age seems to have been good to Charles...he's almost grown into his ears

as has Gordon

well, "hip hip hooray" (x3) for Charles's mummy

thx char...i'd like to see a close up of that image

i wonder if that's Queen Vic or an earlier portrait of QEII on the wall behind the Queen's head in this portrait?


i taped the American network's coverage (maybe it was a BBC feed) and FF'ed straight to the music bits so I missed all the stuff they are talking about here:

i guess the Queen is like the Leafs ... lots of love or hate out there, and lotsa $$$

quite the stats http://news.nationalpost.com/2012/06...y-the-numbers/

would have been nice to have a Canadian performer too (Stevie is USA and Kylie is Aussie, no?)...wow, old Tom Jones has maintained his voice (and tan, lol)

I saw the fireworks display that was done over Buckingham Palace & thought it was magnificent to see. And the music that was played along with it was equally marvelous to hear. One couldn't help but feel a part of the whole thing.
