Good morning:

     The recent flurry of verbage on various issues facing NAFEX is indeed
interesting.  I strongly advise your continued interest in the viability of
NAFEX as it has been the recipient of a trend which has been going on for
some 15 years or so.  That trend would be called apathy, or many folks
having great ideas and no one to do the necessary work to pursue these
ideas.  Also NAFEX feel into a rut of "making money" in the stock market
some years back which turned out to be just that....a wasted-time rut.

     Anyways I strongly encourage you all to continue the dialogue and not
to worry about so-called "controversy".  Most subjects can cause mixed
responses and it really serves no purpose to get hostile over much of
anything.  Just keep plugging away gracefully.

     A couple of days ago I put a note on this site about the upcoming MAIA
meeting on Nov. 13 at Dawes Arboretum in Newark, OH.
     The lack of response surprises me a bit.  Reason.  Many of you have
recently ranted on and on about the wonderment of "antique" varieties.
Well, show up at Dawes on the 13th and I'll show you some modern varieties
which possess more flavor than any antique you've ever eaten.  Also Dawes is
one of the best kept secrets in the eastern USA.  This place is a shear
showcase of various collections of near every kind of plant you can imagine.

ed, south central Ohio and doin' okay
