Arrrr! Yea, it be nigh once more -- so make like Black Ethel and show yer yar! Stir ye'self to gabble like a pirate today, if you know what's good fer ye! Why not read piratical adventures like The Mangrove Legacy?
UPDATE: A fetching photo of this year's version of Black Ethel! Stop by and tell her how you admire it. I'm so envious -- I swear Cheryl cannot take a bad picture.
