apparently like any other organization, be it religeous, political, accademeic, cultural , agriclultural , & what ever other .orgs there are, some always contain a some rotten seeds.When I went to high school , there was young man that was a year ahead of me. Some how he let it out what had happen to him at school. I am not going to go into the details but he realized what a mistake he'd made telling . After that I never saw him again, his brother showed up a few days latter distraught , I never did find out exactly what happened to him ( i heard various stories , none were good) . I was and still am glad that I was not in that organization.
While I am sure that a good many of the 95,000 are probably frivolous , I am sure that quite a few more never saw the light of day.
That happens when people start takings to seriously , and things descend into a serious discussion. My quip was simple suggestion that the $125 might be a bargain compared to being marred for life. It wasn't intended as a conversation starter.this whole forum seems to have been decreasing in informative & good vibes recently.
Utah is a dry climate so the trees tend to dry out quickly if not cared for. Especially the commercial, normal mass cut and sold trees trucked up from WA and other "wet" states. We've been buying our trees for a long time by a guy who cuts his own trees here in Utah -- trees that are grew up and are used to the dry air -- and they usually do much better and last longer than the typical commercial trees. But this is the first time I've had one that looks almost as good now in April as it did in December when we bought it. Even from this guy. They usually last in the house better than most but usually by the second week of January when we finally get around to taking it out it has started to shed needles and dry out. My trees usually end up in the green bin until Spring And we've had a lot of warm days (alternating with really cold days) this Spring.Chadbag: That Christmas Tree being in the cool outside environment with some water helped to keep it green. It was also likely that the tree was to have been cut shortly before your purchased the tree, unlike here in Wisconsin the trees are cut in early November. Is it a Fir, which will last the longest of all evergreens after being cut.
Poor little thing has staying power sho ev it in a pot and water it, often sellers boil the roots so they cannot be re usedAlmost 2:30pm and 52F and seems to be sunny (from my basement office looking out the window well). It was 28F when I got up at 6:30am.
The following picture shows our Christmas tree, which has been sitting in our green waste bin since January. The needles are stillsoft, there are hardly any needles spread around the bin. It is amazing. The lid of the bin is partially open so maybe some water has gathered in the bin providing the tree with some water but otherwise it has just been sitting there since January waiting for green bin pick up to resume (we missed the tree pickup after Christmas since we keep it up until Epiphany).

I hadn't heard that version, but very well done. I was surprised the local station played it (as a tribute to friend of the DJ), as it isn't on their usual play list. I wish they'd do more obscure songs than they do. Many very good rock songs that aren't the top 15 rock bands of the 70's, 80's and 90's.I like the Gary Barlow rendition:
