|'Norway Spruce and Blue Cockerel' Trafalgar Square, London, Christmas 2013|
I would like to wish all readers of this website a Happy Christmas and a Peaceful and Prosperous New Year.
I took the picture above on a recent visit to London on a very gloomy morning. The artwork on the fourth plinth is by the German artist, Katharina Frisch, and the tree, of course, comes from Norway.
In addition to many readers from Suffolk and from other parts of the UK this year, the blog has also attracted a good number of hits from the U.S., Germany and China.
There have also been several readers in Russia, and I would like to take this opportunity to mention Mikhail Khordokovsky, who was released from a prison camp in Karelia in northern Russia, this week. Special Christmas Greetings to you, Mikhail Borisovich.
