One of the nicest things I've done in the last decade is share a bit of gardening with WWOOFers. I've been gardening here for over 50 years. My wife joined me over 30 years ago. I went from liberal arts, to construction to computing through time.

    Also, thanks for the welcome. Perhaps you could ease me into gardening. I love growing things, but have neither time, nor attention, nor expertise to allow me to be successful. With expertise, it would take less time and attention!

    Arthur, it is critical to remember that 30% of people who are treated for almost any set of symptoms (subjective complaints) improve because of the placebo effect. Example: studies showed that 50% of joint pain sufferers reported improvement on glucosamine. 30% of joint pain sufferers reported improvement on placebo. Thus it is likely that 20% of these sufferers had an actual response to the glucosamine. In Western medicine, we are used to treatments that are effective about 95% of the time.
