Hello Soupers, well finally the results of the Text Talk contest are posted. I enjoyed judging them blind, though in fairness most were double dutch to me anyway.

Congratulations to all of the winners, and my thanks to everyone who entered.

My deepest thanks go to Susan for helping me with this very challenging contest, it was very difficult to judge and it is a good job we had translations otherwise I for one would never have been able to understand most of them.

There were the usual suspects that had nothing whatsoever to do with the contest.

Finally my apologies for the delay in getting around to judging the contest.

Don't ever feel that you have to apologize for being late on a contest, especially when you have much on your mind, David.

oh, my gosh, I just went and saw that I got a first place. Unbelievable. I had to go use a translator at google for nearly every word in it! Thanks so much to you and Susan. I am sure there were many others just as good as mine. Congrats to all. Luv, Andrea
