    Default If I Were Bruce

    After all the "I'm not Bruce" posts on another thread, I thought it might be fun to say what we'd do if we were Bruce.

    So, to get us started:

    I'm not Bruce, but if I were, I'd share all the orchids in my greenhouse with the members of RV-Orchidtalk!! Why? Because they deserve it!!

    Oh!! Wait!!! Bruce already does that by giving us this amazing site where we can share our photos, knowledge, and friendship.

    I'm not Bruce, but if I were, I'd hope that all members would appreciate what a wonderful interactive environment they have to discuss their beloved and best hobby in the world, and how amazing it is to have so many kind and generous people together here at RVO.

    I'm not Bruce, but if I were, then I'd be so proud that y'all folks keep coming back for more fun and sharing and caring and well, you get the idea!

    Thanks to the real Bruce.

    If I was Bruce I would be very proud of myself for creating a wonderful site and being so involved. Words of encouragement are never far away here.

    I'm not Bruce, but if I was, I'd hope that each and every one that participates in this forum also makes a much needed yearly donation to keep this forum going . If I were Bruce, and again, I'm not, I would point out that said donation can be made very easily by going to the forum home page and clicking on "Donate". Again I'm not Bruce, he's too polite to make this plea, but I'm not!

    I'm not either Ischel, and I would go so far as to hope some would at least go further and subscribe if they can afford it. It's not expensive (less than the cost of an orchid), and really helps the site.'

    I know from experience how costly it can be to run a site like this, and for those of us who get so much back from it, it's the least we can do.

    Thank you for reminding us!!

    And no, I'm still not Bruce. I can however, aspire to be the kind of caring and giving person he is!!

    Lets see....first of all, If I were Bruce...I'd stand in the mirror for an hour and admire my killer blue eyes. Then I'd go put a hammock in the greenhouse and drink a margarita (or maybe a martini) and admire all the amazing plants until it got too dark outside. And then I'd take a class of interesting people someplace exotic...maybe Machu Picchu (did I kill the spelling on that?).
    And that's just for starts! lol And I agree, I'd feel very contented with myself over creating such a great website for people across the globe to get together, share their ideas and enjoy each others orchids.
