Happy New Year

I finally surfaced from the revelry to find some familiar names in this year's honours list.

Terry Pratchett gets a well deserved knighthood for his 'services to literature'. There's an example of Sir Terry's work below the belt.

Jazz musician Courtney Pine, receives a CBE (services to jazz music), actress Liz Smith becomes an MBE (services to drama) and, most surprisingly, guitarist Iain David McGeachy gets an OBE for services to music. So here is the lad at his best. AKA John Martyn:

Oh and someone called Plant gets a CBE too.

As promised, dive below for a Pratchett goodie.
