Sic transit gloria

Emily, my 6 year old granddaughter, asked me this week why I have hairy nostrils.  She went on to inform me she could see my head through my hair.

The Old Bat laughed uproariously.

Today is the official birthday of Her Majesty the Queen.  This will be marked by the ceremony of Trooping the Colour which will take place on Horse Guards Parade, London.  In honour of the occasion, here is a clip of last year's ceremony.
