OK, yes I've seen the Rougue's Gallery with the Lego people, including recently when you posted a link to demonstrate scrolling frames, as I recall.

But, here is the full cast of Lego Rogues in the header of this trip down memory lane

Mystery solved, methinks. I found this (very old!) post of yours:

http://forums.serif.com/showthread.php?t=14333&postid=46905

It's clear from your post that you created the actual image, but it's equally clear from Becky's reply that she was responsible for the wording. As I indicated earlier in this thread, I suspect that you simply pressed the 'Randomize' button on the Mini-Mizer site (which would explain the presence of wings that you wouldn't have chosen to put there if doing it manually).

During my search, I also stumbled across this thread:

http://forums.serif.com/showthread.php?t=19018

How's that for a trip down Memory Lane?

THat, Alfred, is quite some trip!!! Nine years back.

But I only see a hint of the proof. LOL. It's hard to believe I've forgotten this LegoRogues business. I'd better go sniff some herbs.

Maybe you'd better stop sniffing those herbs!

I agree.

I have both rosemary and basil as live plants, essential oils, macerated oils and etc.

Both are excellent for perking up brain activity.

I used to propogate about 18 varieties of basil and a dozen of rosemary. Each different.

The only trouble is that now, if I smell that combo of oils, I feel like I am in an exam situation again. Association is a powerful thing.

Speaking of stimulating the memory, isn't it funny how Rosemary and Basil go together??

Hmm... Maybe it is worth "sniffing some herbs" before I sit my exams... Anything to help me recall those vital facts and figures

Rosemary is the big gun with memory, TAE.

Get a few sprigs and either put them behind your ear or in your pocket.

Oh; I used to love that program! I think I used to have the series on video or something! I can't really remember much about it, but the lion was called Parsley... I wonder how long ago it was I used to watch it... 11-12 years ago??? maybe more... many of us have taken a trip down memory lane in this thread throughout the various posts

Cara, look what you started!

Perhaps it doesn't travel quite as well as Michael Bond's more famous creation, Paddington Bear.

I never really saw Paddington Bear; I don't know if maybe it was just before my time, but I do still remember that he was big, with his marmalade sandwiches
