Fit For a Queen
I have been following the Queen's state visit to Ireland with interest. It is a historic occasion and HTLT has a keen sense of history. Also a keen sense of the ridiculous. I found it amusing to note that the pool in the Garden of Remembrance (the pool of remembrance?) has been cleaned to within an inch of its life. I don't like to suggest that this is the first time it's been cleaned, but it certainly wasn't this pristine when I last visited, just over a year ago.
