LBP2!In case you've been wondering why I've been quiet recenly, it's because we have three products launching in July, and another two in September, one in October, another at winterval, and today and tomorrow we're going through 160 proposals for our 2011 slate (up from 70 last year, and 35 in year 1 of C4 education's rebirth). I am fuelled, these days, only by coffee and regular electrical jolts. Bride of Frankenstein, with hair to match.
