London Town

Today was a busy day - a trip to London, always special!

I think Pepys, or somebody, remarked 'Tired of London, tired of life', which I think several hundred years later still rings true.

Talking of quotes I heard a good Noel Coward one the other day. Apparently America's first bull fighter in Spain (a loathsome 'sport' in my book) was hurt in the ring. A friend told Coward, 'Have you heard about poor Benjamin? He's been gored in Spain'.

'Goodness gracious what?' answered Coward

'He's been gored in Spain'

'Thank goodness for that', Coward replied, 'I thought you said he had been bored in Spain.'

It was Samuel Johnson, and his words were "When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford."

I agree though... London is pretty special and I'm hoping to be there this weekend!

Well did say 'or somebody', knew it wasn't Pepys I just couldn't remember his name.... the bull fighter's name is wrong too, I just cannot remember what it should be....

Have fun in London!
