Topic: DH Tradition Continues... (10 msgs / 262 lines)
1) From: Mike McGinness
I was the recipient of some very nice aromatic Earl Grey tea, Debi said so
I'm offering no Kona Greens, sorry, I'm short (yeah right;-). Obvious
reason: that would be in conflict with our list host Tom & Maria's business.
However, any of you wishing to 'grow your own' Kona house plants, I'm
offering a dozen Kona 'parchment' from Kona Mountain Estate for you to
attempt to germinate and grow. I've been told they should sprout if kept
moist and warm (in other words room temperature, not outdoors in Winter in
the Pacific Northwest!) for 1 to 3 months.
First to contact me they're yours for a $0.74 postage & bubble mailer!
(I might even send a dozen to the second person to contact me.)
(Maybe even the third, I brought back a good hand full:-)
(The fourth, you snooze you loose!)

ME, ME, ME!!!   :)

4) From: John Abbott
Oh Dan - take advantage of the NO daylight savings thingy to get a jump on
the rest of the list.  I was busy making breakfast for my beloved or I'd
have jumped all over this one!  Of course when everything freezes over up
there and you have those predictable power outages you will have killed off
these agricultural gems.  However, had they come south, to the incredible
TROPICAL ZONE (like in Hawaii) they would have thrived and grown and been a
constant source of joy for a retired couple who don't stand a chance of ever
getting to Hawaii.  Don't feel badly though Dan - feel rotten!!
John - looking at the blank spot where the seedlings would have enjoyed life
in the winter

5) From: Dan Bollinger
Actually, my wife raises orchids and has a greenhouse!  So I figure I'll
have some nice Kona coffee tree starts for when our retired couple moves to
Hawaii!  :)   (how's that for spinning guilt into virtue!?)  Dan
PS:  Hoosier are fair, we see no reason to bother our clocks twice a year.

7) From: John Abbott
Oh I did!  I just had to try to make my favorite Hoosier feel bad - but
obviously he's lived there too long and after years of freezing and thawing,
his hide has become pretty tough :O)  When I lived in the same neighborhood
I remember discovering that "Spring Cleaning" meant getting the flood damage
out of your yard.  I'll just get down river and wait for those trees.
John - looking forward to a high of 73 today - should be cool enough to get
the car washed and waxed.

8) From: Mike McGinness
