Oh dear me, then we couldn't discuss CCRIS, or in the vernacular...
W Syndrome. This adds legitimacy to what has been so roundly denounced
Also looks like, in guy language, the old
whose-pecker-is-bigger-contest. "BG, I been round here ten years, that
makes my thingie, and thusly, my post, the biggest and weightiest."
Such is life.
Hope your move went well and life is going well.
Yeah, one must ALWAYS put great weight (weight goes with size, of course)
on length <hee hee... I said "length"> of residency in any given
newsgroup. Nevermind those naysayers who will say length <hee> of
residency is proof of a life wasted. They're just jellus.
Well, I'm back home at least. Hopefully I'll have a garden next year,
too. Thanks for asking. There're no Master Gardeners in this county,
though. They've been decimated by funding cuts apparently. :(
I'm not sure who you are referring to Ingrid. Ann is clever and knows
lots of stuff but she isn't very smart. The other one is just is a
narcissist who needs to be stroked. I'm here for gardening. If this is a
popularity contest, I'm not playing. If readers of this NG are offended
by my observation that Bush, and his administration, are fascist
bastards they should killfile me and go back to watching Fox News.
So what worked in your garden this year and what didn't?
The point is this...... DONT MAKE PERSONAL ATTACKS ON ANYONE. This group has
around a long time, we are like a "neighborhood" in that we care about the
welfare of each person. For some people gardening is a major part of their
major part of their physical and mental health, it certainly was for my mother.
everyone is as fortunate as my mother to live in one place for 60 years and pass
plants to nearly everyone in the "hood", gradually acquire life long gardening
friends. This newsgroup is that equivalent. And like all groups of friends (and
relatives) it takes a lot of tolerance and patience to get along over the long
Because most of the long timers, the backbone of this group are women, this group
reflects more the way women relate which includes discussing a lot of other
and that is what bonds us together. Gardening questions ARE answered right
unlike a group sitting around in this format we can carry on multiple
And anybody doesnt want to discuss something has the ability to delete it, just
"listen". Anyone finds it distressing to be in a forum where topics other than
gardening are being discussed needs to find a strictly moderated forum then.
While I may agree with you about Bush, I do not agree with personal attacks. And
typically, the way groups of people deal with those who arent going to "play
to "shun" them, the equivalent of the killfile. This is exactly what happened
mothers neighborhood when the woman who moved in next door decided to make my
life miserable and the hood found out about it. The nasty women next door was
shunned by the hood, and the women in the hood rallied around my mother to
I'm here for gardening. If this is a
thank you Ingrid. I don't sweat the stuff. I know who I am and I
know my character. I don't need approval from people who read a few
posts and make a decision on who they think I am.
