Lets put some faces to names.

rmbill(6a)December 25, 2011

I have been chatting here for 2 or 3 years and I only know what a very few people look like. I would really like to be chatting with a person instead of a chat name. Call me weird, I guess. This is me, for better or worse. I hope others will share. Happy New Year everybody.

Kathy, You posted are the same time as I just did. Thanks so much for the picture. This will be great if it keeps up.
I am going to send to Thailand for assorted Plumeria seeds. I will share with you if you want to try growing them from seed. I read that you can get blossoms the first year sometimes.

Nice to see some happy faces! I've often wondered what everyone looks like too! Bill- I'd love to receive some seed if you can spare them- that would be awesome! I started a Desert Rose from seed, and had a few plumie seeds somewhere, but a little mouse got into my seed box and ate them! I guess he knew what was primo! By the way, everyone here is like family- it's my favorite forum any where! Hope to see some more faces to those familiar names!

Kathy, The site says it takes 7-21 days for delivery. I'll send some when I get them. I am thinking about getting mixed Desert Rose seeds also. They are cheaper but still pretty.

Great to connect some faces with names! I tried searching for the one we had a few years ago when we all posted our pictures, but couldn't locate it.

I will post a picture once I find one. I am usually the one taking pictures so don't have some recent ones of myself.

It's always interesting to see if the face is what you've pictured in your mind. We haven't had a "face to the name" post here in a long time. I'll have to remember to have someone snap a pic of me while we're down here. I'm almost always the one taking the pics and am not in them.

I don't post here often but I find myself following the chatter. Being from Canada I feel a bit isolated when it comes to all the great trading of cuttings etc. that you people are able to do.I thought that I would include a picture for reference anyway and as you can see I have one of my garden helpers with me.

Thanks Pat. You California girls always look so California-y. Tanned and fresh looking. Nice.
I sent cuttings to some one in California and the Cal. Dept. of Agriculture called me and then sent me a letter stating that when I send this stuff there, that I should put on the package what it is and that they can open it for inspection. They said that the drug sniffing dogs found them at the Post Office. They did deliver them though.

Pat, did you delete the first picture from photobucket or whatever you use? If so, it will remove it from here.

Karyn, I too thought your hair was a bit shorter than that. More shoulder length and sort of page boy. You are beautiful regardless of hair length :-)

Bill, I haven't tried to figure out how to set the timer on my camera. I usually just put it on auto and shoot, LOL!

Thanks Jo! We are a fortunate bunch to be able to play in dirt :-)

Kylie, I recall seeing that clip of you, Lucy and Kristy. It was hilarious with all three waiting on John to take the picture only to realize he was recording it!

Eloise you know what was wrong with the pic of Kylie, Kristy and Lucy? We weren't there! They looked like they were having a great time.

My hair has never been shoulder length. This is about as short as it's ever been but it was layered/angled so it probably looked shorter.

I have no idea how to use auto shoot or set the timer on any of my cameras. Might help if I would read a users manuel. lol

This is great. I am loving it. Even better than I had hoped for. It is so nice to see all of the smiling faces and have an idea who I am chatting with. I wonder if the other chats get along like this one seems to? There have been a couple of testy times but, all in all, everybody seems to enjoy each other. I have lurked at a couple of other sites that, at times, got really evil. Not fun.

Bill the plumeria forum is very friendly as well, but other then these two I haven't found any of the others that are. I've seen it get downright nasty on a few of the other GW forums. I don't post on any of the other gardening sites but belong to a couple of the Facebook groups which are very friendly.

Huneybunch, go to tinypic.com, upload a photo that you have stored on your hard drive, copy the FIRST html code, come back here, go to the message box, PASTE what you just copied and hit preview - your picture SHOULD appear. If it doesn't, just try again - sometimes the code doesn't copy, so just keep trying until it works.
