I came home from work and found that our local post box has been painted gold in honour of Danielle Brown, local British paralympian archeress who comes from Lothersdale (Pres no letter box in Lothersdale??)! I'm really thrilled by this and flattered that she has honoured me by getting a medal so that the nearest post box to Rich- Aitch Castle can be painted gold. This is quite exciting, do other people have gold letter boxes near them? There's one (Three actually) for Nicola Adams near my office, one in Bramhope for one of the Brownlee's and one in Hebden for Andy Hodge. It feels like they are popping up all over.

So in theory, by people in the world, our paralympians are better than our abled body athletes. Superb! Really doing well for UK.

What a brilliant and simple idea from the Royal Mail. I didn't think they were capable of it. This link is useful:
