Wonderful Prizes! Great to see all the varieties of the Bernard Bee!
I tried to check the journal, but the link seems to be broken.

Alas not for me... Never mind, some sort of glitch on my laptop probably.
Later: Now it works :D Thanks very much!

I also enjoyed 'Keeping it brief' too, particularly due to my own connection to the graphic arts! Thanks!

You must have written CVs. Write one that would make you want this dragon.

I think it is along the lines of:

Lady Pinky Snuffler is a 3 year old hen with good egg bearing hips and all her own teeth. She is excellent with children but should not be kept around soft furnishings without a bucket of water on standby.
Currently semi-irregularly working on the 2010 and 2020 Yearbooks- 2019 is ready to go!

Match.com is an online dating site - so people give, er, 'descriptions'* of their attributes** in order to attract possible dates from their desired demographic: people with similar interests, musical tastes, political views, a pulse . . .




* many of which are not strictly accurate - suffice it to say that many would fall foul of the Trade Descriptions Act! Although, many of them are very funny and some of them are even intentionally so . . . :wink:

** there's a great deal of selectivity that goes on here: 'full disclosure' is definitely not the name of the game . . . think of that estate agents photo of the nice little fisherman's cottage that, when viewed from the other side, was yards away from a sodding great nuclear power station! :mrgreen:
