KNM Norge at full speed trials

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, STACEY!

Hurra for deg som fyller ditt år!
Ja, deg vil vi gratulere!
Alle i ring om kring deg vi står,
og se, nå vil vi marsjere,
bukke, nikke, neie, snu oss omkring,
danse så for deg med hopp og sprett og spring,
ønske deg av hjertet alle gode ting
og si meg så, hva vil du mere? Gratulerer!

Høyt våre flagg vi svinger. Hurra!
Ja, nå vil vi riktig feste!
Dagen er din, og dagen er bra,
men du er den aller beste!
Se deg om i ringen hvem du vil ta!
Dans en liten dans med den du helst vil ha!
Vi vil alle sammen svinge oss så gla'
og en av oss skal bli den neste - til å feste!

Golden Jubilee reporter eloquence

Paid attention to most of today's celebrations of HM Queen Elizabeth II's golden jubilee. Noted in passing some comments from the Sky News reporters of "the Duke of Edinburgh's keen sense of humour". That is one way to put it!

Also noted the following comment, on the Queen's new Bentley: "It cost ten million pounds to develop, and it doesn't even have a CD-player!" They later received a correction: "The Queen's Bentley does have a CD-player, in the armrest between the seats."

The celebrations were quite magnificent - it must have been loads of fun being in London today, and I truly wish I was there. It was also quite interesting to see just how much clothing one can make out of a single piece of string.
