I am a lover of horticulture, gardening and the environment. At age 8, I sent away for a package of Zinnia seeds for 10 cents and I've been hooked ever since. After 25 years of being self-employed, I retired. That only lasted 4 years and I now work in a water conservation program: I buy grass from homeowners who are willing to convert to desert landscaping and lose that thirsty green stuff. I pursue what interests me and you can blame my sister for getting me into this blogging thing.

I'm out of commission

Here are some pots that I have under my mesquite tree. They have filtered light and do quite nicely. Most of the plants are succulents.

Due to husband error, my modem has been fried. At least I can't figure out how to reconfigure it. I was having some work done at the house and the ground fault interrupter was tripped. So my husband went and flipped all the switches in the breaker box instead of resetting the ground fault. Unfortunately, my computer was on. It hasn't been the same. After 5 days of calling computer expert friends and trying to diagnose my problem, I finally broke down and ordered high speed DSL. It's only taken me 5 years to make that decision. No one can believe I still had dial-up. It's really frustrating that I don't even have that at the moment.

So dear blog friends, on Saturday, my home computer will have a new modem installed and I'll be back in business. I will be happy to be back in blogland at home. It's a little hard to catch up with everyone while I'm supposed to be working. So until Sunday, ciao.

Well, it's about time you got DSL. I've only been telling you for . . . Just kidding, sister. I know what you have been going through.

Can't wait for you to get your system up and running. Then you will have to find something else to "fix."

Love ya.

Your flower pots of succulents look great and at first I thought you were going to say that your plants were fried. Sorry to hear about your computer, but thank God it was only your modem...and what an excuse to get DSL! *VBS*
You'll love it. It will make blogging so much faster.
