NEWS - SEASON'S GREETINGS
Collectors, world-wide mind you, have asked me to publish the full catalogue of the 'Season's Greetings' cards that I have created and posted over the years.
Not for the purposes of updating their collections I believe, but rather to determine their dispositions towards the Ringwood Road Company
should they discover that they have been left off the mailing list at any time.
As you might know, scrolls and scrolls of parchment, filled with deeply sincere words of apology have been dispatched, to all corners
of the globe, reassuring said 'Collectors' that it could only be the fault of the UK/EU Post Offices getting even with us for not sticking the
stamps on the envelopes with good quality spit.
So please visit the archive created for you and compare your gallery. While most cards and posters have 'sold out', some have been reserved for the dear
souls who are suffering pangs of exclusion and dispair. GO TO:

NEWSLETTER - NOVEMBER 2021
I found this ad on the facsimile of the front page of 'The Manchester Guardian' of May 5th 1821, a celebration of 200 years of publishing the newspaper. I've appropriated it - with apologies.
Maker of Fine Graffiti and Arte Politic,
IMPRESSED with gratitude for favours already received, begs to offer his sincere thanks to those Friends who have so liberally supported him, as well as to the Public in general, and hopes by continuing to display his best works, and an unremitting attention, to merit a continuance of their favours.
L.B. embraces this opportunity of informing his Friends and the Public, that he has a new handsome Portfolio, &c., hereunder-mentioned and continues to pay every attention to the to the views, of said Friends and Public, on the most enjoyable terms. (Well, sort of!)
Ref.: The Manchester Guardian, Manchester, May 5th, 1821.
MORE BRAGGING FROM THE ARCHIVE
Yes, The Guardian: You may be interested in this note from my autobiography, "My Autobiography", to be published in lights sometime in the distant future.

Found this in the archives. The first and only letter, of the few I have submitted over the years to the Editor of 'The Guardian'.

NOTES FROM THE CHOOK-HOUSE
My beloved son, the well known to many of you, KFBB, graduated from Cambridge University, where his affiliation was Jesus College, much to the embarrassment of his atheistic father
LVFB. When Jesus College decided to return the Benin Bronze, 'The OKUKOR' - which had been 'gifted' to it years ago by some 'son of a looter' - to the people of Benin, Nigeria,
it seemed appropriate to celebrate this with a typically Aussi headline [as above]. Also see:
