Sunday is St George's day, celebrating the patron saint of England. The day doesn't have the same popularity as, say, St Patrick's day (could it be to do with the fact that the latter is associated with getting bladdered? Surely not...) but it is growing, as is the sense of pride in being English, which until recently seemed to be frowned upon. So this weekend my desktop will be proudly displaying the Cross of St George. If you want it on your screen, click on the pic to get the full size version. For more information and to buy St George's day merchandise (probably too late for this year, but you can get a head start for next....) click here. You can also join the campaign to make the day an official holiday. They have over 500,000 votes so far, but another one won't hurt....
P.S Another little celebration goes with this post, as it's my hundredth. Virtual cake all round.
