DATELINE SO WHO IS COUNTING, FOR ACCURACY IT IS MONDAY 20TH APRIL 2020
Happy day for whatever day you want it to be and very special Happy Birthday greetings to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth The Second her birthday is tomorrow Tuesday, Her Majesty was born in a house on Bruton Street London W1 on 21st April 1926 wishing her many happy returns. Very sensibly The Queen has cancelled her 21 gun salute, she is a very sensible Monarch.
I hope you had a terrific Happy Easter and an awesome Pesach if that applies to you. This week on Thursday to be precise sees the start of Ramadan so if you are part of the community that celebrates this festival may I wish you a safe and healthy Ramadan.
What are you missing the most about the lockdown besides going to the office? I am missing my regular three weekly visit to the Barber Shop, I soon will resemble the wild man of Borneo and I am desperate for a hair cut.
A thought occurred to me, as flights are few and far between, as hotels, bars, clubs, restaurants, museums, attractions and venues are shut I have a question; is ANYONE OUT THERE in Conference, Incentives and Events land? If you are let me hear you say YEAH
