I hate to point out an error but the results posted in the first part of this news item for the Sapphire Award are from last year.

The winners for this year are posted below though.

*sigh* That's what I get for trying to do something while listening to the ending of BEEKEEPER'S APPRENTICE on audiotape ... Thanks for the heads up!

No problem. I've done similar things before too, but I thought I'd point it out since I was a bit confused at first. I thought I had read the post about the Sapphires on the Yahoo Group wrong or that I remembered it wrong. :)
