A Most Fantabulous Combi-Tool

My beloved crew, have I a most remarkable new tool to show you!  From the ingenious mind at Mental Design comes an all-in-wonder tool to make the good Captain's life of leisure that much more leisurely.  In truth it was designed and presented to Queen Victoria, whom I was having a spot of tea with at the time, but so amazed were my eyes that I preceded to make an offer to the inventor which he could not refuse.  Her Royal Majesty, not to be outdone, upped my offer and instantly a bidding war broke out.  Of course the good Captain prevailed much to the Queen's dismay, but rest assured by the time I departed the palace the following morning I was extended an open invitation to return whenever I should choose to. What's that?  Oh, back to the point you say.  Most appropriate actually.

Belated Holidays Wishes

Merry Christmas and a most Wonderful New Year to all family, friends, and yes even you my little cogheads.  You'll have to forgive the tardiness of my holiday cheers, but I'm sure you understand the unexpected craziness that can occur this time of year.  Especially when entertaining as many guests as the good captain did, including a most pleasant gentleman (captured in quite the stoic looking pose to the left) whose steam powered reindeer sleigh experienced unexpected troubles leading to a midnight mayday and heroic mid-air rescue in quite the powerful North Atlantic snow storm over Greenland by yours truly.  Fear not, the steam powered reindeer and sleigh, including he told me roughly one year's worth of marvelous steam powered toys he was delivering to all his nieces and nephews - and he must have some family judging by the amount of gifts in his sack - were all safely accounted for and easily repaired by the stalwart crew of the Anomaly Obscura Engine.  Oh, before I forget Captain Claus asked that I extend his wishes of a Merry Christmas to all, and to all a goodnight as well.
