The Sun, the Empires on which it never sets and Rock n’ Roll are here to stay

It is foreseen, that the sun should not disappear over 3 or 4 billion years. Those who dare bet some money on these weather forecasts should win in the long run, though it remains to be proven that Solar Impulse is able to make it around the world.

What is for sure, is that the sun still never sets on the Commonwealth, and that even if  the night may be dark and cold in England, the Brits will find a way to sail over the 7 seas and that there will always be great music around Buckingham Palace.

Those who would like to read more about ongoing changes in Europe (and the rest of the world including usually sunny France) may click on the following pictures to reach series of eBooks.

Some things happen abroad, these days (even from a French perspective)

Not that the French could be as “mad” as the Brits about the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, or as interested as many other people about non French speaking rock singers, but they know they must watch abroad theses days, as real things happen.

Yes, things happen, abroad.

And for those who have already seen and heard the concert, who know everything already about the Jubilee, the Queen and England, the French and the World, or who just feel like reading about ongoing changes around old Europe in … French, well, they may e-read some French eBooks about changes and other relevant issues.

    

Let’s Dance and Celebrate Queen, Country, the Sixties, England and Rock n’ Roll Tonite !

HM the Queen was fair-play enough, to forgive the Pistols who spoilt a previous Jubilee of hers (1977) and Freddie who was quite outrageaous too (Wembley 86), and great enough to organize a revival of the Swingin’ London. (Live on BBC Radio2).

Of course, it was quite logical to celebrate 60 years of reign with the music of the sixties, and to invite both former Beatle Sir Paul (McCartney) and former eccentric Sir Elton John, but all must be grateful for her inviting beautiful Kylie Minogue (and Annie Lennox and several other great singers).

As regards Rock n’ Roll tonite, those who think they may not like watching 60 year old  British ladies twisting and shouting like in the golden era of the mini-skirt (and other beauties England invented in the Sixties and a few hundred years around) …

… may just listen to Madness on the radio on BBC Radio 2 http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/radio/bbc_radio_two/listenlive (anyway, the show on TV may only be watched on BBC One for internet user in theUK).

And those who would like to read on the Internet while listening to the show, may e-read some French eBooks about changes in the current years (which are and/or may become quite “Rock n’ Roll” indeed in many other places than re-swingin’ London).

    

“Where there’s a Willis away” … 1000 Ships, plus Cutty Sark, for Queen and Country

Last time so many ships were seen on the Thames River was 350 years ago, long before the Empire was built with united energy and intelligence, then preserved with great Royal talent. Even before the Cutty Sark sailed  first. Bravo @ all in Britain.

The old Lady (the Cutty Sark, of course, honni soit qui mal y pense) will be happy to hear what so many boats have to say about so many seas since so many years, all the more since she can’t herself sail “odlschool way” for Queen and Country anymore.

One may not always agree with the Brits, especially when French, but one must admit they did a great job at sea over centuries, even if one may regret not to see the Queen’s picture under the sun of the other side … of the world, in Hong-Kong too. Anyway, please Click on picture to hear “Rule Britannia”.

To wait for the naval extravaganza, the James Clavell novell “Tai-Pan” novel  is as close to pefect as possible. Otherwise, to read in French about less British changes in the world as it goes nowadays “the other side(s)”, please click on pictures.

    

Diamonds are Forever, So Queen Elisabeth and England Seem to Be : Happy Jubilee, Madam

From a French perspective, England and the UK may not have always been easy neighbours and perfect Euro-partners over the last millenium or so, but any fair-play French person must admit, that both this Queen and that Country are quite admirable !
