So that was 2017. The year we lost David Cassidy, Jerry Lewis, and Keith Chegwin. The year a mentally unstable narcissist was sworn in at the Whitehouse. The year the UK Government acted like a petulant child with the EU. The year in which Her Majesty's official opposition did nothing to oppose.
On the plus side, I finally put out a book and took some more photos. So here’s my seventh annual video slideshow review of the year:

Anyway, yesterday I decided to send Stense a video update, to show her how Millie's getting on. And as a new video constitutes new content, I thought maybe I should post it here too:
…and he likes it.
Happy 60th Birthday, Mark E Smith! What less appropriate way to mark(!) the occasion than with this masterpiece?
