Yes, it was my 54th birthday today and I would like to thank both of you who sent me a card, but it's still not a national holiday... yet! However today was a day of national historical importance.
Today Birmingham celebrated the 201st anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar and mourned the death of Lord Horatio Nelson in the engagement.
I have not finished the details of the whole presentation yet, meanwhile it is quite late and I have nearly finished a bottle of magnificent Nelson's Column Strong Ale from the Tunnel Brewery and I am seriously regretting not laying in a couple more bottles.
I will complete the event details over the next couple of days. Enjoy.
