They were biodegradable — an paper poppies usually are. {Smile}.

Another outstanding tribute. I am so PROUD and happy. We do this with so much panache.

Wanted to share with YOU in case you hadn’t seen this. I saw this first thing this morning in the ‘Daily Mail‘.

Seeing This Burnt Jaguar In The Australian Bushfires Was Upsetting.

Saw it on Facebook.


Yes. Yes. Yes. I know. I don’t need to be told. I am only semi-stupid, not totally. I understand and appreciate that in the scheme of things a burnt up Jag is the least of the problems facing the Australians with these raging bushfires.

That said and noted, it is still distressing to see, what must have been a rather nice Jag, XJ8 or XJ12, destroyed. Another one, alas, bites the dust.

The reason I have two is that I am trying to preserve them for posterity. Enough said.

The Avid Sun Worshipper I Am, I Am Waging My Own Personal War Against The Dark.

My new THING for this winter. SCREW the darkness (though the truth be known darkness does not scare me).

It started with the Halloween lights and the flickering solar-powered flame lights we saw in Rockland, Maine in September. I immediately got some and augmented them with an assortment of candles.

Once we get a base of SNOW I will progress to open flame, REAL tiki torches.

But, I am going to fight the darkness.

Let there be LIGHT.

Remembrance Sunday 2019, London Cenotaph Ceremony Videos, With My Queen Resplendent With 5 Poppies — Brushing Away A Tear.

For the 3rd time, The Queen, now 93, watched from a balcony and let two generations of her male progeny lay the wreaths. This year, with time, alas, ticking away, she was more emotional than her usual calm, composed, regal self. She brushed away some tears. That was poignant. That she no longer lays the wreath herself is perfectly fine. We all understand and appreciate. She has done her duty — plenty.

This was her 68th Remembrance Sunday. Wow. See b&w image below when she attended with her dad, before she was queen.





For those unfamiliar with this holiday & tradition
please refer to my EARLIER post.
Thank YOU.
