I have a verizon Palm Pixi plus which has the Mobile Hotspot with 2 GB included in my plan. So if I am not near Wifi, as this morning, I simply turn on the Mobile Hotspot on my Phone and log on. Works great, no problem and it is almost as fast as my Wifi at home.

Bree, it is a very pretty spotty, despite the small damage.

News of (and from Big Grin ) the weird. Kathy, that NOID Cym you sent South is opening and it is an oddball for sure. Of the first two flowers either parts are absent or fused. I'm curious to see what the rest of the flowers look like compared to the first two. Anyhoo, do you see Elvis here or maybe something religious? I'm thinking of charging for viewings. Hilarious! Thumb of 2011-02-02/Maypoplaurel/46c85a The photo is backlit and the flower is actually deep maroon with greenish edging.

Here are the two flowers open together. It's as if the flowers have no sepals? There is nothing on the rear side of the flower. One has a split petal and one has a single petal at 12 o'clock. Thumb of 2011-02-02/Maypoplaurel/fab28e

Here's the spike. There are plenty of flowers to come for comparison. Is this ringing any bells? Thumb of 2011-02-02/Maypoplaurel/a1ff58

Hi Laurel!!!!!
Oh man. Twilight Zone material fer sure. Keep it separate in case of virus. On the other hand, it may just be a victim of the rot that I had for 2 years!! I am wondering if it is this "Mini Rose", my vague label for this cym NOID.
