Default Another XericWorld Milestone

Hi everyone,

Sorry about the silence on here lately, it has been a crazy in the last year. I had a flood in our home that destroyed half the house as well as the lab. I had a baby in October......My dog died..... bla bla bla.... my business has grown exponentially..... not a lot of time for relaxing and enjoying this community I created three years ago....

But I did notice today that we have now surpassed 1,000 members and are getting a stead stream of new enthusiastic people joining the fun.

The quality, and level of conversation here can't be matched anywhere on the web, and I want to thank everyone who hangs out here for teaching me so much.

The fact that I have not had to moderate a single thread in over a year shows what a great group of people we have here and again, I want to thank everyone for keeping on topic and civil. This place pretty much runs it's self, and that's a good thing, because of my limited time these days.

One of these days in the near future, when I have a bit of time, I will upgrade the software which should add some cool features to the site. I wish everyone a great growing season in 2013 and hope that the coldest days are now behind us.

Cheers, Allen Repashy

Default User Names

When I first came across this site, I didn't know what a computer was. I just knew I had been gardening since the age of two (radish seeds, with crop). At seventeen, I found out about Aeoniums. Then, I found out about E. obesa.

Somehow, and I don't know how, I ended up with three degrees from some kick ass schools, where I taught them a thing or two.

I ended up being an estate gardener in Atlanta, and then Tampa.

My user name came from the owner of a property here in Lake Charles-I never showed up to do work.


What's your story, Morning Glory?

Thanks for everything Allen, XW is a great site! I have noticed PPD (posts per day) has increased substantially over the past year or so, in particular. It now seems to be over that magic threshold of 'self-sustaining' that every forum needs to achieve in order to thrive.
