Hello, history lovers!
It is with adrenalin pumping through my veins that I write today, as I am so overloaded with history that my excitement levels have reached critical. I really, ruddy love history, you know.
But first thing's first - it is a pleasure to announce that The Astonishing Adventures of Lord Likely has been selected as 'Blog of the Day' by those fine, fine folk over at Fuel My Blog. This is a wonderful honour for me, and I thank them very much.
Fuel My Blog is a fine website, and if YOU have a blog and have not joined their merry masses yet, I urge you to do so. You shall find a wonderful, warm welcome, and the chance to meet fellow bloggers from all over the globe. Even if you do not have a blog, you should still visit them anyway, as you will find a portal to a host of other wondrous blogs. Such as The Astonishing Adventures of Lord Likely, for example. Which is Blog of the Day today. Did I mention that already?
Click the beautiful award (which we won for being Blog of the Day today, as I may have already touched upon) to visit Fuel My Blog - NOW! And do not forget to fuel Likely's journals once you're there. I thank you.
Now, to history. Loyal Likelyiers may have already seen his lordship's latest entry, where he attempts to map out his family tree. This particular article made me moist with anticipation (I sweated a lot, you see) as it revealed a bit more history (which I love) and back story of our beloved lord. I was like a kid in a candy shop, except the candy was filled with HISTORY.
In addition to all this, my good friend Bill Blunt sent me a picture of a possible Likely sighting on an Italian restaurant's shop sign, in Ferryhill. Could it be his lordship, or one of his many relatives? Look for yourself below theses words I am writing now:
What do you think? Likely, or not?
Actually, this has given me an idea for an exciting competition, which I shall call Look-A-Likely. If any of you dear readers have stumbled upon a picture of someone who resembles our lordship, then please let me know, by either posting the picture in the comments section, or a link to the picture, or by e-mailing it to me via andy fanton at googlemail dot com The winner shall win....something. Something good, from my collection of historical artifacts, no doubt.
