Re: Intro- Mariana...soils

Kitty - was a History major in college, but a teaching assistant in the Physics Department.  In retrospect I'd probably be better off financially if I'd done it the other way around, but that's water under the bridge.  My areas of expertise were astronomy and meterology.  Actually somewhat useful to a gardener as fate would have it!  Pretty funny IMO....
