Today is the Queen's Birthday in Australia, (except in Western Australia where it is celebrated at the end of September/beginning of October) or rather the public holiday for it is. On an English website I read her actual birthday is in April, but the weather is better in June! Because in the Northern Hemisphere the season is summer. Forget about Australia - down here it's winter and cold. Anyway, being a public holiday and being a Monday, means a long weekend. (You know three days off)
I tried to come up with something that would tie in with this, something to do with queens and came up with the following -
Queen Victoria Market
(Well, it was named after a queen)
All queens need a crown.
Postage stamps and More
If you are a Queen, you get to have your face on a postage stamp. And money. Not bad eh?
I do think Queen Victoria had one of the most recognisable faces in the world, don't you? She always looked like she was smelling something nasty!
