Aloha friends,

Thank you Jane for your interesting anecdote.  Also happy autumn/spring to
all of you :)

I wish to add my voice in this now 'O/T' on a very matter very important to
me re: palm oil production.  For anyone who is deeply concerned about the
incredibly rapid loss of biodiversitiy in the tropics via deforestation I
would suggest doing some quick internet searches on how both legal and
illegal palm oil plantations tacitly sanctioned by various governments such
as that of Indonesia could destroy nearly every patch of forest on Borneo
(just one example) within the coming decade (and this includes the loss of
countless geophytic species).

P.S.  Yes I do owe some of my PBS list friends some private emails.  I Thank
you for your enduring patience as things are quite hectic over on my end. I
have not forgotten any of you.
