	Forgive me, Celia, for I have sinned in killing BATIK at least
five times.  I have tried it in two gardens in this state and have never
had it last more than a few months.  Needless to say, I don't try to grow
it anymore.  Unlike HONKYTONK bLUES, I have given up on BATIK.

	In the Louisiana category, I have managed to kill TWIRLING
BALLERINA three times.
