Everytime I want or plan to go on holiday something always happens!!
Yesterday, we had planned on going to one province for the day to have a look at some Orchid shops...... My nephew in laws truck blew it's transmission halfway there......we came home with dampened feelings (At least I got two seedlings of the worlds biggest Orchid)!!
That little incident meant we had to take the truck into the workshop.... would take three days to rebuild the transmission...... END OF HOLIDAY as the wife has to go back to work.

Wow, talk about a long winter. I just had a vision of a slug with a tiny little spoon feeding birds!

My thing is that now that spring is here, the position of the sun is changing faster than I can move things around. I'm constantly trying to figure out who goes where and I'm totally confused with my ever evolving set-up. It takes me a couple weeks to get them all situated. Meanwhile some of my chids get in a snit when I've forgotten them for a few days. Oh yeah, it isn't pretty!
Also, I'm going orchid buying crazy again. Every spring! I have some coming next week and doesn't my favorite orchid greenhouse (1 1/2 hour drive from me) decide to have a spring sale next week!!!!!! Oh the irony!
Now here's a math problem for you. If you still have checks in your checkbook, doesn't that mean that you still have money in the checking account? Isn't that how it works??????
I'm a happy camper, honestly! Spring means new orchids! It doesn't get much better than this!

Default The daily rant

Okay I know there is a thread on here for ranting about mundane things that bug you but I cant find it so I am gonna start a fresh one!

I am ranting today about the amount of Phishing scam emails I get after signing up to a website called free stuff from a link on facebook, I get at least 4 a day asking for my information saying I have either won or am being gifted large sums of money, I am sick and tired of the stupid things! I sincerely hope tha people who are online nowadays do not fall for these but it makes me sad to think that people in desperate situations may just risk it in the hope it is real, I even got one asking me to take over 100000 to set up an orphanage or nursing home, how low can these folk go. GRRRRRRR

Okay thats my rant for today

p,s please feel free mods to merge this I know there is the rant thread out there somewhere.

OMG! I went upstairs and found that one of my new Phals got blown off the windowsill and into the toilet. I cant believe how fast I put my hand in the toilet for it.

Default Scam e-mails

Playtime, you only get 4? I get 20-30 per day and I have never signed up for anything. My favorites are the Nigerian scams and the penis enlarging pills. I am fortunate to have gmail and it puts all these scam e-mails in my spam box where it is easy to quickly scan them and then delete them. I have to at least look because once in a while a legitimate e-mail gets tossed in the spam box.
Anyway, as someone else said "there ain't no free lunch".
