Hi Betsy, 

   I was reading about that just last night as another option.  Thanks!

   The first thing I'm going to try is epsom salts.  Supposedly the 
   magnesium in the salts helps the peppers set blossoms as well!

   Thanks to everyone else for your tips!  I did have some wine and 
   went out yesterday with a Q-tip.  We'll see if there are any fruits
   for my labors!
