Congratulations again to Clacky on his award, though I was a bit puzzled by the mag's comment "This award couldn't have gone to a nice man."

I think there is an 'r' missing - unless they thought Rob couldn't be 'r'sed.

LOL, I didn't see that!!
I think that any man who will balance with a whole load of cameras to get shots of the inside of a derelict mortuary deserves to be called nice.

I noticed that at the meeting, and the bemusement on Rob's face when I pointed it out to him had me screeching with laughter so much I think some people lost their hearing.

This lack of proofreading couldn't have come at a funnier point.

Sorry, Rob, I couldn't resist.

But there's nothing wrong with a bit more publicity for a very nice man's well-deserved award.

Love,

Caz

That's alright Caz, I'm sure Jackie didn't mean it

I know she didn't, Rob. But it needn't have been down to Jackie. She only submitted the article. Mysterious things can happen to one's words after that - as we know only too well.

Love,

Caz

We proof read as best we can. Any errors left in are an error and not deliberate despite some comments.

Any complains can be addressed to the editor, hopefully, in person!

Editor.

Sometimes, when you're too close to a project, you can't see what, to others, are obvious errors. I don't have a lot of skills, but proof-reading is one of them. If the editors care to send a troublesome text along to me, I'd be glad to give it the benefit of my (limited) talents.

Hi GM,

I have offered my services in the past, but what can you do?

No complaints from me though. It's not my writing or my mag under the spotlight. I just enjoy reading it (though not always for the right reasons).

Love,

Caz
