Honours list observations

Congratulations all: especially to Sir Christopher Lee, of course, and to Mrs Anderson my goddaughter's head teacher, who becomes an OBE; as does Peter Dickinson, author of the Changes trilogy whose television adaptation I watched avidly as a five-year-old.

ETA: Robin Myers, the bibliographic historian, gets an MBE, which is well-deserved.

I suppose it doesn't contain a Sir Charles Daniels anywhere, does it? :-)

And I hope, should I ever be in a room with Robin Myers, that I will remember to say "she" and not "he"....

Most definitely a 'she', having certainly corresponded with her and probably met her briefly...

Sir Christopher's knighthood led to the amusing juxtaposition of Peter Mandelson's name with a picture of Dracula on the cover of yesterday's Telegraph!

You're not suggesting that the Telegraph might have some agenda here, are you?
