The Queen is 80 years old today. I wonder when she is going to make Prince Charles a king. I bet he is thinking NEVER!

There is quite a lot happening this weekend. Sunday is St. Georges Day (England’s National Day). St. George is the patron saint of England. His emblem a red cross on a white background, is the flag of England, and part of the British flag. St. George’s emblem was adopted by Richard The Lion Heart and brought to England in the 12th centuary. The kings soldiers wore it on their tunics to avoid confusion in battle.

It is also the London Flora Marathon and there are going to be tens of thousands of mad nutters running for various charities. We are supporting the Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital, since they
