This Old Brit : Award Winners Announcement ...
My Lords, ladies and gentlemen -- please be upstanding and pray silence for an all important, imminent announcement.
Wherein, we have great pleasure and pride (without prejudice), to announce our very own 'New Year Honours'.
For continued unstinting bravery, support, loyalty, encouragement, integrity, intermittent tittering, commentorial temperance and right honourable commitment to truth-telling -- it has today been decreed that most well earned and unarguably richly deserved, official aristocratic British titles are hereby and henceforth to be bestowed with immediate effect, upon each and every respected & revered regular at This Old Brit's and Richard's blog.
Implementation of aforementioned decree is hereby commanded and duly authorised this 30th day of January in the year of good grace 2007.
And, may milady of good & great fortune, good health, much wealth and eternal happiness speed unto thee and thine - and all who have so steadfastly serially sailed so similarly close to the wind - as wot we 'ave.
With bells, whistles and ribbons on ; to be worn with pride.
Batteries not included.
