A little more more humour perhaps

Here is some more of what you have come to expect from the earlier pages.

Important Announcement

The Council of the European Community Commissioners has announced that agreement has been reached to adopt English as the preferred language for European communications, rather than German, which was the other possibility.

As part of the negotiations, Her Majesty's Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a five year phased plan for what will be known as EuroEnglish (Euro for short).

In the first year, 's' will be used instead of the soft 'c'. Sertainly, sivil servants will resieve this news with joy. Also the hard 'c' will be replaced with 'k'. Not only will this klear up konfusion, but keyboards kan have one less letter.

There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year, when the troublesome 'ph' will be replaced by 'f'. This will make words like 'fotograf' 20 persent shorter.

In the third year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more complikated changes are possible. Governments will enkourage the removal of double leters, which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horible mes of silent 'e's in the languag is disgrasful, and they would go.

By the fourth year, peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such as replsing 'th' by 'z', and 'w' by 'v', and 'y' with 'i', with yet anozer leter dropd from ze kiboard.

During ze fifz year, ze unesesary 'o' kan be dropd from vords kontaining 'ou', and similar changes vud of kors be aplid to ozer kombinations of leters.

After zis fifz ier, ve vil hav a reli sensibl riten styl. Zer vil be no mor trubls or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi tu understand ech ozer.

Photo Opportunity

Here is my lastest photo, specially prepared for all you voyers out there.
When you have finished oggling at me, you can return to this page by hitting the little 'X' on the top left of the open window, and you will find this window still underneath, I hope.

Sorry I was late

I would have got this to you sooner but my optimal bottom line parameters failed to vertically integrate with the phase two maximum paradigm while implementing real-time, multi-functional simulations resulting in a non-viable utilisation strategy vis--vis project goals and prioritised communications objectives.
