More of Randy for VP

Lots of people are wearing Randy for VP buttons as Matt does but Jonathan is taking it to another step, he is wearing a T shirt that spreads the message of re-electing Randy.

Betty endorses Randy's campaign for ARBA vice presidency.    He is known to be able to get things done; whatever is needed, we just say, "Ask Randy, he'll know about it and he'll be able to do it".

Night Blooming Cereus Making An Appearance

Betty says, our Night Blooming Cereus plant has been with us for over 30 years.  Some years it blooms some years it does not.

The last time it bloomed was in August 2013.

After three years of absence, this bloom is extra special.

Not only it stays in bloom during the entire evening and night, it even stays in bloom in the early daylight hours.   This is unusual as the name suggests, it's a Night Blooming Cereus.

Randy Helps to Evaluate Belgian Hare Juniors


Lisa and son Cory (not shown) have several litters of Belgian Hare juniors.  They entered some in the competition and brought more for evaluation in the show at Watsonville.


Randy is always there to help, he and Belgian Hare breeder and registrar Samantha are looking over the juniors carefully while Lisa stands at a distance to observe.

Belgian Hare have long limbs and ears, kind of resembles the wild Jack Rabbits.   Belgian Hare is one of the oldest recognized breed in the ARBA history, alongside with the Angora (no distinction in English or French Angora until the 1940s while Satin Angora and Giant Angora were recognized in 1987 and 1988 respectively).
