The news is generally, er, good.......

This week, I am determined to accentuate the positive.

However, listening to the news on the wireless, there seems to be a dearth of anything remotely good.

Libya is in flames.

Doctors are saying the government must increase the price of alcohol to prevent a liver disease epidemic.

'Dave' Cameron is going to sell off virtually everything in sight to private owners under the entirely mendacious cover of "The Big Society".

More locally, some spotty oik in A Well Known High Street Electronics Retailer has properly annoyed Amy Duck. (See Lucky Duck's blog).

All in all, more than enough to send a grown man reaching for the Citilopram......

So now, the good news.

Mum and Dad celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary at the weekend.

We all had an an absolutely brilliant time!

Nigh-on seventy friends and relatives joined Mum and Dad for lunch at a local restaurant on Saturday, which was excellent, then went back to theirs for a continuation of the party. Everyone then had a short breather before coming round for a buffet lunch on Sunday.

It was all just lovely, so thanks Mum and Dad!! And well done for Fifty Years of happy marriage!

Further good news: The Conservancy of the River Cam has backed down for now on the highly contentious issue of charging powered craft an additional licence for having the bad luck to be moored in these waters.

(By the way, the wide-beam brethren I called on for aid in the January post "War is declared" have now been re-tasked. They're going round to Maplins to 'have a word'........).

Also, the Secretary of State has just been forced into the sort of screeching u-turn that used to be the sole province of T.V. detective Jim Rockford. (If you're under the age of thirty-five, you may have to Google that one.....) Yes, it seems The Big Society has delivered the biggest raspberry to 'Dave' and his cronies plans to sell off our forests and woodlands.

Y-E-E-E-E-S!!!!!! RESULT!!!!!! And, dare I say it, HURRAH!!!!!!
