  Mike,  it's impossible to libel me, as long as you spell my name right, but
once again,  yer half right...it's the word "please," that's really key to
community garden culture, with them thank youze as in,

  "Hey buddy, madame could you lend this decrepit, graying community gardener
the temporary  the use of them gym muscles in moving this, here ol' rock,
please?" And then "thank you," accompanied by an adult beverage makes the two
words a team.

  Ya ask someone to do something that they don't have to do,  especially in a
volunteer community garden context ya say "please," and out of sheer surprise
that they actually did it, ya are really thankful - hence the "thank you,"

  Capise?

  Regards,
  Adam from Hell's Kitchen

  This reminds me that this week's Question of the Week on my Public Radio
show is about community gardens. Not sure how kosher attachments are in this
system, so if you want to read it (Adam from Hell's Kitchen is libeled in it;
that alone should be worth the price!) go to www.youbetyourgarden.org anytime
from late Friday on...
