Happy Saint George’s day everyone!

Today is England's national day, a day in which we celebrate St. George (our countries patron saint) by wearing red roses in our lapels and fly the Cross of St. George.

Alas, this is a sad fact to mention, but if truth be told, not all Brits celebrate today. I can't quiet put my finger on the main reason for this (I do have some theories, but that's another conversation entirely) .. however, I can say, by enlarge, most of us are terribly patriotic (including myself) and do celebrate today.

So for those of you out there who are likeminded .. "Happy St. Georges Day!"

PS: Incidentally, today's date is also reputed to be the day on which Shakespeare was born, and also sadly died.

Oh Justine....I had no idea this move was happening. Of course I have been caught up in my own dramas the past few months. Now I am having to deal with my son being in Chengdu, China.

Anyway, I went to your blog to see how you are and there it was! Your packing and moving! I think of you often and now I will keep you in those thoughts and send you all the positive energy I can. I LOVE this new place for you to hang your thoughts and traditions. It's a wee bit of home for you to keep with you. Hang in there my friend and keep me aware of your travels. Pam
