    Best wishes,
    Rob

    I'm starting to think that orchid growing can be very dangerous to one's health. Who'd a thunk it??

    You could just sit there and whine like I do. This usually gives the results you're looking for. hehehehehehe.
    The OH is busy getting plants together for the Master Gardener Sale, so I have to watch that he doesn't steal any of my orchids for his sale. I'm hobbling off now to count my orchids. Get better soon Larry.

    Wow, I hope both of you guys get back up on your feet very soon ...
    If I were you I would completely milk the situation to get some orchids as gifts from my loved ones, orchids are proven to help for broken bones ....
