My blog is now 2 years old – taking in account the start at blogger before the move to WordPress – and I want to celebrate it with some blues music of Katie Melua… Far away…Also some chess! I’ve come across this beautiful Alice in Wonderland Chess set and was wondering if someone could buy it as a pressie for me – a blog pressie…hahaI apologise, I had to remove the movie I had uploaded here due to problems it caused for some people in their web browsers. I have the music file of Katie to listen to.

Listen to the Exhortation of the Dawn!
Look to this Day!
For it is Life, the very Life of Life.
In its brief course lie all the
Verities and Realities of your Existence.
The Bliss of Growth,
The Glory of Action,

And every Tomorrow a Vision of Hope.
Look well therefore to this Day!
Such is the Salutation of the Dawn!
