This is a worthwhile, fun & rewarding experience. We took part in the May 2018 ‘Spring Clean Up Day‘ and it was a blast. Since all three of us did the full 4-hour shift we got six free tickets which we have yet to use.

Being around the spectacular Castle is always fun and the staff is ultra nice. In May we also got a very nice, free lunch. Hope the weather is good in November.

You should sign up. You will enjoy it. It is good to support the Castle.

Given my British upbringing, I am, of course, familiar with William Hogarth and his work.

I do not consider him one of my iconic artists, but I do enjoy and appreciate his work — in all of its facets.

If, however, the truth be told, I know him MOST, and think of him, in terms of THE London roundabout. Over the years I have spent many lifetimes in and around that roundabout — stuck in London traffic. Aaahhh, the Hogarth Roundabout. What a landmark.

The stuff of legends IF you were lucky enough to have had a British upbringing (though Henry Morton Stanley was an American). {Smile}

The phrase itself is now fairly famous, probably from all the movies and TV shows.

So, 148-years ago. Pretty neat stuff.

The cerebral U.K. ‘The Guardian’, as ever, makes a good point. Got me thinking. Do Catholics do anything about Remembrance Day?

Now please, stand up, erect, and join me in a rousing rendition of ‘Rule Britannia’.

Trust me you will feel rejuvenated and righteous after that.
