Pete - thank you for the chuckle! It's funny how everyone says "man of the house", but when it comes down to it "if Mama ain't happy, nobody is happy!" LOL I think we all like our egos stroked a bit and told how we are really in control LOL LOL ;)

Same story in my house Pete. Pretty sure my wife rolls her eyes at me and my hobbies at least once a day.

Oh yeah, I get the "look" as well. I have figs, pomegranates and mulberries in various states of development throughout our home. Thankfully, my wife loves the fruits of my labors. Besides, it's a fairly benign addiction. It could be so much worse than sticks, baggies, Perlite and cups.
