The British are not flag wavers, but get a load of this !
As many of you may be aware we don't "do flag waving" in Britain, that is until now, and everybody has gone flag crazy ! The festivities have begun and as usual the sun has vanished. There is going to be great merriment, singing, dancing and carousing wearing plastic macs and hats with the kids wearing union jack wellies because it will probably rain.
So just to get you into the spirit here are some photo's. One thing you may notice is not only do we laugh and take the mickey out of the French and Germans, in fact any foreigners, we also do it on our royal family. We are an incorrigable, irreverant lot, a right pain in the ass, but we know our cousins in the US of A love every one of us !
Special good wishes to our kith and kin in Canada, Australia and New Zealand in this Jubilee season to commemorate 60 years as Queen Elizabeth II
