Time again to shake the tree... Thanks to the generosity of @Paul2032, I would like to offer 25 acorns to the first 8 people who reply. To qualify you must have updated your profile to show your location or your zone (like above: Baja California, zone 11). This is very helpful to others on the site when we're talking about plants, and I'm happy to lend assistance if you're having trouble making it happen. Good luck with the raffle! Smiling

@Baja_Costero, you gave me some last time and my profile shows where I am. But like last time, I just wanted to say thank you! The location does help a lot when reading posts and evaluating plants that people are posting about. I'm always looking for possibilities! Not to mention that it's so nice of you to give acorns so people can participate in the NARR.

And thanks, as always, to @dave for doing this!
Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

Experiencing technical difficulties here... I am now unable to give more than 1 acorn at a time (some software glitch?) so I will wait while that is resolved, rather than clicking on the acorn button 25 times per recipient... Smiling the giveaway is still on, and I will keep everyone updated about its progress.

Yes, it's working fine now. That has to be the fastest fix ever. Thank You! Or maybe I just needed to restart. Smiling

Baja - I was the recipient of acorns tossed in May. And as some might recall, I went on to ramble on the thread about S&H Green Stamps which led to a trip down memory lane for some of us.

Last night I was tossed 10 acorns which I was happy to use.

I'm writing to thank you for starting this thread and hope that some of our newer members will see it and join the fun.

And in honor of your generous spirit, I'm tossing an acorn back at ya.

Good luck to us all.
