    AHA!! You've already found out the real secret to OT's special qualities - our much beloved leader, Bruce. We are all incredibly grateful for this Forum and
    for the tireless and positive energy he puts into it. And that's a true understatement!

    Glad your orchids have fallen into line - I know I certainly would be putting down roots and putting up spikes if I lived in Barbados!
