It’s hard to believe how quickly seven months pass. 2019 ended on the suck for me. My doctor decided that I was doing too well on my meds; so she took me off a some and changed up others. This fucked me up until February. I was in no state to write; much less be entertaining.  I got a new doctor and we have me “normalish now”. 2020 has not been kind to the world or my mental state. We’re gonna chat about that in the next couple of posts as well as get back to the stories.

I don’t like my Facebook page. I’m crap at posting and thinking about starting a Facebook group.

The Orchid Thief

John Edward Laroche (born February 19, 1962, in Florida) is an American horticulturist who was arrested for poaching wild ghost orchids while working for the Seminole natives in the Fakahatchee Strand State Preserve in Florida. The subsequent trial brought him to the attention of Susan Orlean, who wrote an article for The New Yorker and the book The Orchid Thief about him. After the events of the Orchid Thief, he shifted careers to Computer Science. Notably, he went on to work for both National Geographic and the Smithsonian Institution designing school-age learning tools and online curricula.
