Against Leprosy.
By Uncle Monty at Cadogan Hall.

Although deeply Anglican, The Chivalric
Order of St. Larazus is also nondenominational
in its ecumenical fight against the scourge of
leprosy. For most folkz, leprosy is something
from a far gone age and died its own death.
But not so for those who are still afflicted with
leprosy in this electronic modern age of
digital this and digital that.
The World Heath Organization (WHO) estimates
that some 15 million people suffer from leprosy
today. Of that number, only about 3½ million
lepers are receiving any form of treatment
against such a persistent scourge that brings
"chronic infectious bacterial disease affecting
skin and nerves, resulting in mutilations and
deformities. It is also highly contagious,"
states the medical reference I used.
Some Memebrs of The Orion Symphony Orchestra.
The concert itself against leprosy was a classic
and rare programme of some British composers
who have all too often been forgotten over their
more famous fellow composers like Ralph Vaughan
Williams and Sir Edward Elgar. Thus we were
treated to the classical compositions of Dorothy
Howell (1898-1982); Josef Holbrooke (1978-1958);
and Lillian Elkington (1901-1969).
Howell’s Concerto in D Minor for Piano & Orchestra
was superbly presented bythe Orion Symphony
Orchestra under the skillful baton of its talented
conductor Toby Purser, who I met again during the
programme interval. Then we heard Holbrooke’s
Orchestral Variations on ‘The Girl I Left Behind
Me,’ Op. 37B. I was riveted by it. And Elkington’s
“Out of the Mist” was the first time I had heard
the piece played. I was glad to have heard it at
long last at the Order of St. Lazarus concert that
was designed to raise worthy funds for its fight
against the scourge of leprosy. Both The concert
and the fund raiser were an outstanding success
by any measure. I hope next to also attend the
upcoming traditional carol service of
The Order of St. Lazarus at Pimlico.
The 13th Lord Ferrers.
Although I missed personally meeting the noted
St. Lazarus patrons Sir Anthony and Lady Reardon
Smith, having themsleves gone home immediately
at the end of the concert, I was to enjoy instead my
encounter for the first time with 13th Lord Ferrers,
(shown above), who is The Grand Prior of The Order
of St. Lazarus. We had a heart-to-heart chat and he
unflinchingly answered all of my questions about the
order. He was approachable and disarming that I
found him to be toward me. I had seen his name
widely printed for years in the national British news
media as a well known Tory politician and later as
a noted member of the House of Lords. With his
grand daughter standing at his side, Lord Ferrers
stood out among the other distinquished St. Lazarus
Order patrons gathered for the evening at London’s
Cadogan Hall for the Order’s Remembrance &
Revival Concert that was sold-out without a doubt.
“The Rt. Hon. Robert Washington Shirley, 13th Earl
Ferrers, PC (born 8 June 1929), is British Conservative
politician and member of the House of Lords as one of the
remaining hereditary peers. He is one of the few people to
Bulgaria's Leading Concert
Pianist Valentina Seferinova.
Few concert pianists have I seen before play-
ing with such passion and love like I saw with
Valentina Saferinova. I could see why she was
called a 'child prodigy' at her native Bulgaria at
where today she is its leading concert pianist.
"Valya," as she is known to her family and friends,
played as soloist the Piano Concerto (in D minor)
by the Brum-born English composer Dorothy
Howell. Wonderful! I was so pleased to meet
and photograph Valya at Cadogan Hall and at
where we had a brief chat during the
concert interval.

Haselock of England's Norwich Cathedral.
Notes From St. Lazarus Charitable Trust:
“The Order of St. Lazarus was originally created
by the militarisation of an order of monks, who,
as followers of St. Basil, had chosen to work
amongst those suffering from leprosy. During
the time of the crusades all knights of the great
military orders found to be suffering from the
dreaded disease of leprosy were forced by their
own rules to leave their order. As most warrior
monks, and still quite able to fight, they usually
joined their confreres under the banner of Saint
Lazarus. The early Grand Masters of the Order
were themselves amongst those so afflicted. These
knights, who classed themselves as “living dead,”
while never large in number, were ferocious in
battle, always choosing to die rather
then face surrender."
Chaplain-General of the Order:
The Rev'd Canon David Skeoch.

Purser, and Lady Patron, Together at Cadogan Hall.
The Sign Speaks For Itself!
In closing for now, I just wish I could attend
such concerts every week of the kind presented
by The Order of St. Lazarus. Alas, only once
in awhile do I find such. But when I do, I jump
for joy. I really do ... And the fight against
leprosy should never be forgotten, too.
I shall not forget the fight for sure ...
Bittersweet, Uncle Monty.

Defrock Pete Broadbent.
By Alex Albion.
hello bishop richard:
frankly, i think pete broadbent, as the suffragan
bishop of willesden, should be defrocked forthwith,
if he doesn’t step down of his own free will. like
you, i feel his comments about our dear prince
william and his lovely catherine was not only
appalling but also cheapened them and the
church by his uncalled for and gutter comments.
at the gafcon conference a few years ago, i first en-
countered pete broadbent and i politely asked him
if i could photograph him like i had of the various
other anglican bishops there. he was rude and con-
descending to me upon his loud disapproval of my
humble request! i was taken aback by his impersonal
attitude for no reason at all. when on the other hand
i bumped into you at around the same time on the
steps of st. paul’s cathedral, you kindly consented to
my request to photograph you as the lord bishop
of london without any ado. thank you
kindly, bishop richard!!
while i believe pete broadbent as a right to his
own opinions on whatever subject that takes
his wildest leftist fancy, i believe he is obligated
to recognize his role as bishop first and above all
else. that he has failed to do. the words he used
on the internet were not only rather infantile
but lacking grace and respect for the royal
couple and for his fellow anglicans like you and
me ... if i’d had been at clarence house when
the willesden fellow called to apologize, i
would have simply slammed the phone
down in his face ... that’s how i feel!
as for you bishop richard, i totally agree with
the steps you have thus far taken against pete
broadbent, who should not be confused in any
way with retiring bishop peter broadhurst of
fulham. so the quicker pete broadbent
is removed, much the better i say!
truly, alex albion.

Wills+Kate. By Uncle Monty.

Smashing News!
Engagement & Wedding of Prince
William of Wales And Catherine,
Future Princess of Wales.
By Uncle Monty at Geneva.
Photos: News Agency Images.
:: Royal Wedding Now Set for April
Over the years since the 1953 Coronation of
Queen Elizabeth II to the horrible death of
Diana, Princess of Wales, I have become less
and less excited about the British Royal Family,
especially after living for years in Republic
America at where royalty is oftentimes seen
as antiquated or unreal or something from
the twilight zone.
So the announcement of the royal engagement
and the spring or summer 2011 wedding of
HRH Prince William of Wales and Miss Kate
Middleton, who is related to my dear friend
Elizabeth Middleton, has restored for now
my renewed interest and perhaps even ex-
citement about The Royal Family or "The
Firm." It would have to take such a nice
young royal couple, like Wills and Kate, to
fire my imagination again after the loss of
so much royal magic for me. They are
now the new magic. Bravo!
Wills with Kate after receiving his RAF Wings.
:: News Update ::
(British) Public want William and Kate as
While attending the snooty and upper class
wedding of Harry Meade, 29, and Rosie Bradford,
30, at Northleach, Glos, on Oct. 23rd, 2010, Wills
was quoted there as saying: “We won’t be pushed
into a wedding announcement.” Yet, only to do so
less than a month later after being teased that
Wills and Kate would be the next to tie the knot.
Indeed! And about time after more than 8
years of dating and courtship together.
Kate & Wills at the Harry Meade wedding.
"Prince William and Kate Middleton engagement
announced Clarence House statement reveals
engagement of second in line to throne and his
long-term girlfriend after weeks of speculation."
By Stephen Bates & James Meikle.
The British print media went bonkers moments
after the official announcement of the royal engage-
ment of Wills and Kate with such UK mass dailies
as The Sun publishing a 12-page Royal Wedding
Pullout in its Souvenir Edition that hit the streets
less than 12 hours after the official confirmation.
British press rejoice at prospect of royal wedding.
By Roy Greenslade.
our American media cousins went wild from coast
to coast with the royal news that even included
"The Trumpet Fanfare" at the opening of ABC’s
“Good Morning America.” Perhaps next they’ll
ship Obama across the pond to join other wed-
ding guests. All I can say is “God Forbid!!!” He’d
be totally out of his social and cultural depth.
Wills & Kate memorabilia also instantly
appeared in such stores like ASDA – Britian’s
Wal-Mart chain – with tacky mugs for 5 quid
or US$8 each. Few of those items are made in
England with most coming from sweatshops
in China, Japan and Korea.
As for the final wedding location that is to be
announced, I would love to see the wedding take
place at North Wales perhaps at Caernarfon Castle
at where Wills’ own father Prince Charles was
granted and declared the ancient investiture
of the Prince of Wales in 1969. Plus, Wills is
located in North Wales right now doing his
RAF pilot stint. So Caernarfon at Gwynedd
would fit nicely for him and Kate.
London’s St. Paul’s Cathedral and Westminister
Abbey have been the venues for many royal
occasions over donkey’s ages, but a royal wed-
ding at somewhere like Caernarfon or at the
Isle of Anglesey would be even more terrific,
I think. Is such possible? Yes, but highly un-
likely to occur for the 2011 Royal Wedding.
Kate Middleton, then 19, at St. Andrew's
University Charity Fashion Show. No
wonder Wills was all eyes for Kate!!
Kate must now remember upon her marriage
to Wills to be addressed as Catherine, Princess
of Wales, which she will become by law. I hope,
too, that she’ll be treated alot better than Prince
William’s dear mother – Diana, Princess of Wales –
was by the Royal Family and especially by Charles,
who is given to shrill temper tantrums at the drop
of a hat. And like all fairytales, there is always the
danger of hard reality torpedoing
even the best of fairytales.
Unlike again back in 1981 when Charles & Diana
wed, the wedding of Wills and Kate will no doubt
see all kinds of internet scams regarding the
2011 Royal Wedding. So beware of such possible
cyber scams like offering (false) invitations to the
wedding or a (phoney) opportunity to be photo-
graphed with the royal couple. Report such
e-crimes to your local police right away. And in
any case, send no money to such cyber criminals
and online con artists!! Will I get a royal invitation
to the wedding? Of course, NOT!! Will I get to see
something of the wedding? I aim to depending on
when the wedding day occurs for I could well be
out of the country visiting elsewhere much like
I have this year of 2010.
I want to take a trip around the world at some-
time during the remaining years of my life. Fin-
ances now look good to do it, either next year or
2012. So we’ll see. I don’t want to be in London
for the Olympics for sure. The city is already too
overcrowded with too many god damn Third
World immigrants and loads of lousey foreigners,
so I dread to think of the added mess and huge
crowds for the 2012 London Olympics.
2011 British Royal Wedding.
Although a blue-blooded Anglican who was fully
christened and baptized as HRH William Arthur
Philip Louis Mountbatten-Windsor in 1982 by
then Archbishop Robert Runcie of Canterbury,
Wills has shown no public affection or expression,
as far as I know, of his Anglican faith. If such is
then we could well have a secular Anglican as king,
despite him then becoming the temporal head
of The Church of England and Defender of the
Faith. As for Kate Middleton, I have no idea
of her faith expression other than I assume she,
too, is Anglican. Prince Charles has long declared
he wants to be the Defender of the FAITHS,
not solely the defender of the Anglican faith.
While such sounds awfully politically correct
in hideous and socialist-inspired multicultural
and multiracial England of today, I want a
British king and/or queen who first defends
the historic Anglican faith above and beyond
all others. As a traditional Anglican myself,
I say to hell with defending other faiths like
blood-thirsty Islam and cultist Scientology.
No, sir! Anglicanism, first – period!!
In the meantime: Congratulations to
Prince William and the future Catherine,
Princess of Wales.

Collection. Such is seen 100 years later

Unlike when Charles and Diana wed in 1981
before the births of Wills and Kate, today the
greatest danger to the monarchy is the evil rise
of Islam and radical socialism in Europe. Both
elements are strongly anti-Christian. All monarchies
in Europe are, of course, Christian. For them the
danger of Islam and leftist loonies seeking to over-
throw them at some point is no idle threat. Worse
still, royal individuals like Wills and Charles could
easily become potshot targets of such extremist
jihadists and/or extreme leftists at any given
moment either inside Britain or elsewhere.
I’m afraid no welcome Royal Wedding will change
that or the outrageous damage to the country that
has been done while New Labour’s stranglehold
strangled the nation for 13 long dark years. Thus
the future of the British Monarchy, I doubt, will
survive into the 22nd century unless the evil
forces of Islam and radical socialism are con-
fronted and stamped out real fast ...
Muslims by the millions have been admitted to the
UK under the treacherous and mass immigration
agenda of odious Tony Blair and his British Labour
Party gangsters like political moron Gordon Brown,
dreadful Harriet Harman, soapy Jack Straw, cocky
Peter Hain and shyster Phil Woolas , etc. What they
have done is to endanger the very safety and well-
being of the country by their pro-Muslim and anti-
white agenda that has created today’s Bloody
Broken Britain.
I'm now back from Switzerland's Geneva
for my weekend stay that's now been my
second there this year. After exploring this
rather expensive Swiss capital city, I have
herein added, as promised, abit more about
Wills & Kate. I have briefly answered such
questions like what is the future of the British
Monarchy? How the royal announcement came
on Islam's Eid. And, possible internet scams
regarding the royal event which will appear
for sure. These are some of the issues and
questions I have broached with you all on
my return to homebase.
Smashing News, right mates?
CONGRTULATIONS then to Your Royal High-
ness & Catherine. Praying that you both have a
wonderful wedding and very happy family life.
Hope you had a good weekend like I did,
Uncle Monty. +St. Hilda, 2010.
All Muslims, no matter their age or where they are
born, should be made to register their names and
addresses per annum. Future Muslims should be
barred from settling in the UK and admission to
the country should be denied no matter what.
Mosque-building and Islamic faith schools inside
Britain should be curtained by law at all costs.
Muslima wear like the burka and headscarves should
be outlawed on the streets and at all public places.
At airports, wearing a burka or headscarf is instant
denial to be allowed to fly. Such steps are urgently
needed so that the country will not be swallowed
up by vile Islam and menacing Muslims before
we can blink a further eye.
Oh, the royal announcement about Wills and
Kate also came on Islam’s Eid al-Adha, the second
biggest annual Muslim festival. So blood thristy is
Islam that some 15 MILLION animals were
slaughtered just in Bangladesh alone for Eid. The
slaughter was twice the population of London!
The poor animals didn’t stand a chance!!

Poppy Day ~ By Uncle Monty.
Photos By Alex Albion.
Some idiots have called wearing The Poppy in
remembrance of our British war dead as both
“racist” and “poppy fascism.” That’s why I
suspect I see so few, if any, of the millions of
black immigrants, foreigners, Muslims, Asians,
and Afro-Caribbean men and women in the UK
not supporting or wearing a red poopy to honour
our war dead. Many of these people come and
scrounge all they can from us for free, but de-
liberately refuse to honour those who have
fought for the freedoms we so cherish
thanks to those brave ladz and galz who
have laid down their lives for the British
Nation over many centuries.
Some of the officers and gentlemen at Poppy Day.
My view is The Poppy represents the best
that is Britain! And certainly, not the worst!
When I see menacing Muslims, who vile New
Labour let in, spitting on the good name of
our British armed service ladz and galz, I
feel such Muslim scumbagz should be de-
ported without any further ado. And also,
stop their free benefits immediately. If
such Muslims hate us so, why do they
want to stay in the UK? They want to stay
to cause trouble and get all of those freebies
they don't deserve and shouldn't be given
to them any way - period. Ship them to
America, I say, too. There they'll soon be
put in their place by the Yankees, who like
me, don't care much for menacing Muslims.
Some of our good ladz and galz at Poppy Day.
At Poppy Day, I was delighted to encounter
so many patriotic folkz and fellow compatriots
despite the grim downpours of heavy rain and
sunless sky on what was otherwise officially
called Armistice Day, 2010. Or 11.11.11.

For me the real pleasure was encounter-
ing for the first time British General Bill
Moore, CBE, (shown above in the lead photo)
who amicably chatted with me in response to
my questions about the hideous Afghanistan
War and the horror of the Bush/Blair Iraq
War of which we should have had no part.
Warmongers always become war criminals,
sooner or later, like George Bush and Tony
Blair. My questions to General Moore were
almost the same kind that I'd asked two
years ago of British General Sir Richard
Dannatt, then Chief of the British
General Staff.
Only The Best!
General Moore's answers led me to tell
him of my encounter with Field-Marshal
Vicount Montgomery at States House with
Capt. Sir Basil Liddell-Hart and his second
American wife Lady Kathleen in 1968.
Such came about due to my old friend Adrian
Liddell-Hart, Sir Basil's only son thru his first
marriage. It was Adrian who invited me to
meet my name sake for dinner. I shall always
remember that day, especially now that all
of them are sadly dead except for me!!
General Moore works closely with the American
military. So don't confuse him with the U.S. General
of the same name - William Moore. Bill Moore, the
British General, Director, Battlespace Manoeuvre/
Master General of the Ordnance for the UK MoD, will
speak at London's International Armoured Vehicles
General Moore is the fourth British General that
I have met in as many years. Top brass! So
enjoyed Bill Moore, I did. He helped make
Poppy Day so special for us all ... Bravo!
THE NEW head of Britain''s armed forces,
General Sir David Richards, has warned that the
West cannot defeat al-Qaeda and militant Islam.

If we fail to remember and honour our war
dead, even if you are someone like me who
opposes all war, then we become an empty
vessel - morally, spiritually, patriotically,
and nationalistically.
British War Veteran Still Doing His Part at Poppy Day.
What a lady to meet on Poppy Day? She's
Eliza (seen below) and called "Lieley" by her
friends. Born in 1914 ... Now at the grand
age of 96!! Bravo! She told me she remem-
bered only "bits about the 1918 First World
War" at then going on for 5 years of age or
more than 90 years ago. Wooooooow! With
her "patriotic" wheelie bag going shopping at
Morrison's, do notice how she uses no walking
stick or walking aid or a mobile shopper to get
about. Eliza represents the best that is British!!
Asked what she thought of today's England, she
said: "I shudders to think every day" at what
the Labour scoundels have done to Britian.

And, All On Armistice Day. By Uncle Monty.
So I went from the morning Poppy Day event to
the mid-day St. Martin's service for those who
have this year died homeless to the worthy St.
Lazarus evening concert at Cadogan Hall and
all on Armistice Day, 2010. Each of the three
events I attended held meaningful symbols of
what is the best of humanity and human dignity.
I was so glad I could be there at each of those
memorable events. And, least I forget to also
mention my mid-afternoon invitation to High
Tea at the newly-refurbished and recently re-
opened Savoy Hotel on The Strand with my
old visiting American friends Calhoun & Sizzy
Temple from Springfield, Illinois. They kindly
gave me my first Christmas gifts of the year!
At the end of the day, I had been on my feet
for almost 16 hours non-stop, yet I complain-
ed not!! Thus, Armistice or Remembrance
Day, 2010, I now relish will gladness and joy.
While this new week I have five more
events to attend and also possibly to write
about. Not that I need any more stories to
write since I already have so many in the
pipeline to last until the end of the year
at when I shall take a needed break from
megablogging ... until late January, 2011.

Lambeth. By Uncle Monty.

Inside Lambeth Palace.
By Uncle Monty.
Palace Photos By Alex Albion.+
Exactly two weeks after Pope Benedict XVI had made
his first and historic papal visit to Lambeth Palace as
The Vicar of Christ at the Anglican Invitation of His
Grace, The Archbishop of Canterbury, I also made
my first visit last month inside the palace much
like the pope had done earlier.
Unlike the Holy Father, however, I arrived with no
public fanfare of course. Although as an avowed
Anglican, I had visited the palace on the outside at
a number of times, but I still had not seen inside
until my invited arrival to view the interior of
the eccelesiastic seat of The Archbishops
of Canterbury from many past centuries.+
With the enforced restrictions against visitors and
guests photographing inside the palace itself, I
was handicapped to bring to this blog story some
good inside pictures to help better illustrate the
story. A good picture, after all, helps illustrate a
story much better in many cases than the use
of usual words. Especially for such a writer like
me who is not gifted to use words better than
what a picture can do for my global readership!
Inside The Palace Courtyard That
Cannot Be Seen From The Outside.
The Lambeth Palace Library was extraordinary
with books going back to almost the beginning of
printing and book making. Sacked high on shelves
reaching perhaps 12ft. high, the thousands of
antiquarian books were neatly and orderly indexed.
Not just rare books on theology and eccelesiastical
history did I see as I browsed the shelves, but
equally rare old books on heraldry, church music,
English history, lexicography, medicine, Canon Law,
clergy dress, liturgiology, diplomatic protocol,
religious rites, and so and so forth. In others
words, a grand library that even in a life time I
suspect few could read every book, manuscript,
and doucment within the Lambeth Palace Library.
As I browsed the books, I also thought of those
archbishops from Cranmer to Coggan who had
used the outstanding library themselves. And
more recently, knowing that Pope Benedict
XVI had viewed the library and undoubtedly
was impressed himself. If he wasn't, I sure was!
Many of the leather bound books were huge and
thick in size, too. Some seemed so heavy to even
pick up and read. Without a doubt the list of
books were priceless and treasured beyond what-
ever market value could be rendered. Although
it would not be foolish to say such a library today
would fetch millions of pounds on the book market,
if such was ever put up for sale. God forbid!!
Some of the books are so rare, their extreme
rarity crowns them. I would just love to own a
couple of them in my own cheap and battered
book collection. And even better I wish I had
had the chance to actually sit down and to have
read some of them from beginning to end inside
the remarkable and private library of
the archbishops.
Entering The Palace, Visitors See This.
Along with such rare books, 15th to 19th
century hand-coloured prints and detailed
woodcuts of Lambeth Palace could be viewed
by visitors and guests alike. There was not
enough time given to be able to see every
thing in the historic collection. Spacious and
and airy was the library with perhaps 100
bookshelves to hold a thousand books each.
The furniture and reading tables blended
well with the high ceilling and panelled walls.
The silence in the library was almost deafen-
ing, too, despite the party of 20 other
visitors eagerly present and correct.

I will as soon as I can get back to my keyboard
to write perhaps some more about my Lambeth
Palace experience, I will do so after now returning
from Canterbury and visiting there overnight with
two clergy friends of mine at the Diocese of Canter-
bury. Had a lovely weekend, I must say ...+

No Problem! The UK Welcomes You!Just Bring Your Barbarity & Violence With U!
Come Meet Again Robert Paterson, The
Ill-Mannered Anglican Cleric of Sodor & Man.
Talking About The Pope At Lambeth.By Uncle Monty..
He seemed such a nice and friendly chap when
we bumped into each other just moments
after he’d met with Pope Benedict XVI and
Archbishop Rowan Williams during the Pope’s
Papal Visit to Lambeth Palace. He was nicely
dressed in his consecrated role was the man
from the Isle of Man..
His name was Robert Paterson (with one
T only) who holds the Anglican bishopic of
Sodor and Man. I asked if I could photograph
him and he happily complied with my request.
The image I took of him had Lambeth Palace
clearly in the background. It was a fitting picture
for any Anglican bishop to be proud of. But not
so it seems with Robert Paterson, M.A.
I was delighted to included him in perhaps
several hundreds of other archbishops and
bishops that I have photographed over many
years from all around the world and the world-
wide Anglican Communion especially as part of
what I call my “Pictorial Eccelesiastic Collection.”.
A few days later, I sent Robert Paterson the
photo I had taken of him at Lambeth to his
secretary. Bingo! Got no word of thanks did
I from his secretary nor from him
at the Isle of Man..
So I waited another week to see if some
kind of nice message of thanks to me might
arrive at my inbox. Nothing came. So I sent
Robert, his secretary and his chaplain a simple
message via my next e-mail. “Hello again Bishop
Robert: Did you not like the image I sent of you
at Lambeth? And if so, is that why you have
not sent a thank you to me? Truly, Monty."
And, again not only was my photo ignored but
also my last message to the Diocese of Sodor
and Man. The principle here is simply one of
good Anglican and bishopic manners that Robert
refused to give or express or his secretary or his
own chaplain. Surely, a decent bishop shouldn’t
act like that? What is wrong with these people
who call themselves Anglican like me?
Whatever, I have now put him among my gallery
of “ill-mannered clerics” that contains Robert
Paterson, along with rude Peter Broadbent, the
"mod" Bishop of Willesden dressed in his worker
jeans and once secretary to then ABC George
Leonard Carey; and that bogus and bastard
“Episcopal bishop" of Loveland, Colorado, USA.

Feedback & Comments
No Bull Here. By Uncle Monty.
I am amazed at the constant volume of
feedback and comments to me from around
the globe. I thank you all for contacting me
and also sharing your opinions and ideas on
a variety of topics and on the stories I have
written and the photos that I have posted for
you all to see. I like especially full and detailed
information and titbits sent to me about the
people or the subjects or the events I have
written about. Please be assured I welcome
all information about whatever takes your
fancy and thus feel free to confidentially in-
form me of what you have. Your images and
stories about folks I have already mentioned,
or that I want to write about, on my megablogs
are always welcome. Some of those images
you've already sent I will most certainly use
when the time comes for me to do so. Story
ideas, I like too, from anybody who wishes to
offer them. But please, don't send commercial
ads or banners for me to use online. No advert-
ising of any sort will I accept. Nor donations, no
matter how kindly offered, do I wish or accept
unless I know you personally and in person.
I don't send personal banking or family details
to anybody no matter how enticing such may be
with offers like giving me $26 Million just for me!
How crazy some folkz are and so greedy, too?
Plus, so stupid that they are and need to be
locked up for their own good and for us all!!
