THE PATH OF DEATH: No, nothing to do with the war -- I just want to sing the praises of Roundup. I'm always loathe to use poisons, since I like to sit on the grass and my kids play on the grass and eat the grass, and besides I'm a compulsive weed puller, so I might as well put my neurosis to good use. We have a brick front walk that is always covered in weeds no matter how frequently I pull them out though. So, I finally gave up and sprayed it with Roundup and everything was dead within 24 hours. What a wonderful sight. Now I just hope it lasts for a while, so that I can get back to yanking the violets and dandelions out of the yard, which is much more pleasant than constantly pulling them from between bricks.
