    It is sad, but for the better.

    Hello everyone. It has been a while I know since i have posted, but I have been around. Just not as frequently. Mainly to keep up with PMs and things. I have been dealing with allot lately. First my snakes eggs hatched. I now have 5 baby snakes to get started eating. I should be happy this is my first successful attempt. Next I just got into Nursing school. I was on the alternate list. Again I am not as happy as I should be. I had an issue go over at work that could have turned ugly, but luckily it didn;t so that is a load off, but the kicker is after 5 and a half years of marriage and being together since 2000 my wife and I are calling it quits, and it has been a hard ordeal. It was come to by a mutual agreement and nothing is turning ugly. We are still friends and are not fighting. We know it is for the better. We both have met another couple that made us realize things about our marriage that we were in denial about. So I am not going into to much detail here. Just know if things work like they were ment to we all be more happier than our current situations.

    The bottom line is I want to stream line my plants. I will be keeping my nepenthes, sarrs and many of my orchids, but I will have allot of orchids and other plants I will be shedding for this transition. Many will be NoID orchids, some will be named, some will be sun-dews but do not count on all of them being IDed. I have not had a chance to go out and take inventory yet. I plan to do that shortly. I will be giving the plants away. All that I ask is that you pay for the shipping. I do not have a problem shipping multiple plants to one Addy, you get more bang for your buck and I can appreciate that. Just be mindful not to ask for EVERYTHING. There are others that will want some as well.

    So be on the lookout in the trading post for the offers. Andrew I want to apologize in advance if I inadvertently post something for free that you are selling. I will try to be mindful to check before posting.

    I'm sorry to hear about that Josh, but it's good (and rare) that you both were both honest enough with each other and with yourselves to talk about what was happening. Sometimes people grow together and sometimes people grow apart. Good luck.

    Sorry to hear about the troubles but sometimes splitting is the best thing to do. I hope it works out well for both of you.

    Hey Josh, was wondering where you had been recently. Sounds like things are going as best as possible all things considered. Glad it was civil. Good luck with nursing school! The excitement will come. My wife is starting her second year in nursing school and it's always an adventure with the clinicals and such. You'll enjoy it.

    So you hatched some baby snakes just to eat them?

    Good luck my friend.

    I thought the same thing the first time I read it lol.



    I'm glad that you aren't quitting Nepenthes and Sarracenia. Orchids are only in flower sometimes. Nepenthes look good ALL the time!

    Hey Josh,

    Just wanted to say sorry to hear about what's going on with you and your wife. I don't know the circumstances or the details but I know you guys got married for a reason. There's a good chance it was once the best thing in both of your lives. I hope you guys tried to salvage your marriage before giving up. It is very easy to give up when the hard times come but that is just a test of your bond and a period for you guys to grow closer to one another. Again I don't know the situation, maybe it is too far gone but I hope that you guys can salvage something and rebuild. Marriage is too precious to throw away!
