I am learning and trying to remember the glossary terms as they pop up in the Random Idea. How about a pro-NUN-see-a-shun along with the definition so I don't go walking around sounding like a hick? For example "raceme". Is it "RACE-mee"? or "ray-SEEM"? or "rah-SEEM"? Or??

Great suggestion! And I have no idea how to pronounce any of them! Hilarious!
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

I carry a little book, New Pronouncing Dictionary of Plant Names with pronunciations with me in my purse. I got it when I ordered some plant tags a few years ago. Paw Paw Everlast Label Company. So if I'm pronouncing it one way and someone else is pronouncing it another, I look it up!

Raceme (ra-se m'; a) DARN! I dont' know how to use the symbols on a PC...basically, ray - see- em
