First, thank you so much for all of the wonderful comments, great e-mails and supportive FB comments about Connor. He’s always been the Houdini Dog and this most recent episode is his equivalent of getting out of a straight-jacket in handcuffs… which is what he’ll be wearing shortly, along with the collar with his tags on it. We’re going to have his little black lab baby hold him down so he doesn’t escape again!
In more interesting news, the Guardian (UK) is doing a video series on Britain’s most beautiful buildings all this week. Yesterday, they featured the King’s College Chapel in Cambridge, which is a spectacular building. The various narrators discuss both the architecture and history of the buildings. Next up is Hampton Court Palace, just 11 miles up the Thames from London, and with a dual history over time.First it was a palace of Cardinal Wolsey, who then gave it to Henry VIII who then expanded it and made the workers finish it by candle-light. One hundred and fifty years later, William and Mary put their own baroque spin on the building, with bits designed by Sir Christopher Wren.
Check back on this link all week to see what other buildings the Guardian considers Britain’s Best.
