Glad to hear he's happy, John. That's the important thing. And that you're happy.
My son-in-law is a retired Navy SEAL with a couple of breathless deployments to Somalia behind him. (He was also stationed at Virginia Beach). He is not one to share his experiences other than to downplay them. He's safe now, with a wife who completes him and four radiant children.

Ahh, this is a great thread. If we're doing familial good news, I am thrilled to share that my eldest daughter, who has had a rocky time through a COVID-ridden BA, has completed her Mediaeval History MA and found a job she loves (she was promoted on the second day in). Teaching in a sixth form college. My heart explodes with pride, to the point at which I have made two dozen meringues and posted them to all and sundry to celebrate.

I donít bake even virtually, but the coffeehouse I frequent does wonderful Napoleons, and you get one as congratulations.

Good to hear news like this in this ever-changing world in which we're living. (Thank you Paul.) Congratulations to your daughter.

My film director sister, Barbie, whose recent wedding I wrote a poem/song about, has just been awarded an International Emmy in the category of Sports Documentary for the film, Queen of Speed.

Over the moon on her behalf.

PS Barbie's on the right in the photo.

Brilliant, Duncan! Having been musically present at the wedding, I feel like I know her. Congrats to you both!

Cheers, Carl!

In Danish we say: "It will take a long time to put our arms down." I.e. "Rejoicing has no end."

Duncan

PS And Danes are still celebrating their victory in The European Cup (in men's football) in 1992, so there's a lot of truth in that.
