Default Hello Lovely Loonies !!

Well, It's that time of year again but I guess I haven't been feeling too festive or full of the joys... for obvious reasons. It has been a pretty crap year all round for most people, in many ways, but that's certainly not the fault of anyone here and shouldn't be any reason for not doing my customary Christmas salute to you lovely loons.

So firstly, can I on behalf of Duncan, my family, and myself, thank all those kind people who sent such lovely messages of condolence for my father to me personally and on this and other boards. Also the hundreds who came to pay their respects in person at the funeral, it meant so much to my family, and personally I want to thank Wingy, Animal, Jem, Normsky, Early B and Astro for being there, love you guys.

Secondly, of course, I have to thank you all for the many birthday greetings you send to me every year. It may not make me feel any younger but it does make me feel a little more loved and certainly cheers me up receiving and reading them all, so many thanks and much love to you all for your thoughtfulness.

Thirdly, as ever, thanks for being here. You really have no idea how much your affection and support means to us and keeps us going. Without you there would be no point, so please stick around and we will too.

Finally, I am frighteningly overweight still, but now two years a non smoker, must be glad for that and persevere with the dieting after the Christmas break, though I must admit, it gets harder as I get older.
Finally, finally, the Album is coming......honest! In fact we have promised delivery by the end of Jan so, soon come. What a lazy bunch of b******s (bouncers, obviously) we've become!

As a matter of interest, it was the 30th of Dec that I addressed you all last year so maybe this can become the new tradition. It would certainly be easier for me (and less guilt ridden) after the stuffing of the turkey into my face and the family festivities have taken place and the pace slowed somewhat.

Anyway, I hope you all had a marvellous Christmas and I wish you all you would wish for yourselves in the New Year!

Thanks again and big love,
RBC xxx

Perhaps we should be calling this, "The RBC annual New Years Greeting" instead, that way you won't look like such a slacker

Happy New Year to you too, here's to health and prosperity!!

Default Much love !!

My best wishes to you and your entire family Robin, as well for all the loonies over here. I know personally know how does it feels to loose a loved one but all good memories and lessons learned are still present: a father represents a big portion of our personality.

On the other hand, Im so happy to know that a new release is coming soon, you know that new UB40 music is a vitamin we must take each certain time so please give us some of the ital vital!

My best wishes for you all this 2013!

Your always friend from Peru;

Everyone that's looking at this shoul be hea no thea... C U Laya
