Congrats are in order

New Years Day at Traigh Mhor
Cycling chums from my last career in England have just be awarded some more gongs for 2009. Aileen McGlynn - who has visited the island here - has been upgraded from MBE to OBE while her tandem pilot Ellen Hunter went straight to OBE. Anthony Kappes got an MBE and Chris Hoy got a bash on the shoulder with a sward and is now SIr Chris. Brilliant one and all.
I might add that all the gold medal winning cyclists got a gong of some sort - and well deserved it is too.
