LOL that he has a great A-hed in today's WSJ about extreme lawn care. Can't say my grass looks that good since I'm not as OCD about lawn care
nor have I ever won "Lawn of the Month" from the HOA ... who actually has sent me letters in the past about it looking not-so-green ... D'OH! ;-)
Yesterday's rain and cooler temps did help as you can see the difference from 2 days earlier when I mowed it.

So I've been testing some new webcams - see post #16,489 and
some initial comparisions here.
I have been using a Vivotek FD8362 camera for over 7 years ... and after downloading an image every 2 seconds, that's over a 100,000,000 pictures of my front lawn! It's still going strong, but technology has advanced with improved image quality & resolution plus much better low-light performance. Darren from Vivotek stopped by yesterday and I'm excited to test their latest technology next week - stay tuned WGG Fans for better pictures of the grass! ;-)
Not surprisingly, he uses Vivotek cameras at his personal house ... and he showed me a picture from last week of someone trying to break into his truck late at night - check out the quality of that low-light image! With motion detection, it alerted him and the perp ran when Darren came out of the house. I suggested to Darren that he a post a sign saying "homeowner works at a video surveillance company! ;-)
