The Glorious British peerless pageantry at its very best. Makes me so proud to be British.

The Queen’s actual birthday was on April 21. She turned 89!

Trooping the Color is to mark her official, public Birthday. A Royal thing.

Trooping the Colour is a ceremony performed by regiments of the British and Commonwealth armies. It is a Battlefield tradition having to do with displaying once FLAGS that goes back to the 17 century.

The issue closest and most dear to my heart is that of the
EU Referendum. 

As I have mentioned, more than once, I voted AGAINST EU membership
in the FIRST referendum on this matter in 1975.

I have NEVER been a believer of EU membership.

We, THE BRITISH, don’t need the Europeans —
as much as they need us …

PLUS, and this is VERY important …

We, THE BRITISH, have
Glorious British Commonwealth

MY Glorious Commonwealth.

Talk about ironies or irony.

Yosemite, like all the other National Parks, are CLOSED TODAY because of the Government Shutdown!

Today also happens to be NASA’s anniversary, the 55th. Much of NASA is closed too.

It is a beautiful park. I have only been once and that was in 1992. Would go there again in a heartbeat.
