Least We Forget
Today, across England and the Commonwealth, people stood in silence for two minutes at 11am, to remember all those people lost to wars. The fallen are also remembered by people wearing poppies, with funds raised going to help the victims of war.
The Council House has worn a big one all week. The scaffolding around the dome has been up quite some time. I'm not sure what they are doing, but they have had to stop the chimes, otherwise all the workmen would be deaf by now.
Stop press on the Headbanger Challenge. Gail is voting on behalf of Imac this week, and she told me that persimmons are known as Sharon fruits in the UK. I've had Sharon fruits before, but they have been yellow, rather than red which Lanny has shown us.
