Happy St. Georges Day

This is just to wish all my f-list a very Happy St. Georges Day ... and to hope that all of the English on my f-list have remembered their red roses ... Mine is on ... but I will admit I am not going to ask DJ to wear one ... He was born in England, but I will excuse him as his Mother (and his breeding) is Irish!

Anyway - Have a great day, today ... Whether you are English or not!

This royal throne of kings, this sceptered isle,
This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
This other Eden, demi-paradise,
This fortress built by Nature for herself
Against infection and the hand of war,
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in a silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall
Or as a moat defensive to a house,
Against the envy of less happier lands,
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England,
This nurse, this teeming womb of royal kings,
Feared by their breed and famous by their birth
...
Richard II, 2.1, 40-51
(Shakespeare on England)
