Default Huzzah!

Jerome, I got about halfway through (lots of chuckles along the way) before I had to return to day-job duties. Once I finish those, reading the rest of the new LUPO will be my reward! As usual, my hat's off to you for compiling all those nifty intervals & contest entries on top of the "regular" poems.

Thanks, Melissa. Glad you are enjoying, and thanks to the contributors for the Intervals and competition entries as well as to you for taking the tail-end Charlie slot. Looking forward to the new big Light.
In case anyone thought their devices were misbehaving on the 2nd March around 2.30 a.m. GMT,the LUPO site was down for what was supposed to be 20 minutes but seems to have been longer while the hosting site adjusted its digital dress or something. Not a problem over here, except for insomniacs, but late evening in the USA, so more people may have been inconvenienced.
And the LUPO gremlin, with its octopus-like escape abilities, is on the loose again in Issue 53, so if scrolling through the contents for Previous read Next and for Next read Previous.
