    Wow, my sincere compliments!

    Did they explain you that the tradition of the award requires you to celebrate by paying a dinner to each member of this forum, in the most exclusive and expensive restaurant in the city? :D

    Congratulations.
    Even after winning such a prestigous award. Nobody actually managed to get a personal interview with you.:(

    Although being a humble man like you are, life will go on as normal.:rolleyes:

    It was actually all over Shanghai in China and StrandedMariner happened to watch TV and picked it up and so kindly send me the link so us all can savor the moment.

    I have one worry though about all this sudden fame and coming Knighthood - how does one address that ugly old shag in London and do I have to do that funny woman kneel thing when I greet her :confused: :?:

    Bugger, that was a damn fine bit of editing and manipulation - pity no one could mention your name - unpronounceable ?

    FAR BETTER THAN THAT YOU ARE PUBLISHED ON THE INTERNET....... with viewers in the billions....
