    Morning Borg. That must be like living with a time-bomb.
    Afternoon kado.

    Well, yeah, that's an apt description. Like I said, what can I do? Trying not to worry, one day at a time & try to enjoy life. Too much worry is only going to make things worse with the stress it creates.

    Yep. That's what you need to do.

    BTW, English Ivy is REALLY hard to kill I'm finding out.

    Got some Ortho Ground Clear, normally this stuff is strong enough to wipe anything out, ever briar plants. Sprayed some on certain areas of the ivy last week. Took a look under the porch yesterday....it's still there....and sprouting new leaves.

    So put on a second dose & hope that does the trick. I've heard it was tough to kill, but didn't think it was that tough.

    BTW, VLC released an update on Fri for those of you using it. They did a bug patch.

    One of those high-severity bugs was fixed in VLC version 3.0.7, released on Friday by VLC developers. It contains fixes for 33 security issues, one of which is a high-severity flaw in an MPEG decoder software library used by VLC. The library is no longer maintained.
    Bug bounty drives VLC's biggest patch but attracts 'a-holes, scriptkiddies, scammers' | ZDNet

    I'm using an older version because the newer one doesn't seem to want to play hi def vids smoothly, at least not on my system. But I'll give this new version a try & see if maybe they fixed it. Of course my system is about 8 yrs old so that could be the problem also.

    Morning beeman

    Did you see that news article about a transport carry bees. I think they said 40 tons which a bee keeper calculated to be around 133 million bees.

    Afternoon Keith.
    There are 5K bees to the pound but there are NOT 40K pounds of bees on the truck as the boxes, honey and wax have some weight actually most of the weight. There could be about 500 bee hives on the truck with 100K bees per hive. That wreck was not bad as the load was still intact it gets real messy if the load is strewn all over the road. Cars covered with cluster of not happy bees.

    80K pounds is the max legal weight on the roads in the US and the truck will wight about 30K pounds the story is not even close to correct on the number of bees on the truck.

    The problem is the leaves are not very porous so the weedkiller is not absorbed very well.

    We had to get a tree service to come out for that crud. They notched the vines near the base and applied some nuclear toxin to the stem pulp. Taking a while, but it's slowly turning all of it brown and quite dead. Specific to English Ivy, doesn't kill anything else.
