      I registered on this forum one year ago today. And today I reach my century of posts.

      Cricket enthusiasts regard centuries as things of great importance. If a batsman scores 99 – great gloom. 100 – ecstasy.

      I have nothing special to say to celebrate my bell post century. I’m still hoping others will have a go at a bell blog. I put a piece about my blogs in my village magazine to encourage some interest in the world of bells. I have had a lot of feedback. Two local newspapers have decided to publish features about my bell collecting. I’ve been asked to give a presentation to a local group.

      I took delivery of two special bells recently. I was at Wembley in 1966 when England won the soccer World Cup. And I watched England win the Rugby World Cup in 2003. So I had an idea at long last to commemorate these events by having two bells made and suitably engraved.

      My next project is to have a frame made upon which to display an old Mears & Co Tower bell.

      And I’m thinking of starting a small collection of bicyle bells.

      But right now I’m off to spend another delightful morning with my beautiful wife of over 40 years before watching the FA Cup Final between Manchester United and Chelsea at the new Wembley Stadium (Cost £750 million) this afternoon. Now if that means nothing to you, you really need to know a little more about England.

      I’m a bit sad at present. Manchester United lost. Football’s a bit like life. No justice.

      I will search for some inspiration about a contribution to the Bell Tower.

      Congratulations Peter. Wouldn’t it be nice if many more members contributed as much as you?
