I will admit that this is about as "social media" as I go; I just don't like the whole idea; I have a dumb flip-phone that I leave in the truck; somebody wants to "reach out and touch me", fuck 'em; if anything is that urgent, they should call 911, not me; otherwise, they can leave a message; I'll get to it.
I loved the days when I had a land-line and answering machine, so I could hear whether I wanted to pick up. I had people would call at 11PM because they had a bug up their ass, or 6AM on Saturday morning (why I got an answering machine).

So about my experience with social media and marketing: Social media works when you do it, I mean when you get around... have time. But it is SOO boring, really, it bores me out. Most of the comments are repetitions of something which you can find after googling 5 seconds. I don't know what to do about it. I just can't get myself to post. I hate facebook, the whole page is cumbersome and slow and disorganized Facebook does not have the functions I want. But of course social media is free and it works. Unfortunately, without social media you will make most of your sales on ebay and they charge. I thought I will post a lot in winter, but now it is winter and what I do is the rest which I did not do in summer. I will rethink my marketing strategy, only because it is written everywhere that you have to do social media that does not mean that there are more interesting ways to do it. I found local contacts the best so far and these locals have relatives and friends visiting and so on.

wilscase: I'm a graduate student at Oregon State and have been working with populations segrgating for different color genes such as the B gene in Cucurbita. I'm curious if anyone has experience with crosses in Cucurbita maxima between grey blue types and orange?

wilscase: I have been backcrossing to the grey parent for 4 generations and have finally selfed the heterozygotes (for the Bmax gene) the populations have segregated for diffuse bicolor (pink/blue, orange green), blue green, blue, green, pink (salmon) and orange
Oct 18, 2022 21:36:29 GMT -5
wilscase: The genes involved are Bmax and bl. I have observed that Bmax is incompletely dominant to wild type (green). I have read that bl is incompletely recessive to Bl(wild type). I'm curious if anyone else has observed the behavior of Bmax in a grey/blue type
Oct 18, 2022 21:38:28 GMT -5
wilscase: It appears that bl and Bmax are interacting to produce different shades of salmon and pink.

wilscase: I'm also interested in any other color genetics, especially the relationships between B and L genes. In the right background these genes can dramatically increase Carotenoids (vitamin A)
