First Post

Reflecting on the history of the blog, I noticed that it is nearly 3 years old. The very first post was on the 31st August 2009, and called "Interesting People, Interesting Places".
We were so excited when we had 9 readers!

Ben asked me this evening to say a big "Thank you" to everyone. He will be blogging live (i.e. not via me and the Royal Mail) from midweek, and maybe even on his way home on the day his is released. His brother is picking him up at the gate and has an i-pad, so it is quite likely!

Any suggestions on the new title (Ben-decompressing-from-Prison-Blog?) would be welcome!
