WOW!  Awesome, Jan!  I do a small Santa table each Christmas and even that takes most of the day.  What a lot of work, but it is fun though, I hope.

You asked for it!!

Last year we did 3 large displays - Work All Day (factories), Party All Night (Downtown), and Season's Bay.  The first two are North Pole exhibits so we can get away with anything.  The Season's Bay is the New England area about 1910 but we are pushing it a little with the roller coaster which wasn't invented until the 20's.  We also did some smaller displays, one of which I have sent.  It is called Let It Snow and all the buildings are related:  Snow Globe Factory, Instant Snowman Factory, Paper Snowflake Factory, etc.  We even designed a construction site in Work All Day and an underwater marine aquarium in Party All Night.

Interested to see what you think.

I am sure your list is very long.  I have been amazed how much you have gotten done over the last 2-3 years.

By the Christmas house, do you mean our insane village displays?  We have finished two full large (6 x 8 ft) displays, one smaller (4 x 4 ft), two small (2 x 2 and 2 x 4).  Now we are finishing up the largest display (5 x 12 ft).  Lots of details to work on after we get the overall finished.  Our series of open houses will run 4 days from Jan. 10th until the 14th.  We try to sign up for the January tours rather than those before Christmas.  Makes life a lot easier to get it all finished when we have the three weeks my daughter has off from teaching to work on them.
If you are interested, I will send a couple of pics from lasts years displays.  One of those received a 4 page spread in the last Village Delights magazine.  My daughter was delighted to be so honored.

Good idea. I will put this on my list which is at the moment a bit long but I will get to it soon.
PS how was the Christmas house?

Hi Bob,

As I said, I have not been working in the TWiki but just visited it.  I am wondering why the TB letters from F through R have never been broken up into smaller groupings.  It can not be that there are not enough of them - Gs = 1293, Ls = 1411,  Ms = 1984, Ps = 1368, etc.  Is there a reason for these not being broken up?  They each take quite awhile to load.

Thanks,  Jan

Subject: [iris-photos] Good News!!

We have hit a new benchmark. The Iris Encyclopedia now has over 40,000 cultivar pages. The Iris Register I am told has 65,000 registered names and with unregistered, and botanical names included there should be no more than 80,000 names total, so we are somewhere between 50% and 60% of complete. It seems likely we will be up to that by this summer.
But we have approximately only 30,000 images. So you history detectives can help us find many images that are missing. It is a delight to see pages with 10 to 15 images.  So ultimately we could have over a million images. With now over 300 helpers it is my wish for the New Year that we can top this last year. Thanks again to everyone and have a great New Year.
Please excuse my cross posting the good news.
