    Hi Marc! Nice to see you posting here. Chris will be excited to find another species Cattleya lover here. Sorry I missed you Sunday at the Redland event. But maybe I'll catch up with you at the Fairchild auction.

    hiya chris -

    thanks for the welcome. nice to find another catt species aficionado here. i'm trying to grow my collection judiciously, but there are so many fine plants available, wild collected, heritage, and line bred species, my collection is growing by leaps and bounds.

    maybe we can find some things to trade.

    the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

    the consumption of a thousand beers as well.

    Jon and Forrest are the kings of our little community here, BTW. So don't piss them off. Or do, it might be a fun spectator sport.

    Oh, I got my laptop back tonight. Yippee.
