I think anyone over 40 has some memory issues. I always heard if you forget where your keys are it's OK, if you forget what your keys are for, oh, oh. But it's this day and age, so much going on in our heads.

I will probably leave DG when my subscription expires in June. Hate to leave so many really nice people but we could use a lot more members here.

Hi all,
I agree with Sally. Nice to read the banter. Helps to put things in perspective.

Here's a sketch and a vignette of a painting in progress my mother did of "our" NOID iris, finished a few years ago.

Can you recommend a book or other resource which gets into some of the tech terminology used here? I've a good basic understanding of botany and NOID I picked up from one of the threads here, but other ABBREVIATIONS are --woosh-- right over my head!

Jerry, I left DG back in early Feb. when my subscription ran out, and I can honestly say that I do not miss it! I thought I would, but I absolutely do not. There seems to be much more going on here in terms of communicating with one another than over at their iris forum, plus I can think of at least three people who have appeared over here since I I deleted DG from my life. I'm sure they are doing both, but for me it's been a totally satisfactory move to just Cubits. Plus I'm no longer glued to the computer like I was -- altho that probably has something to do with the nicer weather too. If you post that it's about to be your last day there and you'll permanently be over here (I said "at the other channel"), maybe one or two more will investigate Cubits too! It's a slow but steady progression over here, I think. I can still receive D-Mail without the subscription, and a few people did D-Mail me to find out what "the other channel" was, and they are now posting over here too. So the future looks very bright for us over here!

Evan, your sketch and vignette are really fabulous! And did you say there is a painting in progress? Maybe you can post a picture of it at some point. Your mom is quite an artist! And is she doing the painting, or are you?

Dee,
Thanks for the site reference. Very helpful. Found some add'l. info. at Median Iris Soc. site glossary. I'm sure it will eventually sink in.

Betty,
Thanks for the kind words. My mothers the artist in the family. Can't remember the time when she didn't have something in the works.

Evan, the terminology will sink in. You just have to talk it for awhile. I was totally baffled at first. Love those drawings. Can't wait to see the finished painting.

I like the banter, too. And one thing I really like is that many of the new people here jump right in. When Dee and I developed the site we decided we wanted information, talk and fun, not just a cut and dry informative site. Enough of those out there already

Glad you like it here. We now have 273 members. last spring we hit 100. So, I think as spring progresses we will get much busier. .

I also let my DG lapse in February. I was surprised when someone offered to pay for another year for me, but I declined, I'm happier here.

Lovely sketch and a vignette Evan, your Mom had real talent. Thumbs up

Once my membership is up at DG I am not renewing as if people want me they can come here or easily find me via the webpage.

This does NOT have all the darn rules...plus the lectures and mistreatment of many.

If there are errors in the database for bearded iris contact me, if beardless contact Polly both of us are working hard at keeping this correct. I will contact the person who I believe in my knowledge and opinion to be incorrect so they can look again and tell us.

I know when I was recovering from my last surgery they said I used curse words and I did not as I write my postings on there in word for me to reveiw as I know they watch me closely because I voiced my opinion to them about how they were doing the co ops after a few really bad ones, and told them that they should go after the vendor and not review board and they even told me that if I wanted someone to do a co op after being asked I would have to open the entire webpage up for sale at the same price. RIGHT who would do that.

Well for everyone who has found their way here, welcome and we are both happy to have you.

Dee wrote above: "Well for everyone who has found their way here, welcome and we are both happy to have you." I'm one of the DG cast-offs, and I feel right at home here enjoying all the posts and info. I don't feel like I missed a thing over there. Besides, a lot of you are already over here. I'm happy!

Dee, so "they" (DG) insisted if you had a co-op that you would HAVE to have your entire stock available rather than what you wanted to limit it to? That's crazy.

Having friends on both sites, I use both. However people who come to DG for iris advice will miss out on it, if everyone quits.

Yes Greg, they told me I could NOT supply a list of the iris I could afford the let go at co op prices which were usually 2.00 or 3.00 each and shipped direct from me (values from 3 to 18.00) they wanted the entire site opened up for that price.

Now can you image ANY grower doing that!
