Long Live The Queen
The Diamond Jubilee Celebrations have begun!
Throughout Great Britain and many other countries, there are thousands of street parties, parades, and much merriment afoot, in the celebrating of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's sixtieth year on the throne.
Today a thousand boats set sail In Honour of Her Majesty... sailing down the River Thames as part of the Diamond Jubilee river pageant, with an estimated one million onlookers standing on it's banks, sharing in the well-wishes.
I will be joining in the celebrations albeit from afar, my Union Jack flying , my glass of Harveys Bristol Cream Sherry raised high.
Sixty years on the throne, and a lifetime of genteelness, grace and dedication. Long may she reign.
Three cheers: Hip,Hip, Hooray, Hip, Hip, Hooray, Hip Hip Hooray !
