    I went down there today (took a day off from work). It is my first time to the show, I went down there last year, but only got to the sale area. I was so tired holding up my monster camera (a digital rebel + external flash), lighting wasn't so great, I will expect a bunch of thrown away photos. I then spent a long time scouring the sale area, came home with a load of minis.

    I should be down there around 5-5:30 tomorrow evening. Bruce is tied up until Fri morning, where'll I'll meet him at the show. Anyone want to grab dinner tomorrow (Thurs) night? My friend, Betsy, whom I'm staying with is busy until 9pm.

    Having fun in New York so soon? I thought you have to work on your stuff? I know of that bus, is that some kind of chinese bus line? My friend took that one to visit Boston and it was one hell of a scarry fun ride!!! Hehheheeee ... Not to scare you!
    I was at the New York International Orchid Show back in 2005. It was fun! (But I think certain orchid show in California is even bigger, heheheheeee ...)
    HAVE loads of e-veal FUN! And don't buy any more orchids if you can help it!

    Cheers. DocSpock.

    I do have lots to work on, but that's not going away anytime soon. And my migraine this morning reminded me that a day or two off wouldn't be such a bad thing!

    The bus is that scary Chinese bus. I'm fully expecting we'll tip over on the trip, but for $15 each way, that's ok. If I don't post by Sunday night, please notify my family how I died...

    I haven't been to the show since '94 when I lived down there. Rather than buying more, I'm contemplating packing a few distressed plants to give away, but they'll more likely end up in the salad shooter. I'd have to see some knock-out species to buy any more right now. I actually took in 3 new flasks last week, and I'm trying to finish compotting those tonight. Trust me, it would have to be something really killer for me to buy anything else right now. And it sounds like Qing already picked everything over!

    My E-VEAL camera is coming along, and I've charged the batteries. No one has grabbed on my dinner suggestion for tomorrow, so I'll probably find someplace cozy on the upper west side and read a good book not much chance to do that these days... So batten down, Big Apple...here I McCome!

    Julie,

    Me and my husband would like to join you for dinner. I got home around 6-7pm and I live on west 83rd st. PM me with your cell phone number and we will try to get in touch with you.

    Wonderful, Qing!

    I was hoping I'd get to meet you! I'll head up to my friend's at Columbus and 96th, drop my stuff, and dinner timing should be perfect!

    I'll PM you my cell number. Think of some place near you for dinner. I'm easy! I'll likely burn some time at the Barnes & Noble in your back yard!

    Can't wait to hear how your Neos are doing!

    Best,
    Julie

    4 of my 7 neos are in bud, and 5th one is just begining a spike. But I broke one of the spikes, leavig only one bud (yellow color), but luckly, this one has a second spike. Neo can start a spike by the end of the Fall, then the spike went into dormant and resume again in the next Spring. All these spikes started last Fall.

    Last night I saw, A MOON FOR THE MISBOGOTTEN with Kevin Spacy, Colm Meaney, and Eve Best. It was amazing!! We had tickets for the second row back on the front house left side. Another DO NOT miss production. I am looking forward to seeing some of you tomorrow at the orchid show. I plan to go over in the morning just after 11:00 or so.

    Until then, Cheers,
    BD

    I'm glad you're having a cool time in NYC BD. I am utterly jealous! :-)

    Have fun meeting the orchid talk gang, and take your camera!

    For those of you that have been to the orchid show already this week, how is it so far? What type of displays are there? I've never been to this one before :-)
