E-mail Alert:

A note to say I have changed web-host providers for my regular web-site. This has shut down my e-mail address. I hope to have that e-mail back up and running by Monday afternoon.

If you are using G-mail I would love to hear from you about it. I am thinking of using it for all of that type of e-mail.



*This address will not change, I am staying here with the Blog, I like WordPress(dot)com and have been very happy with everything they have done. at this site. I am also happy with the look here. No offense to Blogger but this is the place for me. If you want to see another great example of this Cutline Theme take a look at Kathy Purdy’s blog; Cold Climate Gardening-a great read by the way.

*The Ohio State University is in the National Championship game against the Florida Gators. Let us hope the basketball championship play out better for the Buckeye’s than the BCS title game against the Gators . . . Go Bucks!

Finally . . .


By Rick Anderson

The Whispering Crane Institute was originally formed to act as the umbrella organization for the Philosophy of Design Symposium, and other seminars and workshops given by Rick Anderson and Richard L. Dube’. In the year 2000 WCI became a sole proprietorship owned by Rick Anderson. Today the WCI provides design and consultation services for Landscape Contractors, acts as a Green Industry think tank, and provides training for others in the form of workshops, seminars, and individual consulting. The WCI also provides written material, opinions, case-studies and how-to articles for industry trade magazines.


  1. Thank you for the kind mention of my site. I use Gmail for most general correspondence and all my newsletter stuff. It is pretty good about keeping spam out of one’s inbox and makes it very easy to get rid of the few that make it through. Email me if you want to talk further.

    I am trying G-mail, thanks for your input.

  2. Double damn them Gators.

    It’ll now be doubly hard to pull for the Gtors in anything. Now Spurrier is making comments . . . calling tOSU “runner-up U”

  3. I am trying to find a way to get in contact with Mike. I had attempted to renovate my home and was left with a lot of projects started and nothing done. My contractor not only left without finishing my job. He obviously left with my money and stole all my tools and other stuff. I feel so robbed let down and stressed out. I am a single mom with three young girls. I have been on my own for over seven years. I have no support from the father and have been trying to do my best for us. I felt it was time for a change and tried to make some changes to our home and try and make it feel like our own again. We wanted to start a new chapter by putting all the old memories to rest and start fresh. But little did I know I was going to get in over my head and get myself into trouble. I am now left with all these unfinished projects, neighbours who are upset, inspectors that want things done and me going out of my mind and with no money or trust in anyone.
    Please if someone could help my family I would be forever greatful.
