And The Winners Are...
This was a much more difficult judging task than I anticipated-because the entries kept, chronologically, getting better and better.

Here, in reverse order, are the 3 winners: Bravo, bravissimo to each of them, and great good wishes to all the rest of you who made this so damned interesting and such FUN!
