Hi there,

I appreciate you visiting HOMEGROWN and know that you have friends here, but I deleted the last blog post because it too closely resembled advertising a product. I welcome you to participate in discussions here, but am not comfortable with providing a forum simply for commercial/promotional purposes. I hope you understand.

You need to be a member of HOMEGROWN to add comments!
