Hey guys
 
I tried to send this off a couple of days ago but it came back as
undeliverable. As you can tell my computer savvy is just as acute as
always.

 
Anyway, I wanted to thank all of you for the warm welcome back. I see
that senses of humor have not changed and memories are long (candlestick
maker indeed). By the way, this candlestick maker is going back to
Sonoma State to finally finish my teaching credentials so I can get my
hands on your children and your children's children. I can't wait. I
have about a year to go.

 
My son is now in bootcamp for the Navy so we're experiencing a bit of
empty nest syndrome but we've started to break out and we're counting
all of the pennies we're now saving. It's amazing. In cereal alone I
think we're saving hundreds of dollars a month.

Subject: Re: Fw: [CHAT] Hey you early seed starters!

I have 3 heat mats but I rarely use them for seed starting because I use the 
APS units.  I do use them though for getting my dahlias and other tender 
bulbs a head start in the house and to stimulate late-starting perennials 
that we receive wholesale in the spring like Asclepias.
