    Hello......My name's Diana and I'm from a small town in Kansas. I've also been a lurker for a week or two gathering ideas and looking at pictures. I've got a few orchids but am finding that I'm really drawn to the miniatures because they don't take up as much space. I have some really great windows in the house for plants so that's what I'm using right now but would love to have a greenhouse some day. I'm looking forward to getting to know you all and gather some information.......and, by the way.......I don't drink beer!!!!!

    Welcome, Diana! I'm primarily a windowsill grower right now, too, there are a lot of great plants you can grow that way.

    Welcome, Diana. Miniature orchids are a worthwhile pursuit.

    Oh come on Diana, everyone likes beer. Well, except for Marni, that is true. She prefers a nice menage a trois. ;)

    :D

    Wine, of course, is a suitable substitute for beer and those of us in California highly recommend it.


    Hey man ... we need the tax revenue!

    Hi Diane, welcome to the forum. Nevermind Forrest, he's tetched.

    “I like beer. On occasion, I will even drink beer to celebrate a major event such as the fall of Communism or the fact that the refrigerator is still working.” – Dave Berry

    And one for Dale:

    "We old folks have to find our cushions and pillows in our tankards. Strong beer is the milk of the old."
    -Martin Luther

    Geez, Forrest, you act like you own the place, or something. :D Maybe you should create a subforum for those who tend to be easily offended. I wonder what we could call it?

My husband is a farmer and I'm a homemaker!!! We're also very involved in church........hint, hint, hint, Forrest!!! LOL

    I have a male friend who collects antique toys. He's gay so maybe 'girl stuff' is right.
    I used to collect Cambridge glass and the Red Poppy pattern of Hall China. Now, I just collect dust... :-D
