  1. Thanks Roland – nice to come by – you’re a few behind me so I’m doing my A-Z duty and having fun. For me the blue against the green doesn’t read so well?

    • Thanks Susan. I’m following a few A to Z writers from previous years and anyone that drops by… then drop in at random. Might have to re-think the colour scheme…or at least the links colour. Used red once but others had problems with than. White background doesn’t work with the Sunspot theme. [Not until May though).

    • Thanks for the Lite-ning visit, Alex. Very much appreciated. I’ve taken Aconite as a homeopathic remedy, but not the neat monkshood. As a mystery/thriller writer I acquired “deadly Doses: a writer’s guide to poisons.” toxicity is 6 so only a minuscule amount will kill a healthy adult. Death occurs in ten minutes to a few hours.
