Family Ties

A female drill and her offspring. Doesn't that picture make you want to go, 'aw…'? Willem often has that effect on us. Even when he's telling us about weird plants and homely critturs, like that Porktown Prawn. Our h2g2 wildlife artist reminds us that we're part of Earth's natural family. Yes, even Your Editor and the Prof. All God's children got a place in the choir.

This week, Anthea's duck goes sightseeing, Rod's Green Man keeps on growing, and the ground hog does what the ground hog does. We're hoping for good news here. We feel we've earned it.

Amy brings us another interview, Awix has more cinema, and we're quizzing you about kings and queens. It's the real-life Game of Thrones.

Last week, I suggested an exercise for the Writing Right folks, and Freewayriding came through with a thrilling tale based on real history. He even added the artwork. What can we say? The Post family is talented.

Bluebottle's got news from the Flea Market. Go, writers! If you're suffering from the blues this winter, be sure to read benjaminpmoore's take on the subject. Many of us have been there, and we appreciate his words.

Remember, February means a new Create Challenge. This time, it's science fact and fiction. Has technology improved your life, or made it worse? Do you feel like Data, or Marvin? To get the ball rolling, there's a graphic-novel-type offering from me. You know you can do better, so go ahead!

We're sure this issue will cheer you, inform you, inspire you, and tickle your funnybone.
Enjoy your week, stay warm, and may the groundhog have mercy on us all.
