Where was the video, Castor Boy?

I am here to report a fourth grandson!  This little (and he is so little - the first one we have seen more or less from birth and just 6lb 11 oz at birth) one is called Hugo Jett.  They like modern names (I know Hugo's history goes back a long way, but it seems to have become somewhat more popular in English-speaking countries recently) and names that are just a little bit posh, and my son wants names he hasn't seen on students he has taught, which after a while does limit you to either very old-fashioned names or names rising in popularity.  

Anyway a dear little boy, who seems quite a contented baby.  They are coming here for Easter lunch, which will include home-made hot-cross buns.

Congratulations to you and your family, Caro.  It must be lovely to see your new grandson from so young, too.

My English teacher at school said that there were a number of names she would not consider giving to her baby as they reminded her of particular pupils.  This resulted in an amusing discussion, but I can't remember what she called her daughter in the end.

Congratulations all round, Caro. I think Hugo is a distinctive name and I don't believe it can be shortened. We have only three grandsons along with two granddaughters. They all came to our house for Easter Sunday so we caught up with all the gossip.

I've highlighted the link and it is still available - some of these newspaper links drop out after a while.

Just an update on the Devonport library (the link is on the above post) which is on the short list for the Public Library of the Year Award run by the Danish government. It is proving so popular that nearly 100,000 visits were made in the latest quarterly period available February to April - twice that for the old library last year.
