A very hearty welcome to the list, Ruth!  It is always a pleasure to be
able to connect a name with ... (keystrokes?).  I have had the benefit of
your very efficient service as HIPS publication director when I completed
my set of ROOTS ( a treasure!) and purchased some chronicles.  Thank you
very much!

800 cultivars... WOW!  And I won't inquire further about cats...I
understand how these things happen.  :-)   

Again, welcome, and enjoy the list!

Newfield, NY  (where we are SERIOUSLY snowbound, and where the wind has
been such that all my shoveling needs to be redone today.
:-(      Bah --I'm getting too old for this.)
