Lol. I just couldn't pass this up. It's a 2" slab 3'x7' and it has great veining, with a very unique formation right in the center...it looks like a galaxy. My wife actually found it while I was in another part of the quarry...she does have a great eye. It's a beautiful piece, and looks stunning as it is...and it's not even polished yet! I'll be doing that, and some kind of edge treatment. Our relocation plans have changed, and since we are staying the slab replaced the crete. Can't wait to get the footing in, this is going to be a masonry cabinet with a stone veneer.

No garlic, only because it's easy to get good stuff.

Try this for your deer problem....

String fishing line across entry points the deer use to your garden, and attach some tags along the line so you can see it. Painters tape works too. Then take dryer sheets and place them here and there. What happens is the smell of the sheets screws up their sense of smell, and when that happens they are really nervous. The fishing line freaks them out when the walk into it, because they can't see it.

These techniques worked wonders at our home in CT, were we had 4 acres backed up by hundreds of acres of forest. Never had deer trouble after that.
