    Firstly, congrats to all the winners!
    Secondly, congrats and thanks to our most entertaining and attentive host. Fabulous debut season, Liz, no doubt!
    Thirdly, big thanks to everyone who participated, especially those with multiple entries! The playlist was over 70 videos long!
    Fourthly, am I the only one who's now burning with curiosity about those huge shipping containers' contents?
    Fifthly, I'm convinced you'll sign up for gatekeeping again.

    And, I'm learning about tomatoes. I didn't know this:
    tomato: (slang) A desirable-looking woman.
    Tomatoes are sometimes called love apples (from French pomme d'amour), because the French held the belief that the exotic tomato had aphrodisiac powers.

    In Europe they were they were thought to be poisonous as people who ate them died. This was allegedly discovered to
    be down to lead leached from pewter plates by the acidic nature of the tom. However this is now widely debunked as a myth.

    But one thing is certain. The tomato demonstrates the difference between knowledge and wisdom:

    It is knowledge to be aware that tomatoes are a fruit.

    It is wisdom to not use them in a fruit salad !!

    Seriously though your hosting made a super week for all.
    Thanks again,
    John
    Just WHAT are you expecting, John????

    Thanks so much for the week, Liz ... you've been a lovely host; and congrats to the worthy winners!
