One of my Parts of the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremonies…
The Role the Queen played, as a Cameo in a video!
Never before has the queen herself appeared in non-documentary or non-journalistic movie/video.
All the credit to Danny Boyle, and of course to Her Royal Highness, who pushes the boundaries in her Diamond Jubilee year.
The following is something I found just browisng around on the net.
Its from a vintage readers digest, and I’ve seen it all over the place the last few weeks, and the photo is by Ernest Reshovsky.
The Lioness is named Little Tyke and was born in the zoo at Tacoma, Washington. She became a rancher’s house pet, while nursing a broken leg. She was used to enjoying perfume, flowers, her own bed, a diet of milk and cereal. And most interesting of all, she never touched meat. This definitely accounts for the complacency of her kitten friend.
As many have noted, This blog has not been updated in a while.
The reasons are that My Neighbour, Known as Astatine, has been overseas at a location where he has no access. he has asked me to take over the blog until his return in a few months. — I will be posting under the name Quirky during his absense.
