  1. I would just like to say that I (finally) got around to renewing my SpcFic membership yesterday. And Robert Wainwright and I are both “New Talent” nominees.

    So much reading to be done!

  2. John Robertson says:

    GOOD LUCK FREYA – you deserve this for all the Blood, Sweat, and Tears

    You put into ALL your work – you are very talented.

  3. Elizabeth says:

    Great to have you back Angela – and congrats on your nomination! I will edit our list accordingly 🙂
