 800 officers. We arent that far behind.
