Definitely congratulations to the winners, as well as the nominees. I'm glad I didn't have to select a winner from those groups - they would have all won.

Thanks for reporting on this, Kaye! Exciting news for people at the University of Saskatchewan. Alan Bradley (Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie) spent over 30 years as our colleague until he retired - and decided to become famous.
Congratulations to all the winners!

It was indeed a very strong group this year, wasn't it?! I'm very happy to have some of my favorite people win, but I sure am glad I didn't have to do the choosing!!

Floating is a good thing . . . Enjoy it, Hank! Well earned, sweetie!
