"Yes, that is an articulate article, Henry. Good find.. I am under the distinct impression that some regular commentors on this site are distinctly anti-native plant, I am surprised they have  not chimed in."

Henry,

I thought I'd let you chime in if it suited you.

You know, I JUST found your comment Henry! I saw I had a comment, but could NOT find it!!

 I will always be a luddite..And because of that I like yellow trace - Hanna/Olin did gorgeous renderings on yellow trace with Burnt Umber prismas..Beige is a little shiny usually.

what kind of trace are you?

: )

Henry, I would say that my first couple of weeks of transitioning to the mac OS was a little like a fish out of water...but that didn't last long. I quickly grew fond of the experience. Graphics certainly are faster and better...the biggest reason why we use Macs for demonstrations and presentations and such. I use Safari and Firefox for my browsers. Every once in a while I run into a situation where the site I use might say they run best on IE, but that is very few and far between. Side topic...the photos on your page of the drastic driveway slopes are a bit thought provoking...if you don't mind my asking, what is the story there?

Yeah, the places to be a football fan this year is Buffalo and Detroit. The best thing is the excitement of seeing a team turn around from being really bad for so long. The beauty is that the expectations are low, so when they do get knocked out they'll say "wow, what a great season". Contrast that to high expectations like Phillies/Red Sox or Eagles/Patriots and when they get knocked off it makes you ill. I remember the excitement of the Patriots first Superbowl appearance in '85 and their first win in '01. Now it is an expectation. It takes the fun out of it to some degree.

Well that is very close by, I'm pretty sure kirshner's is still in business.  I drive past them everyday, probably only 5 minutes drive from where i live

you are right, I now mostly work on residential and cultural projects.  Years ago I did a lot of work for developers on large scale golf communities and repairing the engineered grading and drainage solutions was a big part of what i spent my time on.

Hello Henry,

I joined this site because I thought the discussions were interesting and curious to me. I just looked at your photos and the houses with the steep driveways gave me an idea for another blog called "all engineers must die" it seems most of my work as a landscape architect has been mitigating work done by engineering criteria.
