Hot in the Summer
May has drifted by and now where smack into the start
of Summer- hope everyone is enjoying the long days.
Last month was a busy month on the Blender, as you can
see by the wide selection of Front Page Picks as well
as by reading over last month's Blender Board comments-
we seem to have the making of a soap opera or two in here
This month we're featuring another a ramble by a
Blender regular, a response to last month's semi-anonymous
Hope you enjoy this month's issue. And if you enjoy it half
as much as I did putting it together, then you will have enjoyed
it half as much as me. Or, err, something.
