Re: My new endeavor

Thanks everyone for your well wishes. My GRE is scheduled for May 7 so those
of you who have prayer chains please put me on it.
;-) I need ALL the help I can get. Donna, I hope your test went well. And
for those of you who say you wish you were young enough, I say WHO SAYS
YOU'RE TOO OLD!? Go for it!


but I found the distance ed center by putting online horticulture degree
into google. I was doing that periodically to see what came up. It was
always that one program in Canada, which I'm sure is a good program, but not
really a good choice for me living where I do.

Dr. Cynthia McKenney is the hort program director at TTU. We've been
emailing back and forth. She seems really nice (so far)

And I did mean to put italics around the "only" LOL! I emailed Dorie (my
former teacher) tonight and told her about the program.

I can't wait to get started.

thanks again all!
