Someone left the cake out in the rain

smiley - cupcake This page has taken me 11 years to build, as it has been here for so long I think I will just leave it all here where I can see it as long as it keeps working. It seems to have survived the change from BBC to h2g2 quite well, much better than the change from h2g2 to BBC which left only my little boxes for decoration.

I seem to be part of the new h2g2 promotion to be creative smiley - artistU14992038. My tip is that it doesn't matter if you don't know what you are doing most of the time. You can still have a pretty user page.

I am the Keeper of Sooty and Sweep
because Sooty is my favourite thing.smiley - magic
I did have a picture of Sootysmiley - wizard and Sweepsmiley - dog
here but due to the new BBC restrictions (In 2001 the BBC took over h2g2 and stopped all links to pictures except their own) ,
I have had to improvise with h2g2 Picture blobs.
