Oh yeah! For new users.. It takes ten posts to lose the "newbie" status!

I bought a large 3 Gallon Jaboticaba last year at the same sale for $12.00!

I have a parts vendor at my truck shop in Accounts that calls me "Dan".  Everytime I call the guy I say "This is Patrick" he says "How can I help you Dan"... Have you been attending the Rare Fruit Council Meetings at Mounts?

I am the GM of a diesel repair shop in WPB, Florida.  My hobbies include, walking around my yard aimlessly looking a each leaf of every living plant in my yard, pest and disease control of my plants, fertilizing my plants, explaining to my neighbors why I talk to my plants, explaining to my family why I talk to my plants, and seeking out new places in my yard that require additional plants in the ground...

I also enjoy working on the computer (thus the forum and other web ventures), and Charter Boat fishing from time to time.

I truly love tropical fruit growing, and honestly enjoy the growing more than the eating.  Sometimes the challenge of growing new things and being sucessful is the best part!

Those who know me say I am kind and very well organized, a good father and provider, and a little obsessive/compulsive.

I respect all Religious beliefs..

I am not political at all..

Would Sweetard be politically correct?

That was my first time trying Durian, kind of reminded me of a fermented sweet onion vanilla mouse sprinkled with garlic powder.  I liked it, but I drink buttermilk with celery salt for a desert.  I have some frozen Durian in the fridge right now, I may actually eat some now that I think of it..
