    Have you been to any street parties or anything? On Sunday we had a service to give thanks for our Queens reign and for her Christian witness and a reminder that she is our Queen but Christ is our King and afterwrds a celebratory lunch and an exhibition of the last 60 years of history :)

    Long my her reign continue!

    SK,
    Great pics.
    I caught the last part of the celebration covered by CNN. Queen Elizabeth is a remarkable woman.

    Peace,
    Anna

    Us Colonials down under are celebrating the Diamond Jubilee with a public holiday next Monday...

    I can still remember being taken as a child to see the young Queen, we were standing on the side of one of main roads in Brisbane waiting for her car limo to go by. We must have there for hours waiting.... that was during one of her visits to Australia in 1954. I was only 2 years old at the time.

    It was Burns who said it,
    "Our ancient Stuart Line is gone, a race outlandish fill their place,
    an idiot race, to honour lost,
    who knows them best despise them most!"
