Well WTM started the "let's be nice to angels" and he kept that up for about 12 minutes I think. And DQ started the "let's all get a new avatar". Well, he didn't actually say so, but he emailed me a new one. Quite a sweet little penguin isn't it?

@Gwendolen, that is a cute little penguin - looks like it's studying the webcam very intently!

:lol: And miss out on the birds quizzes? Nuttin' wrong with my bird book. But it says "...Southern Africa" not South Pole. Hey, I've never been there. I'm sure I couldn't even tell the pen-part from the guin-part if I tripped over one. :lol:
