  • MEXICAN GUAVAS, NO LONGER BANNED, BRING HOLIDAY JOY  By : samjack
    It’s a small thing, but it’s bringing lots of joy to Houston’s Hispanic immigrants this holiday season.
    Banned for years from the U.S. because it is a common carrier of the fruit fly, the Mexican guava is now being sold in Texas.
    The U.S. government lifted the ban in October after an agreement to irradiate the fruit was reached. The irradiation rids the guavas of any fruit flies.
    The first shipments of the fruit began arriving in TexaMexicans last month, just in time for holiday celebrations.

  • Zoysia grass works well in light shade  By : samjack
    DALLAS — Zoysia grass, introduced into the United States from China in 1895, grows well in lightly shaded areas. It’s fairly drought-tolerant, similar to Bermuda. And it handles wear and tear. It needs half the fertilizer of Bermuda, and its cold tolerance is very good. When properly taken care of, it makes a beautiful lawn.

    “If you want something that grows in shade, is drought- and wear-tolerant, zoysia will come the closest,” says Dr. Jim McAfee, Texas AgriLife Extension Service turfgrass sp

    SAN DIEGO — For all the greatness Tiger Woods has shown over the years, this he was not supposed to be able to do.

    Two months after undergoing knee surgery, Woods’ rehab had not reached the point where he could practice. Or bend over to read a putt. Or walk the length of a golf course.

    Or even play a round of golf, let alone a competitive round of golf in the tense, challenging environment of a major championship.

    On this gorgeous weekend, Tiger Woods was not supposed to be Tiger Woods.
