    I never would have thought that the answer is ginger. But now I know it and I am a little bit brighter than before ;-)

    Just the best for you, David
  • Cees Kuijs 05/06/2007 10:40

    Now, that`s a surprise too me, John. Never thought it could be ginger. Clever contest you`ve made :-)))

    Sorry I missed the contest. I've been preparing my chorus for Karl Jenkins Requiem concerts, the first of which occurred tonight and the next will be tomorrow. Also preparing for a trip to the mainland on holiday, and we just found out that our chorus is invited to sing the Requiem (with other choruses) next January in Carnegie Hall, and had to get started planning missed lots of pix. Incidentally, our shakuhachi player for the concert is Riley Lee, a Texan who now makes his home in Australia--the first non-Japanese grand master on the instrument. So what has this to do with a little bitty old rose? Nothing. But it is a nice looking little fellow.
