Hello friends, I decided to take a little break and I am back. I fell ill with a very bad sore throat and then a second bout of gastro.  I was puking from both ends.  I felt really bad because my daughter was at work and my hubby was in Miami. I had looked like something the cat had dug up.   I also had some computer problems, my old faithful finally died on me and I had to resurrect my daughter's. I had used it for a week then it died on me. I diagnosed that it was the fan that had stopped working and had to put in a new one. It then worked for a while then it died on me AGAIN. I figured it was the power supply so I took the old one from my dead computer and installed it. Now my  computer is working fine zipping along nicely. (And I did all of this by myself).

  4. Welcome back Helen, you've been away for long! haha. Am sorry to know what happened, somehow i relate to you as i also had mouth sore for 2 wks which i just let without meds. My tummy was not good also for the last 3 days, but good now. At least i didn't have your symptoms, much milder. Our dry season is also here, they say we will have wet dry season, but the rain hasn't been coming, although it is always cloudy. Your plants are looking good though. You know what, i haven't seen a Plumeria pod in this country, i wonder why!
