Tim Berners-Lee, the British inventor of the world wide web, has received his knighthood from the Queen.
The "father of the web", who already has an OBE, went to Buckingham Palace to get his reward for "services to the global development of the internet".
A well deserved Knighthood in a time when too many honours are given out to 'celebs' for doing nothing much in the way of anything


Well what have we here, a new editor from Blogger, how nice. Maybe it will encourage me to post a bit more often than I am at the moment.
Shrek 2 was great by the way, I thoroughly recommend it, esp the furball scene 

Don't panic about the colour's I am just using them because they are there, it won't become common place.

June has never been a reliable summer month. "The polar front is responsible for bringing frontal systems and connected unsettled weather to the UK. In June, the ground and oceans are not warm enough to move the polar front reliably north and so allow the Azores high to stretch north over the UK, which would bring fine dry weather. This is why on average the weather in June is not reliably sunny, dry and warm.
