    Thank You All ! And now for my acceptance speech...........................On second thought even the cats left home as I was practicing it out loud so it had better wait. FUN FACT 1 Did you know that at the 1941 Academy Awards Greer Garson won the Best Actress Award and that her acceptance speech went on for over an hour! Ginger Rogers presented her with the Oscar and she finally had to take a seat.................Someone in the rear audience wrote Greer a note later which said................."I saw your speech tonight. Wish you'd been here". AL

    Congratulations, Al! I love your orchids, but also the bougainvillea. Do you keep it indoors all year long?

    No, the Bougainvillea's go outside from May to October for their 'vacation' on the east deck of the house. Bougainvillea's are a little more exceptional in the sense that they actually like a alkaline soil..........................AL
