The wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton is hard to escape. So what will royal sceptics do with themselves on 29 April?
There are several on this forum who for whatever reason have no wish to celebrate the royal wedding. So have any of you a novel way to spend the day.
My dad took me on a return trip on the Waverley from Glasgow to Rothesay in late '67 when we lived in Dunfermline. I know it was then because we past the QE2's shipyard a couple of weeks before it's launch. That out-towered everything along the Clyde.
I hope your still allowed to visit the engine room Seth Haniel. When I was on it it was a miserable day, but that didn't bother me as I just watched the engines most of the time, with the extra fascination at seeing the telegraph orders from the bridge be actioned live.
If the weather's good, I'll get my motorbike out and take it for a spin. I did the same on Charles and Diana's wedding in 1981. The roads were deserted and it was like riding around in a science fiction film where the population had disappeared. Probably won’t be that quiet this time as I don’t think the interest will be as high.
