My yard sucks... LOL It's a good thing I have a big dog to blame it on...
I happen to be the owner of an established landscraping company, this marking my 10th year unscrewing things for disgruntled rock ranchers and weed aficionados. Divide your yard up into 8 sectors and take a 4" deep soil sample from each. You don't need a lot in each one (3 tablespoons is plenty) but you need a good representative sample of the soil profile throughout the root zone. Mix it all together thoroughly so that the 8 samples are blended, because you're trying to get an average for the 8 areas. Contact your local or state ag department and ask them where to send samples for soil analysis, and they'll let you know what you need to do. pH is a biggie, as it controls which nutrients are available for use in the grass plants. If it's way low or high, the grass won't be able to make use of the fertilizers.
If you buy topsoil, ask for a pH level. I test it myself using a bi-metallic tester with a gauge, but the troops at the state lab will give you an actual chemical test.

Went to Wal Mart, one box of .380 left on the shelf, some birdshot, nothing else. For the third week in a row.

All the gun cleaning supplies you could want.

I think newbs are buying all the ammo, and not cleaning their guns.

Pepsi was on sale, but I didn't want to be gay/bi/uni/asexual, so I spent more on Vault, in cool camo cans.

Found Hershey Kisses, in camo foil wrappers. Don't like Hershey Kisses, but bought em anyway.

Stripping my M-44 stock. The wife has woodburning skills. I want to burn a design into the stock. Any ideas?

I'm contemplating a portrait of Putin, as I respect him more than the world's No.1 S*****ist leader.

I considered J.D.'s old avatar, as a sort of tribute, and I admire him greatly, but that borders on Pepsi drinking.

Can't go wrong with an American symbol. Bald eagle, American flag, the American flag atop Mt. Suribachi, Iwo Jima, etc.

Ya, I figured that would beat any other weapon Arnold has ever held in any of his movies. Please prove wrong.
