Brits again! Oct 19, 2012

The Brits seem to be cleaning up this year - The Queen`s Diamond Jubilee, an enormously succesful Olympics and Paralympics, Andy Murray won the US Open, Ken Follett is all over it with "Winter of the World", sequel to "Fall of Giants" in what's been an amazing trilogy to date, and the TV mini-series of his book "World without End", follow-up to "Pillars of the Earth", airing this week on US television.
After "50 Shades of Grey", and now this from Hilary ----------- Proud to be British!!!
