Jack,

To my knowledge, we have not started compiling a subscription list as of yet. Several of us are currently writing articles for the magazine. Really, finding businesses willing to advertise with us seems to be all that is holding us up at the moment. If you are interested in becoming a part of the magazine contributor crew, contact MediaHound (Jarred) and let him know.

Jack, when we are 100% sure that the magazine will be printed (as Brent says, it's an advertiser issue at the moment), Jarred will put up either a thread or a whole other site dedicated to getting subscriptions for the magazine. At that point, you can submit your pertinent details and you'll know who to PayPal or send a cheque to.

I don't know why I only have this photo in such a low resolution compared to what it should be, but here is my submission for the contest.

Musa 'African Red' variegated male bud among papaya and (it's own) banana leaves taken at Harry P. Leu Gardens in Orlando Florida in August 2005.

Was this contest officially closed last night?

From the first post in this thread:

From the post lorax made last night:

The first post should probably be edited when/if the contest is closed so that subsequent entries are not submitted. Not everbody reads all five pages of the discussion thread. Just my $.02.

Good luck everybody!

Of course, the contest is open until TONIGHT at midnight Ecuador time.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that does that! I will work (and goof off, if I have time) any day of the week and can't keep track very well and frequently have to ask my wife and others what day of the week it is and/or what the date is. When I had an office job, it wasn't a problem.
