    Roger, We have never met, but I feel I know you almost as if we had. I have followed you on "This Old Hous" and "ASK TOH", and I am disappointed that you will not be seen as often on either show. However, I understand the need to take time to be healthy, and if you're having health issues, I pray that they will be taken care of in short order. So, take care of yourself, get healthy, and maybe return to "TOH"and "ASK TOH" and continue passing on your lifelong knowledge of gardening and landscaping fundamental principles and tips. Regards, Jim
