    Arrow Well.... Our Latest Winner!

    April was the last month of our Membership Drive contest, and unfortunately, nobody won...











    YAY!!! MORE FOR ME!!!!








    Ahem.... I'm fine now.


    Three members, MikeWA, scopinox, and newbie had one referral each, but none of the referred members posted the five required messages during April to make the referral count, two posting 0 messages, and one posting 1 message.

    So, since we really want this community to be about quality (which it is) and not just an increase in the member count at the bottom of the index page, (which is lame if that's the only thing going, which it isn't), I've decided to award this month's plant to the OrchidTalk member who I feel has made the most significant contribution to our community during the month of April.


    I'm sure all of you will agree that I've made the right decision, when I say that April's OrchidTalk Winner is.....

    No argument from this boy! Kev definitely deserves it after his trade trauma.


    Cheers,

    WOW!! Thank you! I’m honored! That’s so nice of you!!

    You mean I ain’t getting booted anytime soon?

    This really is a cool place. I like the people, like the talk, will DEFINITELY like a new plant. Can’t wait to see what you grow.

    I’m sure whatever you send - if you don’t change your mind - will be great. Thanks so much.









    That reminds me, I decided this weekend I really like Dens, especially small growers & just about any other small growing plant. I really don’t like floofy Catts. Not sure why I decided to say that now. Hmmmm……


    Just in case that wasn’t clear:

    Dens, & small things – yes, yes, yes, love ‘em, love ‘em, love ‘em
    Floofy Catts – Alert, Alert, barf, barf, yuck, yuck, gag, gag, not good, not good


    Thanks again.


    Let’s recap shall we?


    Dens & small stuff – yippy/Dens & small stuff – would trade my firstborn/Dens & small stuff – the chosen ones/ Dens & small stuff – they ROCK/ Dens & small stuff – better than sex/ Dens & small stuff- would walk a mile for/ Dens & small stuff – plants from the gods


    I really like these.

    I'm just kidding. I ain't fussy.

    Congratulations, Kev!

    Did you ever see the episode of that stupid show called "That 70's Show" where the kid DOESN'T want an 8-track tape player for his birthday and he says it so many times but his parents don't listen well and get it for him and say "well, you made such a big deal it was obvious that you really wanted it".

    Hmmm.
