    • COMING PALMTALK CHANGES - PLEASE READ   02/14/2017

      In the coming week (probably beginning this weekend), several major changes will be occurring with PalmTalk. The result will be short periods of complete closure, or of limited viewing (that is, no posting - but viewing still possible). These changes are major and unexpected complications are always a possibility. So, please be patient and bear with us. For those interested, the first phase will be a migration of the entire site to a new more powerful server. After this is completed, a major upgrade to the newest version of the forum software will then be attempted. It is hoped that these improvements, along with some new configurations of various parameters made possible with the new server capabilities, will result in an elimination of some error messages and glitches which have been plaguing various tasks and viewing recently. As with any upgrade there will probably be some new and/or changed features, or ways of viewing and/or using the forum. I anticipate these will be minor, and as always if there is anything confusing or needing explanation, we will set up a topic to discuss them.

The loss of a good palm friend

4 posts in this topic

Sadly on Weds (2/20/08) Glynn Whiddon a friend of mine and member of the Palm Society of South Texas passed away.  

Glynn had been in the palm business in the Rio Grande Valley for 30 some years.  His love was palms and tropical plants.  Naturally he enjoyed our palm meetings and was always very generous with palm donations to the society.   No doubt, the 'palm family' here in Texas, will not be the same with out him...

You'll be missed my friend!   Jv

Sadly, I got word of this from Tad yesterday as well. I knew Glynn and had the pleasure of him visiting my nursery and also paid visit to his nursery once while out in Texas. He had a beautiful nursery and enjoyed the passion for palms like so many of us do.

Jeff and Kris, thanks for your kind words.  I am sure all of us can relate to meeting another plant-person that is just down to earth and unpretentious.  Glynn was just such a guy...  thanks again.
