    ...it's almost like I'm a full time student or something, oh yeah, I am. LOL!

    Sorry for not being around, it's been crazy this semester. Anyhow, I see we have a forum upgrade, nice. How has everyone been? I have plant news to blab on again.

    Flytraps:
    Stupid fungicide making all the leaves from the spray time grow in all funky and mutated. Oh well, their ugly but alive... except "Green", well, it's still alive, barely. I don't know what to do with this pathetic thing. It's been over a year since it went into shock (directly after purchase) and it's STILL getting worse (if that is even possible). I honestly don't know how the thing survived long enough for the store to sell it. Anyhow, if I actually get it through this episode of near death it's going up for free adoption to someone in a more southern climate because I'm out of other ideas on how to make the stupid thing happy. :P

    Neps:
    Weeeee, I almost killed one because a clear plastic thingy got stuck to the bottom and it didn't get water for two weeks. LOL, I was like "What's wrong, I don't get it, why is it acting dehydrated when I keep watering it?" ROFL, it's okay, it bounced back with a vengeance and so I can laugh about being a dork.

    YAH! Just under 1 year old (cutting) and "Little Gulp" my ventricosa has created it's first new basil shoot, YAH! I'm so happy I could pop. Also, it's started growing like gangbusters (made new shoot and doubled size of original shoot in just two months). I couldn't figure out what it was for a while, but I checked the soil the other day (after a symbiant lecture in ecology actually) and it turns out it picked up a fungi. Seeing as the growth has sky rocketed and it correlates very well to the fungi's appearance, I'm thinking it's a safe bet that my baby actually picked up a symbiant

    Northern Pitchers:
    Ahhh, go dormant dang it! They seem a little stubborn about it so it looks like I won't get them all in the cellar before January :P Oh well, at least they are growing.... My baby has over 20 tiny baby pictures not bad for a spring seedling!

    Butterwort:
    The eternally dormant one. O_O it never changes, it's exactly the same EVERY SINGLE DAY! It hasn't even lost old leaves or grown new ones. It just sits there, dormant, AND IT'S BEEN LIKE THAT SINCE I GOT IT LAST SPRING, AHHHHHHHH!... sorry, I want a sticky plant again, and a flower.

    Sundews:
    Oh yeah, I killed them all being stupid last summer, never mind (yes, I still hate myself for that)

    So yeah, thatís it really, for my plants anyhow



    There is no item greater in value than life, for without life value would cease to exist.

    Settle down Scotty, that's your opinion, a lot of other people have opinions too.

    Without meaning to offend Darcie I often stop half way through her posts as I just get tired of trying to decipher exactly what it is she's trying to say. I was very pleasantly surprised at this post, and then I saw at the bottom that UC had edited it and I guessed that she fixed up the spelling mistakes.

    If Darcie takes offence at this then that's her choice and I have no problem either way but if I were her I would learn from it rather than get annoyed.

    Cheers, Troy.

    Unknown clown,
    fixing all those spelling errors is NOT doing anyone a favor!
    "Protecting" people from the "big-bad world" is doing them a disservice..
    In 4 years college students will be looking for a job.
    Don't you think it would be a GOOD idea for them to be aware that they should know how to spell?
    Would a future employer be impressed by that writing style?
    I don't think so..writing that poorly can HURT someone's life!
    Education is the key to a good life, a good job, better pay, more education, even attracting a future spouse!
    Protecting people from their own ignorance is hurting them.
    My post was much more beneficial than your editing and censorship.
    You have denied Darcy of something she really needed to know!
    What I pointed out is very important, and it was done in a very neutral and nice way.
    You had no right to edit her words and delete my post, and SJ's post.
    My post was helpful, your editing is harmful.
    You have done more harm than good.
    Not only to Darcy, but to everyone.
    A college student should be writing at a college level, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with a college student being told that. Its for her own good. Any of her professors would do the same.
    Ignoring the problem, and "protecting" people, so they dont get "hurt feelings" is very harmful.
    Especially when its something that would benefit them greatly to know.

    Scot
