Special - Saddam, Sight and Sound Edition ...
In case nobody has noticed, around here we've not been blogging for a day or two.
But never fear - we're right back here - as plenty of people have had proof of in the past, This Old Brit and I have never, ever been known to 'go quietly'. In fact as so many folk have often found, we really are rather harder to get rid of, than herpes.
Heh -- whatever that is or whatever they are.
And the honest to God truth is that there's so much mega-stuff been going on [and still is] -- as I'm sure anyone who ever heard of high treason and treachery in the highest of high places being talked about, will already be more than well aware.
Well, that's our excuse anyhow, and we're sticking to it.
But even now, as we sit here to write - or type - we still feel filled with guilt.
We feel like some of those fabled, harassed housewives who find the easiest way out of taking 'proper' care of the kids [when so many different things seem to be bearing down] is to simply stick on a video for them, then leave them to it for a while.
However, never let it be said that we neglect our duties altogether, 'cos we don't.
So, as it will be around another 20 or so hours before business as usual is resumed, we're making a peace offering - sort of in semi-advance.
And here's how -- we're gonna give you all a little gift.
Yep, that's right, we're gonna give you a video to 'stick on'.
It's kinda, sorta, loosely related to lots of the things going on that we mentioned at the outset.
Precisely how you view the video will depend a lot on yourself.
Some readers [or should we say listeners today ?] will most likely learn a few new things, while some more might be merely - but timely - reminded.
And since we don't do things on the cheap or by half measures around here -- you'd better get the speakers turned on or the earphones hooked up -- because This Old Brit groaner, is gonna give you some of the original old groaner. Really. Honestly. Bing is thrown in for free.
Yep, that's right. You watch, while Bing sings.
So we'll see you again shortly -- but in the meantime we'll leave you to look, listen and learn.
Incidentally, please have a little patience, particularly if your internet connection speed isn't exactly supersonic. This may take a little time to download -- but we sincerely believe you'll find it well worth your while to wait.
Okay, so let's get this show on the road.
