News, but not the serious kind
A museum for the well-red?
I’m planning a trip to Britain, over there in England or wherever it is, and I want to make sure I see everything! At the top of my list is the world-famous British Museum.
Really? Yeah, okay, although some tourists find it less impressive than they expected.There have been cutbacks.
No! It’s THE British Museum! The Rosetta Stone! Priceless historic manuscripts!
Yeah, I guess they do have most of those Harry Potter books, although the kids have been stealing them.
My only fear is I’m just devoting three full days to the Museum, and that may not be enough to see everything.
Oh, I think that will be more than adequate.
Geez Blog Guy, you’re bumming me out. Number two on my list is Big Ben. Do you think I’ll be disappointed in that, too.
Not if you like chocolate.

The classic red phone booth in the center of Marton-cum-Grafton, near Boroughbridge, was bought by residents for £1, as part of British Telecom’s Adopt A Kiosk campaign which has seen more than 350 red phone boxes adopted by small communities across the country so far.
