Hi again.. Is there something wrong with the list mailhost or
something? I've posted this message twice &I've never seen it in print
on the list. Thanks to Michael Bowers for the reply.  My message:

  I would like the E-mail address of the Chile Woman or any other 
source of "choice" chile plants.  Also, is this listserver always this
screwed up or is it my mailhost? Sure hope this makes it into print on
the list so I know it gets through. Also, anywhere reasonably close to
the cities mentioned will be alright . Will someone please respond with
a name or address I can use. Thanks & I hope this makes it into
print....Jim LeClere
