Congratulations to Technogoth and JessieJess,
By way of explanation for my disappearance, I managed to hurt my back carrying shopping up the front steps and in the process of recovery had hurt the muscles on one side so much that my lower spine had started to curve sideways requiring me to be placed in traction to stop it from happening interspersed with non-traction periods of stretching and muscle building to recover to muscle back into doing its job properly. Unfortunately this situation did result in Jeremy Slupinski's entry not being dealt with fully as he did email me a copy of the work but I was in no position to deal with it.
I will be taking a small break from running any more challenges though at this point, until I am able to sit for substantially longer periods of time.
Thank you to all the entries and more importantly keep writing all of you.
edit: I have sent PM's to the two winners with regard the redemption of your GD-Net membership prizes.
