Approved By The World Blog Council

All this time and I didn't realise that I should have applied for approval from the World Blog Council before writing a word. Still, it's sorted now and I have to say I'm flattered by their kind words. And, as I submitted in my application to the council, I feel it my duty as a Blogger from Oldham to get some sort of council approval, I'm guessing that Oldhamers are more likely to pay attention to the WBC than they do to the dear old Oldham Metropolitan Borough Council.

Mind you judging by the decisions of Oldham Council over the years - including a multi million pound shopping centre build in the seventies, never fully occupied and then knocked down twenty years later; a Police Station built the wrong way round (or is that an urban myth); and a swimming pool a tile's width too short for proper competitions to be held there - the committees of our local council use similar decision making processes to the WBC.

So they're not completely bad then!

Cynicism and bitterness are two of your less attractive traits as I am sure your downtrodden wife would testify.
As an executive member of the World Blogger Council, may I warn you that your blog is under very close scrutiny re. its continuation. Less egocentricity and less nostalgic reveries required!

Thanks to those who left comments (Dante and Lisa)...erm I actually deleted them by mistake, I don't suppose you'd...no, never mind!

No worthier a bearer of the mantle can be found this side of the Pennines. Unless you include me, of course. I thought those WBC folk had gone off an a sabbatical somewhere, so it's nice to see they are still filtering the mediocre so carefully.

Congratulations!

Charming! Now if only I could remember what I put. . . .
Oh yes, Oldham Council spending £100,000 on a logo that looks like a polo mint in a bubble that a child has drawn, then telling 800 of it's staff they'll be losing their jobs. Great bit of work there councillors.

Now, DON'T DELETE THIS ONE!!!!
