Hi Ugi, I've added that for you (and also a link to "green") if you can think of any more for this Entry do post them.

I (and other Curators) don't normally get alerted to posts at entries, I merely saw the title of this thread on your PS and came to smiley - lurk

smiley - biggrin

If you wish to point out other links going begging please do so at EF: <./>feedback-editorial</.> start a new thread for each entry and the Curators willsmiley - run to do your biddingsmiley - biggrin

Please remember to post the A-number inside your post as well as in the title of the thread because then that gives us a clickable link.

smiley - cheers

Hi GB!

Thanks for popping past! Are you able to make other minor adjustments, or simply keep links in order? I just wondered because there are a couple of minor corrections to this entry which I would have liked to make years ago but didn't know how - the are mentioned in the last post of the "Madeiran independence" thread. One is a slightly incorrect use of the word "independent", and the other is an incorrect grape variety.

Is this the sort of thing curators can fix, or is there another way?

smiley - cheers and I owe you a smiley - stiffdrink already for the BoP link!

I can fix anything (ooh, the powersmiley - winkeye) except the bar at the top (classifications) which require the Eds. I will deal with this but I have to report changes to the Curator forum, so everybody is protected. If you want to outline exactly what you want changing I will insert (copy & paste) and do remember to tell me what to remove if incorrectsmiley - ok

I've correct the name of the wine and "an autonomous region" if you'd like to check they're correct smiley - smiley

Superb GB! Just what I had in mind. I've been kicking myself about the grape bit for about 5 years now!

You really are handy to have around ... you must come to smiley - tea more often!

Have a slice of smiley - cheesecake - it is Friday after all.

PS, I guess the mention of smiley - cake could have a link here: A765993

There's no recipe for Madeira cake as such, but it is a fine page of smiley - cake recpies.

Ummmm.... smiley - cake

What a fine plan!

Everyone should get Madeira smiley - redwine + smiley - cake on a Friday afternoon. It would ease you into the weekend so well!

You won't believe this but my son had domestic science today. He arrived home with a box full of sponge cake. OK not quite the Maderia I was lusting after but a slice went down very nicely with a smiley - tea
