I don’t know . . . there are probably several factors at work, and several reasons… Continue reading 2008 CENTS Show in Columbus, Ohio (7)
Well just like that it’s over 3 days. 3 days of classes, lectures, educational sessions, walking the trade show floor collecting catalogs, discovering new plants, new materials, catching up with old friends, and maybe making a new one or two. 3 days later a couple of bags of catalogs, fresh ideas and new perspective .… Continue reading 2008 CENTS Show in Columbus, Ohio (6)
