most folks dont put much stock in the
studies promoted by the food industry. I
cant tell ya if eggs are good for ya or
not, but I can tell ya if they are cooked enough.
I suppose those study folks need somethin
to do, but ya gotta wonder if there is any real
value in it all.
The real scare now is the virus

Q: Heres a problem:
Ive got bald spots. Not on my head though,
the bald spots on my lawn! How do I get rid of
them? Also, there are patches of yellowed grass
in places. Whats the solution for that? --
Joey in Tennessee
A: Right now is a good time to
solve the "bald spot" problem (rather,
bare patches on your lawn). If you know what type
of grass your lawn is, head for the
home-improvement store and pick up a bag of the
same grass seed. If youre not sure what
type, look for an all-purpose grass seed or seed
mix. Pick up a little straw there, too, if you
dont have any extra at home.
On a day thats not too
windy, seed the bare patches as follows:
Clear away dead grass,
stones, sticks and leaves from the bare spots.
Use a thatch rake or a
pitchfork to puncture and loosen the soil, then
level out the soil (you may need to add some dirt
to level it).
Spread the grass seed
over each bare patch as the package directs.
Cover the area well, but dont overdo it, as
too much can lead to rotting.
Water the area slightly
and lightly tamp the seeds down, then scatter
straw over the bare patch.
Keep the soil damp over
the next couple of weeks and wave away birds that
will try to eat the seed.
Yellow spots are generally seen
in areas of the lawn that have too much nitrogen.
What could possibly give one spot more nitrogen
than another? One culprit: dog pee. If you want a
nice green lawn, dont let the dog go
wherever it wants -- walk Fido to a designated
"go" spot away from the grass.
particularly in the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic, is
a fungus called fusarium that flourishes in hot
weather. To prevent fungus, dont
over-fertilize your lawn, and de-thatch it every
fall. If you suspect fungus, treat the spots with
an appropriate fungicide (ask for it at garden
