Daily: 20th January 2011

Those of you looking for Alex’s post may be disappointed as he is not writing it today. Rather than ask for volunteers to cover for him Alex dived into the comments and found Steven and Kai and volunteered them...us.

Normally doing a daily is not a big deal but people expect something special from Alex and we don’t like to leave anyone disappointed. We knocked around a few suggestions but it was Christine who gave us the idea of fighting a duel. Unfortunately as we are on different continents pistols or sabres were not really an option and fighting a duel with computer viruses or intercontinental ballistic missiles seems somehow unsporting. So we decided to give you a song. Dueling songs are hard to come by especially as neither of us knows how to drive a banjo so we resorted to the old classic of out-boasting each other, thanks to "Annie Get Your Gun".

Please join in with the choruses as there is no-one listening and we will see you in the comments.
