Ch'ien - welome to the CP forum. Glad to see you finally arrived.
Remember the lunch we had after the last BACPS meeting.

Am looking forward to a visit to your greenhouse at the school. We
should contact you directly soon to arrange a suitable time.

I don't know where to find the book but I will check with some of the
stores I usually get orchid books from and will let you know.
