okay Sassy...do you have the ability to blast mail? I really think there are other cube forums that would be interested. I could help but c-mailing and/or e-mailing could get tedious if there is a way to tree-mail a general notice to others in the same geographic zones by group.

Trish...meant no offense on the 'get it' thing; I really do think there is an unserved sector and that a little fodder might be of use to add even new membership overall. While I let my subscription lapse in that real old place well over a year ago, as I recall, there were others from the same zone area that seem not to be using cubits but would probably like to be involved in the more serious aspect of ATP. Once there is awareness of Sassy's group, there may be other 'word of mouth' contacts for participation.

Jamie,
You are right... there is a large area that goes uncovered. While a group might start out small, the further word spreads who knows where it may lead. I've posted about ATP a couple times now on F/B even.... you just never know. I wish there was a way for me to blast out cmails by zone, but I've looked and can't see a way to do that without going through every name on the list (which I will not do- I myself AM a stubborn Texan clear to the core) Smiling so if it goes~ great, if not I wont be crying over spilled milk
I only thought I would ask about it since so many others were asking about their areas. Don't know where everyone up north should go though for information for their zones.

Trish/Dave I do have a question for you on this - on another site Oklahoma was with other Northern, Wetter, Greener states... Would it be possible to group in time maybe Oklahoma move with Texas where our weather is more related?

Mitch- I would think OK needs to be with TX or SW gardening.

Jamie- no offence taken!

Maybe add one of the active members from the Oklahoma Cubit over here to be moderator on the Texas Cubit to kinda show a way to the new home and answer garden questions here?

I think that for the most part the "Coffee" people are happy where they are. I know I am, but will shuffle back and forth. I don't intend to not renew when the time comes. I'm comfortable..........us old people like the same-o, same-o. Big Grin
