Will, that's a "looker" - - even if it is "retro". At 20 inches, would that 
be considered a Border Bearded then?  I wonder if it's a diploid (or 
reverted back to the amount of chromosomes a diploid would have).  Or if it 
is a tetraploid? It looks to have some nice RED tints in it too..

And thank you for the information on Sultan's Palace.   I sure do appreciate 
it.  :-)  It helped to refresh my memory.
