Oh boy, do we love medieval villages which look like they’ve been taken out of a fairy tale! … Castle Combe, a civil parish [in the Cotswolds], and a tiny village with a population of about 350, is considered as one the most photographed places in England, and we totally understand why.
Sad but brilliant post by a Brit, who sees the way things in the UK are going, all too clearly…
Governments which no longer guarantee the security of their citizens are worthless, and those that disallow the right to defend oneself are worse than negligent, they are clearly dangerous to support in any way. People here are beginning to get this, but I still feel it’s too late to prevent the rivers of blood alluded to by the brilliant Enoch Powell, king of ‘racialists,’ true patriot and martyr…
Such are the times we live in. My American friends, you are surely aware that you don’t have to own a gun to fight like hell to retain your right to bear arms, as well as the freedom to play anything you damn well please on your karaoke machines. Preserve those rights, defend them, they are more precious than you know. Never sell them. Never soften.
Armed Forces Day is a chance to show your support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets.
Respectful salute to the men and women of all the Armed Forces of the United Kingdom! May God continue to bless and protect them, and the people they serve. And God save The Queen!
Her Majesty has always been extremely attentive, sensitive, and responsive to the needs and moods of her nation. This year she writes,
Today is traditionally a day of celebration. This year, however, it is difficult to escape a very sombre national mood. In recent months, the country has witnessed a succession of terrible tragedies.
As a nation, we continue to reflect and pray for all those who have been directly affected by these events. During recent visits in Manchester and London, I have been profoundly struck by the immediate inclination of people throughout the country to offer comfort and support to those in desperate need.
Put to the test, the United Kingdom has been resolute in the face of adversity. United in our sadness, we are equally determined, without fear or favour, to support all those rebuilding lives so horribly affected by injury and loss.

God save The Queen! Long live The Queen! Long may she reign, in peace and prosperity, to lead and guard her people.
The Trooping of the Colour has marked the official birthday of the British Sovereign for over 260 years.
An “official” Happy Birthday to Her Majesty, The Queen!
Today The Queen and other members of The Royal Family attended Trooping the Colour – The Queen’s birthday parade.
Before The Trooping took place, The Queen led a minute’s silence for victims of the Grenfell Tower fire.
God save The Queen! Long live The Queen! May she enjoy health and long life, to reign in peace and guard her people.
The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall have visited those injured in the London Bridge terrorists incident, and met the medical staff and emergency services who responded during the attack.
Her Majesty The Queen visits with one of the young victims of the Manchester suicide bombing at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, and commends the Hospital staff.
The whole nation has been shocked by the death and injury in Manchester last night of so many people, adults and children, who had just been enjoying a concert. I know I speak for everyone in expressing my deepest sympathy to all who have been affected by this dreadful event and especially to the families and friends of those who have died or were injured. I want to thank all the members of the emergency services, who have responded with such professionalism and care.
— Her Majesty The Queen
