CHNC challenge 444


Regarding problems with Linky Tools

Update - I've received this from Brent at Linky Tools:

Here's the issue... the site has over 18K old users with 9+ MILLION old image files. So it is really bogging the system down. I am in the process of spring cleaning the old users and files. I have no idea how long it will take (a few days) and I apologize for whatever inconvenience and aggravation it causes. I'm working hard to resolve it. Linky Tools has run very smoothly for many years... I hope to have this cleared up as fast as possible.
It seems to be OK now ... hope you can add your entries.


Thank you for all lovely entries for last week's challenge - 45 super festive entries.
