Just a quick thank-you to everyone in internet world for all the weird and wonderful things that have been happening with our sites and blogs — especially for getting a picture of our daughter, Oli, aged just two-and-a-half onto the first page of Reddit.  The hits for this — our wee family blog also went ballistic.  Oh, and (completely unrelated), thanks to all those at Flikr for the stuff surrounding the picture of DP at Kelvingrove Art Galleries — he was just 7 months old at the time.  Funny how these two pictures are from the same year (2007).

Let’s hope it will be as superb as the past decade.

Looking back (briefly), we have had the very best possible decade, and 2010 was our best year so far!  We know it doesn’t get any better.

To get the new year off to a super-start, we have decided to (more…)
