Sorry Dorothy, the only tantrum I can throw is not orchid-related. But here it is:

What the heck is up with people in libraries these days? They talk in normal, loud voices when they don't actually yell. They allow their children to run wild all through the building, then call libraries "Child unfriendly" if told to keep their kids under control. They leave their cell phone ringers on LOUD, then seem unconcerned by carrying on conversations while utterly oblivious to those around them. They pull materials off of the shelves and leave them anywhere, with no concern for anyone else ever using the same item. We have truly become a society of people concerned only with themselves, with utterly no regard for others. As a librarian, I think I'm going to buy a cattle prod and use it on anyone who gets rude in my library. I am very, very angry with the public. I probably need a vacation.

I agree with you, John. I remember when you didn't speak above a whisper at the library. Today, so many people are so self-absorbed that they pay no attention to the folks around them...that applies to not only the library but at stores, doctor's offices, mall, restaurants...blah, blah, blah!

If we all just took an extra moment to think about how our actions might affect somebody else, the world might be a better place

Obviously I cant complain about the weather. But can relate to the rudeness of others. After all I do live in South Florida where they invented rudeness. I was standing in line at the local Walgreen's when a women walking up to the line noticed that she recognized the women in front of me. Of course they struck up a conversation and apparently she felt that this entitled her to jump in front of me and 2 others behind me. I asked the women if I and the others in line where invisible. All she did was give me a dirty look.

I feel ya'll on the rudeness . . .here in DC I'm STUNNED if someone says "please" "Thank you" or "excuse me"
as for orchids I'm doing my best to keep my hand full of little chids going on my windowsill. I think my Encyclia is mad me because it doesn't like the cold nights and low humidity. It has been working on a new growth for some time now and is SUPPOSED to be a spring bloomer but there ain't no signs of nutthin yet . . . . .

Dorothy, at 6'4" and about 235 pounds, I do pretty well just using a really nasty glare.

But a cattle prod IS in my future.
