Oh, Nancy, come join me at 4 am for crumpets and tea! I listened to my first
royal wedding -- Elizabeth and Phillip -- in 1948 on the radio in my dorm
room. Bless 'em all (some more than others, of course)!

I think it will be fun too. Crumpets and tea is a good idea! Not
sure I want to sit through that entire wedding though. I get bored
enough when I have to attend a wedding mass. Maybe I'll wait for the
shortened version later in the day. I can hardly wait to see her
dress. I expect she'll be sophisticated and lovely. Hopefully they
don't dress her in a hideous "Diana dress", I couldn't believe how
ugly that thing was when she appeared.

I love cooking with wine.
Sometimes I even put it in the food.
