A Minister For Propaganda Elf Writes …


As all three regular readers will be aware, most CAP readers only stop off at this blog in order to click through to Lilyput’s World, which blog contains the continuing adventures of a little girl’s quest to pack as much fun into each and every day as is humanly possible. The more eagle-eyed among you will have noticed that I’ve taken down that link, and those of you who are regular visitors to Lilyput’s World may also have noticed that you’ve been blocked out. There are no sinister reasons behind the change, I’m glad to say; it’s just that the Princess Lilyput has started to get a little fussier about who gets to visit her court. If you’d like to be added to the VIP list, please feel free to drop me a line at dbrodb[at]gmail.com, and I’ll be delighted to do so. In the meantime, boopy-doop.

Beautiful picture!

And I think it is a good idea to consider your daughter´s privacy now that she is growing up. I have enjoyed visiting her occasionally (on gray days), but she did not choose to be born by a writer and blogger.

Best wishes to Lilyput and her court.

One down, two to go then. I promise to behave.

Some of the time.

I'll miss Lilyput's input, but it's a wise parent who protects his child in this era of Internet prying.

I'm thinking Dec is just jealous that Lily is generating more hits than CAP is. Face it Dec, she's a natural. ;) Good for you for protecting her.
