Well we're coming up to your favourite time of the year, aren't we? Let's celebrate the Celtic New Year fittingly. You'll get the socks thing eventually - it even got me, for heaven's sake! And you've reminded me, I must subscribe to Interweave and stop trusting to being in the right place at the right time.

Does August 21 make you a Leo? If so, welcome to the lion's club!
