    Default Galeandra sp.

    Coincidence! Here's a pic of another Galeandra. I got this from Tropical Orchid Farm - they have no ID, except that they are pretty sure it's not baueri. This pic is of the first set of blooms - it is currently on a second batch off the same spike.

    That's a nice one. Galeandra are sweet endearing little things. It seems to me unlikely that we'd have two blooming in this community at the same time, but perhaps more people have them in their collections than I thought? I sure haven't seen them around; the only one I've ever seen in person is the one I own.

    Nice to see you here Komi/Ki, BTW. And what's up with the 'Mob Boss' thing? Did I miss something funny over on the ****************** forum?

    Yes, you missed a bit of fun on the dark side over there.

    I was the only Mob Boss among those who posted on the thread, even though I was hoping for another one so we could Go to War.

    Ah. I did actually drop by for that exchange (although I must have missed the Mob Boss discussion). I had tried the test; I am *apparently* an 'Ayn Rand Ideal'. This pissed me off, as I find Ayn Rand's theories to be entirely bankrupt, both morally and logically.

    Ok, sorry to totally derail this thread before it even got underway.

    Rock on!

    Nice pic. I think I have one from that genus. maybe....never bloomed or I missed it if it has...then again...maybe not. OK I have officially lost it.

    Nice pic!

    Nice Pic, but I'm contributing to the derailing I'm afraid...

    You are a WECF--Wacky Emotional Constructive Follower. This makes you a candle burning at both ends. You work until you drop, and you play until you can stand to work again. You have so much enthusiasm that you can find it hard to control on your own, and you appreciate the guidance that channels your energy and lets you be your best.

    In a relationship, you require lots of attention and support. You often over-contribute and end up feeling depleted and cheated. You may benefit from more time alone than you grant yourself.

    Your driving force is the emotional support of others--especially affection. You can run on empty for miles if you have positive energy behind you. Without it--as it occasionally must run dry--you are depressive, listless, and difficult to motivate.

    You need a lot of affection. Get it any way you can, but never at the cost of your self-respect or well-being.
    DAMN!!! Right ON!

    Well I just tried the darn thing and here is what it said about me...LOL


    20 Questions to a Better Personality





    Wackiness: 50/100
    Rationality: 20/100
    Constructiveness: 40/100
    Leadership: 50/100

    You are an SEDF--Sober Emotional Destructive Follower. This makes you an evil genius. You are extremely focused and difficult to distract from your tasks. With luck, you have learned to channel your energies into improving your intellect, rather than destroying the weak and unsuspecting.

    Your friends may find you remote and a hard nut to crack. Few of your peers know you very well--even those you have known a long time--because you have expert control of the face you put forth to the world. You prefer to observe, calculate, discern and decide. Your decisions are final, and your desire to be right is impenetrable.

    You are not to be messed with. You may explode.



    Hmmm? Wonder if they are right....whahahahahah!:lemmetell
