  1. Sorry, but I have to say it. It is becoming a habit somewhere in the world to post Saturday challenges late in my European evening. Perhaps the person who does them could programme them to arrive at a normal time, it is possible I know.

      1. No thankyou. I knew I was running the risk of getting on the wrong side of someone but I am now 72 years old and am retired. I have operated on various web sites in my past life and I know what a stress life that is, and I could no longer stand up to the stress. I realise it is not easy.

      2. I’m not upset. I really do think it would be a great idea to have a European prompter. Even though it’s just a word, each person brings a different perspective that I think is pretty cool and culture does play into that more than most people realize. It creates a wonderfully random mix of words to have different prompters. I think it would be cool to have someone from Europe, Africa, Middle East or Central/South America. With Europe or Africa, of course, the plus would be the earlier time zones.

  2. Glad there are no hard feeling MNL and basically it would be interesting. I do not know where you are in the world. I am in Switzerland. If I were a few years younger, something like 20, I might jump at the chance, but at last I can relax and let the world do its thing. And now to move on. Mr. Swiss is now watching the TV and I have a book to read. So no more crashes today, unless I crash down somewhere.
