Wow, currently at 299, just one short of the 300 mark.
Wonder who is next to this ever expanding FF.
Maybe a little free [rooted starter] fig as a present?!

Gorgi,
yes i saw that 299 seems like i look down at bottom of page a lot to see the newbies and then look at there profiles out of curiousity. Maybe in a year or two 500? In 5 years 1000? who knows if the popularity continues that would be great to converse with so many different folks from across the country.
Hopeing the postman brought you the mail i sent to you George.

Cecil,
yes a present indeed, it been a little over 4 years on the other forum , for some reason it took me a while to join this one. Now in all seriousness i  enjoy this one more its faster to load for me as the other forum takes longer and then when i go to read a post it takes a while to load unlike before even with the other new computer we have and easier to navigate and the moderator is very understanding and of course is a fig nut along with the rest of us and the members are friendly as well.
I hope it continues to keep growing.

<<Edit>> Ok i just went to gw forum and the page loaded fast for 1st time in a while even when i clicked to read post they popped up good, like Dennis the Menace you to say " Gee Wilikers"
Wonder if it will do this on a friday or saturday eve.
Ah what the heck.
Best Health

I sent Taralynn a note, and apologized for no fireworks, Caribbean cruise, etc. I think the forum was worth the effort. I know I continue to learn from the members.

Yes, thanks to Jon for all the resources you've made available on your website, including this forum.

And this one has no annoying ads like on that "other" forum.  I was just over there, and at this time don't need/want (1) psychic readings about a summer romance, (2) plug-in air fresheners, (3) puppy potty training lessons, (4) advice about class reunions, etc.

It means, on the average, one new member every other day. It is because the F4F is a welcoming community and Jon tries to keep it that way. It always feel like we are in a room and have known each other for longer than the age of the Forum. Let us hope it stays this way and we keep learning from each others and passing on what we learn from others and what we observe ourselves.
