Hi Maggie,

John gave a great presentation yesterday at the Massachusetts Chapter of the American Rhododendron Society. Everyone enjoyed the presentation very much.

Hello Tim- and welcome!
Good to hear you enjoyed John's talk -  not that I would ever doubt his skills!  ;) 

Just such a long journey to tempt him over here!
