Well done for the idea of posting frequent reminders. The number of votes was well up on normal.

Well done everyone especially to Tracker and Avi, but I think I should be 5th not 3rd as a couple of people got 8 point. Some really great work out there it is getting tougher and tougher

A big thanks to you all and still can't believe I got into the final voting selection let alone in the top places - totally gobsmacked. A big thanks also to my "mentors" Mike & Ken who give me great help and encouragement in this fairly new hobby for me.
