Dear George and list,

  I was glad to read about the success you're having with your night 
blooming cereus.  A friend passed one along to me last winter and I've been 
keeping it going outdoors once it warmed up here.  It has the strangest 
looking leaves I've ever seen.  Like a paddle cactus almost splayed out 
almost horizontally.  No sign of bloom on mine, but she told me it might 
take 2-3 yrs to get a blossom from the new sprout she gave me.  Is that your 
experience with it?

  My dad had the carotid artery cleaning out procedure done a few years back 
and had great results and no complications.  And he was in his early 80's 
when it was done.  All my best wishes to you for your procedure, George.
