I just watched the video — I see what you mean. She will be on top form when she recovers from her injury, it takes time. She is so beautiful on the ice — regardless — honestly, what a talented girl. Grin (25771) wrote in reply to post:
You can post whatever you like about figure skaters, I wasn't having a go at you, I was just wondering whether those haters are getting to you somehow, that's all. Cause it is as if you are trying to prove that they are great (Alena, etc), but they prove it all by themselves — with their skating, etc. But I guess all fans are like that. Sorry — I didn't mean to offend you.
We went to the Church service this morning — it was amazing. I wanted to photo the stained glass interior for you — not worse than Notre Dame at all — just our local Anglican church, but I couldn't — cause it was a service, lots of people — people might have thought I was a crazy loon (lunatic) or something. My family went to the airport to see off our relatives and I am cooking a Sunday roast dinner — roast chicken with veg and gravy. I don't know why — but I am really feeling Easter this year — that Easter feeling. I think it is also because of the weather and we had lots of relatives over. In the Church today when the sun was shining through the stained glass windows and the Church choir was singing — it was truly heavenly.
Cantebury Cathedral — one of the oldest Gothic Churches in the world
St John the Baptist's Church in Pinner
Victoria Church in Stockwell, London — just a random usual Anglican church — not in a very good area of London
Churches in our area
St Anselem's — this is a Roman Catholic Church
St James — Anglican
This below is a very very special church. It is called different names — it is very famous around the world, because here is the bridal hymn was written — in this particular church — you know, when a bride is taken down the aisle to meet a groom — this is the hymn
Mendelssohn's Wedding March
It is in the City, in Fleet STreet. THey call it a bridal church, but also — a journalists' church — cause Fleet Street is the hub of newspapers in London, although the old Express building is now the Headquaters of Goldman Sachs. We go there sometimes with colleagues as well.
St Bridal Church, Fleet STreet, the City of London
This church is also popular with English politicians, I once attended a service there with tony Blair's wife Cherie — she was standing a couple of people away from me. But I hate Blairites, so not proud of that at all. I am just saying.
<nobr>P. S.</nobr> St Bridal Church in Fleet street is not only the mother of the bridal march used around the world, it is also the mother of the traditional wedding cake. If you look at the spiel of the church — it is three tiers, like the wedding cake. My mom in law has a «wedding cake» Victorian diamond ring — she gave it to me when I married my husband, but it is in a safety deposit box in the bank, as it is too huge to wear and is so big, it is hard to insure. I will pass it on to my daughter one day, when she gets married. Anyway, like my husband says — I talk too much. I am just in such a great mood at the moment — like — somebody stop me. Speak later.)
