CHRISTMAS was bound to feature in this
issue. As usual, please inundate me with
captions to accompany the picture. The
best, (yes - it's just my opinion) will win a
delicious box of Prestat's very superior
chocolates. These brightly coloured boxes,
together with the scrumptious contents,
have become synonymous with good taste
- in all the best ways.

CONGRATULATIONS to Nina Gittins
who sent in my favourite for last issue's
cartoon (see below). Other close
contenders were: He Hathaway to make,
methinks, from Dave Robinson; Oh not
more bard play . . . I can see another Bottom
coming, from James Andrews; and Is
forsooth forcing? from Edward Blincoe.
And yes, there were eight To bid or not to
bid . . , and many more variations of the
theme. A couple of verses submitted are
below, including a 'To Sacrifice or not to. . .

They may call me the Nation's Bard

My plan to keep ruffing
Is now Much Ado about Nothing
As I seem to have kept the wrong card
To Sacrifice or not to Sacrifice
That is the question
And who doth make the last guess?
