    It seems that the DG's popularity has no bounds given the amount of PM's i've received, followed by the hate mail when i replied it would be a while. So here is the 4th Edition of the most read newspaper on the planet

    I'm looking forward to tasting the new doughnut flavors! It's been years since Harriet has made a batch of cookies... and Matilda... cute as she is...she's a lousy cook. (Don't tell her I said that.)

    Enjoy your vacation Robi D! I'm sure you've earned it.

    Please remember, for Celtic Idiots, the term 'squating' has a different meaning than for most. They don't exactly use the Queen's English...

    I'm still unclear on why the ivory wasn't in doughnuts. It's white like sugar right?

    Yeah. What's up with that? When you shave them they look like shredded coconut shavings. You use dyes to change the colors, don't ya? I say try shredded ivory...tastes a little like chicken.

    It seems like the flavour of the month spells Bronze. May the best builders win. Can we come take a look when you've finished? Meanwhile, we're on our way to go see a dead guy :D

    We swapped for April 1... and then Whomp's computer started having issues. I'm sure he'll get it straightened out... eventually. As for the rest of Whomp's issues....that will take more time. ;)

    I wish to place an advertisement in your fine publication:

    Quality Antiques for Sale - Intrepid explorers with quick feet and large swords wish to market artifacts from ruined city. Scimitars, pantaloons, and writings from an almost extinct civilization. Be at the market on Meleetday. These items are for the true afficionado of lost civs.

    Is that a one-off ad or a reoccuring one, because were having a special this month, get your ad in 5 editions for the price of 4.

    The DG has become the number one news publication in all of Meleet by leading the way by breaking the big stories from Doughnutia and abroad. We continue this tradition by having the first ever interview of a government official. And no its not Robi D (interviewing my self would just be too wierd), its not even a Doughnutian!;)
    Read on:D

    That suggestion would have been most helpful before last turn's palace expansion... but I'll add your request to the already... "eclectic" look of the imperial cave.
