Re: semps

Ben or anyone on the list,
        Hi, I have been lurking for quite a while. I have enjoyed all of the
information and the games, too.
        I, too, saw the show on HGTV last Saturday on Ed Skrocki and his
semps. I have tried to find out if he sells plants mail order or through any
mail order nurseries, but cannot find any information on him. I tried
www.google.com and found references to his plants, but nothing on him. I
tried www.qwestdex.com (our local phone company online directory) and put in
his name, city and state and found nothing. I think the show was a couple of
years old. Is he still alive? Is he still active in the semp community?  I
would really like to buy some of his plants. (especially the orange one! If
he has any available) Any help would be greatly appreciated.
