does anyone here have any experience with allergic symptons after
working with flourishing Crimson Bottlebrush trees?

I read about symptoms similar to hay fever when sniffing the
flowers, but I am more wondering about a large rash after skin
contact with the tree or its flowers. Is that something that
others have experienced?

Yes, I have an allergy to Bottlebrush Trees, I have only just
discovered this and I am quite shocked about this as I have been
blaming my raised very red itchy, inflamed skin on insect bites as
the beginning of hives always start with spots like bites. I put the
Bottlebrush to the test by deliberately rubbing a flower against the
inside of my forearm to test if there is a reaction and sure enough
next morning I had very itchy, red, inflamed hives!

Still on a server after 7 years wow...

Usenet as it's supposed to be - not the version Google is pre-empting,
removing the technology hurdle of finding a server and setting up an account
and packaging for the hoi polloi.

Google have your usenet, email, phone and/or tablet operating system (?),
youtube uploads, web search history and geographical search history. How do
you quantify a soul? When is TMI actually TMI?
