Round Robin Challenge: Signs

Hello Robins :) This challenge is now closed! Thanks for playing. :)

Welcome to the announcement of our next Round Robin Challenge. This time, our challenge was chosen by Kimberleigh, author of the journal, "I Shaved My Legs For This?" She has chosen, "Signs," for our next go-around.

We see them all the time don't we? Stop, Go, Yield, Slippery When Wet, Caution Dangerous Curves Ahead, Speed Bump, Speed Hump, not to mention the amusing signs one can sometimes find as the name of a business, such as a local Chinese restaurant here in the East bay, "The Foo Lum." Well, run that name together and you have to wonder don't you? LOL. I love taking photos of signs, and quite a collection as a matter of fact, so I am really looking forward to this challenge, I hope you are as well. Say, do you remember the lyrics to the song, "Signs" by The Five Man Electrical Band,"

"Signs, signs, everywhere there's signs
Messin' up the scenery, breakin' my mind
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?"

The date of this next challenge will be,Wednesday, March 15th, as usual you can post anytime between the midnights of that day, and for up to one week after the challenge. Please DO NOT post your entry prior to that date however, because it isn't fair to play before the one who chooses the topic and besides, by playing on the day of the challenge, you have the best chance of having your entry be seen. These challenges are all about having fun and supporting our fellow journalists and bloggers, we ask that everyone try to observe the rules of play. :)

If you haven't played along with us before, please visit the *Welcome Entry & Rules Of Play* which can be clicked on above, or it can be found on the sidebar of this journal. It is a brief summary of how we play the challenges. There aren't many rules, but we do ask you to familiarize yourself with them prior to playing along with us. Also, I want to remind you that you can now receive updates, when this journal announces each new challenge subject, every two weeks, by signing up with either Feedblitz or Bloglet. Both are found on the sidebar. Simply enter your name in the box for either service, and follow the directions. After you submit your subscription, you will not receive an update from either service, until the NEXT challenge subject posts to this journal.

So, that means, if you put your subscription in today, you won't receive an update until after March 16th, the scheduled date of our NEXT subject announcement. If you have any questions, please DO NOT leave them in the comments, instead email either Karen or myself and one of us will get back to you ASAP. You can find our email addresses below. Okay Robins, you have your next assignment, see you in two weeks for the challenge. :)

Carly & Karen :) :)
