Hooray!!! Jeanette is brilliant, she knew that my pentagonal shaped mystery blooms are called Hoya. This plant has been around here for so long that I had all but forgotten what it was called and where it came from. The minute I saw this comment --> The plant looks like a Hoya to me.
Comment from jeanno43 - 4/28/05 7:19 AM, I remember it being called Hoya and I remembered that it came from an orchid show. Thanks Jeanette!
Of course I looked the flower up right away and it seems that their are over 200 different varieties of Hoya, some are vines like mine, some are succulents and some are woody shrubs, but all have beautiful flowers similar to the one's you've seen posted here.
If you would like to se for yourself you can go to the --> Hoya Pages. After seeing all the different types available, I so want more!
It seems that some of you still have questions about how and why to back up your journals so I am posting the links again that were the most helpful to me. Here --> Patrick has posted a new entry with some real answers from AOL. Here --> John Scalzi has posted his views on the recent incident if a journal being deleted without investigation of a complaint. Here --> Freepeace gives step by step instruction on how to back up your journal. Hope these links are as helpful to you as they were to me.
