Always something new for us, eh Bob.  I'll leave Twitter, Utube and the rest to my husband, since he always shows me the new stuff that's out there.
As I mentioned to Bob privately a while back, I got so bored this winter, that I created my own website.  I need to take lots more photos this spring and summer though, both for that and for the Iris Encyclopedia.  We just had another snow/blowing snow day here.  My friendly local farmer just finished ploughing the half mile driveway, again.

El: I see facebook as a different animal and I still like Iris-Talk and Iris-Photos although both seem to be being replaced by Facebook; Although each type of discussion group has its own strong points, I am beginning to get inundated with posts and keeping up with Facebook,Twitter,Cubits, The Iris Encyclopedia, is becoming overwhelming. As PR chair for AIS I feel a responsibility to do all these and You Tube, etc. but it is taking a toll. I have to admit my work on the Iris Encyclopedia has suffered because of the diffusion of efforts. Sometimes I think one more thing will make me Scream. By The way did I mention the BLOG.... ARGHHHHHHH! ----- Original Message -----

Morning all.
I still don't see Facebook as replacing the groups I already belong to.  It's another group, period, but very very active.  Also interesting that one of the Oscar nominated movies was "Social Network", about the guys who invented Facebook.
Thanks for the tips on a few more iris locations, Betty.

Hi Linda, El, and others, too!  .... whoever's left on Iris-Photos . . . 

The one thing about Facebook versus this List, is that pertinent photos of the season and seedlings might 
be missed from the general group, at least, I think so. Depending on your settings on FB, you'll only get 
notifications on your 'news feed' from people with whom you interact the most with. I just changed my 
settings so that I get everyone's info, but with over 360 friends, it's not possible to see what everyone 
posted that morning for 'news.'  


Facebook is great, for keeping in touch with my friends that I grew up with and people I meet along 
life's road, but I find this list separately valuable and like Linda said, an incredible resource in the 
archives for information!!

Talk about information overload! I do try to limit the amount of time I
spend with this machine, but really enjoy sharing excitement about this
and that with iris cyber friends (plus the usual "real" friends) and it
will be nice to have better/easier access to old and new iris friends
who aren't on this forum.

Things seem to have really slowed down in these two forums with so much
on Facebook and Iris Encyclopedia, but I do hope folks will continue to
share some things here as well. The archived messages on hortnet are an
incredible resource. Just last week, I dug through some posts by Neil
Mogensen re: genetics of Emma Cook pattern. Again. And hunted up some
seedling photos from various folks, searching for parents.

Anyway, Adam, it's like being sucked down a drain at first ;-) Thanks
to Barb ;-) & Facebook, I still have about 90 friend requests from
people I never heard of, not counting the ones I've accepted. & some of
them I probably never heard of either, thanks to fumble fingers ;-)

> Um, Adam, be careful, 'cause I was almost late picking up my husband while I was schmoozing my new "friends" on Facebook. Talk about time flying. :O
