There's nothing like a sense of what's important...

My parents have just received a letter requesting a donation to fund replacement cricket nets in the village. It begins:

'What a year for cricket 2005 was - England won the ashes and what's more AnyVillage CC were champions of the AnyCounty independent cricket league'

I have to admit I laughed. It's something like beginning a letter:

'What a year for peace 200x was - the Arab-Israeli conflict was resolved after lengthy international talks, the Middle East became a haven for free speech and democracy, and what's more Mr Bloggs and Mrs Smith agreed over the positioning of their small herbaceous border'
