That time of the year again - Gazette Issue 3 - 1424 S.R.

It almost took me by surprise this year, but in the weekend of 10 and 11  of March there will again be the dreaded clock fiddling to be taken into account! Starting time indications have now been corrected where needed. From March 11 until Saturday March 24 there will be a 4 hour difference between our regular time ((which is UK time)) and the clock called Servertime. After that it will be 5 hours difference again. That is.... up to and including November 3rd! But you'll get another warning from me by that time.

Meanwhile, our mucisians have an new instrument to play with (and on): the fiddle! I've already heard it play at gatherings and ofcourse I've tried it myself as well. It is a nice addition, but it will take some time to master it fully. We hope, that the maker of one of the most important tools for musicians, Master Digero of "Maestro" fame, will find the time to update his tool.

Last month I announced a new member of the editorial staff: my sister Yola Plumblossom. Readers may find that they have not seen any sign of her yet, in print anyway, and here is why...
