This is the fellow who has been getting the publicity here. I went to visit him yesterday. He had no fear of me, but yelled if I got within half a metre of him, and when I offered my hand in peace, he bit me. Fortunately he is not that good at biting, and after we had got better acquainted, he told me that he was being kept prisoner at SANCCOB against his will. They were feeding him ok, and he could be persuaded to change his mind if a cute queen could be found.

Please be on the lookout.

Karen, thank you so much.
Whatever (according to BB): "You are correct but I don't want to admit it".
