Lulu have a promotion for a 30% discount for custom calendars, available until 7 November 2016.

Discount Code: NOVBOOKCAL

I would think that the QE2 Story Calendar is a custom calendar, so worth trying the discount code to order before Monday

I am very late in ordering my calendars, but I have just done so !  One standard size will be for my office at work, one standard size will be for my home, and one large size will be for my teaching studio. 

I am very much looking forward to their arrival, and many thanks to Alan for making these calendars of our QE2 available for us and to all of the photographers, whose superb photos appear in the calendars.

June   :)

I have just posted on our Facebook page an "advert" for the calendar, the aim being to get it in front of more people.

It would help immensely if you could all "like" this post, because this makes Facebook boost it further.

Woo!  I'm taking advantage as we speak.

Can people suggest Famous people who I can target on Twitter, and ask them to share a link to the calendar?  Especially useful would be ones who travelled on QE2!!

Our total sales have now reached 83 which is less than last year but still a reasonable number.

It would be good to reach over 100 sales again so keep promoting it where you can.

My calendar is now hung in the hallway (thanks to my efficient wife) and open at January.
I walked past it and thought "that picture looks familiar"!

Then I realised that last years photo competition had just come to life!

If that isn't an incentive to keep the contributions from the forum member going, nothing is.

Happy New year one and all!

My marvelous calendars arrived some time ago, and I apologize for not posting a photo of them until now.

Many thanks to Alan for putting these together and to all whose photographs grace the calendar. 

The large one is in my teaching studio, one regular size is in my home office, and one regular size is in my office at Connecticut College.

What a wonderful way to always have QE2 at hand !
