Thanks, Marie

Yes, made a right mess of that, di ba? I have now edited so all the names are in English, rather than mixing them up.

Kalachuhi,  I used to collect a lot of kalachuchi when I was little to play takyan with my friends (sipa takraw or sepak takraw in tagalog  ???).  Oh btw, Sipa (kick)  is a National Sports in the Philippines .

Facebook doesn\'t allow you to post a link to that particular page in your account.  We don\'t have \"permission\" from them to do so.  Try posting the pics separately or using a different album link that is available to the public, like Picasa.   :)

Hi Jack, it depends on the FB account\'s access settings. If the link was for a post set to public then all can see it. If set for friends only then you must be on their friends list. Any other setting and no access. God Bless...

Thank you...God Bless...

Steve,

You may be right, but were you (or anyone) able to see the pictures?  I tried and was blocked, hence my statement about not having access.  

I\'m aware of FB settings, but if your account is set up so that the general public can access your account, you are in for a big surprise when some hacker grabs your personal info for nefarious purposes.   ;)

You can set access levels either across the board or on individual items.

Understood...  but the question was and still is, was anyone able to see the orchid photos?  No one has responded to that.   ;)   :)

Just tried it. Nope. It must be restricted to their friends only. Them changing the picture album access to public will correct it. The trick however is to get them to do that. I, myself have mine restricted. God Bless.....

And that\'s as it should be for anyone who has FaceBook, especially in light of the revelation recently that their entire database had been hacked.

The best thing would be for le0n to download Picasa, free software from Google.  With Picasa you can create online albums to share with whomever you want.  Even \"guests\" can view them, if le0n sends the link.

le0n, you out there buddy?  Hello le0n!   ;D

ooooops, didn\'t have the number lock on.

Jack,

Leon is a mate of mine who lives Davao way. He has been/is sick
and has been laid low for the last few weeks with a virus. I suspect
he will be up and running soon.

Graham,

I deleted the errant post.   ;)    If you get a chance to speak with Leon, give him my best.   

Here are two links that everyone should know about as they both make it easier to post photos and albums:

Picasa is a free program made available by Google I use it to create photo albums and store almost all my photos as backup.  http://picasa.google.com/  It\'s the best photo album program I\'ve used.

The other is Photobucket.  http://photobucket.com/  I use Photobucket to store and create links for individual photos for posting on the Forum.  It allows me to create code links that convert to clickable thumbnails, and full-size images.  The photos are stored online allowing us as members of the Forum to see photos linked to albums you create. 

Share these with Leon for me Graham. 

Thanks Mate!

Have you tried vanilla growing yet?  Vanilla is a orchid although it needs hand pollination to seed.  The Mexican variety has the best flavor although the madagascar variety is more common in Phil\'s.
