A question.
Did your house suffer any damage in the earthquake last month (or was it in March)?

shakin n quakin
just 3min shakin but only cracks look hair width
likely from paint or render drying- actually seems tru for rest of village - just shake everyone awake but no damages reported
-.
Griffith, i think is unique to wales- all we know is mother's mother folks come to boston on ship from london cia 1700 granny's paw from around Relief, north carolina & i like the name griffy as easy to say but thai's like say giffy- dropping 'r' & ok also, as he a nice gift also.

Hi Otis

everything looking great.

Question for you on the grass. Was the 10k just for the grass and install? or do you have a sprinkler system to? if no sprinkler what are you doing for watering the grass?

and how my meters did you cover and what type of grass?

Thanks

Trey

hi treys3d
we currently just manual water, is rainy season, so little effort required with garden hose
the price was installed for about 150sm, i did not measure just the quote we get
when do irrigation am thinking the small diameter drip tubes which i hope same on pump e cost
am holding final pay as some brown sections he say they greeen up. I say either green or replace for final
tb
i hope this not be simular to ac man
poor install and 1 identical ac ran at face t 10F lower than other unit. ( measured 3xs with his & my thermo on 3 diff days, same result) too many Crimped short radius bends. The guy finally gave up rather than do job correct alltho i offer xtra pay for correcting job with provisio i get old copper
he got his face by taking plastic covers
no big deal ac oversized but costing me more e to run less effic ac
