Thoughts on today’s Coronation Service This morning, the entire royal family attended the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s coronation service at Westminster Abbey. Due to the time difference, I was not able to watch the service so I was... Continue reading →
Everyone has hobbies and one of mine is coin collecting. Yesterday, I finally bought a NUMIS album ($14.95 incl. 5 sheets; extra 5 sheets for $5.95) from the Royal Canadian Mint boutique for my coin collection, which I’d previously stored... Continue reading →
