So we wake today to the start of the Queens Diamond Jubilee Celebrations across the United Kingdom. It is 60 years ago today that that Princess Elizabeth Came to the Throne and became Queen Elizabeth The II. at least although the weather started off dull at least the sun has made brief appearances throughout the morning before the rain that is coming in from the West reaches us about 7.00 pm this evening.
Jo soon had me Washed and Groomed and then she was on her way, I got some wheatabix for breakfast and then sent the morning text to Pauline, Thank goodness for Mobile phones. Pauline phones me back on her mobile as she has trouble with her phone too and she is with BT. anyway I check the live webcam at the harbour and this is how the weather looks at 8.00 this morning.

The Residents have been out putting up the flags and decorating the road ready the Street Party. it is hard to see but the bunting is across the road all the way down and many people have decorated the house fronts as well.

I am now going to check on the progress of the Olympic Torch Relay. It is day 15 today and is going from Liverpool to Castletown on the Isle of Man. The flame was flown over this morning from Liverpool by British airways on the Plane "Firefly" painted in the special colours for the Olympic Torch.

Well that is it for today so i will just put up the "Day in History" for today, now the most obvious was the Coronation on 2nd of June 1953, but I have decided to go for the 172nd anniversary of the birth of Thomas Hardy on the 2nd June 1840 and so until tomorrow I will say Tatty Bye.
