All I can say,or want to say publicly,is that those pictures must have taken up a whole lot of bandwidth, they are gorgeous,and so good that Mischka pays and not those who post so many pictures.

As for Dora and the other ones that Keith Mueller bred:

Carolyn, as always.

I post more images than Gerardo, but his are better. I'll cut mine back instead.

Ricky, as a former Denverite, who was teaching med students at the Med School,then on Colorado and 8th, I forbid you to do that. Didn't you see the razz emoticon I posted to Gerardo? I know him very well and he razzes me as I do to him, no clear winner yet IMO.

As long as it's Mischka paying for bandwidth it seems to me that anyone can post all the pictures they want to.

Don't mind me Carolyn. My internet creed:

I came
I saw
I blurt

*Certainly a good point on bandwidth. We're at the arcade on Mischka's dime, everyone should be thoughtful of costs.

Those electric bills must be something.

Are there flowers that do well during those two months?

PS. copper has been working out great, I only fried them once when I got a little too generous with the blue stuff. At 50 to 75% strength, it's awesome.
Where would you move? I think you can get hibiscus and Mexican Petunia to flower, okra flowers and grows extremely well in the heat but it's a hibiscus of a sort, some of the dendrobium dirt growing orchids are a few summer blooms that come to mind.
I am still thinking of getting a cacao, might just do that, it was you that fave me the idea. Fairchild Tropical Botanical Gardens has a chocolate festival every year, and they sell cacao cultivars there.
I really like copper spray, but never ever more than 50% of the weakest recommended strength. If those leaves curl, you have sprayed it too strong. If you can see the blue color on the leaves, it is too strong. It enters the cells of the leaves so you gotta take extra care.
Gerardo, the above was more for educating others, I know you already know the right spray strength.

(I'm considering a move to more tropical climates)

You said last week you'd be back in San Diego and my question is which San Diego since I've found two of them.


Verrry interesting, see link below.

Some pictures to show others where you want to move to

I'd go back myself, but first,since I've been in San Diego,CA, I'd like to fly to Spain and visit THAT San Diego, and use Spain as a jumping off point to visit the several countries I've wanted to visit but haven't yet , but time ran out on those visits.

I could make a list of folks in many countries that I know well,but would like to meet in person ,so dream on Carolyn,dream on.

Wait!!! While I have been to several places in Mexico and I think just once in Tijuana where you could buy liquor cheaply, I could think about going back to Tijuana and meeting your family,but especially you, to see if the real Gerardo is the same Gerardo I see posting, often with great wit and innuendo and showing pictures.

Also looking for one of my USPS folks to deliver the jelly beans,or whatever they are.

Methinks perhaps you must be very busy elsewhere doing many things.

In other words find some time to please get back here and post something since it's been a week since your last post in your own thread and plants are growing,setting fruits, etc.,not here, but where you are, and that's not the Gerardo I know.

We went all the time and enjoyed the Music, food, Art, and especially the people down there.. Love the cactus pics in your area. Dry heat is cool, 100 degrees is very pleasant. Haven't been to TJ or Ensenada in years.

I'll get on it Carolyn, when I get back. Down in Baja California Sur.

You were spot on Deb, at this beach called El Requeson.

Jimbo: this is more or less the same desert, just as mystical as back in your day.
