    • 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.

SFPS holds its meetings on the first Monday of every other month, just the even-number months (Feb, April, June, August, October and December). We have no general meeting in September, but I hope you can attend our next meeting on October 3rd.

This is the program for the October Meeting:

Scott Zona has agreed to present the program at the SFPS meeting on October 3. His topic is one of those shown on his website, the Learned Gardener. It is entitled, "The Natural History of Palms: An intimate look at palms, the Princes of the Plant Kingdom and the Big Game of the Plant World." According to the site, the presentation "introduces the palms, a family of over 2,500 species from the tropics and subtropics. Topics include palm geography, palm record-holders, morphology, pollination and fruit dispersal, and new discoveries."
