This is my Christmas card to all of you 82 loyal (but quiet) followers - plus anyone else who happens to stumble upon me.
For me (and I suspect many others of my generation!) Rupert Bear sums up a magical childhood Christmas perfectly, but there again, he also sums up the perfect summer holiday too. He is a bear for all seasons and, along with all his chums, leads a charmed, cosmopolitan but reassuringly provincial life style, somewhere in the back of our adult psyches. We have a lot to thank him for.
For an early introduction to philosophy, see Winnie the Pooh. For everything else, see Rupert.
