Wow! I can hardly believe I am saying this but today, Comms Express is 17 years old!! Yes, crazy right? It only seems like yesterday, the years have sped by, but my they have been fun.

Firstly, I would like to thank each and every one of our staff, those still with us of course but those who have chosen others paths; each have added something to our story and I am forever indebted.

It’s always nice to think we are sharing our big day with others just a quick search shows we are celebrating with a wide variety of people including politicians, sports people, musicians, actors, comedians, writers and even a Roman Emperor!

Happy birthday to John Belushi, Sharon Tate, Neil Diamond, Roman Emperor Hadrian, Ernest Borgnine, Moon Jae-in, Aaron Neville, Edith Wharton, Luis Suarez, Jools Holland, Vic Reeves, Gustav III of Sweden, Desmond Morris, Ade Edmondson, Nastassja Kinski.
