    This month's theme is Foreign. Which should be fairly topical with Trumps new world vision. Any interpretation is fine by me. :D

    Here are some pointers from google search of foreign:
    1. of, from, in, or characteristic of a country or language other than one's own.
      "foreign currency"
      synonyms: overseas, distant, remote, far off, far flung, external, outside; More
      alien, non-native, adventitious
      "foreign branches of UK banks"
      antonyms: domestic
      • dealing with or relating to other countries.
        "foreign policy"
      • of or belonging to another district or area.
        "a visit to a foreign clan"
      • coming or introduced from outside.
        "the quotation is a foreign element imported into the work"
    2. 2.
      strange and unfamiliar.
      "I suppose this all feels pretty foreign to you"
      synonyms: unfamiliar, unknown, unheard of, strange, alien, exotic, outlandish, odd, peculiar, curious, bizarre, weird, queer, funny; More
    There maybe something there for remote rural members of U75 community? I expect multiple photos of Euros :thumbs::D

    Right well by my count Lucy Fur is second place with me 3rd.

    Probably have to roll March and April competition together at this point.

    If anybody has any idea to open it up to more entries it might be a good time to push those ideas. In recent months there has not been that much interest as there has been in the past. Again sorry for the delay.

    No problem, didn't mean to be pushy. Let's turn this into a March/April one as suggested, which will also give more time for entries - like you say it's been a bit thin recently.

    If the editor is OK with that? Need to change title to April/March which I don't think is possible for u75 users?

    It's fine - I'll change the title.
