A Randomly Selected Newspaper Headline:

The following is a randomly selected newspaper headline from many years ago:

Welcome to my blog. Please feel free to leave a comment. I assure you I always read and appreciate everything you have to say. Unfortunately, thanks to Blogger being, well . . . Blogger, I can not respond to comments nor leave any on your blogs. They simply disappear into the ether. Occasionally I will remember to respond in the next blog post I put up, but usually these good intentions slip my mind. So if you want to ask a question or get a response to any comments you may have please leave an email address or other contact method in your comment and I will get back to you.

I have also added a separate page to the blog for the Tower of Magic with a brief summary of all the rooms of the ToM in the one spot. The link is just below this and above the main body of the blog, or you can just click here.

100 Followers! Time for another Giveaway!

Who would ever have suspected my humble little blog would attract 100 followers?  Who ever it was, it sure wasn't me!  My 100th follower is Maija from Finland.  Welcome Maija and thanks for following.

100 Followers means it's time for a 100 follower giveaway.

To enter the giveaway: leave a comment on this post and include a number between one and ten in your comment.  I'll decide the winner by going over to random.org and use their random string generator to generate a random number between one and ten.  All entries that nominated this number will then go into the final draw to decide the winner.

Entries will close on 6th July.

I'm sure at this point you're all wondering what you will win.  Frankly, so am I!  I wasn't expecting to reach 100 so quickly and thus have nothing prepared to offer as the prize.  So for now, please consider it a "mystery prize" and I'll add a photo and details of the prize once I get organised.  It will be something in 1/12 scale and most likely have a magical theme.


  1. Congrats on 100 followers!!! My number guess is 4! Thanks!

  2. Congratulations, Alennka! :D

    Is blogger doing odd things with the layouts for you today?

  3. Hi Christine,

    I haven't noticed Blogger doing anything at all weird to me lately . . . which kind of makes me worry a bit. What sort of odd things are you encountering?
