I found this very rare picture, it shows Queen Fatima, the exiled Queen of Libya with Mrs. John Tappin, the wife of the American Ambassador to Libya 1954 - 1958.
All my life I wondered what Queen Fatima looked like as I could not find any pictures of her anywhere so you can imagine how pleasantly surprised I felt to find a very elegant lady that was the Queen of Libya.
Red Nose Day :o)
Today Britain goes Red Nose Day crazy, Red Nose Day is a fun day that is usually staged every few years and its for collecting money for charity, it is done with the help of Comic Relief, millions of pounds are usually collected to help the poor and disadvantaged here in the UK but mainly in Africa. It is something that the British public do best as they always prove their generosity by giving a lot of their money to this good cause. The money raised is split 2 ways, 40% goes to needy charities in the UK and 60% goes towards helping the poor in Africa.
Many organizations, businesses and schools take part in RND (Red Nose Day) its a day where you get to play jokes on your seniors and teachers, my children are taking part in their school, its a Uniform free day where kids can wear anything they want, it was strange driving to work seeing 100s of school children dressed in their normal clothes, many had red items on, some even had their hair sprayed red!
I am sure they will have a great day and I hope they manage to raise a lot of money for this good cause.
