Yes Betty............... a series like HYB
101: Branching; (or) red beards or how about white beards; (or)
faults; (or) genetics, etc......... (with some pictures if you have them) would
be a great series. It's always "cool" to start classes.

Is it cool enough to start winter classes, yet??
Could we do a series of these, like HYB:101:Branching, and HYB:101:Red
Beards, etc.? I think it would be great fun and something good to have
in the archives?
I'll start by passing on a couple of the things
I've learned over the past 18 years. I'm definitely NOT an expert, since I've
not studied genetics. My intention is to get the ball rolling. And I'm hoping
some of the REAL hybridizers will contribute to the threads. Questions
are allowed too!
1. This one is mandatory! Hybridizing
should be fun. Otherwise, it becomes work and people like grinning Bill
won't want to do it!
2. If your intention is to JUST have
fun? Go to it. Cross anything that strikes your fancy and enjoy
3. If your goal is to achieve (anything) spend the time
to do research. The current discussion about the online data base is what
prompted me to begin this thread. The data base can greatly shorten the
time it takes to do this research. (I've yet to apply most of this
myself . . . did I mention that I can't find my pass word?) What took me
several winters buried in books, catalogs and R & I's can be shortened to
a few busy days/nights with the data base.
