Yes it’s the 28th October 2012 and All Change Please! is three years old today, and growing fast. No longer in its Terrible Twos, it’s learnt to stand firmly on its own two feet. More importantly it is starting to ask important questions such as who, what, where, and, most frequently, why on earth not? Socially, it enjoys making others laugh and being silly. As a result its proud parents are convinced it is highly gifted and have started saving to ensure it will gain a place at Oxbridge in the not too distant future, providing, of course, that it gets to go to e-ton first.
It just doesn’t seem like three years ago that out popped Going for Gold, its very first post, when it announced that the London 2012 Olympic Selection Committee had decided only to award gold medals for outstanding performance in the 100 meters for fear of dumbing down the games. In the end, of course, that didn’t happen.
