Thanks everyone for your keen interest!
I thought this might be a fun project.
So we are already about a quarter full.

Oh, here is a hint that will help a BC when you make claims for multiple sections in a project. Just list them separated by commas, like 13,52,110 etc. (They can be in any order) This makes it easy to copy and paste into the assignment box in the MW.

Still hoping for a DPL.

Larry, you may have missed my 4 French claims and my question regarding footnotes on the previous page.

Yep, I was intent on getting the MW set up and the claims in late last night so didn't do a final scan of the thread to see new messages. Thank you so much for taking those extra four sections. I really appreciate that. I hadn't noticed them either until I did the word counts.

No on the footnotes. I didn't see any that I thought were important enough to include. If you feel otherwise, it is fine to include them.

Good to be off to a running start, except for needing a PL.

Mea culpa 8-)

So, any sections left that you would like?

Looking forward to your McDonald play.

I have recorded my first section. Question: for the source, can we say (for example) "from Jeaffreson’s Novels and Novelists" and then start with the description, or simply "Jeaffreson’s Novels and Novelists". I think this "from" is a good way of showing a source, if it's ok with you.

here is my first section then, I hope it's ok that I used the "from" for the sources. If not, I can redo those parts.

I thought, very interesting, as I didn't know this guy at all, then I checked on wikipedia and saw that it was Benjamin Disraeli :shock: I didn't know he was a Lord Beaconsfield LOL

Perfectly fine. I debated about putting that in the reading instructions, but didn't know if it would be acceptable. So, if you think it is fine, I will add it. Thanks. I value your opinions very much. :D

This is going to be a wild one, they say.
When your weather app says 5 weather alerts and 635 closings.
Everything is closed, but I may still have to go into work later.
Just swirling snow for now, but it will pick up and head up your way.

Stay warm and safe!
