Crowns are a big deal in Britain. England and Scotland have fought wars over who should wear them and there are some pretty amazing collections of crowns and the associated jewels in the Tower of London
and here in Edinburgh at Holyroodhouse Palace.
Why belly-ache about being excluded from this year's honors list , as my co-nate Doug and Dr.Dave are wont to do each year, when I am entitled to wear my own personal crown. OK OK, I have to admit it, attempts to borrow one from the Palace have been unsuccessful so buying one may be required. My head has grown a bit, along with the rest of me, in the past 52 years.
Did you know that the monarchy has its own website? They must be getting a handle on that whole PR thing.www.royal.gov.uk . I highly recommend a visit. They actually answer e-mails!
