    Re: Quiet here lately......

    The hospital doesn't want to know me 'til I'm in my 60s Mark. How are you going with the hip you were having injections in? Did you end up doing some traveling?

    Re: What's this plant

    Wild choko I call them here. Mongrel things. Latex sap that stains clothes and don't ever let one burst open which they do by themselves as they age anyway. Thousands of little black seeds with white...

    Re: Piston or diaphragm sprayer?

    I'll never buy another Solo product again after the trouble I've had with them over the last two years. Don't ever pull apart those diaphragm backpacks as you'll most likely never get them back...
