Hey Titania,

I take it you know that I'm the subed for this entry, so I'm going to dispence with all of the normal intro stuff and get straight into things.

(also, I still can't spell 'grammer', so I'm trying to avoid using it)

I use this thread to post notes on what I've changed in the entry and to ask questions about things. If you look at most of the other entries I've edited, you'll see a similar thread and I find that this approach to things works quite well.

If you have any questions please post them here. BTW, I've posted to that Journal entry redirecting people here.

Spelling, grammer, GuideML and style checks complete.

I'm waiting on Anna's reply to my query about those links and pictures, apart from that, everything's fine!

(Then again, it is late at night...)

Amazing, really - if someone had told me two years ago (almost), when I joined h2g2 that I'd be writing articles, I wouldn't have believed them!

...especially considering that English is a foreign languange!smiley - biggrin (to me, that is...)

This h2g2 addiction is almost a bit embarrassing... sometimes, when I come across something interesting, the thought 'this would make a great h2g2 article!' pops up in my head...smiley - weird

...and if I know that it really is a good idea, then I feel bad if I don't sit down and write an entry on it - it sort of itches in my mind, asking to be written...smiley - bigeyes

One of the most astonishing things I've ever heard an Englishman ask if we always have this rainy summers in Sweden, because in England the weather is much sunnier...

...I never did believe him - especially not since the rainy weather mostly seems to be coming from the direction of the British Isles!smiley - smiley

Hmmmm... has anyone suggested an umbrella smiley?

A very good point! I suppose the rain has run out by the time it gets to Sweden smiley - smiley Have you been along to the h2g2 Smiley Ideas List at A651935 to suggest the umbrella?
