Did You Know

Did you know, it is purported that bamboo brings good luck?
Two stalks for love
Three stalks for happiness, wealth and longevity
Four: death wish. Yikes! Doesn't sound very lucky does it?
Seven: health
Twenty-one: blessings
If you were purchasing bamboo, how many stalks would you get?

That is new to me - If I was to buy bamboo I would buy seven.

You do NOT want bamboo. It spreads like wildfire. You can't get rid of it, even if you till your entire area and think you got it all. Ask me, I know. You can't compost it, you can't burn it. It will take over your yard. Ask me how I know this. Better yet, don't bother asking, just don't buy bamboo for any reason (grin).

I didn't know that! I'm getting a new pillow with the fabric made from bamboo. Does that count? Have a good day!

I'll take two because I know how fast those suckers grow.

I am totally selfish. Three.

I would select two. Some of my co-workers had these they seemed to thrive under the lighting. I wonder how they are doing now, we have been out of the office since the 2nd week of March.
