A lightning response from one online reader has pointed out (because they thought it was a great-looking plant) that the caption relating to the picture on the back cover of the issue is incorrect. In fact, the magnificent close-up is by Dave Toole of Aciphylla spedeni. Sorry about that.

WINTER QUARTERLY DISPATCHED AND ONLINE FOR MEMBERS

For a whole lot of reasons I've not been posting lately but the Quarterly was on time with dispatch from Kansas on December 20 and the issue online at the same time. As you'll see there's been a redesign of the cover and one or two mastheads.

This issue is a Great Lakes Special looking forward to the Annual Meeting in Ann Arbor and there's also an article remembering a trip that Barry Starling took with Boyd Kline a good few years ago.

Best Wishes for Christmas or your seasonal holiday.

Malcolm

SPRING ISSUE OF THE QUARTERLY

Despite being completely wiped out (with pneumonia) for the whole of January, the Quarterly is on track for dispatch from the printer on or around March 20 which means that many, if not most, North American members will receive it by Easter and the rest of us should get it pretty soon after. 

The proofreaders enjoyed it which is always a good sign!

I have to say, I don't think I could muster that kind of dedication, Malcolm.

  We are so fortunate to have people like yourself in the Society!

Impressive "stickability", Malcolm.  Well done.

We're very sorry to hear you have been so poorly and hope you are now feeling very much better.

Sorry to hear about your ill health, Malcolm, and I join others in thanking you for your dedication in spite of it all!  Hope you will be back to full health soon.

Malcolm,

 

Looking forward to the paper issue. Although an online version is very useful and has more options, I do like a something to touch with my hands! (But not the space it takes when filing it...)

 

Hope you are fit again now.  Pneumonia is not something to take lightly.

I came here specifically to mention how wonderful the current Quarterly is. You had me at Bhutan.

To everyone who has wished me well - so many thanks. I've not been checking the forum as I have been busy working on my presentation for the Ann Arbor meeting (and trying not to overdo it at the same time). Finally making sense of the thread I'm trying to weave through the whole thing - that's when it gets to be fun.

I'm really starting to look forward to it.

This saxifrage from last week as a little thank you !

Very best - Malcolm
