As a history buff, a person addicted to The Tudors and having been fascinated with London since I visited at the age of 10, I was beyond excited for today's wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton.
As interested as I am in the details of the wedding, I also find it fascinating from an economical / political perspective. Dated as the monarchy may be, it draws hundreds of thousands of tourists to the country and generates millions for the economy each year. The marriage of Prince William and Kate is said to have renewed interest on a global level in Britain's monarchy, which will drive tourism for years to come. Good stuff :-)

You do the talking: Do you have pets? What are their names, and what are the stories behind them?
If you have more than one pet, what was it like when you welcomed the new one?
When we introduced Blue to our apartment where Rufus was reigning as king, we had to keep them separated for several weeks before they could be in the same room without getting defensive. Blue was Rufus's first dog, and Rufus was Blue's first cat! Now, they are old pals.
