I am pacing already while waiting to read it. To and fro, and fro an to... hey wait a minute, I am already pacing in the Exibition hall while waiting for a story from Edi........can I pace in two places???........I must pace and think on this for awhile.... perhaps I should go and wait in the corner somewhere quietly, instead of wearing holes in all the carpets in here. .....................

Becky: if you really REALLY want to meet Granny weatherwax try "The Sea and Little Fishes" in Legends (the one with Anne's "Runner of Pern" in it); or Google "The Turtle Moves"

OH I see my answer to the "Cracks the Whip" has gone missing during the computer black outs......

Aaaaah....what a shame it was a good one too something about getting back to work before the "Boss" saw me just hanging around pacing to and fro, while I was waiting for Becky's new article. Well I HAD better get back to the ole grind now too, before she sees that I am not at my desk...drawing away again............... (Cheryl)

For those who may be interested, I've been trying to find out if DVD copies of the induction are available for sale. No luck so far online but I did get a snail mail address for the SCI FI Channel, so I've sent a letter off today. I'll post the reply I get, but it will probably take a while. ::mutters, you'd think in this day and age.....::
