Hello Sandy,
Sorry to hear you didn't get lucky this time with Pink Pele, but you won' t deter my determination...
As Keith Keppel said in his 2006 catalogue :"(... but for those of us with a gambling addiction, what better pastime for playing the odds?"
Have a look at this link about the odds at Lottery:
and you will see that, even with Pink Pele, my chances are far more better than the lottery odds :
"If one person purchases 50 Lotto tickets each week, they will win the jackpot about once every 5,000 years. "
Thanks for the tip about Pink Pele's pollen being fertile!
It will broaden the  field of research...
I still can't get over the colour of it's beard that scream to me across the garden and makes me use it . 
Regards to you too,

Yeah, 'Pink Pele' is fertile as a pod parent AND as a pollen parent.
And that is the best I can say about it. 
Of 10 seedlings germinating from a self cross, 8 were TBs... and they weren't just dogs, they were hounds!  They put me off yellows for ten years... and the end of the 10th year is in 2009.
Of the two remaining, both were IBs with nice colour, but they took forever to increase.  I actually still have one that increases just enough to stay alive.
Good luck with the crosses though.
