Hear Ye, Hear Ye . . . the Fall 2011 AV&G Bingo Interest thread has begun!

It has been TOO hot, and TOO dry (for me) all summer, and the weather has had me bummed the whole time.

I have therefore decided . . . it is time for Bingo!

Now, for those of you who have not played Bingo with me before, if I do say so myself . . . I run a mean game of Bingo . . . and I mean that in the nice way! The way I figure it, it is still hot in most of the country. But, by the time about 2 weeks goes by for interest/sign-up, then at least a month to play the game . . . by the time everything is said and Bingo'd, the weather will be cool enough to ship any prizes that may contain live plant material . . .

So, with that in mind, please let me know if you are interested! I will start a list of names as they come in here on this post, then will post the How's & Why's this weekend . . .

Nichole

Jannich has volunteered to be the Card Holder for this game . . . each participant should submit their “card” with 25 choices to her no later than September 30, 2011, so you have time to look over the list!

We will be playing for a Bingo "blackout" - where all 25 plants on your "card" need to be called before you can call Bingo. There will be 1-2 calls made per day, with some "bonus" calls made throughout the month. It is up to each player to keep up their cards and call Bingo! (now, if someone goes out of town during the game for whatever reason, arrangements can be made to have someone else manage your card while you are away).

Bingo WILL begin on Saturday, October 1, 2011 . . .

If anyone has any questions, please ask!

Well, Lynn -- it's a gallop I really enjoy, just wish i had more than 24 hours a day lol. Here is what for:
trimming, pruning, weeding, dividing, transplanting, finishing the new beds, collecting some seeds, repotting and cleaning the pots and finally evacuating the potted plants back inside after their summer vacation, somewhere around 300 of them. I have to tell you it's the best weight loss program ever! Maybe that 's why Fall is my second fav season, after spring of course.

Sorry for hijacking the thread, just couldn't resist to share, gardens are my passion, anybody else willing to show yours? could be fun

OK no more, promise!

I envy your energy level. I'm off to an Endocrinolgy surgeon Monday(got a benign parathyroid tumor to take out)- I'll ask him to zap me with some energy and metabolism too (who wouldn't like to lose weight!?). Don't answer Olaf- men always stay fit, it seems, and with all those sinningia crosses, it's obvious that you go, go, go.

Good luck Jamie, I just learned I got some thyroid problems as well and my mom had it removed completely. She's doing well now so I'm sure you're gonna be a busy beaver quite soon. My energy is fed by my plants, I'd be a different person without them

@Jamie: Well, I'm not sure if I can agree with that... My grandmother would be the perfect example of someone who just kept going and going. Compared to her, I'm a lazy, little brat. :)

Oh, and the good thing about Sinningias is that they take, well, less than optimal conditions (missed waterings, excruciating temperatures, too much or too little light etc. - and that's only the list of things that I keep on doing wrong...) like soldiers. And that's why we love them all so much! :)

I'm sorry to hear about your Thyroid. My mother had Thyroid problems pretty much all her adult life. I wish you the best for your surgery and a speedy recovery!

This is Eucodonia 'Tiny Tot'.

Thanks all. Tiny Tot is so cute and fuzzy. I have noticed that the few Sinningias that I have now are pretty carefree, but my Streps. keep failing, slo.w.l.y... one. . by .. one...

Ok, today is the day, and later on I will start the official Bingo thread. At last count, we had 9 out of 10 cards submitted, so don't forget to submit your card by this afternoon!

I will also have the "master" call list - the same as last game. There will be one post (maybe two), and I will use that to cross off the plants as they are called, so if anyone misses a call, they can refer to that post.

Just a few more hours!!!!!
