    THIS I quit watching pro football years ago when Bud Adams sold the Houston Oilers team to Tennessee. Was just getting interested in the Texans when this taking a knee shtf. I, too, see it as disrespectful of our flag and our country. I've always preferred the lights out play of college football to the showboating of the pros. Never was much of a basketball fan.

  3. If you're thinking of having winter rye this year, start planning now! September is the month you would want to either install or prepare to install a winter rye turf for the cold season. Such an adventure requires some planning in advance, which is why this column will address it a month in advance. Winter rye is a grass that is a deep green and looks exceptional. It grows and thrives in cold weather and can withstand any winter weather event we will see in North Texas. It is green and lush when everybody else’s turf is brown and dormant. It makes a homeplace look alive a

  4. I stopped watching the NBA because of the 1998 lockout, I got tired of listening to millionaires whining about being millionaires. The last straw for me was hearing Patrick Ewing trying to explain why he needed more money..."People complain that pro athletes make a lot of money; but what they don’t understand is that we need a lot of money because we spend a lot of money"

  5. I quit quit watching pro sports years ago because I got tired of people making millions bitching about being poor (see Ken Norton Jr). Be that said, for modern times @Sirhornsalot nails it in his post. As far as for "Chairman James" (he has no problem supporting China, who I believe is our worst enemy), even sh*t can have a good purpose (fertilizer) but it's still sh*t.

    I know I have said this before but I dont like the BLM lecturing in sports or in the schools preK through HS. I think its good to teach about racial equality but when they are teaching kids that America is not exceptional that bothers me. No indoctrination of Marxist ideology in public schools that receive tax dollars. I would like to give props to @DBut82. I dont watch the NBA but all I ever heard about LeBron was his BLM shirts and boycotts. My opinion of him wasnt good. DB told me about something I think everyone here can get behind. I know I do. Education is key to closing the

  9. I watch sports to get away from the trials and tribulations of life. It is my escape. I read and watch enough news to know or at least form an opinion of what is wrong in this country. I used to be a huge Mavs fan but somewhere along the line I became disenchanted with the way the game was played (no defense). I quit watching long before the civil unrest. The NFL is an easy explanation. With all the years of Cowboy mediocrity I slowly quit watching, and I have no desire to watch another team. The political stuff sealed the deal. Thank God for DVR's or I would probably have some difficulty

  10. I read some stuff on Josh Moore and I can tell you i am really happy for the young man. He got in trouble and could have just quit, but he was sorry and kept his head up. He kept working and stayed engaged in the program. He did his suspension and came back ready to play. We have seen enough to tell that he’s a really good player. He’s a good young man too. What I like is that he didn’t try to lie or blame anyone else. He said he got what he deserved. I am definitely a Josh Moore fan. He’s got a bright future.

  12. I used to do SEO/SEM to rank in Google. Their algo has changed over the past decade. All I would say is I dont trust their search results as much as I used to. They can suppress or promote listing unfairly now. It used to be violators were removed from the SERPs now they suppress/promote rankings based on their internal trust factor. Which is? Subjective to THEIR beliefs of which is mostly liberal. Google is pretty much a monopoly. The problem is they know it. What other options are there? Yahoo is utter trash. Bing is mediocre and their SERP relevancy isnt as good. Google ha

  13. I would to see who they are talking about. View their history to see how legitimate this allegation is. Because all I see is words like "we believe", "seen with", "thinks". Is this actually evidence or wishful thinking? It makes for good shock value if anything else. If you got something of hard evidence release it other wise its all insinuation and fluff. Of course at the end of the article they also name Antifa but it eludes the headline.

  14. Well, no, because we have video. The Dallas sniper was a member of BLM. He shot 5 cops. "Pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon" was a BLM chant, caught on video. We have arrests and now convictions of BLM members who set cities afire, killed business owners trying to protect their stuff. BLM's website, which BLM created, and BLM authored, is chalk full of racism, anti-semitism (what the hell did the Jews do?), and is marxist from beginning to end. And how many statues did they take down, all caught on video? Video is EVERYWHERE these days. In many cases, other BLM members a

  17. man, aint that the truth. When I bought my hill country property I cut down numerous giant chinaberry trees at least two feet in diameter. They are everywhere in the hill country esp near creeks and ponds. They are almost as bad as mountain cedars. Just cutting down those type of trees, I can see through my property and do something manageable. The chinaberry trees we cut down in the summer ALREADY have sprigs almost 5 feet high so I'm going to have to cut them again later. Other than constantly cutting, i dont know what the solution is. I saw one video where a guy cut one inch hol

  24. yeah, when I got stationed at Fort Hood 25 yrs ago ('95), the KDH had a far more robust staff. I've told people at KDH that I see at different social functions that I can get AP, Routers, Schiff (sp?) national news online and have told them this for 20 yrs that they should focus on original content such as local sports (including HS and local college/universities). UMHB wins football national championship 2 out of 3 yrs and they hardly covered it. Nebraska beats the Longhorns ONCE and it's a full page spread. I would buy the paper if it had more local content (local events, home&gard

  25. yeah, one of my neighbors bought some blue mountain laurels years ago and I grew mine from the seeds of his plants which are about 3 feet high now in pots. I love the blue-velvet-ish colors and fragrance. it's VERY hearty and survived with minimal watering. I literally put the laurels near the succulents and cactus plants in pots and the laurels did fine. speaking of succulents, do deer like succulents? I put some sedum plants I have in pots out in the hill country property and it looks like something ate them all the way down. They do that naturally then grow back but not normally

  26. I dont want to go off topic too much but I was wondering something. If I'm going to transplant my trees in pots and put them in ground at my hill country property, I need to do it now or wait till next fall - right? So, will it's not a grass growing question, it is a fall planting question. I have a couple of Lilac trees I have been growing in pots for a few years. Either I'm misunderstanding it or there is a difference of opinion about Lilacs. On one hand, people like them as decorative & fragrant trees. On the other hand, some things I've read state that even though they may be nativ

  27. That is interesting. Walnut shells and time gave him a nicely paved driveway. In the downtown Tyler area, there are bricked streets. Ever so often as you drive down them, you see spaces where the bricks are missing. This is because those streets were originally paved with Bois'de Arc bark. When they decided to brick the streets, they bricked right over the Bois 'De Arc bark. Later, after a summer afternoon shower, the bark would swell with pressure until it would occasionally blow straight up, dislodging and propelling the brick above it into the air. Like little geysers. lol

  28. wow... small world. The KDH is almost nothing now and virtually all AP, Routers, & other national news feeds. I quit getting it about 20 yrs ago and even then it was mostly to get the classifieds and sports; nothing I cant get online now. The sports writer was terrible back then and had to be from Big8 country. if a Texas school screwed up, it was on the front page. If something good happened to a Texas school, they MIGHT get a one paragraph lead on the front to page 2 or 3. However, if a former Big8 school did something or beat a Texas school, there would be a full or half page sectio

  29. good stuff. I did not know about the jug lone. I'm going to have to read up on that. I have a huge walnut tree near the same creek as the pic of the deer. It's so big that I cant put my arms around it. The jug lone probably explains why there is hardly anything but grasses and weeds growing around it. On a side note about texas black walnut, I was at a guy's property near Gatesville and I asked him what type of oil or tar did he put on his long driveway. it looked a strange darkish color. He said it's an oil but from black walnuts. Apparently, his family has own the property for abo

  30. This year the deer are quick to find anything succulent. Before this weekend's rain I had visitors every day, my septic sprays in my backyard and the grass is several inches tall. There is a set of 2-1/2 year old twin 8 pointers that dine regularly in my backyard. They don't even flinch when I come out and talk to them. The acorns are good until the first hard freeze. Then they sour and the deer go back to corn. This year the liveoaks are already dropping acorns while they're still green.

  31. 10-15 yrs ago, I got this hybrid bermuda supposedly developed by A&M and it is REAL nice. it doesnt seem to grow higher than about 3" and was made specifically for golf courses; almost maintenance free. I like it a lot. The only problem I'm having now is the growth aggressiveness . For years, it seemed to go slow but, now, if I dont mow for a while, I can have 2-3 foot stringers over and all along the cement driveway, sidewalk and out into the street. Over the years, instead of trimming the bermuda, I pulled the stringers out and put them in the back yard. Now, most of the back

  32. yeah, I might put out a feeder but I'd like to put off unnatural habits. I could gather acorns from around Killeen. Every business center/box store have tons of acorns that fill up the medians. The property has pecan, black walnut, as well as huge oak trees. I can look it up but I'm wondering if deer eat pecans or walnuts.

  35. Its a little more expensive on the front end, but its not nearly the water hog that St Augustine is. So you get that back pretty quickly. No, you don't want to mow Zoysia too short. Its like St Augustine that way. Its better off at about 3 inches. Hybrid Bermuda, Bermuda Tiff 419 you can cut short, low to the ground. This is the turf that was developed for golf course greens.

  36. Thanks for sharing this. I still don't like Lebron. I'm sick of his schtick. But what you shared just made me look at him in a different way. I've always thought those who find success should return to their home to help others less fortunate. Thats exactly what he did. Kudos to Lebron James.

  37. Don't overseed that St Augustine with winter rye. You may get away with it the first year, but the summer lawn gets worse each year you do it. If your neighbor asks why you don't have winter rye, just use the St Augustine excuse.

  42. 32 minutes ago, DBut82 said: Quick question: what's makes people feel they have to boycott the NFL/NBA etc.? I personally can't think of anything that would make me not watch a sport I love. But if you're boycotting the NFL/NBA now, why? I'll hang up and listen... Because we regularly see them on police blotters, most often for rape or sexual assault or domestic violence. And then they suddenly want to lecture their consumer base. If you don't see the ill-fated irony there, there's more.... It is BRAIN-DEAD marketing strategy to alienate your consumer base

  45. Native grasses are what deer eat when there isn't much else to eat. They are unable to digest most grasses very well (exception being the winter weeds, grasses). When it comes to deer, there are three categories of food that they will eat. They are listed by importance/significance. 1. Forbs – these are annual and perennial flowers, clovers and weeds. These plants offer the most protein to deer and are the deer's preferred diet. If they are available, this is what deer will eat. 2. Browse – deer will shift their diet to "browse" foliage, things like brushy shrubs, when Forbs are
