We're having a wonderful Spring here in the North Bay / Corbeil areas, after an unusually severe blizzard last week! The trees are green, the tulips are blooming, and the deer will be along to nibble our hostas shortly.

In website news this month, we've launched a new, wider FBorFW.com - you may have noticed! We did this to take advantage of the larger monitors that most people now have. Taking advantage of the added screen real estate, we divided our Fun Stuff dropdown list into one menu for "games" and another for "fun stuff" so you'll find it easier to navigate.

Do you like to draw? Send us your fan art! We're looking for your illustrations of the FBorFW characters for a new page in our website. If you have an FBorFW tattoo, we'd be interested in posting that too! Don't get one just because we mentioned it, though - we don't want to be responsible for annoying your Mom and we're not offering any prizes for tattoos like other cartoonists have done! We just think it would be neat to see them.

We've also got a new game for you to enjoy: Word Roundup. It's a word search / crossword puzzle hybrid, and we think you'll love it. Every day, a new Roundup game appears magically on our site and we maintain two weeks' worth of previous games so you can catch up if you miss one.

We're always interested in your suggestions for our site. Look us up on Facebook or email us with your suggestions!

The National Cartoonists' Society Reuben Awards was held in New Jersey on May 29th - the Memorial Day weekend. Lynn enjoyed herself completely and we'll be posting some of her photos on our website shortly.

Lynn's friend Greg Ford has created a great Farley animation for us, which we're presenting as a special e-greet! Check it out here!

Thank you to all of the readers who have been helping us proofread our archive of FBorFW strips - your assistance has been invaluable, especially those of you who have located and scanned copies of some of the strips we didn't have copies of. This month's studio photo (below) was scanned by Daniel B.T., who located this strip from 1986 in an old Gazette he had kept for 24 years! Click on the small version of the strip to see it at full size in our archive. Thanks Daniel!

Plush Farley! Everyone who's emailed us about Farley has loved him! Get yours today.

Treasury editions of Lynn's strips are in the works. We'll share updates as we get more information.

We've had some people asking whether we'd be releasing the FBorFW animated specials on Blu-Ray. Please let us know if you'd be interested and we'll look into it!
