  • Sometimes It Is What It Is... All Stars Die...

    Few of you know about me. But now, you'll learn just a little more about me. Always greatful and appreciate good people. But unfortunately, I easily get bored of things. I have been a numismatist, a handyman, a family vlogger, a website designer, an artist and even a boxer and now, continue to serve in a good way for my community. I have a very active mind and I'm always jumping into things fast! Specially when people tell me "I can't do something or to find something better to do" like a couple of people have said to me on here. I usually end up proving people wrong but eventually move on.

    The Fig hobby has been an amazing journey but has gotten to me and has become one of those hobbies. I'm pretty much ready to move on. I have a nice collection, thrown quite a few but will let the rest grow to give out and eventually sell some copies before I get rid of most of them. I will however keep about 5-10 of them to trial further or try new methods to hopefully make them work better here in the South East.

    This desicion in no way has to do with any member. I love people in the community. I appreciate the generosity and how kind many of you have been to me. I'm not interested in being a seller or a "pro". I just wanted to learn, grow a couple of varieties, make others happy and give back, as I always have. Ofcourse, many of also know I've had no shame in putting out what in my opinion have been trash or corrupt (that will never change) websites, persons or sellers.

    Fig Database, as much info as it has acquired is still there for anyone who wants to use it, as it stands. Thank you to all of you who have contributed and continue to do so. You're a huge help to the community.

    I may post here every once in a while but it may not be of much help or worth anything. But, I'll always be a member and answer anyone who contacts me. I dont easily forget friends or good people so with that said, enjoy the hobby, have fun with it, share your experience and learn as much as possible.

    Love yall, thank yall and hope you understand.

    I really appreciate having the Fig Database. It is a great resource. If you no longer enjoy what you are doing/growing there is nothing wrong with moving on. Sometimes a break is needed with a later return; other times you just move on. Thank you for what you have contributed.

                            I got Stroz from Deborah (the founder) herself and had the honor of speaking with her for some time. It was an honor acquiring the variety directly from her.

                                    I read all your posts and watched all your you tube clips to learn about figs. Thank you for sending me I-258 too. It's figging this year. We will certainly miss your energy.

                                            I was going to hit the like button on this, but couldn't allow myself to do it.
                                            Definitely not going to be the same without you, but certainly wish you and your family the very best!

                                            As a newbie that started out 3 years ago, I have personally benefited from having you around.
                                            So for what it's worth, thank you for investing in this community. Because in doing so, you (and others) have helped a farm town boy in Ohio to find his passion and love for figs!!!
