Victoria and I can’t thank you all enough for the warm reception you’ve given the debut of Number One London. We’re dead chuffed. We wanted to thank Jody for suggesting that we add the link to The Proceedings of the Old Bailey online to our Interesting Websites link, which we did immediately. Many thanks as well to Bozzy (aka Sue Ellen Welfonder), Diane Perkins from Risky Regencies and to everyone else who has been championing our blog. Jody’s email also prompted us to clarify and stress that Number One London was created as a site for us all to share, so please feel free to email your comments, suggestions, guest blogs, pictures, links and, most especially, your on-dits and bits of English nonsense. We truly want you to think of Number One London as home.
