Gentle Friends thank you so much for your kind comments and emails about Miss Hutton, she is bee-bopping along just fine. I think I have almost have made up my mind to clear out the "Basket" of WIP's, or at least the nearly done ones this year. It seems so silly to let these pieces languish without attention.... we'll see how that works out. I do have a couple of pieces I really want to get at!!
Last night one of the films I got from Netflix was "The Stone of Destiny" - 2008 -
......about the abduction and repatriation of the Stone of Scone by a group of University students Christmas day 1950. Starring Charlie Cox, Kate Mara, Stephen McCole, Ciaron Kelly and Billy Boyd. Although I knew of and about the ancient Stone, I did not know about this bit of its more recent history. I thoroughly enjoyed the film and loved the location shooting. I would recommend this film highly!! You can click HERE to read the Wikipedia account of the 1950 heist of the Stone. The stone was returned in April 1951 to Westminster Cathedral and St Edwards Chair.
In 1996 the Stone came back to Scotland and is housed in Edinburgh castle with the Honours of Scotland, but with the provision that it go back to Westminster for future Coronation ceremonies.
That's about it for today sports fans, thanks for stopping by do stop by again!
