Well done Billy boy, half centurianship and the new £10 poms
Due to being very kindly accompanied into the first minutes of half centurianship by some very nice friends offering excellent food, wine and conversation, I enjoyed the company of that excellent journalist, Katie Couric, on CBS Evening News this morning via Sky. Well done Billy Boy for hopefully shock-thawing US-North Korea relations and allowing us to sleep a tad more soundly in our beds at night. As we picked our way through Manchester in the early hours we chanced upon some spirited youngsters queuing up amidst tents and sleeping bags to become new "£10 poms" courtesy of an enterprising travel agency. Good luck to them and thanks and love to everyone who has helped me along the way to my big 5-0.
