Catchy tune Mr. Clark, kids on the Bandstand give it a 92 out of 98, easy to dance to.

It made me laugh when I read what you wrote.. and I just couldn't help myself...
No disrespect meant to King Richard III... or his Royal Family...
I still have to wonder though how the heck do you lose a Kings Remains???

On a serious note..
I have watched serveral PBS shows about England Finding all kinds of structures by using images taken from an aircraft...
They are, to the best of my knowledge still conducting an archaeological survey and dig at Windsor Castle...

I love this sort of thing.. and sometimes I am simply shocked by the remains of history they find and where they find them...
Glad You Like the Tune...

"..........and next year Richard will, at last, get a king's burial, interred with pomp and ceremony in Leicester Cathedral."

Can't even let the poor-bastard rest in peace; maybe he doesn't WANT to be hauled around and shown-off. Maybe Egyptian mummy tombs aren't the ONLY ones with curses. We shall see.

I prefer Paris, the Tour and the South of France, but England is nice. I like the area around Canterbury and Dover as well. Where do you go in England?
