Thank you all again for such kind words and warm greetings.
Plantakiss...I will be in Alexandria. So yes...I will be a Virginian. I'd love to meet with fellow CPers in the area. I've met Phil, Don, and Bill...wonderful guys. Don was a great inspiration to me while I was a youngster growin CPs.
Steven...there is a Sarracenia cultivar named after me. It is actually a purpurea hybrid from Citronelle, Alabama. It is most likely purpurea x alata. But in that meltingpot it can be so many things.
Glider...N.mirabilis x khasiana is the hybrid referred to as N.'Manny Herrera'. It was the first Nep hybrid I ever made (along with Clyde Bramblett). I was about 14.
Thanks again all.
