We still have huge piles of snow in our yard, though they are melting quickly, so no yard work here for another few weeks. I to am working, both in the office and on site for a while today. I do hope to work some more on my canoe, I was too bushed yesterday after working on site for most of it. A walk with the pooch sounds like a good idea too.

Passed my drug/alcohol test this morning. Took myself out for lunch at the Olive Garden. Now I have a headache (from all the stress of moving etc...). I'm having a glass of wine and then a nap. Hope the darn headache is gone then as I have tons to do!!!:confused:

ooh... What kind of drugs and alcohol were they testing you on. I'm guessing you aced the boxed wine section with flying colors. And I see you studied up on your opiates, amphetamines and barbiturates. Good for you. And lets us not forget your fine wines and spirits as well.

I'm proud of you.

Oh... did you mean drug screening? I'm glad you weren't on any substances! WTG! :D

I do like this too, looks very much like a painting. Nice mood to it.

Now lets talk about the ME

.... Lots of photos to proc... Waaaay behind... and LOVING the new lens. Though its missing the collar.

I need to get away from this computer and get out with the camera. If I get done early enough, I'm going to head over the ridge to a nearby park for a couple of hours later today.

Trivia information for anyone visiting London. If you visit Buckingham Palace, The Tower of London, St James's Palace or Windsor Castle the chances are that you will not see the Scarlet coated bearskin wearing guards that you expect to see. The 7 regiments that make up the Household (or Guards) Division are spending more and more time deployed on operations in Afghanistan and various other hot spots. However there will be loads of them around for the up and coming "Royal Wedding" (Have you had your invite yet Tom, I put in a good word for you :-) )

There are four ways to distinguish which of the 7 regiments each guardsman belongs to. The first and most obvious is the regimental badge, when in their home service clothing this is only shown on their collars so is not easy to see, the other ways are The colour of the plume in their bearskin, the side of the bearskin that the plume is in and the number and arrangement of the buttons on their tunic. The two cavalry regiments can be distinguished by the colour of the plumes from their helmets and the colour of their tunics (the farriers screw this up as they have black plumes)

Anyway this is the new graphic from the top of the Household Devision newsletter and it is a great crib sheet to help you spot who is who.

It was great racing weather, terrible sundress weather. I wore jeans. Cloudy but bright near 60 degrees. The light made for great pictures, TERRIBLE white skies though. I am afraid I blew a few bad.

Good thing you wore jeans....I don't think you would look good in a sundress. :lol:

These were staged and purpose lit for this event. I was a little disappointed with the people that put it on....they spent more time getting shots for themselves than they did taking care of the paying customers.

Ah okay. Bummer about the coordinators putting in more time to get the shots they wanted.

Interesting video you linked Neil. I didn't see the emblem on the bearskin in the video when the regiment was on parade in front of the queen. Is it not worn at all times when with the bearskin?

There is always a plume worn on the left hand side of the bearskin, but the boys try and burry it into the fur.

There are some differences in the officers uniform depending on weather the monarch is present.

When the Queen is not there Officers wear a plain scarlet silk belt but when she is they wear a scarlet and gold one. Like THIS (external link) one that the Colonel of the regiment is wearing.

PETA are trying to get the Household Division to stop wearing Bearskin Caps. This is strange as mine was over 50 years old. Given that the size of the regiments is less than a quarter of what it used to be it is unlikely that they will ever need to make any more caps.

HERE (external link) are some links to the protest. very mildly NSFW

Hey Riley! How are you doing?

It is going well. Lots of changes in a really short period of time but I am learning a lot that will be useful in my future plans.

they can import them from NJ Neil, it is legal to hunt bears here as they are all too common in backyards and trashcans.

Oh okay. The plume must have been buried in there during that parade.

Always like to read about and see photos of differing uniforms from militaries from around the world....intresting.

:rolleyes: Maybe someone should have told them that most of the caps are that old. :lol:
