Happy new year, everyone!

Here's to Roger summarising the year's events for me again next year to save me having to listen to the news.

Outpourings / All the best for 2019!

I hope you all have a terrific year and that it brings you health and happiness.

Generally speaking, 2018 was both weird and scary. Here in the U.K., the ludicrous Brexit situation has become more embarrassing with each passing day and there is no end in sight. Across the Atlantic, the Leader of the Western World continues to make my jaw drop. The man is beyond parody. He closed the year by telling a seven-year-old that Santa Claus didn't exist while insisting that building a wall between his country and its southern neighbours was a good idea. And those were his better moments. Back in the U.K., we had Russian tourists who were desperate to see Salisbury cathedral for some strange reason. What happened afterwards was entirely coincidental. Then we had the usual wars. Isn't it strange how governments can't afford to support healthcare systems but always find money for wars?

Oh, but it wasn't all bad and I certainly had a few laughs on this site. Thank you! Let me repeat my opening line...

I hope you all have a terrific year and that it brings you health and happiness.

A cold and a pulled muscle in my back sums up this year for me.

I believe Rob has all the strips. They need scanning, cropping, cleaning up and putting online. It's a lot of work and not something any one person can or ought to do.

Have all the strips been made into books?  I have books 3-19, The Colour Collection, The Return of Beau Peep and, thanks to Diane, a printout of Book 1.

Looks like you have all bar one of the books Bill. 
Twenty-one Beau Peep books have been published in the UK -- Books 1 to 19, plus the un-numbered 'Colour Collection', and 'The Return of Beau Peep'.   
Only Books 1 and 2 reprinted every strip from the Star since it's launch in 1978. The books thereafter only carried selected reprints.  There's many thousands of strips lying in the archive unseen again since the day they were printed in the paper.


They owe it to the world to let people see those strips online!

How is everyone doing? Too much food? Drinks? Weird gifts? Relatives? Full Moon?

I found myself on a short rope between the stove and the sink as apparently I raised a bunch of lazy, but constantly hungry, sods.

I am putting my feet up now though and enjoying watching the Call the Midwife past and current Christmas Specials - I find that playing those shows clear all the menfolk out the room.

Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season :-)
