I think you and the other citi data members will appreciate this story and she even asks those who are passionate aboute gardening to email her!!! Now if someone could post a link to that story which includes her email address ,that would be great. It's in local news South Meck section ! Hope this helps!
This is great! I'll have to put Google to work and see what I can find out.

Just started doing some minor landscaping at my new house in Cornelius. The soil was mostly clay. I had to hoe it up a bit, break the clods, and add compost and planting soil. Wasn't bad though.

I commend Charlotte, though, for having the foresight to get their light rail now instead waiting 10 years too late like Seattle did.
If you move to an area expecting to be disappointed, you surely will be.

I live 10 miles from Center City Philadelphia & 2 miles from a light rail station that has been operating since 1969. I will not be able to afford such a location in the Charlotte area, but I will be happy to leave horrifying taxes & an economy where all of the decent-paying jobs that I am qualified for have been fleeing to the Carolinas for the last 10 years, I'll be happy with whatever I fnd there, unless, of course, it's a snake in my toilet.

Well, I sure hope you don't find a snake in your toilet. I have heard of someone finding a mouse in her toilet, but no snakes here in NC. Not saying it never has happened here! Just never heard of it!!! Hee Hee Hee.

Now, I knew a lady who found a snake in one of her hanging baskets when she was watering it.

The local news showed a giant snake that some lady found in her toilet, somewhere, Ani.
