Re: Plumeria and stuff

Andrea, Ditto on the diabetes, but thankfully it is treatable. Not sure
what a southbeach diet is, but if it will make you feel better, great!

Zem, my brug's are about to bloom any day.... I am so excited! Hope this
crazy weather doesn't make them drop or something! I planted some in the
ground and they are doing much better than those I left in a pot.

Sorry about the diabetes, Andrea.  The upside is that you will love the 
Southbeach diet because it's not like a diet at all and is really easy to 
work into your life.  There is also a companion cookbook, but you can easily 
adapt all your favorite recipes.  I'm glad you mentioned the Plumeria 
because all my cuttings have rooted as well, including one branch that was 
broken off by marauding possums.  Nothing, however is blooming.  All the 
Brug cuttings I got from Marge are just huge, and I'm waiting for them to 
bloom as well.  You have really been busy, but I know you are enjoying your 
new home.  Now, just think, you will soon be enjoying your new figure and 
all the new clothes you'll be forced to buy. :o)
