2009-06-29 19:34:23   Where can I pick my own fruits? Not looking to pick wild fruits at the arboretum and such. I'm looking towards farms and local places that allows customers to pick their own fruit and weigh them for a price. Any fruits, especially berries (cherries, strawberries, blueberries, etc) would be great. I have tried looking on yelp and daviswiki but only found one place thus far. Any locals know of a good place?

Please name address and/or directions. *Note: I have a car so I'm definitely willing to drive withing 30 mile radius of Davis (ie Dixon, Winters, Sac, etc) —KimN.

2009-08-26 19:05:55   Question about a house that was demolished about three years ago. I used to live in an old ranch style house on West Covell. It was across Covell from what is now the Retirement Center. And it was across from Sutter Davis Hospital as well, west of the hospital. I've been directed to ask the city for records and such, but this seems like an interesting shot in the meantime. Does anyone know anything about the history of this house? It was 39664 West Covell, and it's now just a field. Some guy was growing sugar cane out there in the back forty a couple of years ago. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, AirporterDriverPete —AirporterDriverPete

2009-09-13 00:39:08   Can I dye fabric (100% cotton, or a polyester blend) from a dark color to a lighter one and vise-versa? Also, could a dark color, such as black, be dyed into another dark color, such as dark green? Or a light color into an other color that is dark, like olive into dark green? —Rogue2

Is it MANDATORY to register my bike (e.g. pay the $10? fee)? Thoughts/ideas? Thanks in advance! —H4rry

technically, it is not 'mandatory' and TAPS is not really going to do anything unless you park it in a really bad place. however, if your bike is stolen, it could help

2010-03-07 10:51:13   It's [WWW]very easy to find the links. That's why I tried those "test edits" - I undid the wikilink but replaced it with an external link, and I also seem to have accidentally typo'd his name to prevent a search for it. With only 7 or so links left to him, I didntt expect him to be fooled, but I thought it was worth a try. —EdWins

2010-08-06 14:18:24   First,What are the small burrowing mammals that live in the research agricultural fields along Russell Blvd? They don't look like gophers but perhaps like a cross between a squirrel and a gopher. Are they chipmunks?

Second, I think your questions and answer page should be promoted! Make it a link on the DavisWiki front page. I think it should be like the Yahoo Answers page, but for Davis of course. Invite local experts to weigh in to answer questions, if necessary. Allow build in a tool to allow questions to be categorized. —AnnieSirrah

2011-02-14 13:38:06   Where is an appropriate place to post a message in hopes that the asshole who committed a hit-and-run around 10:55 a.m. today outside the ARC will see it? I'm so angry I would love to post something nasty in huge letters at the top of the front page, but I don't want to wear out my welcome here... —MeggoWaffle

2014-02-15 16:40:16   Katelynn113, I've moved your question about your toddler's teeth over to Dental Questions so it can be seen by people with actual dental experience. I think it's going to be lost over here. Did this happen at a dentist in Davis? —JudithTruman

2014-05-11 20:15:16   About 3 years ago, I had intermittent pain & sensitivity to hot/cold on #30 tooth. X-rays showed nothing, but dentist determined it could be a cracked tooth, even though a crack could not be seen, and suggested a crown. The crown was placed, and I have still always had had the intermittent pain, more like an ache since then. The only thing it alleviated was the hot/cold sensitivity. So I have just lived with the occasional ache/pain which would happen when chewing on that side, and taking ibuprofen when needed. About six weeks ago, during a routine cleaning, I happened to mention it since it had just been acting up, (this is not the same dentist who did the original crown) and an x-ray was taken of the gum area, and there was an abscess. The dentist suggested I see an endodontist who would determine whether a root canal could be done or, if the crack was too deep, if extraction was necessary. One week later, the endodontist did a root canal, so I assumed he had determined the tooth was savable. About 7 to 10 days after that, the tooth was "achy" and I had the funny taste in my mouth and my jaw was still a bit swollen. "Just to be safe", he prescribed 500mg of Amoxcil for 9 days. It's been 10 days since I finished. Three days ago, the tooth again became sensitive when I brush my teeth. I shouldn't be feeling anything on that tooth, right? Also, these last couple days, I have that funny taste in my mouth, and I'm quite sure the infection is still there and getting worse. I'm scheduled to go back to my dentist on Thursday to have the permanent crown/filling done, but I am going to see if I can get in tomorrow due to the suspected infection. I'm afraid he's going to suggest a re-do on the root canal, or an apecitomy (sp?). Would another round of antibiotics fix the problem? If not, I'd rather have the tooth pulled, since the more I read about cracked teeth and root canals, there are no guarantees. If I do get the tooth pulled, that should cure the infection, right? After 3 years of constantly be aware of this tooth, I'd like to just get rid of it. I'm 62 and have had the "same" tooth missing on the other side for 30+ years and have not missed it. And as others have said, thank you so much for the information you share with everyone. I have learned so much from reading all the posts here this evening. —SueDen
