Andy Ripley RIP

Andy Ripley was an English Rugby player who died recently. The Telegraph obituary quoted the following from his forward to his book about cancer:

"Dare we hope? We dare. Can we hope? We can. Should we hope? We must, because to do otherwise is to waste the most precious of gifts, given so freely by God to all of us. So when we do die, it will be with hope and it will be easy and our hearts will not be broken.”

I hope I can remember this.

King Ethelpiglet and the Coronation Stone

Piglet explores the sights in the Royal Borough of Kingston-upon-Thames earlier in the week.

Passing Out Parade

There I was thinking I was hot because I am in an office on the 2nd floor and it's a bit muggy up here. Then I saw this pic of a poor soldier rehearsing the Trooping of the Colour for the Queen's birthday. Am rather glad that rabbis' hats never got that tall :-)
