    1. Sorry, Benjamin, I misspoke about the blogathon. I was reminded that we had a cutoff date a few weeks ago, which I had forgotten about. (I guess I became overly enthused about “Charade”.) Apparently other people were refused late entry and it wouldn’t be fair.😦

      Again, my apologies. I did, however, tweet your post and I think it did get some attention.
