Congratulations to the royal couple. It was wonderful to see this old tradition come to life, an especially delightful event given the understated grace exhibited by the wedding party. I wish these young people long life and happiness together.
All the best to Catherine and William.

To those simple-minded people wringing their hands and wailing in chat rooms that the wedding money should have been spent on the poor instead:
Stop what you're doing, sell your computer, and give all the money directly to the next poor person you encounter.
Go ahead. I'm waiting.

Happy New Year to all, and to all a good night
