I always try to make a point of watching the video of the “Remembrance Sunday” Cenotaph ceremony. It is always so beautifully choreographed. Regal pomp and ceremony with respect and dignity as only us, the British, can pull off. I am thankful and proud everyday that I was fortunate enough to be a British citizen, on days like this it gives me goose bumps. This is Tradition with a capital ‘T‘. Just wonderful to see all the folks wearing their red poppy, or poppies, with pride. I wore my Canadian Red Poppy today, with pride, with a backing. (The backing worked. It stayed in place).

I hope you were available to identify all the royals bar the last. The last, the elderly gentleman, was the Duke of Kent. The others were the male members of the Royal family: husband, eldest son, Charles, his two sons William & Harry, BUT we also see the Queen’s 2nd son, Andrew.

Wonderful. Wonderful. Wonderful.

We did them proud. Remembered and honored them as they deserved.

A Great Day, yet again, to be British.

I refused to talk about the events leading up to Sunday though I followed them closely. Idiots, all of them.

Here is a tutorial on the really nifty web browser-based
Kindle Cloud Reader.


Yet again yesterday I had somebody tell me that they couldn’t read Kindle eBooks because they didn’t own a Kindle reader — just an Apple iPad.

Drives me nuts.

Amazon has done such a piss poor job educating the world on Kindle.

These days I am both an Apple and Amazon shareholder — in that I own 2 shares of each. But that still gives me the right to bitch and moan about them. Amazon is losing so much business and hurting us authors so much.

This is so stupid.

As I have repeatedly written, you can read Kindle eBooks on a PC or Mac using a standard Web browser. Doesn’t get easier than that.


Sunday November 9, 2014 Is “Remembrance Sunday” In The U.K.

They have NOT done one since 2009. That is 5 years ago.

A bit like how they have stopped doing Google Doodles for Canada’s “Thanksgiving” as of 2010.

Also the ones they did were not that inspired!
So much they could have done.

Never done one for British “Poppy Day“!
That is bad.

They did do, however, do a Guy Fawkes Day one in 2002.

They also did Poppy themed Doodles for Australia and New Zealand for
ANZAC Day =  Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.

They always do a Doodle for U.S. Veterans Day — as they should.
