Here comes the November edition of Winamop, right on time
(well, only slightly delayed) and packed with good stuff.
Next time it'll be the Christmas edition and I'd like to
make that a bumper one, so let's have your high sugar high fat contributions,
(or organic high fibre if you prefer). I'll drink to that!
Maybe it's a little early to start drinking yet?
Oh well, back to work, and here we go with the November's
fare. It's certainly going to be hard to beat.
Martin Friel has been busy writing another chapter of his
story When The Traffic Lights Stopped. We've now reached Chapter 8 in

don't worry, we always learn a new word from Channie and this time it's
"Levigate" which means "to reduce something to a fine powder or smooth paste"
(I'm not counting Yerk and Zonk).
That's all for now, but there's no time to dilly-dally, we
need contributions for the Christmas edition! The e-mail button is at the
bottom of the page.
Until then I wish you all you wish yourselves, and if
you're thinking of buying me socks for Christmas I take UK size 8.
