  1. well, there were one or two lags in the video, but didn't spoil my enjoyment. Both of your projects are looking good.
    CC, if I knew how, would have done a frozen screenshot of your astonishment at Damaris' comment regarding ''Sherlock'' and your liking of it. A perfect example that could be used in drama class!!!!!
