That's pretty cool, Bob! My wife is a Victorian freak! Her little side business is called Victorian Valhalla and she buys, sells, and collects Victorian items, mostly mourning jewelry. She'll get a kick out of seeing this.


So does she read the comic strip?

I had to look up the year but every kid raised in the Commonwealth should know the rhyme:

The 24th of May is the Queen's birthday
If you don't give us a holiday
We'll all run away.

Geez, Bob,

You expect us Colonials to know stuff like that when the majority of us can't count to eleven reliably without taking off at least one shoe!

I have to admit, even though I like my trivia, and Royal trivia at that, I had forgotten the date. My Grandmother would be appalled.

All I could think of was another song:

In 1814 we took a little trip,
Along with Andy Jackson down the mighty mississipp
We took a little bacon and we took a little beans
And fought the bloody British in the town of New Orleans.

Cho.
Well, they ran through the briars and they ran through the brambles,
And they ran through the bushes where a rabbit wouldn't go!
They ran so fast even hounds couldn't catch 'em,
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico


Queen Victoria would never have let that debacle occur!

I'll have to go to wally world and see if Hallmark has a card for the 189th birthday.  Unfortunately now that I know the date we're booked for a gig that weekend, so we can't make it but we will observe a moment of silence during the night, (I'll hit the mute button on my wifes mic) lol.  Secretly I think Dallas is just trying to sneak up on the 2000 post mark lol.

No smart remarks! haha I know most of them probably fit that description!

Nah, After the 500th post it's all downhill.

Besides, Nick has me beaten by almost 300.

Will Queen Vickie be there, I'd like to meet her.

May 24th will be too early, there will still be snow on the ground there.

Hey I did pass Queen Elizabeth on the road one day, I didn't know which car she was in so I waved at all of them.  Fall of '84 I believe, SR 68 on the north side of Lexington KY.

Bob,
Quick question: for those of us in Minnesota; how far are you from Grand Forks?
