  sorry about unfriendly mail address

Dear all,

I am happy I found your group. Sorry about my unfriendly address; I am a
programmer who gets an unbelievable amount of junk mail; this is the one I
use until I find out whether joining an organization will get me huge
amounts of unwanted spam.

My name is Kathy Kempf, and I live in central Ohio, Zone 6, USA. I replied
to a few messages I read before writing this, so I guess some people have
already found out I have a great sense of humor. I loved the thread about
stones. I sent part of it on to others who will also get a kick out of it.

I started growing aroids (other than Jack-in-the-Pulpit) a couple of years
ago; found them to be fascinating, and want to find out a lot more before I
invest a lot of time and sweat into getting new ones. As I responded to
someone's letter, I was pleasantly shocked to find mine was hardy here; I
don't have much room to store (more) tropicals.

I am disabled (crippled); plants that take a whole lot of nurturing are
allowed to die, sometimes a slow lingering death, other times a swift one
with my trowel.

Enough about me. I can't wait to learn more!

Kathy, I too am a programmer and have never received anything unwanted as a
result of this list. I have collected aroids (mostly epiphytic ones) for
about five years. This is a great list with great people. Luckily most
aroids are not very hard to grow.
