Before I get to winners and words.
It's fairly obvious that I am having a hard time getting things done here in a timely fashion. I know I've mentioned before that my life is rather fraught these days, and has been for some time.
Rebecca and I had hoped that by taking on the admin duties together, we could keep up. Sadly, her plate is as overfull as mine is these days.
I love Prediction, and I love doing this, but I'm offering it up to anyone who wants to take over, who believes they can keep up with it better than I have been able to. I simply cannot guarantee right now that I can be here in the timely fashion required.
That being said, I do not want to see Prediction die. If no one else can, or is willing to take on the admin duties, Prediction will continue here under the best care I can give it and I will continue to strive to keep it as current as my situation will allow.
Our winner this week is Antonia Woodville with Infinity 98: As always, Antonia, this is a beautifully woven piece. Thank you.
