	Paul, thanks for your kind remarks.

	SCORPIO STAR almost wasn't!  I had tossed all of the stock the year 
after I had sent guest plants to the '94 Portland Convention.  I 
thought it just wasn't good enough, but when I went to Portland and 
saw it in bloom and got reports on its good rebloom there, I had to 
ask for some of the stock back.  I was amazed at how it had increased 
and how much stock was returned.  I just wish it would get in rebloom 
gear earlier.
