    Since we moved I must add my new pet peeve...

    I so hate the little spiders that are weaving my cattleya leaves togethr...making their nest and then running up my arms when I try to send them and their webs packing. I Hate Spiders! and Bugs in general!

    Glad you still won, Jordan!
    Ok - guilty - how DO you pronounce 'keiki'?
    Scale is on my list too.
    Also, when you show a friend/neighbor a special bloom that took AGES to show up, and you worked so hard to get it right, and fought bugs, and the devil himself to get the little beauty to bloom, and they say, "oh, that's nice. Say did you see Seinfeld last night? Wasn't that just special?" Grrrr....

    yea, its because im the yongest showing person in NZ- i think- and the judges took pity on me. i pronounce it Key Key or kay kay, i dont know if im right or not tho =)
    On the line of scale and aphids, i took my oda. pagan lovesong x mac. bradshawina to school to display, and one of the librarians had a vase full of sweet smelling daffs and lilly pilly flowers. Guess what happened....

    Add to that the question "Does it SMELL?" I usually answer no trash smells, the flower has a nice fragrance. (With the exception of some of my Bulbos) They also feel they have to touch it. Keep your damn hands off my hard work!!
