This cheered me up:


Here he is, speaking to us across all these centuries:

Love it! I think there are probably more such selfies than is generally realised, especially from the late middle ages, peeping out of stone and wood carving in out of the way parts of churches. I know a mason who worked on an Oxford college who was encouraged to carve caricatures of some of the Fellows - and of himself - when restoring the buildings, so the custom has not been lost.

Hoo can there be a second Liz when the first yin's never bin?
She's Queen Elizabeth I of Scots. But in a bulletin for Nigeria, I'd have put
'Di Queen make am Knight ... for Holyrood Palace in Scotland.'
I'm sure if they'd just said 'Di Queen', that would have sufficed -
Nigeria is in the Commonwealth, of which the Queen is still the head,
I'm sure speakers of Nigerian Pidgin would be in no doubt which Queen they were referring to.

Back when the Queen succeeded to the throne, some new letterboxes were installed in Scotland bearing the legend E II R. It was pointed out quickly, politely but firmly that this was incorrect, so all 'Elizabethan' letterboxes in Scotland simply have ER.

this is what the oldsters were led astray by when they were youngsters:

Oh yeah I remember Pan's People - they were great but I was just a little girl when they were at their height. It was Hot Gossip that did it for me as a teenager - Ooooh Sarah Brightman used to get me really excited :p

By which I mean she did then and she still does today :p

this is what the oldsters were led astray by when they were youngsters:

The modern generation don't realise how we oldsters suffered back then.
Having to try to watch Pans People on a blurry black & white TV, with Mum and Dad in the room, and Dad saying "How much longer do you want to watch this rubbish, son?"
I still wonder if this question was his way of deflecting his interest in the girls away from my mother?
