Thank you very much

I think, if there is a deserving runner-up, I might pass on my prize to them. As CH said, it is not really intended for the experienced person.

Look what I just got from a postman :-)



I'm located in Germany and the book was sent from England, so I guess European winners can expect their books very soon.

Thank you for the book!

Seems the postman forgot that little country in between England (North Sea) and Germany
