I was taught to look for my part in a situation. Which leads me to pointing
out others part. Which in turn leads to personal pronouns which offends
many. I'll try to look at my part.
I do want to provoke thought in how the process works and in this case I
think that it leads to putting something down which leads to a negative
result. Or, it accomplishes no more than talking about what you do like.

A new plant comes out and enjoys some interest. Usually it commands a
higher price when its new and UNTESTED. Someone must buy it and the process

That was not a known flaw that Beth was talking about it was a disease she
believes came from the source. The fungal problem is everywhere and is
probably in all of our gardens. Then it wasn't worth the money and does
anyone have his number which I judged as women bitchy. Which provoked my

So, Lu if you got this far I did not express myself as well as I might have
(which is my part) and I've tried to explain further. In my view more
explanation leads to more misunderstanding.
