Blimey!............'Shampoo' eh, where I mentioned on another thread recently that I used to go into Cinemas under-age to see 'naughty' films, Shampoo was one of them, it certainly enlightened an innocent 15 year old at the time lol.
Anyhow I'm glad to read that those in Australia who wish to see the Flotilla now have a chance to see it, I'll be glued (naturally) to the spectacle, I really can't get enough of the Jubilee spirit and goodwill that's buzzing around.
Could Mark O and Steve be sharing a tent of loyalty and devotion to Her Maj awaiting the boat-thingy?

Lol Captain, maybe if we were both twenty years younger., I like my home comforts too much these days to go camping, not that I ever did, glad to see the Red Dragon flying alongside the Union flags, Great Britain truly is a Union, I hope it stays that way..
Bloomin' weather, still, what can one do, just grin and bare it, I do feel for the people standing for hours and the many open air events planned, it's a shame, though there may be some glimpses of the Sun this afternoon.
Meant to post this ages ago. We had a fete at the lido a couple of months back - one of the major attractions was Pin the goggles on Her Maj
The winner with his prize
People who choose to climb Mount Everest and subsequently freeze to death on their ascent could be regarded as deranged but I wouldn't mock anyone for wanting to do so.
It most certainly would Ray, variety is the spice of life as they say, hope you're having a pleasant Jubilee over in Kent, I'll be watching the wonderful Flotilla shortly, I've a Coronation chicken sandwich and some Mr Kipling Jubilee French fancies all ready for me to join in the spirit of things in my own little way lol, I love Canaletto's painting of the previous Royal Barges and Flotilla, I just hope no one gets too wet!
Mark, I am watching the BBC Broadcast of the Thames Pageant now. I could not believe my ears when I heard one of the announcers refer to Her Majesty as Her Royal Highness. I have heard those idiots on Loose Women make the same mistake, but I expected better from a programme like this.
Believe it or not Ray, the Sky coverage of the Thames Pagent could be better than the BBC. I was hopping between the two and just as in last years Roal Wedding coverage, the BBC have the unfortunate habit of breaking away to the talking heads in the studio, whereas Sky mix it up with people spots and more varied and creative coverage of the event itself.
