In the midst of a very busy week, I was sitting in my office when my phone rang. On the other end was a friend who shared some difficult news with me. His grandfather, a man who was so important in raising him, died the night before.

The pantry is empty and the refrigerator is bare. You know what time it is...time to shop for groceries. As you drive to your favorite grocery store, you already know the actions you are going take. You will enter the store, grab a buggy, and browse aisles upon aisles of products. After your cart is full and all items are checked off your list, you will head for the front to pay, hoping of course, to find the shortest and fastest checkout.

As a general rule, the longer they have been established, the more difficult it will be to control. Both are clumpy, low growing, spreading type grass weeds with seed heads that grow on spikes.
