A Quick Easter Competetion - Closed see note

So many people have voted on the poll, thanks for that.

Harry is giving away a couple of eggs he has decorated ready for Easter. Whilst these may not be the best prize you may ever win, hopefully they are pretty good for a Harry fan. If you don't celebrate Easter then they are simply decorated shiny eggs.

Please add a comment to this post with a short description of the place that you live any why Harry should visit it (town or country it does not matter) and Harry will select the two winners.

Please do not leave any personal details. I will contact the winner and ask for a postal address. So please make sure that if you are under 18 you tell your parents that you have left a comment and that if you win you need to give out your address

A frequent question. Do we get recognised much?

Here was something funny which happened at the weekend. We arrived early for Charlie's football practice. Harry comes along to help Charlie.
Coach Rich is teaching the boys. We arrived a little early and I had a quick chat with Coach Rich before the others arrived. Coach Rich taught Harry a couple of years ago, is now teaching Charlie, has seen the clip on YouTube, the interview of Richard and Judy and yet he did not see Harry and Charlie as "Harry and Charlie".

As he said when you know people you are less likely to see them as 'famous'. However I must stress we do not see ourselves as famous. Perhaps this is also more of a British thing anyway.

Anyway, thanks to coach Rich for teaching the boys. Especially thanks as he has his own Charlie.

I don't think either boy will be playing for their country, however they do enjoy a good run around.

The goodies wear white and the badies wield red lightsabers

There are hundreds of ways a 5 year old can make you proud, for that matter your child at any age. However yesterday while trying to explain why the goodies do not always win, not to trust people simply because they want you to like them, and sometimes right and wrong can be only the difference of opinion I discovered that Harry's first few words he can spell are 'Harry', 'Charlie' and

Charlie Bit Me enjoyed in Burma

What makes the effort put into 'Web 2.0 Harry and Charlie' worthwhile?
Your letters

This is another of the reasons I started a blog, so I could share the thoughts and comments from people who have take the time to share with me their experiences of 'Charlie Bit Me'. It is not my intention to build what we have into something it is not, simply to pass on other peoples feelings from around the world.

I do not think the clip will bring down military juntas, get warring neighbours talking to each other or bring peace and harmony to the world, but if it only goes a small way in showing people in different countries we can all share the same enjoyment and are basically the same then I will be very happy.

Dear Harry and Charlie,

I am from Burma but now studying in another country Since Youtube is banned in Burma, I had to save "Charlie bit me" in my P.C to share with my family and friends. When I went home last time, I showed them your gorgeous Vid and they enjoyed it alot and they totally in love with you guys. And my family never stop laughing. My parents always asked me to show it to everyone who visited our house. And I was really happy to see they were happy. Thank you very much for bringing joy to everyone. Last but not least, I pray that the Lord will bless you and your family abundantly.
Llove you and your family.

I have edited the content slightly to remove any personal information only

For more information on Burma go to;

I should also explain the title a little bit. Obviously spending time with my family is the most important thing that I could wish to do. However we do put a lot of time into the social networking face of the internet, i.e. YouTube, Facebook, now blogging etc. Time is mainly spent replying to people, keeping the sites child friendly etc.

Rude Tube - Series 1 Episode 5 - Children and Kids

I (Howard) finally got round to editing the video for our first appearance on Rude Tube. I hope you all like it. I have cut out my interview section in favour of collecting all the shots of the boys. It was a funny day, the boys would not sit still at the same time or answer questions, but the video used is classic Harry and Charlie. We came second to a comedy sketch with Will Farrell in this show. I will post the Rude Tube 2009 roundup show when I can.


Blogging and Playing

Welcome to Harry and Charlie's blog.

We have been thinking of doing something like this for a while, but I have always turned away from the idea as there was something missing, or at least there was not enough to included. The other day a very nice person from Olympus gave us a Olympus Mju 1050. It is designed for a tough life and putting it in the hands of Harry and Charlie is exactly what it will get. So content may not be written by the boys but the photos taken will be (as much as possible). We shall try and keep the Blog to views and interests of Harry and Charlie.

So what does a 5 and 3 year old get when they start taking their own photos;

Obviously Charlie started of with a photo of himself,
