This is an old thread; but then, I am an old gardener - and an old member.  I want to express my thanks and kudos to Janet, and especially to Steve, for their clever behind-the-scenes cyber-manipulations getting me back into my account.  They accomplished this feat in spite of:


- A forgotten password (I never forget passwords and I have a password keeper!  I must have known (or thought I knew) this one so thoroughly that I never wrote it down!)


- And a new email address! (So I couldn't use the "I forgot my password." feature.)  THAT is amazing!


As a result, I didn't have to re-register as "Corky2.0"!


Thank you Steve and Janet for service to members above and beyond the call of duty!  :wub:

It's not what you gather, but what you scatter,
that tells what kind of life you have lived.

You are so welcome. This was another case, maybe the 5,000th time, that we learned a lot because someone asked.


When I was first asked to write for the Detroit News (don't look for me there now; I ended a 13 year run in 2006) I was working two jobs, my kids were just turning teen and my first thought was, "Naw, sorry, I do not have time." But pretty quickly, I reconsidered. "Wait a minute. We've been so busy lately we haven't been attending Extension gardening classes and such nearly like we used to. If I make it a Q&A column I'll be forced to study up and learn something new every week..." And that's exactly what happened.


Now it keeps on happening here, in our every day Q&A. Sometimes we don't want to learn -- finding our way around the backside of computer programs? Ugh! Looking into yet another new invasive exotic insect or fungus, bleh! -- but we do it anyway because our friends ask us, and we do in the end always feel good about it.


So ask away. We love a challenge.
