    I checked the Ratcliffe website today and it's down :( . Paul and Mary, I'm really saddened that you guys have to go back to england. I hope the transition back home is smooth. And I hope you two still post on here even though you will be very very very far away from the home where you two should be.

    PM or email them, Brian - I'm sure they still have plants! They're planning on being in Florida until the fall I believe.

    I have an email address for Paul if you need it (but I may not have access to it until tomorrow.)

    Is there anything that the orchid community as a group could do to pressure someone in the government to examine the case and realize the idiocy of the situation? I would think it naive to ask a congressman/senator on my own and expect a response, but if enough people made noise, we might be able to get heard?

    Probably not with this administration.

    Paul and Mary are still taking orders -- I just placed one, and they should be here later this week. I'm sure the Ratcliffe folks will appreciate as many orders as they can get now that they have to close their business in Florida.
