My blogworld friend Diane decided that it was time that I had some humour in my life. This followed by my blogworld friend Tikno commenting that it was nice to see a humorous post from me, when I posted about the light at the end of the tunnel, has pushed me into thinking that perhaps I need an image make over. May be I have been presenting either a grim or serious image of me, despite Conrad regularly implying that the glint in my eye may just mean that I can be wicked.
What better way to start off the image make over than reproducing here, what Diane had sent me in an email. While the younger lot of my readers may just find it amusing, I am sure that this is likely to lead to some serious introspection among the senior citizens of the webworld, Conrad included, whether he likes it or not.
