Second Prize, $50 Gift Certificate to Flasks by Chuck Acker, goes to PRACTICALLY OSTENSIBLE!!!!

Congratulations to you both!!! You also deserve an extra :clap: because the 2 of you are the ones who got every answer correct! Woohoo!!

Oh my gosh! Thank you. I am so bogged down by finals (one down, four to go), I have not been keeping a close eye here; what a spectacular surprise to take a study break and come back to this! Thank you so much; now I can take study breaks looking at things to get at Mr. Acker’s. Also, congrats to practicallyostensible on getting everything right too. Thanks again; I promise I will send pictures when I get something. I need to get out of finals before all that though.

You and I both, I am in the middle of midterms. Good luck on the exams!

The laws now, but I too have had a circuitous path. I did my undergrad work as a mechanical engineer. While there I also got minors in philosophy and religious studies. Oddly enough, I did most of my work with Islam as well. For most of that time I studied under a Prof. Sachedina; he does a lot in the field, but his major interest now is Islamic bioethics, so I got to learn a bit about that. I really enjoyed it.
Congrats and good luck again. I think it is back to Administrative Law for me. Good night.

I must apologize for my recent absence; life has become very hectic.

I wanted to let you all know that I purchased a huge compot of topperi from Chuck with my gift certificate from April. If I can find some time, I will post a picture.

Now, I have a bunch of repotting ahead of me.

Thanks to all of you, but especially the sponsors!

Finally!

Well, after much deliberation I FINALLY used my gift certificate. I settled on Phragmipedium wallisii 'Rapunzel' x kovachii 'Tupac Amaru'. I'm ecstatic. THANK YOU SLIPPERTALK!!!! :clap:
