>>Hi Bill,
>>Saw your post with the photo of the branched scaped of 'Echigo No Yuki'
>>from Toyozo. It was very beautiful. I am happy to hear that Toyozo is
>>getting a computer and/or internet hook-up. That will make it very easy
>>to communicate with Toyozo. 
>>I have only one concern...he is NOT an agriculture specialist.If you
>>don't correct this with Robins, you may be setting him up for an
>>avalanche of communications about scientific subject matter from the US
>>which he will not be able to handle. He is retired from a job as an
>>engineer with  a petroleum company. His interests in hostas are largely
>>as a collector. He has young friends who do the actual collecting in the
>>wild. He usually collects by buying from Nurserymen who offer plants
>>propagated by divisions. There is no such thing as TCing hostas in Japan
>>yet.His growing area is a small space in his side yard (or front
>>yard...I am not sure)...on benches, under a shade protection structure
>>of some kind, I believe.I have seen photos of his hostas in this
>>structure but it is certainly not a large area.
>>According to Toyozo, hosta gardens as we know them do not exist in
>>Japan. Almost everything is grown in pots because of space limitations.
>>I realize that you are trying to build up Toyozo as a wonderful contact
>>in Japan. I agree that this will be a very positive thing and will
>>benefit Toyozo immensely if he can participate, but please caution
>>everyone to welcome him with sincere and very real expectations of what
>>level he will be able to communicate with the American group of Hosta
>>Fanciers.His use of English is somewhat lower than your description, I
>>think. My evaluation is based upon corresponding with him for about four
>>years and trying to speak with him by phone about six times. Everyone
>>needs to keep the syntax of English sentence structure very simple...no
>>slang, no colloqialisms, please. Learn to use the English language in a
>>simple, direct way that is meaningful and helful to the listener/reader.
>>I say all of this with a lifetime of working experience in several 
>>languages with people of other lands in THEIR and in OUR language. It
>>will make it so much easier for Toyozo if everyone understands the
>>difficulty of understanding English...one of the more difficult
>>languages in the world to learn to use. 
>>Bill, you may copy, paste and use these words if you plan to send a
>>supplementary message on Toyozo to Robins .
>>P.S......DAMN I HATE TO TRAVEL!!!!!!But glad to be back home. And I'm
>>glad Toyozo will soon be with us electronically. Thanks for telling us
>>about it.
========>> another image from Toyozo Nakayama comin next.  Thanks Jimbo, please be advised I stand corrected above :-B))
