Today in the UK is a big fundraising day for the Children in Need charity whose mascot is a bear - to support them I've organised my work colleagues to bring in home made cakes to sell, and run a competition to match the right owner to the picture of their bear. So, for those of you who can't be here, a picture of some of the cakes . ;D ;D

Today we have purchased a new 20" widescreen Samsung computer screen which is a great improvement on the previous 5 year old fading antique. The colours are WOW and despite everyone getting wider, you all look younger  ;D ;D ;D

Maggi - my 5 year old daughter (Ellie of biscuit fame) just saw your new photograph and said it looked like a fat lady. Suggest you put the old one back up.

Astute child that, your Ellie! And she's never even met me yet!
Show her this one, it's from a pic taken from the old TV Programme "Bloom" ( I'm on the left, with Anne Swithinbank  on the right) .....see if Ellie likes this on any better.......

Maggi,

Couldn't you have made the avatar the video of you dancing with the tassles, instead of the video without them. Most disappointing!  :P ;)
Cheers.

Paul, I'm sorry about the lack of tassels, but, if you look closely ( though how you could bear to do THAT is beyond me) you'll see that there is, in fact, fringing which wiggles.......dear gawd, the mind boggles!


Carlo, without all that chocolate, I would NEVER have achieved the figure I have today... it has taken years of dedicated munching.... I am devastated  that you don't appreciate my efforts  :'(

I'm strangely aroused. I think I need help.
