I just noticed that this blog got started in August of 2005. I think I've missed out one-year anniversary by a few weeks!
So where are we? We've had more than 7200 visits, 196 posts, scores of comments and hundreds of toy soldiers in that time.
Thanks very much to everyone wh has taken the time to cross over into the Duchy and take a look or who has even felt moved to post a comment here.
Looking forward to the next year where I can forsee war-clouds on the horizon; those blaggards in Vulgaria have been poaching OUR fish. It may be time to raise a regiment of Swiss and some more cavalry! Build some gun-boats!
You never ever know what the future may bring. Now that I think of it, we need fortress troops! and a seige-train!
Busy, busy, busy.
