A Diamond Jubilee Christmas present to you all, as promised the December Safety Fast newsletter article by Neil Cairns has been added to the Newsletter page.  Also added today to Artist's Impressions is this year's Christmas card from Jack Murray.

Also added today to the Ys on Film  ... and other media page is the video clip file from Malta Story.  Despite many efforts we have been unable to track down the copyright holder.  If you are the copyright holder, please contact the Webmaster as we do like to obtain permission to use stuff first normally and would like to follow up with you.

Wishing all Y owners everywhere a merry Christmas, and a happy new year for 2008.  Happy holidays.
