I don't know who else is going to vote this week, but I'll be posting the Top 40 in about another 30 hours, around 8.00 p.m. Friday my time (it's Thursday 2.00 p.m. here now). I like to have Saturday mornings free for my Grandchildren, whom I don't usually see the rest of the week.

Don't get too uptight about how you vote. This is supposed to be a diversion from the hassles of everyday life; not a chore.

:P

Dianne won't be voting...she says it's too complicated... :P ... Oh well, I tried to help...

I finally figured it out and then after spending considerate amount of time for the last section (aka, sifting through my own collection), I was told it wasn't correct and another said it was. It would of been okay if it was my first time around but after reading/posting my first couple of replies, it more or less took the f out of fun. However, I don't mean any disrespect whatsoever to the people and this game.

Thanks for voting Lea and Phil. :) Great Cat Stevens' Theme !

When I was talking about non-voters this week, I wasn't surprised about Dianne leaving - but I'm sorry she has - and I'd given up on Outhouse anyway. I'm concerned that regulars whom I've seen online this week haven't voted. There's still a few hours though I suppose !
