Well, whilst I’ve been hiding away in foreign lands, avoiding paid work and neglecting my bearder.com responsibilities, it seems that the rest of my family have been quite busy achieving great things…
Dad won the Queens award for excellence in Higher Education, last month Pete (the youngest Bearder) won the UK Poetry Slam championship and now, to top both of them, Mrs Catherine Bearder (mum) has been elected to represent the UK in the European Parliament! Mrs Bearder MEP I no less :-)
So, I dedicate this post to their victories and hard work and give them all a big Internet style ‘virtual’ slap on the back.
Oh, and whilst I’m here – here’s a link to a very interesting website: Ted.com
Oh, and for those who don’t know, I’m back on the Island (Great Britain) and back in the Shire (Oxford).
