    It is a bit late to remind you all but try and light a candle tonight between 10 and 11 pm to remember those that gave their lives for us starting 100 years ago today.

    LIGHTS OUT - The Royal British Legion.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    2013's appeal raised £39m (beating their goal of £37m) and this year they're aiming to hit £40m.

    Even more events this year, including the Centenary of the Great War.

    If you'd like to support, please go here - Donate - The Royal British Legion. - and do your bit.

    I'm sure a few of you managed to get your mits on one of the 888,246 ceramic poppies from the Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red installation at the Tower of London. I managed to purchase three (two as gifts (one of which went to a WWII Veteran) and one for myself).

    We've had some big milestones over the last year, 70th anniversaries of VJ Day - VJ Day 70 through a veteran's eyes - and VE Day - VE Day 70 Reception - among the biggest.

    If you'd like to support the appeal, please go here >>> Ways to give | The Royal British Legion <<< and do your bit.

    Thank you.

    If you get the chance, there are a number of the poppies at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park until January. Well worth a visit. http://www.ysp.co.uk/
