Re: Hot Peppers, Cool Marketing



Liz says the secret to growing the hot little devils is  b r i c k s. Yes
bricks and you heard it here first. Up here in the 'gonna kiss the ozone
clime' (Denver), it gets cold at night - she says... So, you surround them

But seriously folks, what you really need is a little water, a little sun,
a couple cervesas - and time to dream.

more later...
