If you want the opportunity to catch a glimpse or even meet some of the world's most famous celebrities, spend some time in the beautiful city of Paris. You never know who you might see when walking around the French capital's stunning boulevards and cobbled stone streets.

Meanwhile as Remembrance day is fast approaching I would like to remember the Navy with 2 links from a fellow Veteran’s Blog. Thanks Ben. First the STORY of the TOT>>>>> Second a Poem written by a sailor in WW2 >>>>> Military is certainly not for everyone. But it is a marvellous life for a young person, whether  he/she  chooses Land, Sea or Air trades. Doing a much needed Job in defence of one’s country. Not everyone can do that. I end today on a humorous letter to the Citizens of the USA on the upcoming Election. To the citizens of the United States of America from Her Sovereign Majesty…
