Wow, firstly I must thank you all for entering this, my first competition. I have learnt so much. I will no longer hold judges in such disdain.

Sorry for holding up the annoucements, but my Twitter flame has been dimming of late, due to life pressures and such. So I have tried over the last week to put more flame to my fame, with some noticable effect. Therefore I have decided to hold the proper Twitter annoucement till Sunday. Only tonight have I realised that it will be the 13th, but I'm still convinced that Sunday is a good day. It's the first real day off after my night duties, so it's a good day OK!!!

To much poems/love'>love, and many views.



Ok, now to the top 16. I didn't realise that I would have to judge after the top three so...
