Jonathon,

	The page took a long time to download, and I'm not sure if I read the
story on page five, tho I read a lot of stuff that came in, there didn't
seem to be links to the stories so much as just scrolling through a variety
of stories. I read several intersting stories on various gardening displays
that are available at shows and on tours.

Was curious over the title as "green fingers" til I remembered that's what
you say in the UK for what we call a "green thumb" ....

Incidently, Mrs. P's Links now has a link to the British Museum for their
wonderful site about Ancient Egypt! It is well done and useful even with
our young children.
