|My Morning Coffee|
Ok so I go and make another coffee and then settle down for an Hour on the laptop to check out Facebook and also my E-Mails before I go and get ready for when Pauline gets here. While I am on the Computer I check the Live webcam at Portsmouth Harbour to download the Photo of what the weather is like out there this morning, it looks very cloudy out of my lounge window.

True to her word, Pauline arrives with the taxi at about 11.25, so the driver gets the wheelchair into the Taxi and off we go to the city centre. It is just our luck that it is dry with bright spells until we arrive and get out of the Taxi and then it starts to rail, Lucky for us it is only a light shower and only last about 10 minutes and then stops so we go down to the Bank and get some money out of the ATM before we go shopping.

The time is now just turned 3.00 so I will check to see how the Olympic torch relay is progressing. Today is day 19 and the Torch has crossed the Border and is going from Dublin in the Republic of Ireland to Belfast. The picture below shows the Olympic torch on the Skywalk above Croke Park Stadium in Dublin.

OK so there is a couple of events we need to remember today, especially those of us who had relatives who were involved in the D Day landings in France on the 6th June 1944. for my family this is to remember " Pat Hubbard" and his brother "Smash" these were my Mothers cousins who departed from The South Coast here in Portsmouth and served with the " Canadian Black Watch" and also MY Late Father-in-law" Robert Clark who was a "Royal Marine" on one of the Landing Craft that was involved on ferrying the troops on D-Day.
