It is a truism of course, but time does fly! It feels as if it was only yesterday that I asked you in this blog to share techno- names you have invented or may have come across; and only the day before yesterday that we invited E&T readers to fill tin he tenth - empty - square on our OneToTen England's Top Engineering Monuments spread, in which we reproduced the list of nine engineering marvels, as recently suggested by Visit England. Well, it could be the extremely cold spring in the UK that made the first four months of 2013 look like an extended Christmas period without days off. Yet the fact remains: both of the above mini-challenges were issued three months ago, so time has come to sum them up and announce the winners.
