"There are two pips in a beaut, four beauts in a lulu,
Eight lulus in a doozy, and sixteen doozies in a humdinger.

No one knows how many humdingers
there are in a lollapalooza."

A couple of years ago I took steps to try and have Princess Anne become a Patron of the International Lighthouse Lightship Weekend, ILLW, which would have give the event royal patronage and a huge boost morale and standing wise. Unfortunately the Palace informed me that she had to decline our kind invitation on this occasion.
Bummer! :cry:

Why are the free gifts always given to those who can afford to buy them? I never get a free painting when I visit a lighthouse :?
