For Life

It's great to see you again! Welcome to the first WordMaster edition of September - definitely one of our top 12 favorite months of the year!

We had a rather long short-list of possible themes for this week, and the choice was a difficult one. So we threw away the short-list and made “Choices” our theme instead. We hope you'll be pleased with our decision!
