"A queen stood atop a tower built of people. True, those at the bottom were bricks of basest clay, yet if those common bricks crumpled in their support, the tower fell."-Elenia-Robert Jordan, Crossroads of Twilight
Today is Queen of Elizabeth's (of England) 86th birthday.
In honor of her Royal Highness I hope you enjoy yourself an English treat; be that a cool looking cake, some kind of tart or a cup of tea, take a little time to toast the queen and remember how grateful you are to not be one of her subjects!
