A Brit Gal’s Friday…

I’m proud to be British!!

Well we’ve survived the short week, and it was a hectic and productive one for me; I hope it was a good week for you too.  My family in England will be having their own 4 day weekend due to celebrating Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee, Monday and Tuesday. 

Queen Elizabeth has been on the throne for 60 years!!! Poor Prince Charles might not be sitting on the throne anytime soon.  Ms. Queen does not seem to be going anywhere. I remember the celebrations for the Silver Jubilee 25 years ago; I hadn’t yet moved to the U.S.  I know there’ll be lots of partying and waving the good old Union Jack.  Have a drink for me fam… Cheers!

Love & Light to you!


Let’s Get It On…

I just found out that today in Washington, DC it’s Marvin Gaye Day (you can tell I’m not from here, because I should have known this).  This day was established on May 1, 1972. Marvin was given a key to the city, a motorcade procession and to top it off, a kiss from Miss Black DC.  Apparently “Marvin Gaye Day” nearly didn’t happen because according to Marvin’s biographer, Marvin had a love hate relationship with Washington, DC plus the tumultuous and difficult relationship with his father.

This week (Thu/Fri), there’s a 2 day sold out 40th anniversary concert taking place at The Kennedy Center; so to commemorate Marvin Gaye Day here are a few of his famous tracks:
