Amen, Brad. I was already looking for the PBS unsubscribe page myself 
but then Roy Herald posted that spectacular photo of his flowering 
Massonia plant just before I could unsubscribe. For me, posts like 
that one reminded me of why I joined. Besides, any topic or message, 
including this one, that anyone thinks is self-indulgent or insulting 
drivel can easily be ignored and deleted. As you mentioned, there are 
have been plenty of those recently but I strongly urge you to hold 
out for the good stuff. Those are the unexpected topics worth waiting 
for. If you are not convinced, and still decide to unsubscribe from 
this listserv, I suggest you ask Dell (the person who masterfully 
handles the seed and bulb exchanges) to email the BX announcements 
directly to you. That way you won't have to rely on this listserv to 
find out about them. As you might expect, there are usually many more 
BX announcements late in the summer through autumn than now.

Best Regards,
