The collected opinions of an august and aristocratic personage who, despite her body having succumbed to the ravages of time, yet retains the keen intellect, mordant wit and utter want of tact for which she was so universally lauded in her younger days. Being of a generation unequal to the mysterious demands of the computing device, Lady Bracknell relies on the good offices of her Editor for assistance with the technological aspects of her journal.

Lady Bracknell is indebted to a gentleman

It will not have gone unnoticed by regular readers that Lady Bracknell's profile has been updated to include a rather handsome portrait of the author.

She is reproducing the portrait again here in a rather larger format so that her readers may reap the full benefit of the sterling work undertaken by a very kind - if somewhat unhinged - gentleman who describes himself as being happily enslaved to the whims of his Siamese cat.

The gentleman has, in correspondence with ler ladyship, intimated that further examples of his skill with graphics are pending. Her ladyship's readers are therefore advised to check back regularly for the publication of more instances of the gentleman in question's admirable and enviable skills.

Gentleman? This madam is the work of an escapee from Bedlam. The poor deluded wretch was sentenced to incarceration for life. And quite rightly so! Hrrumph!

For what you say? Why for flinging an effigy of the late HRH Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha made out of Lord Melbournes hair at the Royal Entourage! Disgraceful, what? I would have had the man Hung, drawn and quatered as an example! Hrrumph!

Persons who hide behind a mask of anonymity can hardly expect Lady Bracknell to pay their opinions much heed.

She is fond of the gentleman in question and is therefore prepared to overlook any suggestion that he might be, in some small way, psychologically unbalanced.

Indeed, if Lady Bracknell were too enquire too closely into her own antecedents, it might well be that she would find some slightly unbalanced skeletons in the family closet.

Oh, If your ladyship and her butler ever come to visit Welwyn Garden City in Hertfordshire do feel free to pop in to Miss Katie's humble abode for a cup of tea!

Pardon me if I cause you any offence from this post your ladyship, I have just looked at your picture again and seen that it is excatly like a picture that is hanging up in my family's house.

Are you the lady that is definately in our picture gallery? And you are realated to the Fraser family to which I am a daughter of the family?

Sorry if this has caused offence it just seems strange and wierd.

Lady Bracknell is not offended, but can confirm that she has no connection with the Fraser family and that she hails from the North of England.

My dear Lady B,

I was somewhat surprised to see the portrait that adorns you're diary. You claim it is of the author!!

I cannot believe this because the portrait is the living spit of your secretary cmpanion in her younger years. Are you by any chance related?

Does Master Marmite struggle to understand the concept of a fictional construct?

As he well knows, the photograph is of the editor's great grandmamma. A doughty lady who was several decades older than the editor is currently when this picture was taken.

Lady Bracknell, I thought it would interest your readers (and perhaps yourself if you were not yet aware) that this blog has gained notoriety today after being praised by none other than that great primate journalist of our time, Mr Crippled Monkey.

The Boy Marmite is also mentioned, but naturally in the paragraph below her Ladyship. The BBC has not yet adopted the ridiculous modern fashion for ignoring social hierarchies.
