Default Naming contest update

All,

Remember that contest I posted a new name for our society newsletter?
You all posted some neat names. The most unique, I think, and my personal
favorite, was Mick's contribution of Orchidelphia. Anyway, I sent the names
out to a small group of members and asked for opinions, without stating my
own preferences. And, I added a couple that were not suggested here, as I
said I would.

Only one person understood Orchidelphia without an explanation. These were
bright people, and if they didn't *get it* I can only imagine the reaction
of our octogenarians. Orchidophile got attention, while orchidophilia
sounded to some like a criminal activity, LOL!

One of the names I added came from this group by accident. It was
Orchidelirium, and it was included in an article about orchid boarding
posted by Reka. I think that's going to be the new name.

Still, for effort and originality, Mick is getting the cookies. Thought
you'd like to know!

Diana

Diana,

Then use "The Orchidelphia Experiment" instead and that will easily beat
Orchidelirium. People will definitely want to read The Orchidelphia
Experiment.

I love cookies. What's the next contest?... I'm ready.

Mick
