Today a special guest post by Nick...
1. My wife's courage and stamina as she painfully brings our baby into this world. I'm so proud of her.
2. Our new little boy, Alexander, perfect in every detail, with ten tiny fingers and ten tiny toes. Like his dad, the young chap soon shows a talent for eating and sleeping.
3. Just before going to bed, I see England need only three wickets to retain the Ashes -- could this day have been any better?
