    yes, IT IS!!!
    I kicked myself in the butts for being a clutz but the chids will make amends, setting you back a few months but you will be fine, I am sure!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    I just got a jewel orchid in spike ____________. Came today. The spike was nicely packed unattatched in the packaging.... I almost feel a bit better knowing it happens to others. But I'm so sad...
    I'm sorry you broke one!!

    Well, if the rule is one a year, then I won't have to worry for another 11 months!
