Change of competition rules:  1) Three prizes available, so you send me an email or PM when you have found the two constituents of the mouldy egg.2) In case of more than three people replying by 24.00 Eastern Standard time, with the right answer, this coming Friday, (06/09/15) a witty reply will stand you in good stead.  I will post these replies.3) A donation to CPNhelp will get a dedication.3) Anyone may enter apart from anyone related to me...........Sarah

This is the print on offer, on archival paper 13x19".  The painting, of poplars in Italy, was started by me in oils about four years ago, then I became too ill to finish it.  I have now finished it in acrylic.

I think it is in Jim´s kitchen, but we cannot see it, because it is hidden due to the fact he did not finish kitchen yet. :)

Altesa, you'll kick yourself when you see it.  So far I have only one, very witty winner, so two prints going spare and my printer is very heavy on the ink.  Remember, it is only one step away from home.........Sarah

Sarah, you're just egging us on. The yolk's on me, cause I haven't found it. Guess I'll keep looking.

Right, three people have now got it, but it is only 4.30 EST on Thursday morning, so, sucker that I am and since several people have got nearly there, I will change the rules yet again to say that everyone who gets it by the appointed time will be a winner.  One more clue only: its not a picture.  (I would prefer it if you donated something to CPN, though, unless you are admin. and you have to say something witty.)........Sarah

I think you can change now rules again and prolonge a date to Sylvestr. :) I will search for some extremelly rich man to register here and then give him a big clue. :-)

Oh Sarah, perhaps I explained it bad? If a very rich man wanted to win one of your picture, then he would certainly donate a big amout of money to cpnhelp. :) That was only reason. I have my boyfriend already, I am not interested in rich men, they usually talk too much about money, which is very boring. Sylvestr is last day in year..

I must improve my English! Maybe after finishing treatment I will understand much more jokes! if I stay on cpnhelp for few years..

Lala,  Some things just get lost in translation.  There are some things that don't even register as humor or irony or offense, etc. between English speakers from different countries when they are intended to do so.  There are even some things that get lost in translation between Steve and me, because he is a yankee, and I am a native Texan.  We will all continue to learn from each other, become familiar, and grow closer in our mutual understanding by virtue of the cumulative effect of our correspondence.  Thank you for learning English...it's wonderful to have you on this site.  Joyce

Lala, your written English is charming.  A lot of my "very English" English is misunderstood, and if someone with a strong Northumberland accent talks too much, I give up trying to understand what they are saying.  As for jokes, they often don't get through the borders even of a county, let alone a country.  Then there is the difference between "English" English and American English: we even use different spelling for many words.  Don't forget you are one of the first competition winners, so your English must be quite good.

And the winners are: Cypriane, Lala, Altesa, Minai, Reed, Janice C, runners up: Willow and Raven. 

The first two people to discern this...........

Jim,

Am I the guilty party? I do work in HTML, but nothing fancy. This an example. It enables different coloured text in, say, references [White K and Yoke, Y (2005) Novel use of eggs in making omelettes: shells are best removed before whisking. Compt Rendu Acad Sci (Rockall) 640 1 - 4.] I think the problem may come when the HTML isn't terminated. I don't cut and paste from word, but if it's me, I'll stop.

..........were Cypriane and Lala, whose reply when I told her she had the right answer was:

HOHOHO, yupiiiiou, I won! :) (with big clue)

I wonder, who was the first "the cleverest".................

Cypriane, "The Cleverest" produced this:

Though artfully humble and feigning disgrace,

He blatantly camouflaged egg on his face.

Not runny nor raw this ruse for the fun,

But carefully coddled and very Wheldon!

Which was unknowingly appropriate since DW prefers to coddle his eggs rather than poach them, like me.

So, since it wasn't DW but M. Berger and me who were mucking up so many people's text for a while, this is my penance.  M. Berger isn't sorry at all, but he is Swiss.

Thanks Rica,  I have to admit to everyone that my success was an accident of timing.  Having been very busy for a few days prior to the start of the egg hunt, I was catching up on recent posts in no particular order.  By chance, I read the thread with the answer immediately after reading Sarah's contest introduction.  The truer winners are the ones who actually went on an egg hunt.  Still, I had fun writing my little verse.  Joyce

To all on this wondrous contest-

I got too busy, and abhorred to enter,

Though requested to lend my wit to thee.

Instead, half-witted, I stayed off-center

And now, it turns out, the yolk's on me.
