Back from London, but terribly busy here. Had a good weekend: a reminder of why London is such a marvellous, diverse, exciting city to be in (until you run out of steam!).

Anyway, given the day that's in it, I might recall an American friend's tour of the Tower of London some years ago. He and the other Yanks were asked by the beefeater what they called the 4th of July. When they replied that it's Independence Day, the beefeater quipped that "that's strange: we call it Thanksgiving..." American friend not amused...
