Just a few days ago, Ton and I announced our decision to work for
Ganoksin full time. The many emails we have received from you have
been heartfelt and supportive. Wow. We smile at each one that
lands in our mailbox. We know now that the decision was the right
one to make, and your notes of congratulations ring all the way to
We wish we could answer each and every email, but if we did, we
would never have time to continue the improvements to the Ganoksin
site that have been sitting on the back burner for many months now.
It has been our dream to have a video component on Ganoksin. This
is now in development and we will be able to tell you about this very
The Gallery Section, of where so many of you have shown your
creations is going for a major overhaul. We have many more ideas to
improve Ganoksin, and it is a dream come true to finally have the
time to begin the work.
We are also in the process of writing books in association with AJM
on topics such as the FlexShaft, Photoetching, Marketing and
Granulation, which have been gleaned from the Orchid Archives.
Many of you have asked how can you help. There are several ways.
You can make a donation at http://www.ganoksin.com/donate
Or you can visit our shopping site and purchase an Orchid pin.
A few Orchidians donate $10 a month as part of their regular monthly
bills. This consistency goes far in offsetting the computer server
expenses where all of Ganoksin lives. Remember, Orchid grows every
day, as your messages are archived and take up space.
With your support, we will do our part. Spread the word about
Ganoksin and Orchid with a link from your website or in your email
signature line and remember to mention Ganoksin.com when you teach
Thank you for believing.
