It seems to me that blogging is about as useful a way of passing the time as tossing pebbles into the sea, so for what it's worth - and that's not a lot - here are a few pebbles.
I can remember red paper poppies being worn when I was a child, but that custom is long gone in the US. Glad to see that it survives in Britain.
Meg, thanks for dropping by. Yes, we still wear poppies in remembrance and the Royal British Legion hopes to raise £40 million from the sale of them this year. The poppy petals dropped from above during the Festival of Remembrance (in the video) are supposed to be one for each British serviceman's life lost during the wars (I think).
