Congratulations to John and Jean Burgess

This might not be the right forum but I’m sure a lot of other Orchid
members will bear with me for using this list to congratulate Jean
and John Burgess to their Diamond Wedding on the 24th of June 2006.
John has always been very helpful and resourceful to the Orchid
community, for which I would like to thank John. And happy and
thankful thoughts also go to Jean, who has more than tolerated
John’s involvement in the Orchid list. A big threefold HURRAY and
best wishes for many more years together.

Many more years of happiness to you John and Jean! Congratulations!

Ah John and Jean,
You little devils! Here’s to the next 50!

Love and best wishes from Lisa, (tomato plants are now officially
taller than I am), Topanga, CA USA

In the lovely place of Mapua, may you celebrate many more!

G’day; Jean and I would like to thank all those who sent emails
congratulating us on staying together so long. One person wanted to
know the ‘secret’. It is nothing special;

  1. Never sleep after an unresolved quarrel.

  2. Never use or call unpleasant names - they will return to haunt

  3. Share… No ‘yours and mine’ It’s ours.

  4. Keep tempers in check, no throwing things or striking, either.

  5. ‘We are ONE’

Cheers for now,
John Burgess; @John_Burgess2 of Mapua, Nelson NZ
