When You See This on a London Sidewalk

Make a Wide Circle Around It!

Funny thing is I never see birds in this tree. They must do their business and leave!

Dashing Dog Show at Kensington Palace

I am continually impressed how living in a big city like London, I still feel like I am in a neighborhood like the one I grew up in. Whether it is going to see the Kings Horse Troop salute Prince Philip on his birthday in Hyde Park with about 40 other people total out there . . . → Read More: Dashing Dog Show at Kensington Palace

West End Play Reviews- Blood Brothers

I went with 3 girlfriends to try to get last minute tickets for War Horse and there were only 2… so we decided to go see Blood Brothers.

You cannot take photos inside, but I thought the staircase was beautiful…

Most of us did not know much about it, just that it gets great . . . → Read More: West End Play Reviews- Blood Brothers

West End Play Reviews- The Umbrellas of Cherbourg

Michelle and I went to see The Umbrellas of Cherbourg when Barry had to be in the US. Here is a photo of the gorgeous Gielgud Theatre, which is quite small.

National Portrait Gallery Rooftop

As promised, here is the photo of the view from atop the National Portrait Gallery, where my history class had lunch after our tour.

West End Play Reviews: Deathtrap

Went on Wednesday to see Deathtrap at the Noel Coward Theater near Leicester Square. I went with the neighborhood club. They had gotten a good deal on tickets. I sat in Row D about 4 off center for 29.50 GBP! Not bad at all. There were people from St John’s Wood all over the theater. . . . → Read More: West End Play Reviews: Deathtrap

West End Theatre Reviews- Oliver!

As part of my Groupon package I got 2nd row seats to Oliver! It was a weeknight, so Michelle and I went…

One of the prettiest safety screens ever! Sometimes they just say "safety screen" 🙂

Can any show be bad from 2nd row center? I am thinking not, but I am sure there could . . . → Read More: West End Theatre Reviews- Oliver!
