chuckufarlie: leevis: Does anybody know why they're celebrating the jubilee now? Her coronation was in June '53, not '52.

yes, but she assumed the throne upon her father's death in 1952. The big question is why are they celebrating 60 years on the throne as a golden jubilee?


Diamond. Please try to keep up.

Of course, if Jeremy Clarkson was involved, the buns would end up on fire, or possibly explode.

macadamnut: I hate top gear, and I hate anyone who likes it.


I love Richard Hammond, and I don't care who knows it. He's so adorable. The moment I decided I wanted to marry him was when he named his Opal Kadett "Oliver" on the Botswana special.

wildcardjack:
POSSIBLY? You haven't been paying attention.

No.

Clarkson: Catch on fire.
May: Show up late, or not at all
Hammond: Explode. Or crash. Or both.

If all three are involved, explosions are almost a certainty.

Pert: topcon: And, as I live in Florida, I would have KILLED to be in chilly weather and rain right now.

It's over-rated.... It's June and it's been cold and raining its arse off all day.


It's been hot and mostly dry here for years on end, aside from some mild to cold winters. So, a kind of pick-your-poison thing, I guess. I see a lot of British people on vacation in Florida, and they always talk about how much they love the weather here and wish they could live here. I always tell them I wish I was somewhere where it's cold.

I spent a couple of hours watching the boat procession down the Thames on TV earlier. Looked like everyone was having a great time. And, as I live in Florida, I would have KILLED to be in chilly weather and rain right now.
