This week's title is Cheers to That! Clockwise from upper left: Statue of a knight outside a castle, closeup of a glass of red wine against a warm, sunny background, a Scottish town with snow-covered hills in the background, a piece of beachwood with ear-shaped fungi, a snippet of an old book hinting that the proofreader is tired, yellow primula in bloom, a china plate with floral pattern, and a wide-angle view of the church of St Emilion against a blue sky dotted with clouds.

The weather's changeable these days. At my house, there's, 'Quick! It stopped raining! Take the dog out before it starts again!' In Scotland, Paigetheoracle's endured ice and flood in equal measure. Tavaron's busy spotting early flowers in Austria. FWR outwitted the weather by heading south. (He sent us pics.) Willem's making the most of the warmth of southern Africa by staying very busy on expeditions. (He'll get back to us soon.)

Our moods are changeable, as well. On the one hand, the planet's still spinning. On the other, the problems are enough to make our heads spin. Since we can't wave a magic wand and fix everything, we do what can: we notice things. Thanks to everyone who sends in their observations, their creativity, and their thoughts. It is much appreciated.

Do we have humour? We do. Some is old and involves banana peels and frustrated proofreaders. Some is nostalgic and will test your knowledge of Gilbert & Sullivan lyrics. Some is needlessly researched. Just be nice and laugh politely, please: it is the goal of h2g2's cartoonists to be tolerated. We ask no more of you.

Our novella-ists, however, want more. They want you to read. They want you to get excited about their plots. Okay, four of them do. In my case, I wouldn't blame you if you said, 'What plot?' I assure you that this week, in my story, something actually happens. Whether that something makes any sense at all is a question the kind reader will hopefully not ask. The other stories are moving along nicely. Go and appreciate.

Sun, rain, or snow: have a great week, wherever you are. And remember: keep your eyes and ears open and your recording devices handy.

Quote of the Week: The existence and validity of human rights are not written in the stars. A large part of history is therefore replete with the struggle for those rights, in which a final victory can never be won. But to tire in that struggle would mean the ruin of society.
