    True but false, I buy an awful lot off Online Auction site but am trying not to even open the web site as I am broke LOL

    TPBM is desperately trying to work out which orchids like which conditions for winter from their collection.

    True! I am in the process of actively moving things around to brighter windows and looking up temp ranges to see what my thermostat should be set at here next month. I need a light meter... I actually bought the book Growing Hardy Orchids as well, it is time to start growing things that can survive the climate up here, which means bogs in pots. Cypripediums here I come!

    TPBM has flown aircraft before!

    False-but always wanted to when I was younger.

    TPBM has crazy weather going on where they live-80s and hot one day, 60s and rain the next.

    True!!! Was having a picnic with friends when a storm cloud came and drenched us!!! The worst part was that it watered down the wine

    TPBM is loving their weekend!

    True, now any way! Have a day to regroup and get ready for a busy week.

    TPBM has a dog guest at their house while their owner is away....

    True! I am into goldfish as well, and have had several aquariums--kept gving them up when I was shipped overseas. I have a small aquarium now....I think its about 45-50 gallons, but there's nothing in it right now. All of my fish got sick not too long after I got a new goldfish from the store.

    (Cool about the garden, I grew up in the country in Texas and we grew A LOT--canned a lot too. I still have nightmares about shelling peas for days on end. Havent grown in a couple years though.)

    TPBM has lived a significant amount of time outside their country of birth.

    True, I was born in France and I have lived in the US for 18 years.
    which is "a significant amount of time"

    TPBM plays a musical instrument on a regular basis.
