Lotar, Indeed. I have over a dozen "in the hopper" but I'm thinking of having a contest for submissions. Maybe an autographed Curmdugeophan icon or something for winners.

I like it!

And I'm glad to see you back on the blogosphere.

Question: Did you pose for the 2nd picture? If not, I'm wondering about the context of the photo you cut and pasted from. (grin)

[looking forward to contest...]

Some of the accents I've heard from American converts (clergy or non-) haven't been so slight.
