COOL BRITANNIA !!!! Yay. I'm a New Zealander and was in the UK for a couple of months last year and throughly enjoyed myself. We travelled from Edinbrough to York to Wales to Landsend and onto London with alot of points in between. Cor, talk about UK countryside. Gee-orgeous !!
Yep, we watched a lot of the Jubilee on tv here and more than once I wished I could be back in the UK. My wife is a Brit. and she got quite nostagic about it all. Although I am on the fence as to the royalty HRH Queen Elizabeth is held in the highest esteme here in NZ and I must say being part of the greatest empire the world has ever known does give one warm fuzzies when I think about it. Especially when one stands in the centre of the empire ( London) and thinks of the reach/size ( NZ ) one realises the vastness of it.
Good on you UK and really hope the Olympics go well for you.

As too Anne, Chuck and Phil, well, they are Colnels in Chief of various Regiments and have served ( I think ) in the military so are entitled to wear all those medals. Andrew is a combat veteran, as is Harry, and William is a Search and Rescue Pilot ( a real hero in my eyes).
