    Congratulations Cathy!!! You thoroughly deserve it. You must know you are one of my favourite people on OT. I just love your interview and pictures of you and your lovely family. Hey, I particularly like the biker pix of you beside the Harley! In our country we use ONE word to describe that RUGGED. Again 'Heartiest Congratulations' from one proud grandparent to another.

    Bravo Cathy, you are a credit to the forum.
    Have been there also Cathy with the same kind of loss, it changes everything doesnt it, our character, personality, philosophy, memories and outlook. I have about 20/100 or so orchids right by bed to make sure its the first thing I see on waking up and helps approach the day in a slightly better frame of mind. The time required for the care/cultivation occupies time when not at work and is spent constructively instead of hovering in that great big doom gloom void and falling in.


    It is orchid collecting and growing that became a main priority hobby and literally thru myself into it full hardcore. Me thinks it was like a duck to water and so, this one of many hobbies/ interests was prompted, created and inspired by the stimulation and relaxation factors within self therapy. Who'd of thought that orchids could' ve become part of our life keys yet there being so many other factors/ reasons for influencing such a passion.


    Applause for Cathy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I was very surprised when Bruce contacted me. I just wanted to thank everyone. I really never thought I would be awarded for doing something that encompasses orchids and good friends. Again from the bottom of my heart thank you. I hope to respond to each of you personally.
