What's up with the search engine?

I've been trying to do research on pears. Some time ago I wrote down some notes regarding a member that said Abete Fetel, Belle D Guigno, and Fondante de Moulle were favorites. I have tried every variation of the names: Abbe Fetel, Abbe Fetal, Abate Fetel, Bella di Giugno, Bella de Guigno, Fondante de Moulins Lille, and have had no luck.

I KNOW there are posts regarding these varieties.

I also was trying to learn something about Asian pears and whether they would grow in Colorado. I found very little.

It seems that the older posts have been deleted.

Anyone else having the same issues?

Thank you!
