Wow, this used to be a hopping place.....

bethr1957(z9 Huntington Beach, CA)June 20, 2010

My name is Beth Rogers, and I spent five happy years on Garden Web, before my marriage and health fell apart in 2006. I have just replanted and ran-not-walked to come here again, and visit old friends.

And have my rose addiction validated. (chuckle)

Any old friends around? Any news on this site and our glorious leader (I know he is out there somewhere!)

Please help me catch up!

Beth----I'm still around and check in every so often----Yes this used to be a really jumpimg place but not so much anymore-----

what a shame because I met a lot of really neat people here on conversations---

Maybe if enough of us post it will come back to life

Sorry to hear about your marriage and your health----

Hope you are feeling better---

My daughter is going through a nasty divorce and it is very painful

Hi, Beth :)

Yes, this used to be a really hoppin' place, but as Florence said, "not so much anymore." This used to be my home-away-from-home (years ago), and I would check-in every day. And I too met a lot of fine folks here--folks I miss to this day.

So sorry about your marriage and health, as well. Glad you came back to visit us again though! :)

Florence, it pains me to hear that your daughter is still going through a nasty divorce. Hoped things would have gotten better for her. Hugs to her, you, and Beth.

Florence, I'm so sorry to hear that the divorce situation is just getting worse. Your poor, dear daughter. She has been in pain over this for such a long time. :( I have two daughters myself so I know that when our children hurt we hurt right along with them. Sigh... I will be keeping your daughter in my thoughts and prayers.

As to how we can stir this place up, I tried to do that very thing by starting a new thread. Perhaps it will help a little. :)
