Thank you for your letter. I am glad that amidst my main thrusts, my subtle
requests to please join and share within our wonderfully benign, positive
go-ahead, thoughtful, kind, generous community have fallen on your fertile
Antipodean ground and that of your good friends. I hoped my evangelising
would help all the good people in Aroid L become good Members. So, there
will probably be an interlude before any further rallying calls to wait for
newcomers to Aroid-L. Regarding your last sentence, I grow living things
and disfavour taxidermy. I put this on Aroid L in which you have richly
dialogued as an accolade for your enthusiasm. The Plant Mart which I hope
will greatly enable Members with their Collections will begin in the next
interim July News.
Best Wishes & anticipating my Welcome

| I'm mentioning all this just to say that you might just scare people off

| As I said, Please don't be offended by this email as it is not meant that
