    False. I wish I could develop a massive orchid collection, but there are so many orchids I'm unable to grow here.

    cheers,
    BD

    TPBM is a fan of miniature orchids!

    True - Not having a greenhouse, the miniatures help me to have a nice selection. Plus, it's so fun to hunt for buds!

    TPBM has some spikes being watched very closely for progress.

    Not true. After suffering from the intense heat from April to Aug for years, we have just installed air-con in our our sitting room. Before this we only had air con for our bedrooms. So I'm ready, but I dread to see the electricity bill for this month.

    TPBM believes the weather is turning weird.

    So true, so true. (Which puts me at odds with many folks I know. I would rather have chilly days than hot.)

    TPBM has orchids they need to put up for auction on Orchid Bids while temps are still conducive for shipping.

    Hi folks
    False I don't have any orchids up for getting rid of, as a newbie don't even know what orchidbid is

    [B]TPBM [B] has just finished university, landed a plum job and married a billionaire.

    True, which means I can buy all Paul's orchids. Yeah, right...

    TPBM is a furloughable Federal employee just starting the 20% cut in hours and pay. Yee haw. (Sorry, Paul, can't buy any orchids for the next couple months!)

    False! I'm retired, with a far greater cut in pay than 20%

    TPBM Wants a greenhouse, but there is no where to place it.

    True I do want a green house and no room.
    TPBM is buying the lot next door to me to make room for the greenhouse(which they have also quite generously offered to pay for). Bless you

    False. Ed, I wish I could, but see above remark about furlough. Maybe next year. What size greenhouse do you want me to put up for you?

    TPBM enjoys orchids more than fireworks. (Offered in the spirit of the USA Independence Day celebrations tomorrow!)
