I have made fun of the way QEII used to dressed years ago on many occasions but I think she looks lovely in this photo.  Ball gounds tend to look wonderful on QEII which is strange because she is so short!

I’m not a Brit, but I wish I was :)

I wish you would appreciate more what you have

What I like most about Trooping the Colour is that the troops are “real”; they all have seen “action”;

I hope your presentation will come out well "Earl of Leicester"

Ah, may I, too, join in the morning c&c gathering?

Perhaps there are others!  TB & I can easily get  flight!  Or, if others dwell in chilly climes, you might like to visit the Sunshine State!  I have my own coffee blend and the very best coffee maker in the world.  That's not bragging...it's enticing!
