Is this True?

Hi, we just paid $50 to have a rock chip repaired in a windshield, with the clear goo.

Re: Vegetable garden books/raves/rants

I love, love, love my garden and it is the one thing I will really miss when I move.

I'd recommend:

Chicken wire on the inside of whatever fence you use, extending down 6 inches, to keep the bunnies out. Make sure you put hardware [more]

Possible Abuse of Authority by Inspector
