Procurator Craddickius - hey, it is traditional to post your pics, man. Lively pics of you and your wife waving from atop sequoia trees, or climbing up the sheer rock faces of prominent rock outcroppings. Otherwise, we might think that you sloughed off the American virtues of John Muir and took up the American vices of Dean Martin and spent all your time lounging around casinos in Las Vegas, eventually reduced to pawning your copy of Wilhelm Röpke's Gesammelte Werke for jetfare home. We wouldn't want to think that!

Thanks! - I'll rummage through the pics to see if there's anything that might be of interest.

However, it will be tough to beat that one of you on your yacht, wind blowing through your hair and all. I know that Lil' Kim was sunbathing at the front of the vessel ;)

Paul, you caught me. Hey, I aspire to the mythical state of being a limousine liberal - I just need someonw to give me a limoUsine. I'll settle for a moped, though.

I was thinking about proposing to set up a creche in Roger's front yard, but I didn't know how to spell it. I looked it up in Wikipedia and found this gem:

In Catalonia and the Basque Country, hiding in the background of the nativity scene is the caganer (Catalan "crapper"), a figure of a defecating man. There is no attempt at incorporating the figure into the narrative of the nativity; he is apparently a reflection of Catalan irreverence and scatological humour. Large public cribs often have a caricature of a disliked public figure as the caganer.

So, Roger or Paul, who would be your crapper this year?
