I keep meaning to tell the other two living here (home) of there new found forum fame but i dont want them stealing my thunder or hogging my spotlight and shall wait for July to roll in. Only just realised theres a Miltonia Orchid on the dining table - meant to be! BTW we not that mean really as reflected by this ridiculously tiny size of cake, one has to work through a list of ailments to ensure no unfortunate events occurred and leaves very little to work with interms of whats safe to eat without jeopardising Js health..Cheers All!!!!!!!!!!

    Hey, Matt - I'm so glad to see you recognized for all the work you put into making this forum such an interesting place to be! You and I have had quite a few exchanges and I've really enjoyed them. You know, I read your interview where you mentioned your disliking for administrative nonsense, but I have to observe that you seem to have extraordinary written skills of administrative vocabulary! (Not a flaw, whatsoever - just random commendation on the complexity of your writing style!)

    Keep the partying and the orchid culture separate and you'll continue to excel - and I hear you've finally got a decent camera - bully for you!

    Congrats to you, my friend.

    Thank you Branka and Maura. I do have quite a passion for nature, i sometimes think that it holds all the things one gets frustrated and irritated with, saddened and demoralised by with our race with and the society we know and live. Always remember amongst other things, that within an episode of a once popular tv sitcom with humans deemed as selfish with a competition to find a selfless act or deed with absolutely no possible direct or indirect trail back to the debated selfish issue.

    Natures attraction is empowered by the abscence of conditions, deceipt, greed,lies, use abuse with disappointment arising only because a 'plant' died because the gardener was deluded or misled or ignorant introducing it to a manmade environment. Such a shame more folk cant appreciate such simple pleasures there is so much nature and natural beauty at arms length alone and no games, power battles, vanity or materialism in sight.

    lol camera Maura. I tried to show off with the brassia shoot, shaky hand still an issue but i will read on. Strangely the english literature/language/writing has been nothing more than casual flirt or dabble and have had similar feedback in the past either passing comment or even a Manager requesting a second opinion or revamp for example, i guess it just was never meant to be. Not sure what happened there? Its been mirrored in speech too with references sometimes in banter or offensive, to being posh (upper wealthy class) if posh means nothing elsewhere (think beckham). I think i missed a left or right turn somewhere! but nowhere posh thats for sure.

    Thanks again, indeed it has been pleasure to meet you!
