I SWEAR I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP
We went to the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, and after MUCH pomp and ceremony and marching around by uniformed personnel and horses, the band started playing various martial tunes. And then, as the crowd -- at least my part of the crowd -- gaped in astonishment, the band played.... Copacabana!
Really. I have no idea why. But I do know I would not feel safe in a palace guarded by people playing Barry Manilow.

A REALLY BAD NAME FOR A ROCK BAND
(Also The Marauding Cassowaries, as well as Hungry Cassowaries. We firmly believe that no rock band with "Cassowaries" in its name would get much air play.)

UPDATE FROM LONDON
We stumbled into a little pub called the Nag's Head, where little appears to have changed since whenever it opened, my guess being 1327. The man at the bar took our food order mainly by telling us what we wanted to eat, and he was right. When I attempted to order a "lager," he looked alarmed and said, "What, don't you drink beer?" I had, stupidly, believed that lager was beer, but apparently it is not, at least not in the Nag's Head. So I said, OK, I'll have a beer, which suited him better, and he gave me a beer, and I have to say it was excellent.
There are also many historic museums, palaces, monuments, churches, etc., in London, and we have admired them all, including the gift shops. Also of course, as required by the British constitution, the government is having a sex scandal.
We're staying at a charming little place which -- like so many charming little places here -- was built before the discovery of plumbing and electricity. Both of these things have been added, but they are intruders -- random-looking pipes and wires snaking around in a haphazard manner, unsure of themselves, not working much, clearly temporary. Kind of like us tourists.

OK, here is the situation:
Jack Bauer has been captured by evil Chinese actors from a previous-season subplot and is being held prisoner on a Chinese freighter under horrible conditions. The only ray of hope is that Audrey is not on the ship.
Edgar is still dead.
Those are the main plot points. We do not expect anything to happen tonight.

I leave tonight for a week-long family vacation in a secret undisclosed island nation known for its exotic cuisine. I'll be taking the exclusive CrapCam and will post when I can, but I expect to be fairly busy, so blogging from me will be sporadic. I'm sure, however, that judi will

I wish you all a fine Memorial Day weekend. If you can, try to find at least a few minutes Monday to think about why it's called Memorial Day. Thanks.
