You've been busy, Karen, an impressive collection of updates indeed. Thanks for posting my review. I'll hae a go at the competitions for the books I don't have -- not sure if quite my cup of tea, but why not? Luckily for me I already bought the DVD in your competition after being recommended via my "boxed sets" post -- as your version is US only. I hope it is good, but I probably won't get around to watching my set for a few years.
Thanks again for all these updates-- you are incredibly productive.
