Welcome to this round-up of all things CBB over the past week.

We are sad and sorry to learn of the death of Pat Willimot from cancer. Pat will be missed by CBBers whether they knew her in the flesh or on-line. There is a notice by Lesley here with more details, and further posts in that thread carry tributes from people whose lives she touched.

* Gathering news:
The Winchester Group are meeting at Sealpuppy’s on Tuesday 10 July, in Scotland there are plans afoot for 11 August, and the Oxford CBBers are planning to meet on 12 August, with a suggestion for their gathers to become a regular monthly event.
Only members of the Kaffee und Kuchen usergroup can access gathering threads. Please PM Abbeybufo or Katherine if you are over 18 and would like to be added to the group.

* Discussions:
New discussions recently include:
Being orphans and Joey Bettany/Maynard in Special Sixth.
Chalet School Hobbies and Director General of the BBC in Lemon Biscuits & Liberty Bodices.
Meanwhile, many older topics are still prompting opinion, and we welcome all contributions, whether you are a newcomer or an ‘old hand’.

* Drabble News:
A fairly quiet week on the SDL again – with only two new items:
Stuck!, by Minim
Hockey, by Minim.
There are plenty of continuing drabbles, though, and to see which drabbles have recently been updated or added to SDL, go to The Sally Denny Library.
You do not have to be a drabble author to register on the SDL, and there is a ‘review’ facility to enable readers to comment. Please do go and familiarise yourselves with the SDL and enjoy your drabble reading there. It is possible to set reminders of new posts, or new drabbles by your selected authors, so you can be kept abreast of what is happening in your favourite stories. There is a FAQ thread has been set up in Ask the Librarian to tell you all you should need to know, and a Drabble Subject Discussions thread in Stacie Benson's Reading Notes for anyone to contribute comments on current drabbles.

* Spot Supper:
We welcome back Alex, who has re-introduced herself in Spot Supper this week. If you have yet to reveal your existence to the board, there is a profile template to help you get over any initial shyness, and you can be assured of a warm welcome there.

If you’d like anything included next week, or if we missed anything in this week’s edition, just send one of us a PM.
JB Kathy_S & Abbeybufo.
