"The magazine wishes it didn't still have to be said, but it does: no stories about September 11, Y2K bug and Tsunamis."

"The website wishes it didn't still have to be said, but it does: no patterns of knitted alien figures, seasonal ornaments and wavy scarves will be accepted"
How to say "no" nicely is a practised art and editors have honed it to the nth degree. Especially the first few publishers that turned down J.K. Rowlings and her Harry Potter manuscript saying that young people would never read anything that long - surprise, surprise!!

Dinner? Something literary and nice and I am stumped. What do you serve at a book launch? Finger food - we've done that. Nothing alien, monstrous or wavy unless it's pasta. Boarding school food? Well I do remember eating lunch often in the Woman's College dining room at U of T. They often served quiche with some stewed tomato confection and greens. This could work. I have posted a link for quiche earlier. Here's another one from basic recipes. The pictures are of knitted patterns that I am glad that I accepted and posted. They are wonderful!
