Season XVI – Alphaday 2

Hi Alphas,

Welcome to Alphaday 2, Season XVI. We’re still cranking up the Alpha machinery and we’ll have to wait till next Alphaday before we’re in full flow. We’ve started well and there was plenty to get us going in our opening session.

Our trusted Alpha team has been busy preparing for Alphaday 2. Every Alpha member is included in this ‘team’ as their contributions by way of challenge entries, Log news and discussions about holiday reading make up the workings of Alpha. Some, however, have worked a bit harder than the rest in planning the next steps. They have helped putting together this Alphaday agenda, as follows:

Alphaday 2, Season XVI agenda:

  • This bulletin from me
  • The collated entries for the Moral Dilemma challenge from Sarah
  • The brief for Ch.2 from Ros
  • Log news from Phil

All this will land in your in-box in the course of the day and I expect you’ll find it quite absorbing. If there’s anything you’d like to comment on, we’re exceedingly interested in hearing what you have to say. Alphaday is our get-together.

Alpha news:

Nothing special has been brought to my notice since last time. I hope Rick is settling in well and beginning to feel at home in Alpha.

The Log will bring us the real news that we’re all interested in and Ros has been updating our web site’s members’ page. It’s looking far more lively than before. There are still some gaps to be filled and it’d be great to have a full set.

General news:

‘What is the world coming to?’ Sometimes I love teasing Alphas with the most banal clichés that I can come up with. There’s plenty of entertainment value in the news these days and I can’t help a certain fascination for the truly cringe-worthy parts … and the truly uplifting parts like Greta, the modern day Joan of Arc who can look daggers at those she disapproves of. Here’s another cliché: ‘A picture is worth a thousand words’ and the photographer who took that photo of her must be quite pleased with themself. Photography is an interesting art form and I recently admired the winning photos in the Comedy Wildlife Awards. I thought they told some very moving stories.
