Thanks lads.
Thanks for playing our bawdy tavern song today at the changing of the guards.
I was moved.
Regards, A Rebel Boy (Twice over I rekon ...)

Yesterday I think the whole thing finally hit me .... when I watched the Cermeony outside Buckingham palace after on the news after I got home from work, for the first time I cried. I've hardly' stopped since. I expect the three minutes silence we'll be holding in 90 minutes will be emotional for everyone.

i am glad to see how much support we are getting from everyone else. but, when you think about it, the attack was on everyone... it just happened to be in New York.

It was the Queen who suggested the change in tradition ... it was the first time any other national anthem was played during the Changing of the Guard!
I'm not a huge fan of the Royal Family ... but good on her!

The Queen of course was around back in the 40's when some Americans gave their lives to help her country and save the world. Thank you your majesty for remembering us and thank you to all the British for being such great allies!

"It was the Queen who suggested the change in tradition ... "
I wonder how many of you have really read the most significant meaning of those words.
The (TRADITIONAL) Queen is willing to break with Tradition.
Nostradamus would have put it better:
"And it came the time that the most unyielding of rulers yielded, when the Twins were separated from their Father by the Might that the Wicked had acquired during the time of Complacence of the Righteous Empire."
"Then the decline of the wicked one was to be forever and ever, by the cause of fire from the sky as the Prophet had foretold.
"Then came the Fire From The Sky and all ended."
Tony "Nostradamus" Alicea
