PETITE MAGIQUE AWARD GIVEAWAY: ….or “Hallelujah, it’s raining awards”

In 1987, the TV weather forecaster Michael Fish, a normally well-regarded personality on British screens until recently, famously failed to warn viewers of a massive hurricane which caused million of pounds of damage when it did hit our shores. The poor Mr. Fish soon became the butt of many jokes and comments from bemused (and roofless) members of the public. I would not have been surprised if he actually wished he was the animal that sounds like his surname and jumped into an ocean big enough to lay low in until the furore died down. Unlike Mikey, the man behind … Continue reading PETITE MAGIQUE AWARD GIVEAWAY: ….or “Hallelujah, it’s raining awards”

Vijay Shah This month just gets better and better on the awards front.
