THE WORLD DAHLIA MAP
THE DAHLIA GROWERS MAP OF THE WORLD
On November the 1st I had a brain wave, I donít have many, but this was a corker. I was looking at the Yahoo Dahlia Group emails, I know youíve heard about them, and you think itís not for you. Let me tell you, that is exactly what I thought first glance. I even tried to unsubscribe myself at one stage, but due to my incompetence in computering, (I no it isnít a word but my Spell-Check has been programmed to think it is) Any way, the brain wave I come up with is this. What about if every member of the Yahoo Dahlia Group could see where every other member was located in the World? They were a bit spread out but I thought this wouldnít be too hard for an intelligent person to figure out. Before I could say Jack Sprattís Catís got the fish, the deed was done, and although it took a while for the least competent computer users to get on the map, the thing has taken off like all good ideas do. Wanna know who the clever person was that put the World map together? I knew you would; it was Don McAlister.
Now this is the suggestion I would like to make to every member of the ADS and NDS (I've put the Societies in alphabetical order) If youíre a show off like me, do yourself a favour, and join the Yahoo Dahlia Group, if only to get on the World Map of Dahlia Growers. Of course you can join in the debates if you want to, if not you can listen in without taking part, and even find out what itís like growing dahlias in as far away places as Greece and Sweden. Now Iíve got the hang of it, I must say itís the perfect way of introducing the World to the dahlia lovers. Do your best for me ADS & NDS and get your members surfing. By the way because I was the instigator of the idea I've been made administrator. Sounds a bit of a highfalutin name for an ex-painter and decorator, but as I'm in charge help me out here, no suggestive remarks, or dodgy photographs. Not that I'd think for one moment dahlia lovers would ever be into such things, but I do have to warn you the programme will be vetted, and anything thought to be unsavoury will be deleted. Unfortunately the map I was the instigator of was dismantled and a new one, or link was made - I've tried in vain to place the new link on my site, but fear there is something stopping me being successful - I'll try once more, and if that fails I'll give up because there are more important things to do than worry about a map.
