:o Oh my gosh ya'll!!! :o

We were driving home from Green Mama's yesterday and my husband said the most amazing thing to me. He had gone to lunch with some co-workers and one fellow was talking about how he was using Round-up :shock: to kill some weeds in his yard. DH just piped into their conversation "Why use such a nasty chemical when all you need is a little vinegar and maybe a little orange oil and soap?" OMG ~ he has dragged his heels on the whole organic gardening approach for a year now and all the sudden the green light has come on. OH, and while at the garden shoppe we picked up some more molasses, humore and sul-po-mag and he just casually comments on the way home how nice it is that he can just store these items on the floor of our garage and not have to worry about locking them up so the kiddos don't get into it. This is just so wonderful and I just had to share a bit of happy news with ya'll.

Have a happy week!
Christina :mrgreen:

Yes, I can relate. To my surprise, my husband has talked with his coworkers as well. A couple of them already listen to Howard, so they were right there to back it all up.

Then yesterday, we go to see my husband's divorce lawyer. The lawyer says my name sounds familiar. OK, I am thinking, I was here with my husband last time he saw you. Then I asked him if he listens to Howard. "Yes", he said, "I am a ground crew member. That is where I have heard your name. You even answered one of my questions on the discussion board about a year ago." Wow. What a nice thing that turned out to be. He took $500 off his normal retainer fee. Could this have been a "ground crew" discount? :lol:

Way to go Nadine. You are a celebrity. Sure is nice to have you to talk to when calling into Howards show. You have answered all my questions. You also make a great working partner and mentor. Look forward to more in the future. Will see you at the Ground Crew meeting.
