    The Ultimate “Put Up or Shut Up” Challenge

    Will, Here's an idea built upon that statement. If you are so freely willing to give of yourself for charity, why not set up a live web cam broadcast? You could sit on one of those "dunking booths", like the ones at county fairs and carnivals, you know the ones. Firefighters and Shriners...

    To Seal or Not to Seal

    If a caged monkey slings his feces toward me at the zoo, I don't respond by crapping in my own hand and slinging mine back. I simply say "Dang", realizing the animal is just that, an animal. Further, I don't need to explain, to those that witnessed, that the monkey is an animal, they already...

    Bald Cypress Attempt

    Martin, I will be bringing that one, and some others, for styling advice and info. The one I mentioned for the demo is MUCH larger than the one I got from the club. Probably half again as tall, and 3 or 4 times the girth at the soil line. She is a monster! Here is a picture,the tree is more...

    Bald Cypress Attempt

    Hey Martin, As you may already know, Gary Marchal will be the guest artist for our club in April. Will you be bringing some of your bald cypress, or the one in this thread? I will be supplying the tree for his demo, a nice large collected baldie, and am looking forward to his visit.

    "Majoring on Minors"

    Looks like you replaced "others' hair length" with others' posts; "clothing choices" with bonsai choices, and " eschatological theories" with horticultural theories. Your focus is still on minors, in a major way. Hell, I can hardly log into chat on bT without you pointing out everyones, and my...

    "Majoring on Minors"

    Will, I must admit your comebacks crack me the hell up. Your articles are also well researched and well written. I could care less if they are backed up with "killer trees" or not, the content is solid. I have, rarely, gotten on the "pot-shot" bandwagon concerning you before, and I apologize. I...
